Dubai to add hotel with tropical rainforest and artificial beach in the sky – in pictures
24 July, 2016
Dubai is set to add a hotel complete with an artificial beach and rainforest within the two-tower property. Located in the Tecom, or Barsha Heights, area off Sheikh Zayed Road and owned by the Saudi Arabia-based Royal International, the AED1.1 billion Rosemont Hotel and Residences is expected to open in 2018 and is currently under construction. It will also feature an adventure play area for children, a bowling alley and a trampoline park. The extravagant features will be developed inside a five-storey podium that will serve as a pedestal between the hotel’s two towers – each 53 storeys high. The hotel will be spread over 13,000 square metres, and guests can check in at the 26th-floor sky lobby.
