Dubai Water Canal


2021 estimated




The Canal Lifestyle Beach Hotel is a five star hotel including 203 keys and 51 serviced apartments on the peninsula of the recently completed Dubai Water Canal; designed by International Architects.

Designed as the crown of the Dubai Water Canal district, the tower, podium, and access points have been carefully designed to maximize the program and views on the compact site; the faceted podium soars upward into six branches that disperse the overall mass of the building. Each unique form reflects light, pattern and color of surrounding park and water. The tower’s six branches culminate at different elevations creating a slender proportion. The bundle of volumes flares outwards towards the ground, creating the podium to the northeast. The composition creates generous podium floors that include the amenity programs, with unobstructed views towards the sea as well as the iconic downtown Dubai skyline. The building entrance level is elevated via a vehicular ramp along southern edge of the site.

At the plaza level (F01) the drop-off and entrances for residential and hotel as well as the main amenity programs such as the Meeting Rooms, Living Room/Lounge, and Cigar Bar along the southeast of the tower. Retail is prominently placed to the north with direct visibility upon entrance. Above the retail, at the upper level, is the Specialty Restaurant with an outdoor terrace, spa with indoor swimming pool, all day dining and outdoor swimming pool deck. Currently in design, estimated opening early 2021.
