Emirates Hotel Tower, also known as Emirates Tower Two, is a 52-level luxury hotel operated by Jumeirah Group. It ranks as the 48th-tallest building in the world. It is the world’s third-tallest ‘hotel’ building. One of the main features is the huge atrium that rises 31 floors, starting at level 11, and looking westward across the Gulf.


Al Abbar Group overcame the significant technical challenges of cladding this uniquely shaped building.

The slender triangular towers are clad in silver aluminium panels, allowing the buildings to reflect the sun’s light as it moves around the building. Key objectives in the design of the Emirates Towers was to create the composition and placement of the twin towers to appear to be constantly changing, depending on the point of view and time of day. A 30-metre high atrium provides an architectural attraction for the hotel tower.
