Kerzner International has planned to launch the One&Only Urban Resorts in Dubai's One Za'abeel two-tower mixed-use development in 2020.

Ithra Dubai, a subsidiary of Investment Corporation of Dubai, is developing One Za'abeel in the city center's Za'abeel district. The One&Only One Za'abeel will share the site with residences, serviced apartments, office spaces, retail space and a sky concourse connecting the two towers. 

The new hotel will be Kerzner’s third One&Only property in Dubai, following the One&Only Mirage and One&Only The Palm. It will also join Kerzner’s portfolio of four properties in the city along with Atlantis The Palm and The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences, which is slated to open in late 2019.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.

Kerzner International announced its new One&Only Nature Resorts, One&Only Urban Resorts and One&Only Private Homes in April 2017 as spin-offs of the original One&Only brand. The first two hotels signed under the new brands were the One&Only Nyungwe House and One&Only Gorilla’s Nest in Rwanda. 

The group later set plans to further expand the One&Only brand in Greece with the One&Only Kéa Island resort in partnership with Dolphin Capital Partners and Dolphin Capital Investors. The 75-villa beachfront resort on the west side of Kéa Island of the Cyclades. The property also has One&Only Private Homes available for purchase. 

The new properties join Kerzner's One&Only development pipeline, which includes the One&Only Portonovi in Montenegro and the One&Only Seef in Bahrain along with the One&Only Mandarina and the One&Only Santa Maria de Xala in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
