Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre opens

Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre
In a city of superlatives, where each day seems to bring something bigger, brighter and bolder the leading global luxury hospitality brand presents something entirely different: the all-new, intimately scaled Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre.  At eight stories and with just 106 guest accommodations, Four Seasons Hotel DIFC is redefining the very meaning of luxury.

“People who come to Dubai have often travelled the world, experienced the best of everything, and have extremely high expectations – at Four Seasons, our role is that of facilitator, to anticipate and exceed, to personalise and to delight in ways that mean the most to our guests,” says Carlo Stragiotto.  Most recently posted at the legendary Four Seasons Hotel Milano, the multi-lingual Stragiotto views his team of 200 carefully chosen staff as personal guest assistants whose mission is to make business travel more productive and leisure time more rewarding.

Situated in the pedestrian-friendly DIFC – home to global corporations as well as art galleries, shops, restaurants and night clubs – Four Seasons is the perfect pied-à-terre for those with frequent business in the UAE, an ideal base from which to experience Dubai’s myriad amusements and diversions, and with its expert concierge team, a great starting point for a first-time visitor to the city. Chef Concierge Peter Wharmby notes that spring is a wonderful time to enjoy the city and recommends booking the Bed and Breakfast package, freeing up days and nights to explore the city.

Every aspect of Four Seasons Hotel DIFC has been conceived with flexibility in mind.  “No matter the hour of your arrival, the fullness of your schedule and the length of your must-see list, Four Seasons transforms itself into your own personal hotel,” promises Stragiotto.

The Hotel has created an exclusive haven for in-house guests just off the lower lobby – a flexible space where guests can host business meetings, or even set up an impromptu workstation for the day. For those who prefer to work alone, guest rooms and suites offer multiple options, including an ergonomic workstation, a sofa with coffee table that transforms into a desk or dining table with ease, and bedside task lighting and plug ins for those who like to put their feet up.  

Dining Out in Dubai
The DIFC is home to more than 40 top-flight restaurants and bars, including several new options at Four Seasons.  American celebrity chef Michael Mina has opened his first international outpost here, at the “modern retro” style Firebird Diner by Michael Mina.  Here, guests will find hearty American fare with a gourmet global twist – think wood-fired steak and eggs, lobster pot pie, truffle mac & cheese, and “chicken fried” wagyu steak.

“The choice of cuisines in Dubai is unlimited, but in the end, sometimes all you crave is a really, really great burger, and we will not disappoint,” says Executive Chef Matthew Dahlkemper, who notes that with a closing time of 3:00 am, Firebird Diner, which opened earlier in March, is already a favourite after-hours destination for the city’s club goers.  “Our menu is designed to be both familiar and surprising, and above all satisfying.”

Taking the drinking experience to a higher level, the Luna Sky Bar opens onto a wrap-around rooftop terrace with sweeping views of the Burj Khalifa, city skyline and Arabian Gulf. Head Mixologist Alexandru Avram and his team craft the classics as well as modern innovations and made-to-order libations, with an extensive list of premium spirits, fine coffees and teas, and paired bites. 

World Renowned Four Seasons Service
“True luxury goes beyond the fastest cars and the most expensive jewellery; the ultimate luxuries are intangible.  Time well spent, memories made, small moments of joy and surprise, peace of mind – that is what we offer at Four Seasons,” notes General Manager Stragiotto.

In addition to the many innovations found at Four Seasons hotels and resorts around the world – from twice-daily housekeeping to one-hour pressing, at-your-fingertips technologies and much more – guests at Four Seasons DIFC can also access personal shoppers, art consultants, business assistants and more.

“We have special relationships with retailers such as Bloomingdale’s and Harvey Nichols, and we can even arrange for in-room tailoring by Tom James,” says Chef Concierge Wharmby.  “Those looking to augment their art collections can access the services of the Lawrie Shabibi gallery’s team, which can set up private viewings, advise on purchases and arrange safe transport home.”
