1001 Hotel, Dubai

Hotel, leisure and business in Dubai

Far away from the busy surroundings lies a place of beauty and leisure: a palm oasis situated in the Arabian desert. On this fantasy island, the fairy tales of Arabian nights revive in the The Emirates 1001 Hotel.

The Emirates 1001 Hotel is a landmark for travellers with its 1001 hotel rooms, leisure and conference centre. The hotel can be reached by underground lightrail, zeppelin or camelbackride.

The tower is a symbol for Dubai and the Emirates as a main tourist and business destination. With its height (525m), the tower is able to compete with the world's tallest buildings. The tower counts 77 circular floor plans (213.500 sqm) held together by an external tube structure of twelve sculptural posts connected by circular bracings. The tube structure is tightened to the ground by a web of steel cables, which form a hemisphere of stars during the night, creating a romantic environment.

The tower is equipped with a double skin glass facade with integrated LED-lights, lighting up during the night. The skin not only creates different spheres, but also provides protection against the sunlight and against glancing in. Each of the 1001 hotel rooms is decorated in a different fairytale theme. Walls, furniture and services are dressed in fairytale style. The hotel rooms are located around three different voids, designed with Arabian motives. These voids twist on every floor, giving the interior of the hotel a spectacular look.
