Dubai can be a weird city at times. It not only hosts some of the most luxurious hotels in the world but it also hosts some of the most fashionable in the world. To prove a point, we have all heard about the Armani Hotel that is slated to open in Dubai. However, the opening of the hotel has been delayed thanks to the Iceland volcanic eruptions.
Bosses from Europe have not been able to fly to Dubai as most flights are cancelled. The hotel is now scheduled to be opened on the Tuesday April 27. Georgio Armani and hundreds of VIP guests and celebrities are expected to land in Dubai for the gala event. The 160-room hotel would open in Dubai and soon after that the launch of the Armani Hotel Milano will take place.
Some of the other plans for Armani are the first Armani Resort, planned for Marrakech, and the first Armani Residences villas, for Marassi in Egypt. Armani hotels, resorts and residences would be started in other places like New York, Tokyo, Shanghai and London. 229 Emirates flights have been cancelled thanks to the Iceland volcano and the cloud which has engulfed all of Europe. It is now to be seen if the hotel opening ceremony would again be delayed, thanks to the flight cancellations.
