Dorchester Collection’s has launched The Lana, Dubai, its first hotel in the Middle East. The new property is also the first step in curating a new phase for the Downtown Dubai neighbourhood.
The Lana boasts 225 rooms and suites (each with an outdoor terrace and floor-to-ceiling glass windows) as well as eight new dining concepts – it will also be home to the first Dior Spa in the UAE, set to open in April 2024.

The hotel is located on the Marasi Bay marina, overlooking Burj Khalifa, and is a 15-minute walk from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, and a 20-minute drive from Dubai International Airport.
Commenting on the opening, Christopher Cowdray, president of Dorchester Collection, said: “As Dorchester Collection welcomes its first guests in the Middle East, we are entering a new era in our company history. The Lana is one of the year’s most anticipated hotel openings, and we are certain it will be celebrated for its remarkable design, superb location in one of the world’s most vibrant cities and a dining scene that will undoubtedly attract much local and international attention.”
