One & Only will open its first urban resort in Dubai


Dubai is set to become home to its first One&Only Urban Resort. The One&Only One Za’abeel will be part of a two tower high rise complex that will include luxury residences, serviced apartments, and office spaces. The towers will also be home to The Gallery, a retail podium and lastly the Linx which will be a panoramic sky concourse connecting the two towers.

The One&Only Urban Resort will be an oasis in the city for business, family and leisure travellers, as well as local residents. It promises to challenge the conventional city hotel experience offering green spaces, gyms with a spectacular view of the city, and One Cycle and One Yoga to guarantee a rejuvenating workout. The resort’s suites will be customizable with the ability to transform into everything from a children’s playroom, walk-in closets to an art studio. Specially designed suites for children are also on the cards.

“Our ambition is to become part of the soul of any city we enter,” said Michael P. Wale, Chief Executive Officer, Kerzner International. “We are thrilled to be introducing One&Only to the urban space, providing something completely different for our discerning guests, delivered with our renowned personalized experience. Iconic buildings such as One Za’abeel are the perfect locations for One&Only Urban Resorts. We are proud One&Only One Za’abeel is part of the foundation of the next generation of the destination.”
