Rosewood Hotel Terrace Pool – Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates


Completed in 2013 for the Mubadala Development Company, the team of Counsilman-Hunsaker and Handel Architects designed the extensive water amenities for the Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi, which accentuates the elegance and grace of this five-star hotel and residence.

Guests are welcomed by a spectacular rain curtain in the porte cochere, while an outdoor fountain leads guests indoors where rich warm textiles and sleek architectural elements are complemented by a dramatic water wall feature.

Project Amenities

The sophisticated outdoor leisure pool was designed to complement the juxtaposition of land and sea, desert and sky. The flowing environment includes a 430 sq. meter pool, children’s area, spa seating area, and dramatic landscaping with stunning views overlooking the water. Inside, separate fully-tiled spas for both men and women are integrated with tranquil water walls.

Other significant water features within the property incorporate water walls and artistic sculptures in a study of contrasts that achieves the standard for luxury design in Abu Dhabi.
