Rocco Forte Hotel, Abu Dhabi, UAE

A vision of gleaming glass rising high above the city, Rocco Forte Hotels' newest property stands out among the luxury hotels in Abu Dhabi. A striking new landmark in the emirate, the Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi is built from curved glass and its wavy structure - with not a single straight line in sight - is an architectural masterpiece. Up close, the blue and green glass panels create a breathtaking mosaic effect, mirroring the colours of the Arabian Gulf.

Sir Rocco Forte has years of experience running highly individual luxury hotels throughout Europe, earning Rocco Forte Hotels a reputation for exceptional service and design. Opened in 2012, the Rocco Forte Hotel Abu Dhabi brings European sophistication to the city and is focused on offering guests the very best service in the emirate.

Step inside and the interior is unlike any other hotel in Abu Dhabi. Olga Polizzi, who oversees the design of all Rocco Forte Hotels properties, has blended European and Middle Eastern styles to create a look that is sophisticated and modern, yet sumptuous in detail. Bespoke works by local artists adorn the walls; richly patterned fabrics give each of the bedrooms a stylish authenticity; the finest materials sourced from all over the world are used throughout.

Throughout this hotel, Kemps are proud to have supplied over 4km of Coveline (KL-CLN-E010100IP) which has been used for the in-direct lighting in the corridors, reception foyer, retail, restaurants and spa areas. With lamplife in the region of 50,000hrs plus, and energy consumption of 30W per mtr, Cold Cathode was the perfect solution for the complex shapes throughout this stunning hotel.


Installation was supervised locally by Lightex LLC.
