Dubai, on its never-ending search to break records, declared the opening of the ‘world’s new tallest hotel’ today, pipping another towering milestone in the town for the highlights.

The shimmering gold 75-storey Gevora Hotel appears 356 meters, or nearly a quarter of a mile, tall. The new record-holder is just a few minutes walk from its predecessor, Dubai’s JW Mariott Marquis, which is piped by just one meter. The Gevora’s first guests are expected on Monday, according to Emirati daily The National.

Gevora will have 528 guest rooms and suites, out of which 232 are Deluxe Rooms, 265 are one-bedroom deluxe and 31 are two-bedroom suites. The smallest room is a huge 43 square meters. The eye-watering room costs give visitors access to one of the hotel’s four state-of-the-art health clubs – and two luxury restaurants. Visitors enter the hotel through gold-plated revolving doors. The decor and ambiance of the hotel makes it more luxurious.

Dubai also has the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, which pierces the town skyline at 828 meters high. The hotel boasts a rooftop pool bar – 356m in the air, which is within view of the Burj Khalifa. Guests can enjoy magnificent views of the desert city Dubai. Other features include pool, jacuzzi, health club as well as a luxury spa and has five restaurants offering international and local cuisines. The hotel has six elevators which move at the speed of 26 km/hour and has a total of 3,859 stairs.

The hotel is three times taller than London’s Big Ben, 100 meters shorter than Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers and 56 meters bigger than Paris’s Eiffel Tower.
