The Armani Hotel, which is located in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, has been opened after a week-long delay due to disruptions caused by the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud.

The hotel, designed by Giorgio Armani, is located on the building’s 38th and 39th levels and features 160 rooms, multiple restaurants, a spa and an outdoor swimming pool.

The hotel is the first part of the 2,717ft Burj Khalifa to open to the public since the 124th-floor observation deck welcomed its first visitors in January, according to npr.org.

Burj Khalifa’s developer Emaar Properties plans to open more Armani-branded hotels including the next hotel in Milan.
