The Dorchester Collection is launching its first hotel in the Middle East, as well as its tenth globally.
The Lana will open in Dubai's Burj Khalifa District in the fourth quarter of 2022, in a 30-story skyscraper designed by Foster & Partners.
The hotel's name is a combination of the Arabic phrase "for us" and the Hawaiian phrase "floating softly on calm water," and it refers to the hotel's location next to the Dubai Creek and Marasi Marina.
The hotel will include 156 rooms and 69 suites (21 of which are trademark suites), as well as contemporary interior design by Gilles and Boissier of Paris. Floor-to-ceiling windows, stone parquet flooring, triple-height ceilings, screen separators, and deep-soaking baths – some of which will be placed near the windows to maximize city views – will be included in the rooms.
The Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall are a 15-minute walk away, while Dubai International Airport is a 20-minute drive away and Abu Dhabi International Airport is a 75-minute drive.
Commenting on The Lana, 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, and a rooftop scene that will attract much attention. 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 is home to so many of our guests around the world.”
