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.
