A report by the "Bloomberg" news agency monitored 6 amazing hotels worth visiting in Dubai that are expected to open in 2023, out of 12 hotels in the Middle East, indicating that there is an attractive group of options in the region competing to attract the attention of global travelers.
This year, a group of dynamic new hotels continues to look for new ways to stand out in Dubai, the largest tourism market in the Middle East and a city already known for turning fantasy into reality.
And with occupancy rates in the city's hotels during the first ten months of the year 2022 exceeding 70%, according to the Dubai Tourism Department, the report confirmed that this will not reduce room rates any time soon, even with the increase in supply thanks to construction work, quoting the design and engineering company. The architect, Gensler Middle East, said that at the end of June, Dubai had 773 hotels and 140,778 rooms, an increase from 714 hotels and 118,345 rooms in 2019, and that more will come this year.
When you’re opening in the Middle East’s biggest tourism market, in a city already known for making the fantastical a reality, you have to keep finding new ways to stand out. That’s what an array of dynamic new hotels are doing this year in Dubai. Hotels are busy—occupancy rates for the first 10 months of 2022 are above 70%, according to Dubai’s tourism department. That’s not going to bring down room rates any time soon, even with cranes and construction workers quickly adding to the supply. At the end of June, Dubai had 773 hotels with 140,778 rooms, up from 714 hotels and 118,345 rooms in 2019, according to design and architecture firm Gensler Middle East. More are coming this year.
We previewed this hotel, wondering whether it would be Dubai’s most luxurious hotel yet. The nearly 800-room property is set to welcome guests in February along two kilometers ( 1.24 miles) of beachfront on the manmade Palm Jumeirah. It’ll have dozens and dozens of pools, including 44 private infinity pools attached to suites and penthouses, and two adults-only pools. As for special Dubai touches, the resort will boast a helipad, “fire breathing” fountains and a tank with 4,000 jellyfish—described as the largest in the world. Opening February 2023.
The Ciel says it will be the planet’s tallest hotel, at 365 meters (1,198 feet) high. The skyscraper’s 82 floors will have more than 1,000 rooms. It’s being built at the north end of Dubai’s manmade (of course) Marina district, a lovely place to spend an afternoon walking around the promenade, looking at yachts, eating and shopping. Other than that, not much is known about the property, in part because the developer is still shopping for a brand to run the place. Opening in the fourth quarter of 2023.
The Five brand instantly became popular with locals and tourists—and known for partying—when it opened its first hotel in Dubai, in 2019. Now the company is opening its third property in the emirate, promising to “embody the authentic and unique vibe that global millennials love.” The beachfront resort will have an outdoor gym, an indoor pool, a paddle tennis court and more. Opening in the fourth quarter of 2023; rooms are expected to start at around 1,600 dirhams ($436) per night.
First there was a sail. Then a wave. Now comes the superyacht. The Jumeirah Group is finishing a 386-room hotel on the Dubai coast that it’s calling the final part of its trilogy. (The “sail” hotel is the Burj Al Arab, an emblem of Dubai.) Beyond the normal rooms and suites, there will be 83 luxury apartment-style suites, the hotel says on its website, all surrounded by landscaped gardens. And a dining concept that will combine four different restaurants into one venue. Opening in the third quarter of 2023.
From the company behind the Atlantis resorts in Dubai and the One & Only brand, Siro is aimed at those of us who are fit and loving it. There will be a two-story gym and fitness programs shaped by Olympic athletes. The first will open in Dubai late in 2023 in the same tower complex as a new One & Only luxury hotel. They’ll share restaurants and other cafe spaces in a horizontal, cantilevered section of the building called the Link. Opening in the fourth quarter of 2023; rooms are expected to start at $400 per night.
