Several over-the-top, ultra-luxury resorts will open in Dubai.
I haven’t been to Dubai yet, but as a fan of luxury hotels I am eager to join its robust traveler ranks.
Dubai is hardly under the radar. In fact, in 2022 it was the most-viewed destination on TikTok, with 82 billion views, according to the TikTok Travel Index 2022.
In 2023, I think it will only earn more interest as Emirates invests more than $2 billion to enhance its air service there, including revamping aircrafts, serving new menus, and more.
Additionally, the ultra-luxury resort Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab is planned to open in 2023, and comes from the same brand behind the world-famous sailboat-inspired Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. The new hotel will take inspiration from a futuristic superyacht, according to its developer.
The five-star luxury hotel brand One&Only will also open a new property in Dubai with One Za’abeel that will have the world’s longest cantilever building, a panoramic sky concourse that connects two towers floating 100 meters above the ground, as well as celebrity-chef restaurants, a statement swimming pool, and retail and entertainment, according to its website.
The new year will also bring the full opening of Atlantis, The Royal, a 43-story luxury resort spread across six towers with 17 on-site restaurants curated by celebrity and Michelin-starred chefs including three-Michelin-starred Björn Frantzén, and more than 90 swimming pools, including one on the 22nd floor with views of the Palm crescent.
