The Opus by Omniyat has become one of the most sought-after “luxury lifestyle retreat” destinations in the UAE. Its total built up area of two million sq. ft. offers a work, live, stay, eat and play experience, all in one location, thanks to its 90,000 sq. ft. of restaurants and bars inside a 210,000 sq. ft. entertainment zone.
Mahdi Amjad, Founder & Executive Chairman of Omniyat, comments, “The Opus by Omniyat offers a stunning lifestyle experience from the moment you set eyes upon its iconic Zaha Hadid design. It takes you on a journey through its unique hotel, stunning residences, unrivalled office spaces and a world-class selection of cafes and restaurants.”
A name synonymous with progressive design and innovation, the late Dame Zaha Hadid was a British Iraqi architect, artist and designer, recognised as one of the most influential and distinctive architects of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. A winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize and the Nobel Prize for architecture, Hadid acted as both architect and interior designer of The Opus, working on the property’s hotel (her inaugural hotel commission), common areas and serviced residences.
Located within the Burj Khalifa District, this radically designed building stands out in Dubai’s skyline thanks to its magnificent eye-catching design. Comprising several floors of office space, rooms, suites, residences, bars and restaurants, The Opus owes its curves to Hadid’s vision of interconnectedness.
It features twin towers linked in the form of a cube with an eight-storey central void that contrasts dramatically with the mirrored frontage. The building represents “a living, breathing entity, feeding off the sun during the day and Dubai’s glittering night sky after dark.”
The Residences at The Opus feature stylish, flowing interiors that mirror the rest of the building space. There are a total of 96 serviced apartments, from one and two bedrooms to stunning three-bedroom duplex and triplex options. The latter comes with a rooftop terrace garden.
The Residences, managed by the ME hospitality brand, offers its tenants a plethora of first-class services, including the ME Hotel’s “lifestyle concierge,” which delivers à la carte or pre-selected services. The tenants also have full access to the connected hotel facilities – including the world-class ESPA Spa, gym and temperature-controlled swimming pool.
The Opus also has 175 offices, conference and business centre facilities with stunning views of the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Water Canal and the Arabian Gulf.
In a city packed with dining hotspots, The Opus offers an exceptional collection of bars, cafés and restaurants. Central Cosmos Tapas & Bar serves a contemporary spin on traditional Spanish cuisine, while Roka (sister restaurant to Rainer Becker’s Zuma) offers an award-winning take on a traditional Robata grill. The Atrium and gallery space offer a hybrid café and cocktail bar experience with dedicated in-house mixologists. Deseo is a poolside Mexicana restaurant, while The Maine Land Brasserie offers cosy booths for diners.
The Opus by Omniyat is an exceptional development. It showcases the superlatives associated with a Zaha Hadid designed building, while offering a curated collection of premium experiences by Omniyat. The Opus is a true “luxury lifestyle retreat” within a single building in the heart of Dubai.
