Located along the Dubai Water Canal, The St. Regis Downtown, Dubai is close to popular attractions and landmarks, including The Dubai Mall.

Guests can also enjoy a short drive to Dubai Design District, and the International Financial Centre.

Marriott International Europe, Middle East & Africa vice-president Candice D’Cruz said: “Dubai’s downtown district is a sought-after destination for global travellers and showcases the Emirate’s innovative vision, making it an ideal location for the St. Regis brand’s avant-garde style and highly personalised service.

“This opening is an exquisite addition to our illustrious portfolio of luxury properties in the region and perfectly unites the spirit of the city with the timeless glamour of St. Regis.”

The hotel has 298 guest rooms and suites featuring floor to ceiling windows, open bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes, and coral inspired wall sculptures.

It also has The St. Regis Spa that features six treatment suites and offers bespoke treatments, an exclusive fitness centre equipped with a range of cardio and strength equipment and an outdoor infinity pool.

Dining venues include Italian restaurant Basta! and Bleu Blanc Oysters & Grill, The Library and the St Regis Bar.

The St. Regis Downtown, Dubai has seven multi-purpose and flexible meeting rooms each equipped with advanced technology.

Additionally, the property will debut Astor Ballroom in March 2022 with 564m2 of event space.
