the latest addition to dubai’s five-star luxury hotels the new sofitel&squo;s design has been inspired by victor vasarely’s op art movement and reflects sofitel’s passion for excellence and french art de vivre. the property has a large variety of rooms including 76 suites with panoramic views of either the burj khalifa or the coastline.
