The hotel will be the group's second in the city; its first opening on Jumeirah Beach Road earlier this year.

Facilities will include four executive-style meeting rooms, a spa and fitness centre, an eighth-floor sky bar and cigar room, a 24-hour restaurant and a rooftop garden and swimming pool surrounded by private cabanas.

New York-based Tihany Design, which also designed several of the restaurants at Four Seasons at Jumeriah Beach, has been charged with creating the new hotel’s interiors.

Carlo Stragiotto, former hotel manager at Four Seasons Hotel Milano, has been appointed general manager of the new hotel.

Allen Smith, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, said: "Our entry into Dubai has been extremely well received by locals and global travellers alike, and we are very pleased to be able to offer them a second Four Seasons experience in the city.

"Together with our partner Bright Start, we introduced Four Seasons to the Dubai market last year and raised the standard for luxury hospitality in this incredibly competitive market. We look forward to building on our reputation with our second hotel, at the epicentre of the financial district."

Shahab Lutfi, CEO of Bright Start which owns Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, said the location of the hotel was specifically chosen to target 'high-end' business travellers.

"We believe our latest investment in the hospitality sector will further open up opportunities for continued growth and contribute to Dubai’s status as a major luxury tourist destination," he said.
