Dubai is not new to exotic tall buildings. In fact it is the home of the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa.
The artificial rain forest project which is run by Royal International was designed by ZAS Architects, with offices in Canada and the United Arab Emirates.
From the simulated images, the Dubai hotel and apartment towers which will cost about £230 million is expected to have a splash pool and trees that spray mist. It is scheduled to be launched in 2018 in Dubai.
Courtesy of the Rosemont Five Star Hotel Manager, Hilton brand Curio, the 75,000-square foot, man-made jungle is on a sort of exhibition prior to the proper establishment of the hotel in Dubai.
Aside the artificial rain forest, the hotel will have these features:
- A 5-storey podium at the base of two 47-storey towers, and filled with exotic plants.
- 450 guest rooms and suites.
- A lobby on the 26th floor.
- An upper-floor/infinity pool that extends over the edge of the building.
- An exquisite dining area/restaurant.
- VIP lounge.
- An aquarium on the ceiling of the hotel.
The much anticipated magnificent hotel will also house a spa, meeting rooms, play area for children, a bowling alley and trampoline park.
As a source of attraction for families, the hotel also has artificial beaches and pools. It is literally said that these invention will automatically become the first rain forest in the Middle East.
Making the structure more interesting is that there will be about 280 private residences as well as other recreational spots in the towers.
The idea of building an artificial rain forest will be in line with already existing artificial islands in Dubai.
Judging from the simulated images, the exhibited project if eventually a reality will be the next biggest tourist attraction in Dubai.
