SLS Dubai Hotel & Residences is a partnership between sbe ( www.sbe.com ), a leading international hospitality group that develops, manages and operates award-winning global hospitality brands and World of Wonders Real Estate Development. The property is the expansion of the SLS brand with the first SLS property in the Middle East. The property is already more than 60% completed and is set to open in Q3 2020.
SLS Dubai is a 75-storey tower mixed project with combination of 254 expertly designed hotel rooms, 371 residential units, 321 hotel apartments and will be one of the tallest hotels and residences in the region. The property will also feature sbe signature culinary concepts Fi’lia and Carna, sbe's mixology lounge in the lobby, as well as signature rooftop nightlife venue, Privilege. Located in the Downtown district, the property offers spectacular, unobstructed views of the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa, as well as Dubai Creek. Two magnificent infinity pools are situated atop the 75-storey tower offering an incomparable 360-degree aspect of Dubai, making the pools among the highest not just in the city, but globally.
The SLS brand is an integral part of sbe's global expansion, with plans for 25 additional locations nationally and internationally in cities including Washington D.C, Buenos Aires and Cancun. SLS Dubai will be an essential piece of sbe’s development in the Middle East that comes on the heels of successful openings of Katsuya in Kuwait City, Dubai and most recently Abu Dhabi. This success of SLS Dubai also speaks to the monumental growth of sbe's residential platform with 1,300 branded residential units sold to-date, valued at $2 billion with another $2 billion more in the pipeline. In October 2018, sbe entered into a partnership with Accor, following the latter’s acquisition of a 50% stake in sbe. This long-term investment will allow sbe to leverage AccorHotels' leading global hospitality platform while remaining an independent luxury lifestyle operator.
