– Christopher Cowdray

Hotel group Dorchester Collection and real estate development group Omniyat have joined forces to create a new luxury hotel named The Lana.

The 225-room destination will open in Q4 2022 in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa district inside a 30-storey tower designed by architecture firm Foster + Partners.

Situated next to the Dubai Creek and Marasi Marina, The Lana will mark the Dorchester Collection’s debut location in the Middle East.

Parisian interior design duo Gilles & Boissier are designing the hotel and drawing on inspiration from the hotel’s waterside urban location to create a contemporary yet luxurious feel.

The hotel’s spa, wellness centre and state-of-the-art gym will be located on the tower’s 29th floor, promising striking views of the Burj Khalifa and richly coloured sunsets. Meanwhile, the floor above will accommodate a rooftop pool area featuring cabana service.

Additional facilities will include an indoor-outdoor social lobby space, a secluded garden lounge, a patisserie, Italian café, signature restaurant and lounge.

Christopher Cowdray, CEO of Dorchester Collection, said: “The Lana is one of the most anticipated hotel openings of 2022, given its incredible design-led credentials in a superb location in one of the world’s most vibrant cities.

“We’re looking forward to bringing Dorchester Collection’s renowned brand of luxury hospitality combined with Omniyat’s real estate vision to a new region that’s home to so many of our guests around the world.”

As part of the waterfront living development, Dorchester Collection is also managing the adjacent 39 residences.

Part of The Residences will be a podium with a mixed-use retail facility including carefully selected retail and food partners.

In addition, the brand manages 94 apartments at Omniyat’s nearby destination, One at Palm Jumeirah, Dorchester Collection, Dubai.
