The future complex Rosemont Hotel & Residences (5 stars) will consist of twin towers of 47 floors that will be united on their base by a rainforest, which will be arranged on over 5 floors and an area of 7,000 square feet. Besides the rainforest, the hotel will have an artificial beach and waterfalls, a wave pool, a huge aquarium and trees that will refresh the air without creating humidity, Business Insider reports.
More, the hotel will have a pool with glasslike foundation that will be built on the 25th floor, suspended above the streets of Dubai and robotic personnel to take over customers’ baggage.
Located near Jumeirah Palm artificial island, Rosemont Hotel will be completed in 2018 on an area of 13,000 square meters, after an investment of 265 million euros, according to the local business newspaper The National.Guests and residents can use the on-site bowling alley, trampoline park, or laser tag arena. The hotel will be operated by Hilton Worldwide under its Curio brand.
Architect Preetam Panwar told Gulf News that the world’s first indoor rainforest will give guests a 360-degree experience, starting with a Rain Room that “simulates the sensation of being surrounded by rainfall without actually getting wet.” Panwar added that “you’ll see rain, but as you walk through it you won’t get wet because it has sensors on top and it stops water flowing in a two-meter radius around the person”.
A rainforest requires something that is hard to come by in the desert, though: water. To make sure the jungle stays suitably humid, the hotel will use recycled water collected from condensation, according to Forbes. “The intent is to create an environment that is usable year-round,” Panwar told Gulf News. “It’s promoting more outdoor usage even in the harsh climate here all summer.”
