About Angsana Suites Tower

The Angsana Hotel & Suites consists of twin towers situated in the heart of Dubai’s ever changing skyline, on Sheikh Zayed Road. Each of the two towers features a range of luxurious and spacious studios, reflecting Angsana’s trademark style of contemporary chic. Both towers are managed exclusively by Angsana Resorts and Spa whose main passion is to deliver world class services and provide total satisfaction among its guests and clients.

The main design criteria for this project was for the twin towers to represent a gateway that would usher visitors into Sheikh Zayed Road. The concept for the towers is one of a huge silver frame connecting the whole building as if it were the extended handle of a “rack-up canister”. With its glimmering finish, it is intended to be imagined as a precious piece of jewelry decorated with silver blades surrounding a shining piece of diamond, which is represented by the main glass body of the tower.
