Dubai Hotel Builds Rainforest to Step Up its Amenity Game

Just when you think Dubai couldn’t be any more outrageous, along comes a hotel with an artificial rainforest.

The city is known for its artificial ski hills, fake islands and over-the-top everything – but this hotel takes “amenities” to a whole different level.

Set to open in 2018, the Hilton-run Rosemont Hotel and Residences will be a hotel like no other.

From robotic luggage handlers to constructed natural landscapes, pretty much everything about the hotel is artificial.

Contained in over 2 million square feet of hotel, residential and leisure space, you’ll find a glass-bottom pool suspended over the streets below, an artificial beach, and a rainforest.

Designed by ZAS Architects, the $550 million project will feature a 47-storey tower and a twin tower of the same height that includes 280 residential properties. The podium base of the towers will house all of the entertainment facilities.

Upon arrival, guests will be greeted by intricate 3D projections of ocean life and rainforest at the hotel’s drop-off point.

The hotel will also boast an on-site bowling alley, trampoline park, and laser tag arena.

One of the most stunning features of the property is a glass-bottom infinity “Skypool” on the 25th floor, which features breathtaking 360-degree views of the city’s skyline. Naturally, the hotel will also feature a top-notch health club, a luxury spa, and a fine dining restaurant.

The main attraction of the hotel, however, is a 75,000-square-foot waterfall, stream and pool-filled jungle.

It’s complete with a sensory rain system that mimics a rainforest climate. It also features a sand-free beach, a “prehistoric” marsh, and a café.

Of course, you could also check out an actual rainforest and beaches for the price of a few nights at the hotel.
