Aman Group Announces Janu Dubai

Aman Group announces a second forthcoming destination in the heart of Dubai, Janu Dubai, anticipated to open in 2027. The visionary hospitality group recently unveiled plans for Aman Dubai which will be set in a prime location directly on Jumeirah Beach.

This announcement follows the successful launch in March 2024 of Janu’s inaugural property, Janu Tokyo, which made an indelible mark as the city’s newest luxury destination, captivating guests with the energetic spirit of its dining scene and landmark wellness centre, setting a new standard in hospitality.

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. It will offer sweeping views across the skyline towards the Burj Khalifa on one side and garden views on the other.

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.

Pioneering a new direction in luxury hospitality, Janu – derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘soul’ – is a hotel brand designed for a new era of restorative travel, enriching lives through transformative experiences, which celebrate genuine human interaction, playful expression, and social wellness.

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.

Successfully launching Janu’s vision, the first property, Janu Tokyo, opened to great acclaim in Tokyo’s much anticipated ‘Modern Urban Village’, Azabudai Hills, in March 2024, featuring 122 spacious guest rooms, a vibrant dining scene and one of the largest wellness facilities in the city.

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.”
