Glitterati from Dubai society celebrated the essential mix of modern elegance and rich local heritage of Conrad Dubai when Hilton Worldwide’s luxury brand held its official hotel opening ceremony earlier.
More than 400 of Dubai’s elite crowd were enthralled by a cavalcade of thoughtfully planned cultured events threading the arts, music and cuisine into a seamless blend designed to capture the quintessential stylish and intuitive spirit that is Conrad Hotels & Resorts.
On arrival, guests were greeted by a carnival of colour, light and sounds that included fire dancers, an authentic live Arabic art experience of Ayyalah dance and the famous celebratory, rhythmic, chanting dance drawn from Middle East history.
Drawing on his extensive culinary experience, Conrad Dubai’s Michelin chef, Massimo Mantarro, produced an exclusive menu for the event, creating cuisine to reflect the contemporary lifestyle credentials of the hotel and the occasion.
John Vanderslice, global head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Worldwide, said: “The official opening event perfectly captured the essential characteristics of the Conrad brand offering guests personalised experiences with sophisticated, locally inspired surroundings and connections to people and places around the corner, and half way around the world.”
