Dubai is a shrinking violet, said nobody (ever). Since its first luxury hotel, the destination has always been considered a leader in high-end hospitality – challenging conventional approaches and defying boundaries in architecture and design to offer something different. OMNIYAT, the developer behind some of the world’s most progressive buildings, including four developments in Dubai, including The Opus that shelters ME Dubai, has been at the forefront of this vision.
Its latest architectural masterpiece is located at the apex of Palm Jumeirah’s crescent. ORLA, Dorchester Collection, Dubai, which first entered our radar in 2020, has been designed by Foster + Partners.
The luxury property enjoys a privileged position situated on a 29,000 square-metre beachfront plot, with uninterrupted 270-degree views stretching from Dubai’s sky-scraping skyline to the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. ORLA, Dorchester Collection, Dubai features 86 exclusive two- to four-bedroom residences, three magnificent sky palaces and one of the largest mansions on Palm Jumeirah, boasting exceptional elegance and refinement. Each residence is adorned with oversized terraces and double-height ceilings (up to 6 metres) and decked with European appliances.
“Our development philosophy is to create iconic, best-in-class projects through collaborations with industry luminaries,” said Mahdi Amjad, founder and executive chairman of OMNIYAT, said. “ORLA, Dorchester Collection, Dubai, is a signature property like no other that represents the epitome of style and will set the new standards for uber-luxury real estate.”
Christopher Cowdray, CEO of Dorchester Collection, added: “We are delighted to be deepening our partnership with OMNIYAT through more residential projects. ORLA, our fourth project with OMNIYAT, will reimagine the property sector both in the Middle East and globally. It will be an iconic landmark with Dorchester Collection’s renowned hospitality offering.”
ORLA, Dorchester Collection, Dubai, features world-class amenities, including a private, resident-only 300 square-metre beach club; a large infinity, temperature-controlled outdoor pool; a private cinema; a state-of-the-art fitness centre; a business centre with two meeting rooms, a boardroom and a multi-functional events space; and library and cigar lounges; among others.
