Dubai's Gevora, the new tallest hotel in the world, opens

Dubai: Shaikh Zayed Road’s status as the destination for skyscraper records has just been reinforced. The Gevora Hotel — developed by the Al Attar Group — will from Monday lay claim to be the “world’s tallest hotel”, at 356 metres and 53 centimetres high. That makes it a metre taller than the previous holder of the title, the JW Marriott Marquis, just down the road from it.
The new property’s claims to the title have been confirmed by Guinness Book of World Records.

The ground plus 75-storey property is the Al Attar’s Group’s first move into hospitality, and will be extended by the addition of another one — a G+60 storey — in the Tecom area. A third one is in the planning stages, according to a senior official.
The Gevora will have 528 rooms and have rack rates from Dh600 a night to Dh2,000 for a two-bedroom unit. It cost upwards of Dh500 million to build and takes up a 30 square metre plot.

“The plot size is more or less the standard for towers on SZ Road,” said Jairaj Gorsia, General Manager for the property. “The Al Attar Group wanted to use this particular plot for a hospitality venture after having already built mixed-used towers elsewhere on SZ Road.
“The 528 rooms adds to the existing 22 hotels already on this stretch, each with an average of 250-300 rooms.”
