Just when we all thought the world’s largest indoor theme park was hard to top, Dubai proves us wrong yet again.
Dubai seems to be in a competition with itself to become the capital of world records, man-made firsts, and showy gimmicks—such as the world’s largest indoor ski resort and a nearly opened indoor theme park poised to become the biggest on the planet—to distract visitors from the punishing weather.
Its latest jaw-dropping megaproject is a tropical rainforest in a skyscraper hotel — another world-first for the emirate.
The 7,000-square-meter rainforest will be part of the upcoming Rosemont Hotel and Residences Dubai, one of the properties under Hilton’s luxury independent brand Curio — A Collection by Hilton.
The complex, expecting to welcome its first guests in 2018, consists of two 53-story-high towers including a 448-key hotel and a 280-room serviced apartment tower.
Designed by ZAS Architects Dubai, the $550 million Rosemont Hotel and Residences Dubai will feature nonessentials like an indoor bowling alley, robotic luggage handlers, a trampoline park, and a glass-bottomed sky pool that lights up at night like a starry sky.
