How does it feel to work in the tallest building in the world&mdashthe Burj Khalifa
It is extremely exciting. I think about how unique the hotel is and how honoured I am to be a part of its continuous success. 

Favourite corner of Armani Hotel
There is something magical about our restaurant terraces. When the weather is pleasant, there is nothing better than having dinner al fresco on one of the terraces overlooking the Dubai Fountain Show. It is truly a magical experience. 

You sound very driven, where does that passion come from 
My passion is driven by the amazing team members that surround me. We work very closely as a team to make guests&rsquo stay unique and memorable. And there is no other way than teamwork to achieve it. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing you&rsquove put a smile on your guests' faces and that we&rsquove made their stay memorable. 

Most unique thing about staying at the property
Apart from being able to stay in the world&rsquos tallest tower, it is the first hotel ever to be built and designed personally by Mr Armani. Staying here is like experiencing his home.
