Set across the 18th to 55th floors of the Burj Daman development, the building style is reminiscent of Madison and 5th Avenue in New York during the late 1950s. Complementing the minimalist furniture and multifunctional design is the clever mix of materials handpicked to ensure a slick, contemporary look. Marble, ebony, walnut, brass, and bronze have all been generously used to add to the luxurious feel of the hotel. In the guestrooms, volakas marble has been used to give a realistic yet premium look. In addition, light oak timber finishes are prevalent together with ebony trims.
The dark color scheme in the executive and junior suites includes brown oak, walnut, and metal bronze to give an executive, formidable identity. The presidential suite and three-bedroom apartments are resplendent with marble finishes that have been upgraded using black forest, magma black, corteccia, travertine, and ash blue to add a touch of intensity. The flexible spaces, enhanced by the floor-to-ceiling windows, make the rooms comfortable and liveable. The walls mix wood panels and textured material, enriching the rooms’ contemporary aesthetic. At Waldorf Astoria DIFC, the reception, restaurants, lounges, swimming pool, and spa are all located across one stretch of floor. However, the clever design layout ensures plenty of open space. The ALEC FITOUT scope included the complete fit-out from shell and core - all architectural fit-out and finishes, MEP, ELV, FF&E for the 5* hotel with 275 guest rooms and suites and 27 branded apartments.
