Marina residents, there’s a new local to check out just in time for the new year, as a brand new hotel has opened its doors in Dubai Marina. Found at the bottom end of Dubai Marina, Stella Di Mare boasts 369 guest rooms, three restaurants and three bars – including a stunning 31st storey rooftop spot.

Inside, you’ll find art-deco style rooms split into 252 king rooms, 72 twin rooms and 45 suites. All are fully air-conditioned and kitted out with high-speed Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, personal safe, mini-bar and 24-hour room service.

For dining, there are three options: La Fontana, an all-day dining restaurant, Triton, a fine-dining Mediterranean fusion restaurant on the first floor and Leonardo, an authentic Italian. Named after the legendary Italian polymath Leonardo Da Vinci, inside you’ll find life-size models of some of Da Vinci’s most famous inventions, as well as a standalone bar area.

Speaking of bars, you’ll find a further three inside Stella Di Mare. The Orphic Bar is a more casual lounge-style restaurant and cafe, whereas you’ll be able to get unique cocktails and poolside snacks at their poolside bar on the ground floor.

We’re most excited by the sound of Skyland, the rooftop bar on the top of the hotel. Found on the 31st floor. We’re expecting some seriously impressive views from this new spot.

Elsewhere, you’ll find a full-equipped spa offering an array of beauty treatments as well as an indoor jacuzzi, gym, outdoor pool and saunas. A unique, 1920s inspired grand ballroom for big events and glamourous occasions can also be found at the heart of the hotel.
