One&Only opens third resort in Dubai

One&Only Resorts has opened its third Dubai property, One&Only One Za’abeel, marking the brand’s first-ever urban hotel.

The dual skyscraper property is intersected by The Link, the world’s longest sky cantilever, where guests can dine in celebrity chef-led restaurants, swim in a sky pool and enjoy panoramic views of the city from 100 metres above ground.

The resort features 229 rooms and suites. Accommodation includes Sanctuary Suites which come with a massage table for in-room spa treatments, and Urban Suites specifically designed for executive travel and remote working.

Two-storey spaces also include the Skyline Loft and Villa One penthouse, which features a private cinema, gym and outdoor infinity pool.

Philippe Zuber, chief executive of parent company Kerzner International said: “At Kerzner International, we have long been at the forefront of pioneering hospitality experiences, and One&Only Za’abeel is no exception.

“We have set aside convention and reinvented what an ultra-luxury resort in the heart of the city can deliver, adding to Dubai’s dynamic skyline and embracing the soul of the city, this architectural landmark pushes the boundaries of excellence and vibrant city living.”

Among The Link’s culinary offering is One&Only’s newest concept, Andaliman, serving Indonesian cuisine with an interactive dining experience, and the brand’s signature Tapasake restaurant, which offers contemporary Nikkei cuisine – a fusion of Japanese and Peruvian flavours.

The resort also welcomes acclaimed chef Dabiz Munoz to showcase his global street food concept at StreetXO, and has a Bali-inspired Garden Pool bar.

One&Only One Za’abeel is also tapping into the medical spa market by introducing the Longevity Hub by Clinique La Prairie.

The Hub is set to offer “ultra-personalised wellness journeys through a distilled version of the Swiss brand’s unrivalled science” and will focus on three pillars: longevity, wellbeing and aesthetics.

Jan Tibaldi, cluster general manager at One&Only Za’abeel, said: “One&Only One Za’abeel sets the benchmark for ultra-luxury hospitality in a thriving cosmopolitan setting.

“We’re delighted to welcome guests to experience the soulful heart of the world’s most dynamic city – a place that is the centre of culture, cuisine and entertainment.”
