Arabian nights: The new Sheraton Grand Hotel in Dubai

November 2015
Soaring skyward since April on Sheikh Zayed Road, one of the main thoroughfares of Dubai,
has been the newly opened Sheraton Grand Hotel. The imposing 54-storey hotel is in the perfect spot for reaching the aspiring business district of Dubai, as well as the most important tourist attractions of the city. Not only is it ideal for business travellers, it is also the best location for guests from all over the world who want to experience every aspect of the Arabian metropolis.

The Abdulsalam Al Rafi Group development office and Erga Architects were fellow collaborators in the creation of the new Sheraton Grand Hotel. The building is the first new Sheraton chain hotel in Dubai for 30 years and the complex boasts a spacious business centre, a rooftop pool, three restaurants and lounges, the Sheraton Club and a fitness area.

Sheraton Shine Spa
A special feature of the new hotel is the Sheraton Shine Spa on the 52nd floor. Its interior design, like that of the rest of the hotel, was the brainchild of the renowned WA International designer team: an inviting and relaxing area of 1000 square metres encompassing an indoor pool, sauna, ice fountain, steam room and generous quiet zones. To emphasize the exclusive atmosphere of the spa, the planners relied on selected design highlights in the furnishings. These include the Lulu series of fittings from Dornbracht. The linear design language fits perfectly into the puristic environment and its elegance on the washbasins is a real highlight.

Feel-good bathrooms
The importance of comfort and ambience is a principle that continues in the elegant hotel bathrooms. Luxury on a smaller scale, they are like personal micro-spas, where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of a city with more than a million inhabitants. High-quality Dornbracht products make a powerful contribution to the furnishings as well. Relax with a BigRain rain panel for that open-air shower experience, while MEM and Deque series fittings further emphasize the discerning and aesthetic overall approach. The design of these two series is both tasteful and contemporary, accentuating the clean lines of the hotel design concept. Dornbracht's modular Symetrics system also had a part to play. Planners are given a great deal of creative freedom to position the outlets and control elements to their best effect.

Accommodation with style
The bathrooms are part of a sophisticated design concept that is reflected in all the hotel's 416 rooms, 58 suites and 180 premium apartments. Not only are guests welcomed by a stylishly coordinated colour and light concept, but also by unique and spectacular views over the Dubai skyline.
