You can now visit the world’s tallest hotel’s viewing deck—for a price.
It scooped a Guinness World Record when it opened this month, claiming the title of the tallest hotel in the world.
And you don’t need to be a guest to check out the view from the 356-metre-high tower, it has just been revealed.
Gevora, the 75-floor hotel situated in the Trade Centre area on Sheikh Zayed Road, has officially opened its viewing deck to visitors.
It costs Dhs100 to access the rooftop viewing platform, which offers sprawling views of the Burj Khalifa and Emirates Towers (so yes, you can see the world’s tallest building from the world’s tallest hotel).
Here’s what to expect:
For visitors under 12, tickets cost Dhs50, and access is free for children under six years old.
Full-price ticketholders get a free coffee and pastry included at the hotel’s Le Veyron cafe too, with the deck open for business between 10am and 9pm daily.
The four-star Gevora shunted the 355-metre-high JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Business Bay into second place for world’s tallest hotel when it opened on February 12.
The 528-room establishment features an Instagram-worthy open-air pool on its 12th floor, as well as plenty of gold accents, cool geometric shapes and contemporary finishes.
Gevora also houses a fully equipped health club with a steam room and sauna, a jacuzzi and kids’ pool.
Dining-wise, the hotel has five options, with specialty coffee shop Le Veyron and all-day dining restaurant Gevora Kitchen, which offers buffet and a la carte dishes, open now.
From mid-March, Gevora will add Middle Eastern inspired fine-dining eatery Level Twelve to its mix, along with the 12th-floor Overview Pool Lounge and rooftop Highest View Lounge, which will serve up Arabic and international dishes as well as shisha.
Judging by the pictures, the rooms look pretty opulent, with metallic touches and plush furnishings—and all guests can use a butler service, whatever type of room they have.
Gevora joins a list of toweringly tall hotels around the world, including Kuala Lumpur’s Four Seasons Place, Thailand’s Baiyoke Tower II and China’s Wuxi Maoye City – Marriott Hotel.
Gevora aside, Dubai also houses a significant number of the world’s highest hotels (aside from the JW Marriott Marquis), such as the Rose Rayhaan by Rotana, Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel.
We’re looking forward to taking our staycations to new heights in the near future…
