SIRO One Za’abeel: Inside Dubai’s first fitness and recovery hotel

The hotel is anchored around five bio-hacking pillars: fitness, recovery, nutrition, mindfulness and sleep.

If you love to start (and end) the day with a workout, sprint over to SIRO One Za’abeel. Set to open this February, the new offering aims to break the hospitality mould and create an immersive lifestyle and fitness hotel.

SIRO’s inaugural hotel covers floors 30 to 36 of Dubai’s new One Za’abeel development. The brand aims to fill a gap in the market and foster a community where like-minded individuals come together to exchange, learn, and improve their lifestyles. So, if you’re the kind of person who feels embarrassed about going to the gym, don’t sweat it. SIRO One Za’abeel will create a supportive, aspirational environment, so that guests can unlock their true potential – think of it as a retreat with a difference.

At SIRO One Za’abeel, it’s not just about getting physically fit but looking after your overall well-being. This experience is designed to seamlessly integrate cutting-edge technologies, pioneering fitness and recovery protocols, and an all-encompassing approach to well-being. 

Rooms and suites

Each of SIRO One Za’abeel’s 132 room and suites provide a haven of well-being, fully soundproof and equipped with amenities, a dedicated stretching bar, an in-room refuel bar with healthy bites, personalised modular dining, and access to virtual classes on the 2.5m projected television. The journey begins with a body analysis composition assessment, leading to bespoke fitness and recovery programs tailored to each guest’s individual needs.

Danish sleep consultant Ana West has consulted on the design of all rooms, which features everything from a pillow menu with 11 options to a temperature-controlled memory foam mattress. A zero-gravity chair will help to decompress the spine while taking in the skyline views that stretch from Burj Khalifa to Dubai Frame. Recovery cabinets are home to resistance bands, yoga mats and Epsom salts, while the in-room dining menu displays calorie counts and macronutrients. Natural bathroom products are provided by UK skincare brand Proverb, while the eco-conscious lounge robes feel more like sweatpants than flannel. 

The six Fitness Suites and six Recovery Suites provide advanced in-room amenities, including personal gyms, massage beds and luxurious bathtubs overlooking the city. Every suite booking also includes two 30-minute in-room treatments to elevate your stay.

Fitness and recovery facilities

The two-floor Fitness and Recovery Lab spans 2,000 sqm on the 30th and 31st floors of the sky-high hotel. Guests can check in at the fitness lab with a refuel bar serving protein balls and smoothies. The space also includes The Collective, a community space for seminars and wellness talks, as well as co-working. Guests can also use the fully integrated SIRO app for digital check-in and access to the accommodations.

SIRO’s impressive fitness and recovery facilities include dedicated pilates, spin, and yoga studios. The 900 sqm gym has been designed with Olympic athletes who have had a hand in everything from selecting the mirrors to the placement of water dispensers. Along with 22 pieces of state-of-the-art cardio equipment, the hotel features an expansive HIIT area offering everything you could possibly need in one place.

The Recovery Lab offers specialised treatments such as compression therapy, cryotherapy, dry needling, IV therapy and more. Elsewhere, the SIRO Wellness Pod has been designed to reduce stress, enhance relaxation and encourage self-reflection, bringing guests to a state of meditation and mindfulness.

Venturing to the hydrotherapy facilities, guests can expect thermal chairs, a cooling plunge pool and both a classic hot coal sauna and an infrared sauna. The relaxation area is filled with sights, scents, massage chairs, and a wall of Himalayan salt that is good for your respiratory system.

Fitness in Dubai

The hotel is raising the bar when it comes to wellness and is home to the UAE’s longest infinity pool. The Tapasake pool stretches 120 metres long and boasts Insta-worthy views of the city’s skyline, defying gravity as the world’s longest cantilever. It is open for the sole use of SIRO guests, allowing them to swim sky-high laps in seclusion. Our visit coincided with that of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is known to be a fitness fanatic.

SIRO sporting ambassadors include British Somali boxer and Olympic trailblazer Ramla Ali, GB Olympic gold medallist swimmer Adam Peaty and AC Milan. Together, they work with the hotel’s in-house team to develop SIRO programmes and unmatched wellness services, including Functional Fitness by AC Milan, Boxing by Ramla Ali, and Core by Adam Peaty.
