Dubai's skyline is about to get more luxurious with the opening of The Lana.
Set to open its doors on February 1, 2024, The Lana, a proud member of the Dorchester Collection, is poised to become a landmark destination in Dubai's already illustrious hospitality sector. Perfectly situated in the bustling heart of Downtown Dubai, with commanding views over the vibrant Business Bay, The Lana promises to be an oasis of luxury and refinement in a city globally renowned for its extravagance and pioneering spirit. This prestigious hotel will boast 225 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites, alongside the exclusive Lana Residences. Each space within the hotel is a masterpiece of design, crafted by the acclaimed Gilles & Boissier, who have skillfully woven traditional motifs with modern aesthetics to reflect the dynamic and spirited character of Dubai.
The Lana's architectural grandeur, a creation of the world-famous Foster + Partners, stands as a symbol of the harmonious blend of natural elements—where the water of the bay meets the urban skyline. This blend is not just a testament to architectural prowess but also a reflection of Dubai's unique geographical tapestry. The building's design and location at the intersection of water, land, and sky are emblematic of Dubai's ambition to continually push the boundaries of what is possible. The opening of The Lana marks the beginning of a new era in Dubai's hospitality scene, one that promises to elevate the standards of luxury and elegance to unprecedented heights.
The Lana not only promises unparalleled accommodation but also heralds a new era of dining sophistication in Downtown Dubai. Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a variety of culinary experiences, each unique in its offering and ambiance. These include Jara by Martín Berasategui, set to become the first Basque cuisine restaurant in the Middle East, and Riviera by Jean Imbert, a modern Mediterranean eatery inspired by Imbert's heritage and travels. High Society, located on the hotel's rooftop, will offer a dynamic lounge experience with an extensive selection of champagnes and panoramic views of Downtown Dubai. Additionally, Bonbon Café Angelo Musa will introduce an exclusive Parisian pâtisserie experience, featuring an array of viennoiseries, bonbons, and bespoke cakes. Other notable outlets include The Gallery, known for its signature afternoon tea, Veranda, an open-air garden bar, Bitter Honey, a cocktail bar in the hotel lobby, and Txakolina, a secret cigar lounge.
