The Rosemont Five Star Hotel & Residences is scheduled to open in Dubai in 2018.

Designed by ZAS Architects, the development will consist of two towers 47 stories high, a combined five-story podium and two basement levels housing the facilities. The development area totals 170,000 square meters (1,928,864 square feet).

There will be a 450-key hotel tower housing a skylobby, skypool, restaurants, spa, health club and meeting rooms. There will also be a 280-key serviced apartment tower with a sky lobby, sky pool, entertainment area in the top level of parking podium, retail in the ground floor and back-of-house facility and parking facilities.

A major feature of the property will be a 75,000-square-foot (6,968-square-meter) indoor rainforest, expected to be the world’s first. To be spread across two 47-story towers in Dubai’s Al Thanyah District, the elevated jungle will be contained within a super-sized terrarium, complete with a man-made beach and a splash pool that will use recycled water. The complex will also have an infinity pool with a glass bottom overlooking the gulf, and robotic handlers to transport luggage to guests’ rooms.

The property will be operated by Curio, Hilton’s luxury brand.
