Dubai is one of the world’s most important business capitals, with a growing global leisure market, so it’s important that we are very focused on the unique needs of each individual guest,” says General Manager Carlo Stragiotto, who arrives in Dubai most recently from the acclaimed Four Seasons Hotel Milano.Improvisation and flexibility – anywhere in the Hotel, at any hour – will characterise a truly personalised style of service at the new Four Seasons Hotel DIFC, along with a sophisticated, international style that reflects this city and the Four Seasons brand today.

Here, innovations abound. Two lobbies welcome guests by car from Al Sa’adah Street, or above by foot from the DIFC’s myriad shops, galleries, restaurants, clubs and office towers. A unique “living room” affords guests flexible space in which to work, socialize, relax or meet. An American-style diner provides a fun dining environment, while a sky bar with walk-up cigar mezzanine with outdoor terraces and panoramic views puts guests on top of the world. A private spa, fitness and relaxation sanctuary includes a quiet rooftop pool for a break from business, or weekends at leisure.

Simon Casson, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Dubai, agrees: “For those already familiar with Dubai’s sky-piercing architecture and over-the-top opulence, prepare to be surprised. Our Resort is an intimately scaled, luxurious enclave of comfort and style, in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic cities.”

Every guest room and suite opens to large terraces that take in panoramic views of the open sea and Dubai’s glittering skyline, and numerous sun-or-stars outdoor dining and event spaces take full advantage of the Resort’s incredible location. Mere minutes from all the pleasures and key business hubs of the city, Four Seasons Resort Dubai is an inviting oasis nestled in the highly desirable Jumeirah residential neighbourhood.

Experience the new Dubai: In celebration of its Grand Opening, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is offering several attractive opening offers and packages to welcome its first guests.

Stay in Style at Four Seasons Resort Dubai

Balconies off each of the 237 guests rooms and suites – some so large as to accommodate both a daybed and a dining table – offer sweeping views of the sea or the city’s famous skyline.  Inside, extra high three metre (9.8 foot) ceilings are accentuated by full height leather headboards above the new fully customizable Four SeasonsBeds in the almost loft-like environment. Luxurious details include convivial L-shaped sofas, shopping-ready walk-in closets and executive-sized desks for business travellers.  Silver-leafed bathroom ceilings and Murano glass fixtures cast a flattering glow as guests indulge in complimentary toiletries by Etro.

Many families and business travellers are choosing one of eleven Imperial Suites, each with large living and dining space, two furnished terraces, and easy addition of a second bedroom.  Three sumptuous suites on the Resort’s uppermost fifth floor include the Presidential Suite and Penthouse Suite, each boasting its own media room, private gym and panoramic sea views from the wrap-around terrace; and the Royal Suite – accessed by its own private elevator – with spa, gym, show kitchen and, at the heart of the space, a grand salon with its own piano, perfect for entertaining.

And, while both of these incredible suites are surely destined to take their place among Dubai’s most coveted accommodations, there is still one more surprise to come:  “We will soon unveil a very special freestanding villa hidden in the gardens of the Resort that will rival the very best accommodations in the Middle East, if not the world,” hints Casson.

Envisioned by world-renowned architects WATG, the Resort’s sophisticated seaside style is by San Francisco-based interior designers BAMO, with several of the hotel’s restaurants by New York-based Tihany Design. Arabic design accents highlight Spanish-Mediterranean architecture in this 14 acre (5.6 hectare) Resort, and luxuriant touches are everywhere, such as the incredible Seguso glass ballastraded grand staircase.  Throughout, Toronto and London-based James Robertson Art Consultants have curated a harmonious collection of contemporary Arabic and international artists.  Taking cues from the Resort’s shimmering textures and Arabic design accents, the paintings, prints and sculptures as well as unique mixed media installations express Dubai’s traditional past, and its inspiring future.

Where Dining Out is an Art, Four Seasons Offers a Curated Collection of Options

Executive Chef Gilles Arzur, most recently of the famed Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, shares his thoughts on the new Dubai:  “The appetite for rare ingredients and showstopping presentations is still very much alive, but we’re also seeing a return to the simple joys of fresh, genuine flavours, perfectly prepared and served in a welcoming environment, especially among global travellers.”

A self-described “health nut,” Arzur has been sourcing local produce that stars in lighter dishes that delight and satisfy, while leaving guests energized for the day in Dubai.  But not to worry he says, “Executive Pastry Chef David Peduzzi is a master of indulgence, whether for special occasions celebrated at Four Seasons, or a sweet ending to a wonderful meal.”

On the menus at Four Seasons, Arzur and his team are appealing to all palates at Suq, which means “market” in Arabic, where the open kitchens showcase his modern style.  At Sea Fu, fresh seafood with Mediterranean and Asian influences is served both indoors and out.  Beneath the soaring ceilings of the airy Shai Salon, guests are invited to partake in coffee and cocktails, light fare and traditional afternoon tea; while the cozy Hendricks Bar is the choice for business meetings over whiskey and cigars.

With the night sky its “ceiling” and breathtaking views of the Burj Khalifa and city skyline its “walls,” the focal point of the ultra-hip rooftop Mercury Lounge is the giant glass sphere surrounded by intimate seating pods and private lounges and towers with alcove seating, where guests can enjoy prime vodka and Champagne selections and shisha cocktails to the beat of DJs and live music.
