The Grand Opening of the Opus Hotel in Dubai | LUNO

With travel slowly coming back, people who have been stuck indoors for a couple months are thinking about where to go for vacation. As countries open back up, allowing outsiders to come in without a 14-day quarantine, more people will have the urge to travel. Well wherever in the world you are, if you’re allowed to visit Dubai you might want to stay at the Opus Studio, the city’s newest hotel. Opus Studio, which is part of Meliá Hotels International, and it opened in March 2020.

 

This hotel in the fashionable design/shopping Burj Khalifa district, was designed by the late architect,  Zaha Hadid. It is the only hotel where she designed the architecture and the interior design. Of the building, the firm which still carries her name, describes the architecture of the hotel as a “balance between solid and void, opaque and transparent, interior and exterior.”

 

The building is in the form of a glass cube with an irregular void at the center, with an atrium at the ground floor and 3-level bridge at the top. It’s a very fluid design, with lots of curves. Special glass with UV coating keep the desert sunlight from making the interiors too hot.

 

Most of the furniture in the hotel was designed by Zaha Hadid. The 19  two-and-three-bedroom suites have a work-play functionality. There are 74 other regular rooms fitted with Bose sound system and the most futuristic furniture that you’ve ever seen. The hotel also includes restaurants, bars, and office space meeting rooms. And then there is a gym with the highest caliber of equipment that you’ll find on the market called the Technogym’s Biocircuit where you can input your biometrics and get a personalized workout programmed for you. You can go to their website to see how they are operating during the pandemic. As most hotels that have re-opened are doing, they have enhanced the cleaning and hygiene methods that they use. Bon Voyage!

When the world changes around you,
