Aman Dubai is set to open at Jumeirah Beach.

Luxury hospitality brand Aman has announced a stunning new resort opening in Dubai. Aman Dubai is set to be an all-suite property and will occupy a ‘prestigious’ shoreline setting at Jumeirah Beach with a private beach. The property will also feature a limited number of Aman branded residences.

“Responding to the requests from Aman guests for our presence in Dubai has long been part of my growth vision,” said Aman’s chief executive officer, Vlad Doronin. “Securing the optimal site was paramount to ensure the delivery of our unparalleled service and authentic experiences.”

Swanky facilities include an extensive Aman Spa, several dining options and an Aman Club.

Full details including an opening date are yet to be revealed, but the resort promises an experience similar to its other super-luxe properties around the world.

Aman Dubai is set in nine acres of landscaped gardens with unobstructed views of the ocean and Dubai skyline. Kerry Hill Architects have drawn inspiration from the region and features local stone in a palette of desert tones, with a series of gardens and courtyards that spill down to the beach.  

The resort is being developed by project owner, real estate investment company Bright Start, in collaboration with Aman.
