The palm tree theme also plays out in the rooms themselves, which are all-white, with rich hardwood floors, palm tree-lined terraces, and palm shapes cut into the wall, meaning every time you look out the window, your view is framed by palm fronds.
In addition to the 300 palm trees, over 30 different species of plants, sourced from five continents, are interspersed throughout the hotel. On top of the two towers is a spectacular restaurant and rooftop terrace with views across the entire city (and, we're guessing, a few more palm trees). On the menu? Palm stew, with a salad of palm fronds, and palm dates for dessert.
Rates start at EUR 165 ($223), which is about the same as the other (less jungly) Renaissance.
