JLT's newest hotel, Taj Jumeirah Lakes Towers, has opened in the Dubai neighbourhood.
Opening to guests from Sunday December 8, the 200-room hotel was inaugurated by His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan.
The towering hotel has a sleek modern design but nods to both its Indian roots and Middle Eastern location via an eclectic mix of art.
Many of the suites in the hotel comes with private balconies overlooking Sheikh Zayed Road, Emirates Golf Club, Dubai Marina or the city skyline.
At the top of the hotel is the Presidential Suite, spread across 200 square metres. It comes with a fully-furnished kitchenette, private dining room, office and spa bath as well as fantastic views of the city. Taj guests also have the option of personalised butler service.
The hotel is also set to be a key space for events thanks to a large pillar-less ballroom. With capacity for 250 guests, it's the first ballroom in the Jumeirah Lakes Towers neighbourhood.
