Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk will open its doors in October this year. Located in Dubai's Oud Metha, the five-star property was initially slated to open in late 2019.

Once open, there will be 498 rooms and 97 serviced apartments. It will have the Sofitel SPA with L'OCCITANE, a comprehensive gymnasium, an outdoor pool, private cabanas and a kids club. Business travellers will have access to 10 meeting rooms in addition to a 1,115 square metre ballroom.

Inside there will be a handful of culinary hotspots. Brassiere Boulud has been designed by famed chef Daniel Boulud, known for his double Michelin-starred restaurant in New York. There will also be Taiko - sister restaurant to the award-winning venue in Amsterdamby Chef Schilo Van Coevorden. The Nine will serve British gastropub classics while Bijou Patisserie will serve baked goods.

The property features a striking exterior - an obelisk shape harking to the hotel's French and Egyptian inspiration. Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk will be connected to Wafi Mall and sit next door to Raffles Dubai. The properties will share some facilities on a cluster level.
