One&Only to debut Urban Resorts in Dubai with ‘spa that never sleeps’

by Jane Kitchen | 20 Apr 2018

Kerzner International Holdings, the owner of One&Only Resorts, has plans to introduce a new line of One&Only Urban Resorts, the first of which will debut in Dubai in 2020.

The One&Only Za’abeel will be set in the new One Za’abeel, which is being developed by Ithra Dubai, a subsidiary of Investment Corporation of Dubai.

The two-tower, high-rise, mixed-use development of One Za’abeel – designed by architects Nikken Sekkei – will be positioned at the intersection of the old and new business districts of Dubai, and will also be home to luxury residences, serviced apartments, and office spaces, as well as a retail area and a panoramic sky concourse, The Linx, which connects the two towers of One Za'abeel.

A 'statement swimming pool' will be installed on the top of The Linx, offering 360-degree views of Dubai, as well as a 'spa that never sleeps'.

"There is a duality to One Za'abeel, reflected in its two towers, that evokes pairings," said Mohammed I. Al Shaibani, chair of Kerzner International and executive director and CEO of Investment Corporation of Dubai.

"Timeless elegance with function, efficiency with leisure, tradition with modernity, inclusion and privacy.

"The paired concepts come together where The Linx traverses the towers, offering all those who get in touch with One Za'abeel one complete, bespoke, and very individual experience every time. That is why, it is very fitting that the first urban resort for One&Only opens in this development of the future."

The architectural design of each One&Only urban resort will be designed to celebrate the city — from storied landmarks to the introduction of cutting-edge new architecture.

One&Only Urban Resorts will retain a similar ethos to its Beach Resorts, offering intuitive design and a strong health and fitness offering.

Urban Resorts will also offer green spaces designed to provide a serene sanctuary year-round, One&Only Gyms with views of the city, and One Cycle and One Yoga. One&Only Urban Resorts will be home to One&Only spas that are open around the clock to serve guests as and when they need.

Suites at the One&Only Za-abeel, designed by Denniston International, will be able to be specially customised to suit the guests' needs, being transformed into everything from a children's playroom, to walk-in closets to an art studio.
