Rosemont Hotel & Residences is an AED 2.02 billion twin tower development on Sheikh Zayed Road designed by ZAS Architects.
Developed by Rosemont, the project measures over two million square feet.
One of the 53-storey towers will house a 448-room hotel, the first Curio - A Collection by Hilton in the UAE, and the other tower will contain 280 five-star serviced apartments.
The hotel building has been conceptualized as a flowing river, while moving lights will shine on the serviced apartment tower in a pattern inspired by atomic, orbital rings.
One of the project’s core amenities will be a massive 75,000 sq ft outdoor rainforest featuring lush vegetation and advanced sensory rain systems which will create a 360-degree experience, ‘offering the sensation of being surrounded by rainfall without actually getting wet’.
Residents and visitors will be surrounded by a landscaped tropical oasis, with dappled sunlight and a tropical mist that will be lightly sprayed through the trees. There will be a splash pool along the sand-less beach, adventure trails, play zones, waterfalls, streams and a prehistoric Jurassic-inspired marsh.
The hotel lobby will have a 30ft, zero-edge skypool with a partial glass bottom that will be star-lit from below, mimicking the night sky.
Work started on site in 2015 and all the funds are said to be in place to complete the project in 2018.
