Sheikh Zayed Road , Dubai
Rosemont Hotel and Residences is a five-star hotel and apartment project being developed by ZAS for Hilton Worldwide’s luxury hotel line Curio in Dubai, UAE. The $300m project will be located in Al Thanyah First on Sheikh Zayed Road and will be the first Curio hotel in Dubai.
The project is a result of an agreement between Hilton Worldwide and Royal International and is scheduled to be completed by 2018. Projects by Curio include hotels that mimic the culture and character of the destination city. The new hotel will feature an artificial beach and a rainforest-like landscape development.
The design for the two-tower Rosemont Hotel and Residences project was selected through an international completion and includes 450-guestrooms and 280 service apartments that will be constructed on approximately 170,000m².
Design details of Rosemont Hotel and Residences project
The towers have been designed to echo the modern and urban feel of the city. A common podium for the two towers will act as a pedestal and open up into the street.
Both towers will extend more than 47 storeys and include a shared five-storey podium and two basement levels.
They will be constructed on 106,000m² of the total construction area that will comprise the hotel rooms, sky lobby, sky pool, restaurants, spa, health club and meeting rooms. A state-of-the-art guest experience will be built more than 45,000m² while another 52,000m² will be occupied by 280 service apartments fitted with their own sky lobby, sky pool and exclusive residential amenities.
Facilities at the Rosemont Hotel and Residences
The podium will house exclusive retail outlets, a sheesha café, and breathtaking entrance and lobbies.
A sky lobby on the 22nd floor can be accessed by visitors via express elevators and will be surrounded by a sky pool, which will feature a grand pool deck and a pool bar.
Restaurants will offer exquisite views of the city from the sky lobby, and a surface-mounted ordering facility will be available at the guest tables to add to the experience. In all, the development will feature three restaurants, a lobby café and two bars.
The sky lobby will be connected to a spa and health club facility. A 7,000m² entertainment complex located on the top floor of the podium will feature a bowling alley, a skydiving simulator, a kids play area, a private luxury cinema and a food court.
The hotel will also feature a nightclub, which will be located on the podium’s first floor. Parking will be provided on the upper levels.
The star attraction of the building will be a 12,000m² artificial beach with a rainforest-like landscape on the top floor of the podium, providing water activities for visitors and hotel guests.
Offering comfort and ease to business travellers, the hotel will include four meeting rooms, two boardrooms and multi-functional space for hosting meetings, conferences and events.
