Middle Eastern hotel company Rotana has unveiled plans for the world’s tallest hotel in Dubai.

Set to open in the New Year, the 72-storey Rose Rotana Hotel will offer 480 rooms, suites and penthouses.

The hotel will be one of four new developments the company has planned for Dubai in the next year and will feature a range of meeting rooms, business facilities and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Rotana currently manages 25 properties throughout the Middle East, with plans to double the size of its portfolio with a further 35 projects.
