Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates popular for extravagant shopping experience, over-the-top architecture, extraordinary event places and theme parks.
A businessman once said, "One of the main characteristics that differentiates Dubai from other commercial centres is its openness to innovation and the freedoms it grants people and institutions to operate."
A lot of the world's superlatives can be seen in this gigantic concrete jungle. The world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa; world's first indoor mountain resort , Ski Dubai; tallest hotel, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel and its recently inaugurated world's largest indoor theme park, IMG Worlds of Adventure. It has clearly established itself as a prominent world-class hub for tourism, finance, trade and leisure.
Despite its success, the city has no time to rest on its laurels. It continuously brings to life a lot of innovations one can imagine. The first in the world is yet to be seen again with the latest megaproject which is a tropical rainforest in a skyscraper hotel.
The 7,000-square-meter rainforest is part of the unique and luxurious Rosemont Hotel and Residences Dubai. It will be operated by Curio Collection, by Hilton. Rosemont's suggestive design will surely transport its guest into a fusion of nature's most relaxing destinations, from a lavish tropical rainforest to fascinating digital underwater paradise. The hotel comprises two 53-story-high towers including a 448-key hotel and a 280-room serviced apartment tower.
DJ Armin, principal architect and managing partner of ZAS Architects Dubai, shared in a CNN interview how they give birth to the idea of the rainforest, "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 Rosemont's rich rainforest, visitors are enclosed by a landscaped tropical oasis, dappled sunlight and to complete the experience, a humid environment similar to a tropical rainforest will be felt inside the vicinity. Guests are welcomed by the splash pool along the sand-less beach, waterfalls, streams and a rainforest café. A prehistoric Jurassic- inspired marsh is set to deliver an extraordinary entertainment for the whole family.
Visitors, tourists, and locals will be amazed by the hotel's high-tech interiors, kinetic light sculptures, advanced sensory rain system and robotic luggage handling. Each room will be managed through a smart phone. A cantilevered, glass-bottomed infinity sky pool will also be the hotel's highlight. Rosemont is expected to welcome its first guests in 2018.
