Helix for a Healthy Environment
According to gizmag, Abu Dhabi’s latest hotel, The Helix, will not only look hella cool, it will also be one of the very first hotels to run entirely on wind and solar ‘GROW’ energy. The hotel’s staggering spiral design is not just for art deco show- it actually serves a function by allowing the hotel to make use of as much solar energy/natural light as possible. Because the hotel is poised right along the Persian Gulf, it will also be able to gather more wind and water energy than an inland structure. The hotel is not all work and no play, however. As you can see from the pictures, because of the design hotel guests can look up and down at any area of the hotel including an awesome glass bottom pool. There’s also a rooftop deck that will provide an amazing view of Abu Dhabi. Aside from that, the cushy hotel provides all the ammenities you’d expect from a five star stay: spa, restaurants, shopping, (did I mention the glass bottom pool??!).
