One Za'abeel

Dubai is a city that never shies away from doing things on a grand scale, just think back to the Atlantis The Royal launch weekend, and this most recent property reveal of One Za’abeel once again ticked all the boxes

Dubai, the city that never ceases to amaze, has yet again witnessed a grand opening that has redefined luxury and sophistication. The recent inauguration of One Za’abeel has once again left the world in awe, showcasing the epitome of modern urban living. At Katch International, we love a good hotel launch, and this iconic development, strategically positioned at the entrance to the Dubai International Financial Districts, made sure of that, promising guests an elevated lifestyle experience with its unparalleled 360° views of the city.

One Za’abeel: A Masterpiece in Iconic Design and Innovation

One Za’abeel is more than just a building; it's a symbol of ambition, innovation, and the pioneering spirit that defines Dubai. Designed to seamlessly integrate residences, businesses, and leisure experiences, it captures the imagination of global citizens. The architectural marvel consists of dual skyscrapers intersected by the world’s longest cantilever and a horizontal bridge known as The Link, offering a dynamic and integrated urban stage at the heart of everything.

Star-Studded Grand Opening Weekend

The grand opening weekend of One&Only One Za’abeel was nothing short of spectacular, attracting a whole host of renowned A-listers from film, music, fashion, and sports. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Naomi Campbell, Mark Ronson, and Idris Elba graced the event, turning The Link into a futuristic boulevard style catwalk suspended 100 meters above the ground. The festivities included a dazzling party in the sky, with Jennifer Lopez giving an impromptu performance alongside Mark Ronson that will live long in the memories of the lucky attendees.

The weekend was filled with bespoke dining experiences, exclusive parties, and glamorous events. From intimate welcome drinks at Aelia to a sun-soaked Rosé Pool Brunch at Tapasake, attendees were treated to the finest culinary delights and entertainment. The celebrations continued with live performances by Lebanese pop star Nancy Ajram and culminated with a brunch at StreetXO, featuring a bespoke menu by three-Michelin star chef Dabiz Muñoz.

Record-Breaking 3D Video-Mapping Projections

To commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime event, One&Only One Za’abeel showcased record-breaking 3D video-mapping projections. These projections, now the longest in the world, adorned the glass exterior of the resort and landmark structure, transforming the facade to reflect the futuristic and innovative interior. The breathtaking animation ran every evening throughout the celebratory weekend, lighting up the Dubai skyline and welcoming guests to the city.

Dubai’s History of Groundbreaking Launches

This grand opening of One Za’abeel is not the first time Dubai has witnessed such a spectacular event. Just last year, Atlantis The Royal captivated the world with its unprecedented grand reveal. Crafted by leading designers, architects, and artists, Atlantis The Royal hosted a star-studded lineup, including the iconic Beyoncé, in a three-day extravaganza that left an indelible mark on the city's landscape.

As we eagerly await the public opening of One&Only One Za’abeel next month, it's clear that Dubai continues to push the boundaries of luxury and innovation. The city's skyline, already adorned with architectural marvels, is now graced by the presence of One Za’abeel, adding another gem to the crown of Dubai's iconic landmarks. Whether it's Atlantis The Royal or One Za’abeel, Dubai's grand openings are events that redefine opulence and set new standards for the world to witness.
