The Lana - The Dorchester Collection's new luxury landmark in the heart of Dubai

Dorchester Collection, a portfolio of nine of the world’s most legendary properties, and OMNIYAT, the visionary real estate development group, have announced that their new luxury landmark will be called The Lana. Coming from the Arabic expression meaning ‘for us’, The Lana represents a place of tranquillity and hospitality, evoking a sense of peace and belonging, and presenting an unrivalled lifestyle experience.

The Lana, with its 225 guest rooms, is located in the heart of Downtown Dubai and overlooks the vibrant Business Bay area. It marks Dorchester Collection’s first address in the Middle East. The Lana is a striking 30-storey tower designed by the award-winning architects Foster + Partners that perfectly captures the essence of its destination and brings an unparalleled ultra-luxury experience to Downtown Dubai.

With interiors by Parisian duo Gilles & Boissier, The Lana is designed to accentuate Dubai’s stunning vistas, with views of the Burj Khalifa, beautiful sunsets to the northwest and seemingly endless landscapes to the southeast. All aesthetic choices are reflective of the hotel’s prime location. A desirable destination for locals and international travellers alike, The Lana is just 20 minutes from Dubai International Airport, 75 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport, and a 15-minute walk from Burj Khalifa and the adjacent Dubai Mall.

The 225 unique guest rooms include 83 suites and all feature floor-to-ceiling windows and light-flooded spaces. The design is contemporary, inspired by the city setting, with details such as stone parquet flooring, triple-height ceilings, and screen dividers to create an ambience that is at once welcoming and discreet. Dark marble, rounded furniture, and soft hues of gold, beige, and olive are seen throughout the living spaces. A highlight of the in-room experience is the deep-soaking bathtubs, some of which will be positioned in the windows, affording occupants superb city views while they bathe.

Commenting on The Lana, Christopher Cowdray, CEO of Dorchester Collection, said, “The Lana is one of the most anticipated hotel openings of the year, 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.”

Mahdi Amjad, founder and executive chairman of OMNIYAT, comments, “At OMNIYAT, we are committed to delivering the highest standards of quality and design. The Lana, our newest property with the illustrious Dorchester Collection, redefines the standard of luxury. The Lana's sophistication, opulence, and design will undoubtedly make it a standout feature in the Emirates' picturesque skyline.”

A hallmark of Dorchester Collection hotels are the signature suites and at The Lana, guests will have 26 signature suites to choose from. Residential in feel, each of the signature suites are palatial and an open floor plan that allows for the surrounding lush tropical landscapes to flow from outdoors in.

The Lana’s Presidential Suite and Royal Suite afford guests to the hotel a new level of luxury. The 333 m2 Presidential Suite features two sitting rooms, specifically for entertaining, a garden room, a dining room, and an expansive private terrace that runs the length of the elevation. The two-bedroom Royal Suite, boasts an impressive 357 m2 of indoor and outdoor living space, wrapping around the north corner of the building.

Generous onsite amenities will be key to The Lana guest experience, and guests can expect the world-renowned concierge and engaging service that Dorchester Collection is known for. Arriving guests and visitors will be welcomed on the second floor, one level up from the water, with reception, a concierge, an indoor-outdoor social lobby space, as well as a pastry counter. The second floor will also be home to the secluded garden lounge.

The hotel’s fourth floor will be a scene all on its own with a modern Mediterranean restaurant offering indoor and outdoor dining as well as a private dining space. The fourth floor will also host an Italian café, with seating indoors and outside. The Lana’s signature restaurant and lounge are found on the hotel’s 18th floor and guests can expect an experiential dining experience unlike anything else in Dubai. Further up, on the 29th floor is the hotel’s spa, wellness centre, and state-of-the-art gym. The hotel’s rooftop pool on the 30th floor will feature cabana service during the day, and come nightfall, the space will transform into a lounge and Dubai’s hottest nightlife destination for revelry under the stars.

As part of the waterfront living development, Dorchester Collection is also managing the adjacent 39 residences with their double-height spaces, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and expansive terraces. Part of The Residences will be a podium with a selection of carefully curated food partners. In addition, the brand manages the 94 apartments at OMNIYAT’s architectural masterpiece One at Palm Jumeirah, Dorchester Collection, Dubai, which captures the essence of Dubai beachfront living through state-of-the-art facilities including a Beach Club and luxurious living spaces.
