But we’ll have to wait until 2020 to check it out…

As well as swanky hotel openings happening this year, which include W The Palm, Caesars Palace and Emerald Palace Kempinski, we’ve got plenty of new hotels to check out before 2020. And a new one has just been added to that list, as Dubai is set to get the first One & Only urban resort.

Developed by Kerzner, the company behind Atlantis The Palm and One&Only, the urban resort will open in One Za’abeel, Downtown, in 2020. 

Although few details about the hotel have been released, the company is promising the same ‘glamour and style’ of its Beach Resorts. However with the urban resorts, there will be a stronger focus on business travelers, with state of the art meeting rooms and conference facilities and a round the clock spa. Perfect for a pre-meeting blow dry or post-conference call massage.

The two-towers of One Za’abeel will be connected by The Links, a panoramic sky concourse that’s sure to be a must-visit for guests at the hotel. The world’s largest cantilever, it floats an impressive 100 metres above the ground, and will offer some pretty spectacular views across Downtown Dubai and Old Town.

There will also be a swimming pool on the top, where you’ll be able to take a dip while enjoying 360 degree views of Dubai. 

As well as the new One&Only, the two-tower, high-rise One Za’abeel also incorporates luxury residences, serviced apartments, office spaces, and a retail podium.

We can’t wait to see it take shape…
