All together the Emirates Pearl Hotel has 365 rooms – from a double room to a luxury suite – that offer comfortable accommodation for every guest.

Characteristic outward appearance

Two semi-circular hotel wings spiral upwards around an elliptical circulation core. All the rooms have balconies which define the building’s characteristic outward appearance with a linear composition of railing elements. Coated glass panes provide sun protection and enable an outstanding view. Metal louvers complement these elements.

The ground floor is a completely transparent volume which contains all public and administrative functions of the hotel. Above it rises a five-storey podium volume, which is separated from the towering hotel levels by a second interstice – the Podium Roof – where bar, terrace, pool and Jacuzzi are situated.
