High rise Dubai Gevora Hotel welcomes first guests

Gevora HotelLast week saw the official opening of the new holder of the title ‘the world’s tallest hotel’. Opened on the 12 February, the 528-bedroom Gevora Hotel in Dubai stands 357.8 metres above ground level and has 75 storeys.

The Gevora takes over the title from the nearby JW Marriott Marquis. The latter is just one metre shorter than the new titleholder. All 75 levels of The Gevora are packed with guest amenities which might give it a claim on the title of the planet’s best equipped hotel.

When arriving, guests enter the four-star Gevora via gold coated doors. After checking in, they will find they have access to an assortment of five eateries including the flagship Highest View Restaurant on the roof. The finest of Arabian cuisine and a shisha pipe go hand in hand with views which can only be described as sublime.

Three health centres with steam rooms plus a 71st level spa give a choice of wellness therapies.  In addition to the Highest View, the roof is the location of one of the world’s loftiest swimming pools.

The Gevora Hotel enjoys a prime spot on Sheikh Zayed Road and is a short taxi trip from the likes of Jumeira Beach. Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the United Arab Emirates and the world and is almost within walking range of the Gevora.

Even though the Gevora ticks all the boxes on location, amenities and exceptionality, nightly rates won’t break the bank. Gevora manager Jairaj Gorsia says rates have been pitched lower than the average in a move to woo travellers looking for quality at reasonable prices.
