Delano, the renowned luxury brand, has exciting plans to expand its presence in the United Arab Emirates. Specifically, they will be opening a new outpost in the vibrant city of Dubai later this year.

Here’s what you need to know.

Delano To Open in Dubai This Year

Delano Dubai will have 251 guest rooms, including 81 suites — some of which will have private pools. Amenities will include 4 dining options, an oceanfront swimming pool, and a pool club.

Ennismore, which operates all Delano properties globally, is keeping details about the hotel scant.

A landing space on the hotel’s website says reservations will “open soon,” but Ennismore hasn’t specified when the property will open for guests.

“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,” said Sharan Pasricha, Founder of Ennismore.

This marks Ennismore’s second property in Dubai, following SLS Dubai and Hyde Hotel Dubai.

About Ennismore

Ennismore (formerly sbe) is an international collection of hotel brands, restaurants, bars, and lounges. They are best known for offering luxury, high-end dining, nightlife, and hospitality services in some of the world’s most sought-after destinations.

You may have stayed at an Ennismore property before and not have known. Its portfolio includes SLS Hotels & Residences, Mondrian, Delano, The Redbury, and Hyde Hotels & Residences.

Ennismore properties participate in the ALL – Accor Live Limitless program, which means you should be able to earn and redeem points at the Delano Dubai when it opens.

Ennismore also has its own loyalty program — Dis-loyalty. It’s unlike traditional loyalty programs in that you won’t earn points or qualifying night credits. However, Dis-loyalty members receive the following benefits for $18 per month:

  • 50% off new hotels within 3 months of opening
  • 20% off of every first-time stay at any of the program’s hotels
  • 10% off every return stay
  • 10% off food and drink at over 150 restaurants
  • 1 free coffee or tea every day of the year at any of the program’s restaurants or bars
Bottom Line:

Ennismore is made up of 3 distinct business units: Lifestyle Collective, Immersive Resorts, and Iconic Venues. Under these umbrellas are 14 brands with over 130 open hotels and resorts, 76 venues, and more than 300 restaurants and bars.

Final Thoughts

While we know little about Delano Dubai, it’s sure to be a luxury hotel in a city best known for its opulence. As we await the hotel’s opening, check out Ennismore’s other hotels in Dubai!
