Guests enter the hotel through a doorway with a floor of Orgonite tile, a glass inspired by giant plants, reflecting the golden sun on the horizon. The reception is surrounded by a five-story hall reminiscent of desert castles and fortresses dating back years. The golden stilts, made up of boxes framed throughout the place, sparkle various stages of Dubai’s contemporary construction, a common sight in the ever-changing city of Dubai, as well as carpets depicting the waters around the island, reflecting both construction and clouds. The large entrance is a high visual vector that represents a W-shaped sound wave.

The W Lounge is a theater that is worth seeing and reflects the city’s love of luxury through several engineering installations that mimic the rough and natural shape of gold. A traditional fire-lighting stove is set in the middle of the reception hall to illustrate the importance of the fireplace that the Bedouin tribes used to gather around as they roamed the desert years ago. Between the W reception hall and the adjacent VIP lounge, a quiet 13.5-meter-long sofa-bed represents a desert mountain range which looks like old skyscrapers.
