The success of the award-winning Four Seasons Hotel DIFC in Dubai lies in its surprisingly small scale, says general manager Carlo Stragiotto in this movie Dezeen filmed for the AHEAD MEA awards in Dubai.
Located in a converted former apartment block at the Dubai International Financial Centre, the Four Seasons Hotel DIFC is a five-star hotel designed by New York-based hospitality designer Adam Tihany.
According to Stragiotto, the hotel is unusual in the region because of the relatively small size of its interior spaces.
“Luxury in Dubai used to be about big spaces, large lobbies and dimensions that give that perception of grandeur and luxury,” he says in the movie, which Dezeen filmed at the Four Seasons Hotel DIFC.
“With this hotel, we wanted to have something tailored to lifestyle – an intimately scaled place where you feel very good.”
