Company Description

Delano Dubai

Ennismore, the fastest-growing lifestyle and leisure hospitality company, is bringing the iconic Delano brand to the UAE for the first time. When Delano South Beach arrived on the Miami scene in 1995, it introduced an entirely fresh take on 5-star luxury and marked the inception of lifestyle hospitality. Delano was celebrated for its blend of timeless elegance, modern design, and vibrant energy; it became the social hub, bringing together the who’s who of the fashion and entertainment world. Guided by the same principles that propelled the original Delano to icon status, Delano Dubai will usher in a new era of sophisticated style and elevated service to the UAE.

Located on the pristine shores of Bluewaters Island, the Delano Dubai resort will boast an array of luxury rooms and suites, four exceptional culinary and mixology experiences, an ocean front swimming pool and a wellness studio.
