VELA – Latin for sail – has been masterfully crafted to combine the dynamism of the city with the calm of the waterfront.
DUBAI, UAE – OMNIYAT, the visionary developer, has unveiled VELA by OMNIYAT managed by Dorchester Collection (VELA), its latest luxury masterpiece in Marasi Marina. The launch builds on the success of The Lana, the neighboring distinctive hotel and residential offering from OMNIYAT operated by Dorchester Collection.
VELA – Latin for sail – has been masterfully crafted to combine the dynamism of the city with the calm of the waterfront. Located in Burj Khalifa district, VELA will comprise 38 residences that reflect OMNIYAT’s unique philosophy of exclusivity as if it were a rare work of art.
These stunning renders will translate into an architectural masterpiece through the artistic designs of Foster + Partners and curated interiors of Gilles & Boissier – elevated by unmatched, hospitality services from the legendary Dorchester Collection.
The serene structure will rise over 150-metres tall, with over 270,000 sq. feet spread across 30 floors of exquisitely curated, immersive living space.
Once brought to life, VELA will embody the fluidity and beauty of Marasi Bay. OMNIYAT’s signature curves, wraparound pools, and glass façades perfectly mirror the natural, rippling motion of the waves to inspire seamless indoor-outdoor living. Layers of water features draw the marina up to the majestic heights of VELA, allowing the property to harmoniously respond to its environment.
Unparalleled artisanship, exquisite finishes, and in-built technology will be at the heart of VELA. Whether indoors or outdoors, every element delivers a singular experience of premium living.
Floor to ceiling windows flood the interiors with light by day, whilst capturing the glittering cityscape of Downtown Dubai by night. Double height spaces ensure panoramic vistas of sky and water in every direction.
This resounding sense of openness is brought home by Gilles & Boissier’s intuitive elegance, hand-selected furnishings, and bespoke materials and sculptures. Distinctive L-shaped corner pools, unseen elsewhere in Dubai, frame select residences with a ribbon of serenity.
VELA will be underpinned by leisure and refinement throughout, offering an infinity-edge lap pool, triple-height gym, spa suite and salon, cinema room, valet, and more tailored services dedicated to residents.
VELA residents will gain exclusive access to the Dorchester Collection’s world-class amenities at The Lana, with a golf-buggy service to transport guests along the promenade, as well as the luxurious beach club, One at Palm Jumeirah by OMNIYAT.
With construction set to begin in summer 2023, VELA exists in the imagination of Dubai, an ode to the creative possibilities of the world’s most dynamic city.
