About Rose Rayhaan by Rotana

Rose Rayhaan by Rotana is a supertall hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai’s financial district. The original plans were for the tower to reach 380 meters, but the design was later modified to reduce the height of the tower.

The hotel’s form is stylistically varied. The highly embellished façade is composed of two tones of blue and silver mirrored glass with gold ornamentation. A narrow panel of oculiform gold rings stretches up the center of each elevation. Each side of the tower incorporates two convex cylindrical forms that fold into one another. Façade sections flatten towards the top and reach up into an elaborate sculptural peak of intersecting petals, a visual reference to the building’s informal name, “The Rose.” This floral element crowning the tower is topped by a sphere. A spire extending up from the roof is the ultimate pinnacle of the tower.

The hotel also considers the multitude of business travelers who pass through Dubai, and thus features professional event space, conference rooms, and an auditorium. The Tower offers guests a choice of 482 rooms, suites, and penthouses. Marble and glass adorn the lobby on the ground floor. On offer for hotel guests are a fully equipped gymnasium, outdoor temperature-controlled swimming pools for adults and children, Jacuzzi, steam room, and massage rooms. The high-degree of luxury offered reflects the building’s position as a world-class hotel in an international city.
