Za’abeel is a mixed-use development overlooking Za’abeel Park close to the Dubai Frame, that will feature residences, commercial offices, hotels and leisure attractions.
Vida Za’abeel will be a two-tower development of 70 and 68 storeys, home to the 220-room Vida Za’abeel hotel and Vida Residences Za’abeel, a collection of serviced apartments in 1, 2 and 3-bedrooms.

“With its focus on convenience, creativity and connectivity, Vida Za’abeel will add to the choice of hotel guests and discerning customers who are seeking a vibrant and social hub were inspiring minds can create and connect.”
