The UAE’s first-ever Dior Spa has officially launched at The Lana, Dubai – the Dorchester Collection’s debut property in the Middle East.

Bathed in natural daylight on the hotel’s 29th floor, Dior Spa The Lana was designed by architecture and interior design firm Gilles & Boissier.

The 4,300sq ft spa – Dior’s fifth globally – features five treatment rooms and one couple’s suite. Facilities also include a futon for Japanese-inspired treatments, a dedicated beauty room and an elegant boutique showcasing Dior’s product lines.

The spa’s programming offering consists of a menu of signature Dior treatments complemented with modern beauty tech solutions supplied by Icoone Therapy, Hydrafacial and Iyashi Dôme technology.

More about The Lana

Conceptualised and managed on behalf of Dubai-based developer Omniyat, The Lana marks the 10th Dorchester Collection hotel worldwide and is the first new opening for the group in more than a decade.

Architecture firm Foster + Partners designed the 30-storey hotel which offers 225 rooms and suites and eight new dining concepts – four of which were created alongside Michelin-starred chefs.

The building's striking interconnected design features a central podium – The Lana Promenade – for retail and restaurants, as well as an infinity rooftop pool with views over the cityscape and desert landscape beyond.

Like the spa, the hotel’s interiors have been designed and executed by Parisian design duo, Gilles & Boissier, and incorporate a carefully curated section of more than 50 art pieces, commissioned by local and global artists.

Commenting on the opening, Christopher Cowdray, president of Dorchester Collection, said: “As Dorchester Collection welcomes its first guests in the Middle East, we’re entering a new era in our company's history.

“The Lana is one of the year’s most anticipated hotel openings, and we’re certain it will be celebrated for its remarkable design, superb location in one of the world’s most vibrant cities and a dining scene that will undoubtedly attract much local and international attention.”
