Dubai is one of the most extravagant destinations in the world, and the emirate will continue to cement its reputation with the opening of a hotel that has – wait for it – its very own rainforest.
The Rosemont Hotel and Residences is due to open this year and will contain no less than 2 million square feet of hotel, residential and leisure space, as well as an artificial beach and a glass-bottomed pool suspended above the city’s streets.
Consisting of two 47-story towers, the project was designed by ZAS architects. One of the towers will contain the hotel, whereas the other will contain some 280 residential properties. All of the entertainment facilities, including the 75,000-square-foot rainforest, will be located in the podium at the base of the two towers. Take a look at this $550 million stunner of a development:
On arrival, guests will be greeted by giant, dynamic 3D projections to make them feel as if they're in the middle of a rainforest or a huge aquarium.
