The Regents Emirates Pearl Hotel is a player in the top league of business class hotels – a landmark project for Abu Dhabi. Being situated vis-à-vis the world renowned Emirates Palace together with its spacious and luxury interiors the hotel offers a unique combination of modern design and superior comfort.


View from main entrance of Emirates Palace Hotel by day and by dawn

The Regents Emirates Pearl Hotel is situated on the south west end of ‚the’ Coastal Boulevard called Corniche Road, with its direct opposite, the Emirates Palace Hotel. The tower is placed on a plot of land 170m long and 65m wide, with the south-end facing the bay of Khor al Bateen, with its characteristic island.


View of main entrance and from beach side

The three-storey podium is carried by a plinth. This ground-floor is totally glazed and contains public facilities such as reception, lounge, all-day dining. It forms a groove between the liquid black pre-cast concrete elements which clad the plinth and the streamlined form of the podium, clad in silver-grey fibre-C. A second groove is defined by the podium roof between the foot and the shaft of the skyscraper. It contains a juice pool bar as well as a terrace as well as Jacuzzis.


Elevation west and south (beachside)


Elevation east and north (landside)

To allow the very-very special guest a comfortable arrival or departure, a helipad is provided on the roof of the hotel which is an icon shaped as a pearl.



Schema of program

The elliptical core is enclosed by two hotel wings. They are circular segments that twist around the core as the shaft rises up to 215 m height.


Animation of rotation of tower floors

The twisting in combination with the circular segments is based on the concept „maximation and specification of the view“ in order to coexist with developments in the neighbourhood. Furthermore this creates a dynamic and fascinating three-dimensional appearance. Each hotel room has a balcony with balustrades of which are made of stripes of silver aluminium and glass. These balconies are the defining elements of the facade. Coated stripes of glass enable transparency as well as protection from the sun whereas the metal stripes exclusively function as sun shields – all together they form an important part of the concept for the interior climate.

The finest restaurants selection is offering cuisine for the discerning guests. An exclusive ball room for 1000 guests forms another pearl of the hotel. It can cater for unforgettable events from weddings to company events up to design exhibitions and shows.
The health club containing a spa oasis, sauna worlds and a beauty farm up to a spacious fitness studio and gym complete the range of choice the hotel has to offer.

Also - no views of the Arabian Gulf unless you are staying in a hotel.

Here's a very recent shot of the Pearl construction...it's enveloped by scaffolding.

ABU DHABI // A hotel under construction along the south west end of the Corniche will put a twist on the concept of a room with a view.
With its distinctive 45-degree architectural curl and iconic pearl-shaped top, the landmark tower of the Regent Emirates Pearl Hotel has been designed to ensure each of the 377 rooms and 60 serviced apartments gets a unique outlook. The five-star beachside resort was inspired by the sand, sun and sea and will reflect the environment from which it will rise, says Dennis Lems Architects Associates, the Austrian architecture firm behind the design. We started with the classic hotel concept and added a new twist to it, literally," said Thomas Mayrhofer, the senior project architect for the hotel. "The origin was to transform the classic hotel concept into a new shape and putting the view as the central design premise." Situated opposite Emirates Palace Hotel, the 47-storey building faces the bay of Khor Al Bateen on one side and is due to open to guests at the end of next year.
