Rainforest in Dubai – The latest architectural wonder slated for construction in Dubai: a rainforest inside a skyscraper hotel.
Tropical playground – Sprawling across 7,000 square meters, the outdoor rainforest will feature adventure trails, a sand-less beach, a splash pool, waterfalls, streams, a rainforest cafe and an artificial rain room (pictured).
Advanced technology – "We've used technology to transform a typical hotel stay into an immersive experience," says DJ Armin, principal architect and managing partner of ZAS Architects Dubai.
Arriving in style – Even arriving at the hotel will be pretty spectacular. The drop-off area will be lit by animated projections inspired by the natural world.
Skylobby – Check-in is on the 25th floor of the building, where there'll be a restaurant, cafe and pool.
Skypool – Both buildings feature a glass-bottomed, infinity pool -- named the Skypool -- with views overlooking the Gulf.
Business location – The facade of the hotel tower's (pictured right) is inspired by a flowing river, and will feature lighting animations. The serviced apartment tower (left) is designed to resemble a shell and a pearl.
