The tower was originally launched in 2016 as "S Residence by Immo Prestige" and piling was completed.
In 2018 the project was taken over by The First Group and a new design was launched under the name of Ciel Tower.
Ciel Tower has 1,042 guest rooms including 150 suites along with restaurants, cafes and a business lounge.
The supertall height of the building was increased to 365 metres, higher than the original design. The top of the tower has a glass observation deck providing panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah, Blue Waters Island, Dubai Harbour and the Arabian Gulf.
Visitors will also be able to take in the sights from a rooftop swimming pool and restaurants.
The hotel was designed in a Japanese style by Yahya Jan of architectural firm NORR.
NORR is behind some of Dubai's best-known landmarks, including the Atlantis and Shangri-La Hotels.
Jan was tasked with designing the skyscraper on a triangular plot of land at Dubai Marina with an area of just 2,500 square meters, small for a building of that height.
The architect says that 'the curved forms of the glass and metal building are meant to gently reflect in the setting sun, while the design scheme emphasizes the verticality of the tower and is meant as a response to vertical living'.
The design won three prizes at the International Property Awards in December 2019, for Best International Hotel Architecture, Best Hotel Architecture Arabia, and Best High-rise Architecture Arabia.
Ciel stands 365 metres high, making it the world’s tallest hotel, nine metres taller than Gevora Hotel, also in Dubai.
The project is energy efficient, using 25% less power for air conditioning than is typical for similar buildings.
Ciel Tower takes its name from the French word for 'sky'.
