World – Tallest hotel now in Dubai

A leading hotel management company has inaugurated the city’s latest landmark, which is certified as the tallest hotel in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records.

The tower, Rose Rayhaan by Rotana, is a soaring 72 floor tower structure, 333 metres high and offers 482 rooms.

The latest launch came just two days after the much-awaited opening of Burj Dubai, renamed as Burj Khalifa — the world’s tallest tower that stretches over 800 metres in height.

“Rose Rayhaan is not only the tallest hotel in the world but also the UAE flagship for Rotana’s alcohol-free brand Rayhaan Hotels & Resorts, which will assist Rotana to position its brand internationally and will certainly maintain Dubai’s positioning amongst other tourism destinations worldwide,” Omer Z Kaddouri, Senior Vice President UAE Operations for Rotana said after the launch.

The tower, whose construction began in 2004, was designed by Khatib and Alami architectural group, and the developers Bonyan International Investment Group.

Rotana will be operating 11 hotels in Dubai, with two more scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2010.

“Rotana currently operates 1,344 rooms just on Sheikh Zayed Road and operates more hotels in Dubai than any other single operator,” Kaddouri said.
