IPL boss Lalit Modi may have made more enemies than friends of late, but he certainly has a friend in Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai.
The BCCI vice president was in Dubai for an ICC meeting, and rather than stay in the plush environs of the Grosvenor House hotel where such names as IS Bindra and Sharad Pawar were holed up, Mr Modi, decided to accept the Sheikh's generous invitation and stay at a property that is one of a kind — The Armani Hotel.
Located in the Burj Kalifa, the world’s tallest building, here, The Armani is the first in a series of hotels, resorts and residences designed by Giorgio Armani himself.
