Ennismore to bring Delano brand to Dubai


Hospitality company Ennismore is bringing its Delano brand to the UAE for the first time, with Delano Dubai to open later this year at Bluewaters Dubai.

Majority owned by Accor, Ennismore partnered with Dubai Holding to introduce the luxury lifestyle experience to Dubai.

Delano Dubai will feature 251 guestrooms, including 84 suites, some with private pools, and four distinctive food and beverage concepts, including a collaboration with Paris Society for a unique restaurant and pool club, a patisserie, a Levantine-inspired destination restaurant, a modern Italian and a contemporary reimagining of Delano’s renowned Rose Bar.


“When Delano launched in Miami in 1995, it traded traditional, gilded luxury for something far more modern and understated, but equally grand,” said Sharan Pasricha and Gaurav Bhushan, Co-CEOs of Ennismor.

“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.”

Amit Kaushal, Group CEO of Dubai Holding, said the launch of Delano Dubai will 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,” he said.
