Rosewood Hotel

ABU DHABI, UAE

Rosewood Abu Dhabi opened its doors in May 2013, marking the debut of the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts concept in the United Arab Emirates. The combination of the glistening Arabian Gulf, the cloudless skies overhead, and the vast desert surrounding Abu Dhabi city was the inspiration behind the tower designed by Handel Architects. The dramatic 34-storey structure is covered in reflective glass chosen for its daytime shimmer and nighttime luminescence, while its curvilinear architecture expresses the fast-paced restless movement of this vibrant city.

Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s dramatic interior was designed by award-winning firm BBG-BBGM. PRECIOSA Lighting illuminated the lobby with circular lighting fixtures with hand-blown crystal elements decorated with bubbles and mica. More original pieces can be found in the Hidden Bar, La Cava, and the Sambusek restaurant.
