Armani Hotel Dubai: in the iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building

15 May 2011

It’s not cheap to stay at Georgio Armani’s hotel in the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Rooms normally start at around $600 per night, and suites can cost many times that. The 160-room hotel, which is the designer’s first, reflects his minamalist style and offers stunning views of downtown Dubai. The Armani Hotel Dubai will be the first of many Armani and Emaar properties, with hotels and resorts planned for Milan, Marrakech, and Marassi.

The Armani Hotel Dubai is a truly unique experience, melding the eponymous fashion designer’s elegant, understated style with an extreme address in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building at 2,716 feet. For his debut hotel, Giorgio Armani has dressed it in distinctive furnishings, fabric wallpaper and limestone floors.

Entering in the lobby, employees in Armani suits, seemingly recruited from modeling agencies, greet guests. They are struck by the lobby’s dramatic C-shaped leather sectional and Arabic-style arches — grandeur tempered by Armani’s signature subdued color palette — and by the absence of a check-in desk (that drudgery happens out of the public eye).

A host guides the guests to the rooms through futuristic zebrawood-paneled corridors trimmed with lights; the doors are flush with the walls and seem to float. In the 160 guestrooms, Armani’s familiar touch permeates every detail. Kingsize beds are wrapped tightly in checkered bedspreads like a birthday gift. The closets are intriguingly hidden behind panels, and the gently curving walls provide a subtly sophisticated reminder of the sky-high location.

A good cure for jet lag is the hotel’s outdoor pool and 12,000-square-foot spa on the third floor. It’s all a prelude to the on-site nightlife, which includes eight restaurants and a nightclub — at all of which fashion is (naturally) the theme. Global dance beats thump as videos of models in Armani play on a giant LED wall.

Elsewhere, hard-to-get Armani accessories are for sale at the hotel’s boutique, like watches and handbags from the Giorgio Armani Privé collection and an elegant selection of Italian sweets. Each of the restaurants dish out a different cuisine offering visitors a wide choice of culinary options that reflect the cosmopolitan nature of Dubai. Armani/Hashi presents a delectable take on traditional and modern cuisine and offers some of the best sushi in the city. Armani/Amal offers delightful Indian delicacies and a stunning view of the Dubai Fountain, which gives the city yet another superlative — the fountain is billed as the tallest performing one on earth.

8 May 2011

15th May 2011 – Grand opening for Hotel Galaxy Macau.

Eagerly awaited destination resort projected to be a major attraction for millions of Macau visitors every year

Galaxy Entertainment Group announced that Galaxy Macau, the newest and most eagerly anticipated integrated destination resort in the Cotai entertainment area, will open on 15 May, starting the countdown toward Macau’s biggest opening for 2011.

Over 97% of Macau’s almost 25 million visitors in 2010 were from Asia, according to Macau Government Tourist Office statistics. Visitors from mainland China and Hong Kong, which are considered the primary feeder markets in the immediate term, together totaled 22 million or 81% in 2010.

Accommodation at Galaxy Macau will be provided by three iconic Asian hotel brands: It will include the 250 suites and 10 floating villas of the Banyan Tree Macau; the 500-room Hotel Okura Macau; and the 1,500-room Galaxy Hotel, which will become GEG’s flagship Cotai hotel. The three hotels will be available to guests on the opening day. Galaxy Macau also marks the entry into the Macau market for both the Singapore-based Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts and Okura Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Japan’s most prominent hotel company.

Banyan Tree also brings with it the first Banyan Tree Spa in the Pearl River Delta. At 2,800 square meters, the Banyan Tree Spa Macau – the biggest in the Banyan Tree group – will include 21 treatment rooms as well as a private spa floor for its hotel guests.

Of the more than 50 restaurants and bars found at Galaxy Macau™ a number of them are attractions in their own right. Here the exquisite tastes of Japanese Kaiseki contend with Michelin recommended Cantonese offerings. Just across the gardens and around the corner guests can enjoy the best Korean barbecue to be found outside of Seoul. These are only but to name a few of the treats awaiting our guests.

At a total investment of HK$14.9 billion, the 550,000-square-meter Galaxy Macau is the first truly integrated resort property of its kind because it is the only one in Macau with real resort features.

Several pools, tropical and Japanese gardens, a traditional Japanese tea pavilion and private cabanas will dot the Grand Resort Deck area, making it perfect for private and corporate functions.

Upon opening Galaxy Macau will feature more than 50 international dining outlets. True to its focus on providing an authentic Asian resort experience, more than half of them will serve Asian cuisines, making it the widest such selection in Macau under one roof. The selection makes it possible for visitors to eat at Galaxy Macau once a week for a year and never eat at the same restaurant twice.

Rounding out Galaxy Macau’s resort offering will be extensive in-house entertainment across multiple live stages and clubs including the ultra-exclusive China Rouge, a hybrid private membership club, performance theatre, bar and restaurant conceptualized by renowned Hong Kong designer Alan Chan to evoke a modern vision of 1930s Shanghai. It is anticipated that China Rouge will instantly become one of the trendiest nightspots in Macau, drawing discerning clientele from around the region. Of particular note, Galaxy Macau is proud to announce its plans for a 9-screen, 3D, multi-function cinema theatre to follow later this year. Open to Galaxy Macau guests and the local community, the theatre will be state-of-the-art and the first of its kind in Macau.

The Real Napolitan Pizza at Rossopomodoro Restaurants

10 November 2010

The Neapolitan tradition
With over 80 restaurants around the world offering the traditional food and wines of city of Naples. The approach is unique, with all ingredients coming from businesses and farms in the Neapolitan region of Campania. The pizza is made with a natural leavened dough that uses only the best ingredients like the Caputo red quality flour and mineral water that we import from a region near Naples. It is the combination of authentic ingredients, traditional Neapolitan recipes and a true passion for Italy that keeps people retuning for a little slice of Naples in London.

What Rossopomodoro means. Literally, the Italian translation is “red tomato”. But it means much more than that. Ripe, red tomatoes lie at the heart of traditional Italian cooking, and we’re the kind of people who put our heart and soul into everything we do…especially our pizza chefs, who have all been trained to make pizza like in Naples, the heartland of Italian pizza..Red is also the colour of passion and here at Rossopomodoro they’re passionate, some would say fanatical, about making a visit to one of the restaurants as near as possible to eating in Naples itself..

Every dish at Rossopomodoro is made from authentic Neapolitan produce, cooked using traditional recipes and the best quality ingredients we can find from the celebrated Neapolitan region of Campania.

Buffalo Mozzarella
The D.O.P. (Designated Origin Protected) Buffalo mozzarella, comes from one of Italy’s most renowned cheese makers. Made from the milk of herds of buffalo in Campania, it is hand pulled using traditional techniques to create the perfect porcelain white colour, delicate taste and gentle elasticity. Rossopomodoro imports it fresh by flight to London several times a week, offering to customers the authentic buffalo milk mozzarella as it is supposed to taste, rich in taste and chewy.

Produced by Molino Caputo, the flour used to create the pizza dough is sourced from the best wheat in Naples. Caputo is a longstanding leader in the production of high quality Neapolitan flour and it is used by the best pizzerias in the region. The flour has a high protein content – a necessary element for producing our high quality pizza dough.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Italy’s DOP (Designated Origin Protected) extra virgin olive oil is made using only the best variety of minucciola olives, sourced from the beautiful Sorrento peninsula. Sorrento’s olives carry hints of the peninsula’s natural herbs and fruit, deriving its taste and aromas from wild rosemary, mint and lemon.

The DOP (Designated Origin Protected) San Marzano tomatoes used by Rossopomodoro are renowned around the world for being of the very highest quality. The flavour of the peeled tomatoes is enhanced by a special preservation and canning process which is undertaken in the area.

All Rossopomodoro’s pastas are made in Neapolitan town of Gragnano, which for centuries, has been the heartland of traditional pasta making in Italy. The pastas are shaped by turning the dough on traditional bronze moulds, which roughens the surface, allowing the pasta to hold more sauce.

Update on Peccati di Gola – Italian restaurant in Zhuhai

27 August 2009

peccati di golaNew business hours for the best Italian restaurant in Zhuhai. No more lunch time and extended time on dinner. This is a good news for all the people that works later and wants to taste the Italian food in Zhuhai area. Recently the parking in front of the restaurant became controlled by a barrier and is not free anymore. But, if you ask the manager to chop the ticket, you can pass through the gate free of charge.

We strongly recommend the “Parmigiana di melanzane” as starter and the “Pizza prosciutto e funghi” if you are fun of pizzas. But, if you want to have a real Italian dinner, after the suggested starter we recommend a “Pasta” with your favorite sauce. To finish try the “Panna cotta” or the “Tiramisù”, but also the delicious “gelato” (ice cream). Ask the manager to serve it the “Panna montata” (whipped cream) that is a must for the real Italian ice cream.
