The Guinness World Record breaking hotel is just 1 metre taller than the previous record holder…

We first broke the news that a new hotel was set to be crowned the world’s tallest at the start of the year, and now it’s official: The Guinness World Records have officially named Gevora as the world’s tallest hotel.

And at 356 meters, it is just one metre taller than Dubai’s JW Marriott Marquis, which previously held the record.

Gevora, which spans an impressive 75 floors, features 528 rooms, five restaurants (only two are currently open) and an al fresco pool deck which looks out over Downtown Dubai.

The four-star, unlicensed hotel is set to offer guests some unique extras too, with a dedicated butler assigned to each room. It’s also got some pretty swanky interiors, including plush bedrooms, contemporary finishes in the lobby and a luxe-looking fitness centre.

But Gevora isn’t just for hotel guests, as it’s also home to a rooftop viewing deck, offering up spectacular views of the city. Tickets for the viewing deck are priced at Dhs100 for adults and Dhs50 for children, which also includes a voucher for a pastry tray and drink at the Le Veryon Cafe. It’s open every day from 10am to 9pm.

The opening of Gevora takes Dubai’s tally of tall hotels to the grand total of seven of the top 10 world’s tallest hotel’s all in the city. Others on the list include the Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Emirates Towers, as well as the JW Marriott Marquis.
