Janu Dubai to open in 2027

The 150-key Janu Dubai will comprise 150 hotel keys, a limited number of Janu branded and fully serviced residences and a member’s club

Hot on the heels of announcing Aman Dubai, luxury hospitality operator Aman Group has announced a second destination in the heart of Dubai, Janu Dubai, anticipated to open in 2027.

Janu Dubai, located in the business heart of Dubai International Financial District (DIFC), will sit in a key position close to world-class retail, restaurants, entertainment venues, and in close proximity to Downtown Dubai.

A leading Pritzker Prize-winning architecture practice, Herzog & de Meuron has been appointed as the building’s architect, with plans to make the property the first of its kind in the UAE by embracing a connection to nature through expansive outdoor terraces and balconies with abundant planting and gardens. 

Janu Dubai is owned by Alia Developments, an investment vehicle backed by local and international investors. It will be led by H&H Development, a leading real estate developer with a proven track record in the UAE. H&H Development will serve as both a shareholder of the project and the development manager. 

Janu Dubai will comprise approximately 150 hotel keys, as well as a limited number of Janu branded and fully serviced residences and a member’s club. The property will incorporate several distinct dining and bar concepts, as well as dedicated event spaces and an extensive wellness and fitness centre.

Speaking about Janu’s pipeline and his vision for growth, Vlad Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman Group, said: “Following the successful opening of Janu Tokyo, the announcement of Janu Dubai marks my continued commitment to solidifying Janu’s robust pipeline and advancing our strategic vision for the future of luxury hospitality. I am pleased to collaborate with Shahab Lutfi and his team at H&H Development, whose deep market insight will enable us to deliver another exceptional Janu destination for the new generation of travellers seeking connection and exploration.”

The announcement of Janu Dubai emphasises Aman Group’s commitment to the Middle East, with forthcoming properties confirmed in destinations including AlUla, Wadi Safar and Diriyah Gate.
