UAE: Lifestyle hospitality company Ennismore, in partnership with investment company Dubai Holding, will launch the Delano Dubai later this year. 

Located on the Bluewaters Dubai island, Ennismore has collaborated with interior design firms Elastic Architects, LaBottega and SA Consultants to transform an existing hotel into a Delano property.

It will offer 251 guest rooms including 84 suites – some with private pool – four F&B venues, and an ocean-front swimming pool.

Sharan Pasricha, founder and co-CEO, and Gaurav Bhushan, co-CEO of Ennismore, said: “When Delano launched in Miami in 1995, it traded traditional, gilded luxury for something far more modern and understated, but equally grand. Delano pioneered the concept of lifestyle hospitality as we know it today, and we are thrilled to be bringing the iconic Delano to the forefront of global hospitality again, with a new home in Dubai – marking a major milestone in the brand’s journey. 

“From its origins in Miami, a bustling social hub, to the new global hub of extraordinary experiences, Dubai, Delano is set to introduce a new level of luxury, discernment and vibrant energy to the city as our debut property in the region. We look forward to sharing more exciting details about Delano Dubai over the coming months,” they added. 

Amit Kaushal, group chief executive officer at Dubai Holding, said: “The launch of Delano Dubai underscores our commitment to set new standards of excellence in luxury hospitality and strengthen Dubai’s position as a leading international tourism hub. Together with the recent opening of Banyan Tree Dubai, we are proud to mark another milestone in the evolution of Bluewaters Dubai as a luxury lifestyle destination. Our collaboration with market leaders like Ennismore and Banyan Group will continue to focus on welcoming new brands to Dubai and further enrich the city’s vibrant hospitality landscape.”

Banyan Tree Dubai at Bluewaters Dubai opened late last year.

In 2024, Ennismore entered into a long-term partnership with Cain International to drive forward the global expansion of the Delano brand and reopen Delano Miami Beach.
