One of the headline acts of Dubai’s exciting chapter of new openings is the SIRO One Za’abeel. Set to open its doors in late 2023, this fitness-focused luxury hotel is the brainchild of the renowned owners of Atlantis Resorts & Residences and One&Only Resorts. An epitome of holistic luxury, SIRO— an acronym representing Strength, Inclusive, Reflection, and Original— promises a uniquely restorative experience. Guests can access a bespoke support network of experienced trainers, coaches, and nutritionists, ensuring their stay is tailored to their health and fitness goals.

Meanwhile, nestled in Dubai’s vibrant Uptown district, the SO/ Uptown Dubai is another luxury establishment awaiting its grand opening in August 2023. This avant-garde hotel will flaunt 146 guest rooms and 42 suites, each with a luxurious and vibrant aura. From its numerous dining options to a wellness spa, rooftop lounge, and private cinema, the SO/ Uptown Dubai is a sanctuary of pleasure. Its crowning glory, however, is the stunning pool that boasts a panoramic view of the city’s skyline. It is conveniently located and offers easy access to Dubai’s most iconic landmarks, such as the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.

2023 also marks the year of culinary innovation in Dubai with the arrival of two culinary gems: the Blue Box Café and Leña. The highly anticipated Blue Box Café in The Dubai Mall, adjacent to the Tiffany and Co. store, will transport diners into the enchanting world of ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. With a menu curated by Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud, this iconic café encapsulates elegance and nostalgia, promising a memorable gastronomic adventure.

On the other hand, famed Spanish chef Dani García introduces Dubai to his esteemed steakhouse, Leña, this autumn. The restaurant will be in The Palm, renowned for its exquisite interior design and garnered the prestigious Restaurant & Bar Design Award in 2021. García’s rich culinary heritage, embodied in his internationally acclaimed restaurants like BiBo and Dani Brasserie, is poised to offer Dubai a captivating dining experience.

Sanskara, an immersive wellness retreat ready to greet guests this autumn, adds a refreshing touch to the city’s wellness portfolio. Tucked away in a multi-storey villa in Jumeirah, Sanskara champions a simple, clean, and conscious approach to wellness. A diverse array of innovative experiences, such as ice baths and infrared saunas, awaits guests, alongside locally-sourced dining and an open-air library for a tranquil retreat.

In summary, the calendar of new openings for Dubai in 2023 offers something for everyone. Whether it’s luxury accommodation, gourmet dining, or revitalising wellness experiences, the city continues reaffirming its position as a global destination of unrivalled luxury and innovation. It’s an exciting time to experience Dubai and its evolving charm.
