A 7,000-square-meter tropical rainforest is set to be built inside a high-rise hotel in Dubai, United Arabs Emirates (UAE).
The rainforest has been designed be part of the upcoming Rosemont Hotel and Residences Dubai, one of the properties under Hilton’s luxury independent brand.
The project would consist of two 53-storey high towers which would include a 448-key hotel and a 280-room serviced apartment tower.
DJ Armin, principal architect and managing partner of ZAS Architects Dubai said: “Our client’s concept was to create a very unique destination for the city of Dubai and also to create a project that would be a destination itself, with every possible leisure and entertainment amenity inside the hotel”.
Armin further explained that the project, which is expected to be completed in 2018, will serve as a recreational environment that can be used by the city-dwellers.
“As the site wasn’t a beachfront location, we looked at how we could create a new type of outdoor leisure space in the city, and also fully integrate nature into the guest experience.
“Inside the rainforest, we’ve created a landscape akin to a full-scale tropical environment — complete with adventure trails, a sandless beach, a splash pool, waterfalls, streams and a rainforest café”, he said.
He added that the project also includes a “prehistoric Jurassic-inspired marsh” and guests are to expect “technological features” which “include an advanced sensory rain system that creates a 360-degree experience, simulating the sensation of being surrounded by rainfall without actually getting wet.”
