The 54-storey Starwood property is also just six miles from Dubai International Airport and houses 474 rooms and suites, as well as a number of serviced apartments.

There are seven meeting spaces at the hotel's dedicated conference centre, the largest of which – the Starlight Ballroom – is 360sqm and can take 375 delegates theatre-style or 400 for a reception. Natural daylight, state-of-the-art A/V and high-speed wi-fi are guaranteed and an outdoor function space is also available.

Dining takes place in one of four specialty outlets, including signature restaurant Feast or the al-fresco poolside eaterie.

Two pools, a fitness centre and the Shine Spa, which is scheduled to open on 1 January, 2015, complete the offer.
