Clinique La Prairie has opened its newest Longevity Hub at One&Only One Za’abeel in Dubai.

Like the brand’s other Hubs in Doha, Madrid, Bangkok and Taipei, the Longevity Hub offers a blend of health science, personalised wellness solutions and aesthetics.

It is designed to optimise health and dedicated to promoting lasting vitality.

As well as 35 staff, 12 of whom are wellbeing practitioners, the Longevity Hub will employ five movement specialists. Nine medical practitioners will include a dermatologist, GP, physiotherapist and longevity coach.

This marks the Swiss brand’s second hub in the UAE; the first opened in Doha in 2022.

“This cutting-edge urban centre will delivers progressive wellness programmes focused on our three interconnected pillars: longevity, wellbeing and aesthetics.”

A step above conventional health assessments

“The Longevity Index lies at the heart of the Longevity Hub Dubai,” said general manager Paulina Mercader. “This revolutionary three-step assessment, meticulously crafted by Clinique La Prairie Montreux, utilises cutting-edge AI technology and wellbeing algorithms derived from more than 93 years of research.

Guests in the Longevity Index lounge will undergo analysis of several aspects of internal and external health. This will be used to provides an expert-led profile which informs the personalisation of all therapies.

Supplier focus:



Barr+Wray was initially contracted for the hydraulic designs of the 120m long infinity edge Link-Bridge Pool, as well as various other pools and water features around the buildings. The team carried out the construction management of these works, providing the reviews and approvals of the contractors appointed.

“We are most proud of the long infinity pool located on top of a link bridge between two towers, it’s quite spectacular,” explains Derek Barton, managing director, Barr+Wray.  “We are involved in many pool design contracts, however this is quite special.”

The team was then awarded the supply and installation of the spa for One&Only, which is spread over three floors in one tower. This project included hydro jet room facilities, phytotherapy beds, automated hydrotherapy tubs, four scrub rooms with heated massage table and shower.


It also features saunas and steam rooms in the male and female changing rooms and separate hammam facilities for men and women and also herbal saunas and steam rooms separated by gender. “One Za’abeel, another landmark project for Dubai and the UAE, for Barr+Wray it’s just a great project to be a part of,” says Barton.
