Hilton Hotel Resort

The Al Ain Hilton Hotel is conceived as an oasis in the desert.

The Al Ain Hilton Hotel is conceived as an oasis in the desert. But rather than being traditional, or literal, we have interpreted the theme and are showing the essence of water: and it’s fundamental building blocks: its atomic composition. By reminding guests that H2O, also known as water, is the most precious resource in the desert, we invite any guests of the Al Ain Hilton Hotel to experience a simple care-free existence, which will cleanse the mind, body and soul and allows guests time to focus on what is essential in their lives. As it has done for thousands of years, water sustains life in the harsh environment of the desert. Our proposal is to provide a lush green 3-dimensional landscape growing over and through all aspects of the hotel, the chalets, and the site. Even the roofs and terraces of all buildings have significant areas dedicated to grass and other plants. It is this dimensional landscape that provides the ultimate setting for any guests return to fundamentals.
