One&Only One Za’abeel redefines what it means to provide ultra-luxury hospitality in the heart of a city. Altering Dubai’s skyline, One Za’abeel is a landmark architectural development not just for the UAE, but for the world – and we’re thrilled to introduce our first urban resort in such a spectacular setting.”
