This legendary New York hotel group is opening a hotel in Dubai
The UAE’s first Baccarat Hotel will be located in Downtown Dubai…
One of the world’s most lavish hotel brands, Baccarat New York, is making its way to Dubai for the first time, in all its glitz and glamour.
Set to open in 2026, Baccarat Dubai will be made up of twin tapering towers, designed by world-renowned architectural firm Studio Libeskind.
The ultra-luxury hotel will feature 144 rooms and suites, 49 residences, and four restaurants accented with Baccarat crystals and offering a level of elegance and opulence reflective of its heritage.
Offering uninterrupted views of the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Frame, Al Fahidi Fort, and the Dubai Creek, the hotel will celebrate the contemporary spirit, energy, and dynamism of Dubai.
The 250-year-old French crystal company Baccarat wowed luxury travellers when it opened its first hotel in Manhattan back in 2015. Since then, the brand has become synonymous with glitz, glamour, movie stars, and unparalleled opulence.
“The Baccarat brand celebrates the quality of light, and where is the sun more spectacular than in the Middle East?” added Barry Sternlicht, chairman of SH Hotels and Resorts, “Our artisans will work to create a spectacular property to take its place among the most revered in the world.”
