The brand’s first "vertical urban resort" will welcome guests from 1 December 2023

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.”

This floating boulevard will feature culinary concepts from Michelin-starred restaurant chefs, including Anne-Sophie Pic, Bo Songvisava and Dylan Jones, Mehmet Gürs, Paco Morales and Tetusya Wakuda.
The hotel will also be home to an all-day dining restaurant and nightlife venue Sphere. Atop The Link is One&Only’s homegrown beach club concept Tapasake, where guests can enjoy the UAE’s longest infinity pool, plush cabanas, cocktails, and contemporary Japanese-Peruvian cuisine, backdropped by uninterrupted views of the Dubai skyline.
On level four, The Garden brings is another al fresco space in the vertical urban setting, with lush tropical greenery, a lagoon-style family swimming pool and a swim-up bar. The Garden also level features StreetXO restaurant by Dabiz Muñoz and an elevated Indonesian concept, Andaliman.
Seasoned hotelier Jan Tibaldi will lead the resort’s opening as general manager. He said: “It is exhilarating working alongside the team at One&Only One Za’abeel to bring this property to life. This new icon is a blueprint for the future, disrupting the concept of what it means to deliver ultra-luxury hospitality in a thriving cosmopolitan setting. Guests will experience a world within a world – a place to collaborate, celebrate and recalibrate in equal measure.”
