The towering Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk is opening soon, and Hotelier Middle East was granted a sneak peek inside ahead of the launch.
Located in Dubai’s Oud Metha, the five-star property is a huge obelisk-shaped building.
Once open, there will be 498 rooms and 97 serviced apartments. It will have the Sofitel SPA with L’OCCITANE, a comprehensive gymnasium, an outdoor pool, private cabanas and a kids club. Business travellers will have access to 10 meeting rooms in addition to a 1,115 square metre ballroom.
F&B includes Brasserie Boulud, from French chef Daniel Boulud, known for his double Michelin-starred restaurant in New York. There will also be Taiko, a sister restaurant to the award-winning venue in Amsterdam by Chef Schilo Van Coevorden and The Nine, a British gastropub.
Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk will be connected to Wafi Mall and sit next door to Raffles Dubai. The properties will share some facilities on a cluster level.
