The Residences Dorchester Collection Dubai - Timeless Luxury

Written by Bethan Hurst-Haynes

London’s most renowned and highly reputed hotel, The Dorchester, is bringing its incredible lifestyle offering and unparalleled levels of service to Dubai. Presenting The Residences Dorchester Collection, an extremely high-profile project set in the sought-after Burj Khalifa District and directly alongside the gorgeous Dubai Water Canal. The Residences Dorchester Collection is defined by exclusivity with only 39 residences, including 6 penthouses, featuring sophisticated modern interiors by Parisian design studio Gilles & Boissier. Fully managed by The Dorchester Collection, this is undoubtedly the most prestigious residential project in Dubai.

An Esteemed History

The Dorchester first opened its doors back in 1931 in London’s affluent Mayfair district. However, the hotel’s history is intricately tied to Dorchester House, which was constructed on that same spot in 1792 by the Earl of Dorchester and it is from there that the hotel derives its name. Members of several Royal families, heads of state and international celebrities have been among the regular guests of The Dorchester over the decades. Today, The Dorchester name is synonymous with luxury and exclusivity and it is considered to be one of London’s very best hotels. It has expanded its global footprint with The Dorchester Collection, which includes 9 properties across the world. This is their 10th project and the very first in the Middle East, making it something truly special. 

The striking building was designed by renowned architect firm Foster & Partners who were “inspired by the fluidity and beauty” of Marasi waterfront and this is evidenced in the flowing, graceful curves of the building’s two towers which blend together seamlessly, whilst maintaining their separate forms and functions. In addition to the plethora of incredible amenities inside, including a rooftop infinity pool and residents-only sky garden, there are also 20 private berths outside with direct resident access.

The Residences

As you would expect from such a luxury brand, all of the residences will be generously sized and finished with the utmost care. The crowning jewel is undoubtedly the triplex penthouse, with 5 bedrooms set over 17,700 sq ft. Oak flooring is featured in all of the principal rooms and the bathrooms are finished in marble. The penthouse starts on the 30th floor, where you will find an immense double living room and an open show kitchen with branded Italian design and professional-grade appliances from Gaggenau and Sub Zero, leading to a large terrace with a private pool. The terrace wraps around the floor, making it accessible from the formal dining room and en-suite guest bedroom. A service kitchen connects to the main kitchen, and a maid’s room completes this level. A spiral staircase leads to the next floor, with 3 en-suite bedrooms and a study / home office. The showstopper of the penthouse is the upper floor, which houses the main master suite featuring his and hers dressing rooms and a master bath with Jacuzzi, plus a family room and a sizeable private terrace that enjoys panoramic views over the Dubai Canal and the skyline of Downtown Dubai.

The stunning residences will sit alongside a highly anticipated hotel, which is sure to take the legacy of The Dorchester to the next level. Guests should expect beautifully designed and well-proportioned rooms and suites as well as incredible amenities to elevate your experience and create a lasting impression. Dining options will be diverse, showcasing the very best of both local and global cuisine. Given that ‘discreet’ and ‘exclusive’ are by-words of The Dorchester, it’s no surprise that specifics have not yet been released but think along the lines of Alain Ducasse’s offerings at The Dorchester (London) and Le Meurice (Paris), or the iconic Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills - expect excellence in every aspect.

The Burj Khalifa District, sitting just outside the heart of Downtown Dubai, is one of the city’s most dynamic lifestyle destinations. A short walk will take you to the Dubai Canal and its beautiful promenade or over to Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, the Downtown thoroughfare that is known as a gastronomic haven. Stroll just a bit further and you will find yourself on the periphery of the beautiful Burj Lake, home of the Dubai Fountains. Surrounding its clear blue waters are the stunning Burj Khalifa, the immense Dubai Mall and the majestic Dubai Opera. This is the perfect setting for a project such as The Dorchester Collection, offering you the city’s best lifestyle options both within and just outside your home.

The project is currently 60% complete, with handover expected at the end of 2022. Units range from 4,907 to 16,590 sq ft and prices start at AED 17.7m with the most expensive unit listed at AED 56.6m - payment plans are available.
