One&Only One Za’abeel: Dubai got its first “vertical” resort – Travel And Tour World



Kerzner International proudly announces the grand opening of One&Only One Za’abeel, Dubai’s first “vertical” resort, marking a new era in luxury hospitality. Nestled in the pulsating heart of Dubai, this groundbreaking urban project seamlessly blends the brand’s signature beach resort vibe with the city’s cosmopolitan spirit.

One&Only One Za’abeel stands as a testament to Dubai’s futuristic outlook and the timeless allure of luxury hospitality. The resort is a masterpiece of urban architecture, boasting spacious rooms and a plethora of options for relaxation, active recreation, spa indulgence, and a deep dive into the region’s rich culture. Catering to both the city’s residents and global travelers, this project is a celebration of art and sophistication in urban living.

Philippe Zuber, CEO of Kerzner International, heralds One&Only One Za’abeel as a symbol of innovation in the hospitality sector. The resort not only complements Dubai’s skyline but also encapsulates its vibrant energy. Its architectural marvel, designed by the globally acclaimed Nikken Sekkei architects, features two towers linked by “The Link,” a breathtaking “horizontal skyscraper” that floats 100 meters above the ground.

Unmatched Elegance and Comfort

The resort’s interiors, crafted by Jean-Michel Gathy, are inspired by the local Za’abeel area, known for its “white sand.” Every aspect, from the soothing color palette to the sandy motifs in the decor, echoes the spirit and tradition of the locale. The resort’s accommodations set new standards in luxury, offering spacious rooms, suites, and the exclusive Villa One penthouse, which spans an impressive 755 square meters and includes an outdoor infinity pool, cinema, and gym.

A Culinary and Cultural Hub

One&Only One Za’abeel is a gastronomic paradise, hosting celebrity chefs and mixologists from around the globe. The Link pavilion is the resort’s vibrant heart, featuring culinary concepts from Anne-Sophie Pic, Bo Songvisava and Dylan Jones, Mehmet Gürs, Paco Morales, Tetsuya Wakuda, and more. Guests can relish contemporary Japanese-Peruvian Nikkei cuisine at the Tapasake Beach Club or explore the StreetXO concept by Dabiz Muñoz, the world’s best chef.

Revolutionizing Wellness and Leisure

The resort introduces the UAE’s first Longevity Hub by Clinique La Prairie, a three-floor wellness and spa center combining modern medicine with advanced aesthetic practices. With personalized programs in longevity, wellness, and aesthetics, it offers a transformational experience.

A New Chapter in Dubai’s Luxury Hospitality

Jan Tibaldi, General Manager of One&Only One Za’abeel, invites guests to experience this cultural, gastronomic, and entertainment epicenter. With offerings like cocktail masterclasses, sunrise yoga, art tours, and KidsOnly Club, the resort caters to a diverse range of preferences, setting a new benchmark in luxury hospitality in a vibrant urban setting.
