One&Only One Za’abeel opens in Dubai

The hotel is Kerzner International’s first "urban vertical resort"

Now open in Dubai, One&Only One Za’abeel is offering spacious accommodation, epicurean journeys, arts and culture experiences and wellness programmes. 

One&Only One Za’abeel’s rooms, suites and Villa One penthouse are among the largest hotel accommodations that Dubai has to offer. Designed by Jean-Michel Gathy, the interiors draw inspiration from the surrounding Za’abeel location.

The hotel is located in the One Za’abeel development, which features dual skyscrapers intersected by the world’s longest cantilever, The Link, a futuristic boulevard floating 100 metres above the street below.

The hotel’s F&B offering is housed within The Link, which is home to restaurants conceptualised by globally renowned chefs including Anne-Sophie Pic, Bo Songvisava and Dylan Jones, Mehmet Gürs, Paco Morales and Tetsuya Wakuda.

Meanwhile, Tapasake, One&Only’s homegrown concept, is set to serve contemporary Nikkei cuisine against the backdrop of the Dubai skyline and the UAE’s longest suspended infinity pool.

Harnessing the transformative power of health science, One&Only One Za’abeel is home to the first Longevity Hub by Clinique La Prairie in the UAE. Spread over three floors within the resort, Longevity Hub by Clinique La Prairie aims to deliver personalised wellness journeys through a distilled version of the Swiss brand’s science focusing on three interconnected pillars: longevity, wellbeing and aesthetics.
