Raffles Dubai Just Unveiled The Middle East‘s ‘Most Luxurious Floor’

 Raffles Dubai put the world’s most expensive dress on display last fall, and leave it to them to outdo themselves in a matter of months (who else could, really?).

 This spring Raffles is introducing what they call the Middle East’s most luxurious floor — a 21,500 square-foot “space” that takes up most of the 14th level of the hotel. That’s right, a private floor with six rooms, a spa, hair salon, majlis (that’s meeting room, in basic terms), three private kitchens and a cinema that seats nine. Damn! (but watch your language if you see it, ok?)

Not impressed, you snort? Pfft. Fine. How about access via a private elevator, 24-hour check in, a private limousine service and chauffeur, customized linens, a private chef, and a dedicated butler? Sound good? Sounds like another case of Dubai being as flossy as they wanna be. Don’t hate!

“A lot of the hotel guests travel with a big entourage and sometimes book half a floor,” a hotel employee has said. “The Dubai Floor is perfect for this type of guest as they’ll have a whole floor for themselves and privacy. This what makes it unique.”

Check out the photo gallery of the über luxurious floor. Are you impressed? Raffles thinks it’s a nice spot for large families, newlyweds, and private screenings. Ohhkay.

Prices aren’t yet available for this floor, but considering the current starting room rates at Raffles are around $1,295 a night, the full beauty of this floor will probably not be realized by short-pocket people.

Still, it looks good, though, huh? And eye-candy doesn’t put pounds on your hips.
