The Dubai EDITION makes its debut in the iconic downtown district

EDITION Hotels opens in Dubai’s iconic Downtown district, a stone’s throw from the city’s world-class flagship stores, commercial district and its thriving centers of art, design and culture. The Dubai EDITION is the brand’s latest addition to the Middle East after its successful launch in Abu Dhabi.

Welcoming guests since November 2021, The Dubai EDITION, with its own unique and original identity, embodies its sense of place at the center of a thriving international gateway city, driven by a pioneering spirit and innovation while being rooted in its rich culture. It’s no wonder EDITION got its start in one of the most exciting cities in the world.

The Dubai EDITION heralds a new generation of modern luxury and pays homage to Dubai’s passion for creating something entirely new. The result is an elegant and dynamic urban center that undeniably encapsulates the essence of this inspired city and sets the bar for the luxury of the future. The Dubai EDITION brings a new bespoke boutique experience with the acute attention to detail and finesse that the EDITION brand is known for.

From the outside, The Dubai EDITION stands proudly in the downtown area surrounded by world famous attractions and landmarks. The hotel’s leafy entrance is populated with bold terracotta pots transporting guests from the bustle to an oasis of calm. Clever landscaping continues throughout the hotel in the lobby, outdoor spaces and terraces, shaping intimate spaces with beautifully woven lights throughout the gardens to create a playful dance at night.

As in all EDITION hotels, the lobby is a dynamic and social space that subtly reveals a sense of place and a sense of time. In this soaring public space, the 50-foot-high domed ceiling is reminiscent of Italian architectural structures. You are immediately drawn to the centerpiece, a seamless triple spiral staircase, a truly unique design statement that connects the lobby to other public spaces. Dark woods, neutral tones, soft textures, and warm lighting run through the lobby lounge, with furniture placed in intimate seating groups. This thoughtful and intentional space is tranquil, comfortable and effortless. A grand three-tiered crystal chandelier adds drama and decadence to this modern gathering place to see and be seen.

The cohesive design language flows seamlessly throughout the hotel and continues into the 275 rooms, including 41 suites and a vast Penthouse. This simplicity of design immediately draws attention to intricate details such as the pairing of natural stone and wood grain. The palette is minimal yet warm, with a journey of slightly different hues and colors. Light oak wood and stone accents flow from room to room and evoke a feeling of quiet luxury. The monochromatic color palette and contemporary minimalism give each room a fresh, airy feel and are complemented by the sleek lines of the furniture, textured upholstery and wood-clad walls. Meanwhile, the spacious bathrooms, finished in natural-toned marble, feature oval-shaped bathtubs and personalized Le Labo toiletries with an exclusive EDITION scent. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide abundant light and lead to large glass balconies with spectacular views of the iconic Burj Khalifa. Artwork by Carole Benitah adorns the walls depicting a young girl dancing in the Dubai Fountains.

Accessible from the hall, the ground floor houses Duomo, the theatrical Italian restaurant serving modern interpretations of traditional cuisine. Natural light fills the space through floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the pop of yellow in the velvet furnishings, a design that’s a clear departure from the natural-toned lobby. Abstract digital art is projected onto the ceiling of the dome above, creating an interactive, all-encompassing dining experience from environment to plate. The outdoor terrace is adorned with large potted olive trees and lit by lanterns at night with views of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, nearby.

Tucked away in the hall, Leon is a cozy speakeasy-style bar serving original custom cocktails and flavors from around the world. It’s an exciting juxtaposition to the rest of the hotel with its punchy accents of orange and red against a dark, rich backdrop. Smart lighting further enhances vibrant color blocking throughout the space. It exudes energy and will be a place where visitors and locals alike can enjoy live DJs, network and socialize. Leon perfectly channels EDITION’s philosophy to surprise guests with the unexpected.

First floor, Pretty is a lively venue serving exquisite French cuisine inspired by Mediterranean coastal flavors. Here, wall-to-wall portraits inspired by Parisian haute couture set the scene for an energetic and glamorous space to transition from morning dinner to evening dinner. The restaurant is filled with natural, earthy hues of the bronze finishes, tan leather chairs, and raised bar chairs in olive and gold that line the ‘U’ shaped bar. Rattan and teak chairs are interspersed with olive-green banquettes, while palm trees and tropical plants lend a sense of privacy. Seamless terrazzo flooring is the statement design element throughout the restaurant. On the semi-enclosed terrace inspired by a balcony overlooking the old town, works of art adorn the walls illustrating urban life.

During the day, customers of Thia Sky Lounge can relax enjoying the sun and the breathtaking views of the Burj Khalifa. Large lounge chairs and private cabanas frame the beautifully landscaped pool that sits atop a sundeck with teak wood furniture and terra cotta potted plants. In the evening, Thia Sky Lounge is a cosmopolitan attraction and an idyllic place for aperitifs and light and fresh snacks.

The Dubai EDITION offers modern facilities for events and meetings, including three flexible meeting rooms, an event space ready to host the latest events in the city and a ballroom with pre-function space. The hotel’s large 24-hour gym is bright and airy and fully equipped with Technogym equipment. The hotel will also have an intimate spa with three treatment rooms.

Nestled in the epicenter of downtown, the hotel is located near Dubai’s best neighborhoods and attractions. It is minutes from the bustling Downtown Boulevard, Dubai Mall and Dubai Water Canal, and close to the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera, the soon-to-open Museum of the Future and of the financial district. The hotel is a serene escape from the bustling city life and a vibrant and social destination day and night. The hotel is located in a 23-storey building, with an impressive panoramic view of the Dubai skyline and a breathtaking view of the Burj Khalifa monument and the old town.
