Located within Uptown Tower designed by internationally renowned architects Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill – architects behind some of the world’s most iconic buildings – SO/ Uptown Dubai is a 340-metre-high architectural marvel. A five-star urban resort with a rebellious twist, the hotel features 188 design-led rooms and statement suites, which merge a fashion-forward outlook with indulgent elements.
Marble bathrooms, rich fabrics, and dark wood finishes are accentuated with eclectic pops of colour and bold graphics, curating a lifestyle imbued with luxurious touches and creative expression. High ceilings and innovative design details play with natural light to create voluminous, open spaces, while panoramic views over the city, Ain Dubai and the sapphire waters of the Arabian Gulf offer a timeless backdrop to the hotel’s contemporary design.
Occupying the top 28 floors of the Uptown Tower are 227 signature branded residences, which include one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, as well as duplexes and a spectacular penthouse. The residences’ interior design complements the elegant, contemporary aesthetic of SO/ Uptown Dubai, while panoramic windows offer impeccable city skyline views. Residents will have access to an indoor pool, fully equipped gym, a kids club and creche, the Sky Lounge, and a versatile events space that transforms into a private screening room for ultra-luxe movie nights.
Alive day and night, SO/ Uptown Dubai is the go-to address for dining and entertainment with five exciting in-house concepts that pay homage to the hotel’s chic DNA, all expertly curated by Ennismore’s F&B concept lab, Carte-Blanched.
