Rose Rayhaan by Rotana, Dubai Is set to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary
With a 2nd World Record on 30th January, 2012
Dubai UAE, January 2012 - Rose Rayhaan by Rotana Dubai, the world’s tallest hotel as declared in the Guinness Book of World Records intensifies its second anniversary celebration with a strong bid for a second world record this January.
In celebration of the hotel’s second anniversary, the quest for a second world record is at the most suitable timing as renowned Polish trial cyclist Krystian Herba attempts to make a new world record for Stair Climbing by Bycicle. Herba is a 30 year old sportsman practising on trial bikes for the past 18 years. He was a member of the Polish national team and three years ago, his passion in conquering the tallest buildings in the world on his bike has materialized having successfully climbed the highest structures in Poland, Germany, Austria and Spain. This January, he has accepted the chellenge to conquer Dubai aiming to beat the current world record of 2008 steps done in China back in 2007.
Krystian’s goal is to climb 2,040 steps of the Rose Rayhaan by Rotana staircase targetting to finish within one hour and thirty minutes. Commenting on this great venture, he remarked: "I've always dreamed about conquering buildings in Dubai and I am very happy that my trial to break a Guinness World Record will happen in such an incredible building, and actually the tallest hotel in the world, Rose Rayhaan by Rotana Dubai. It is indeed the biggest challenge of my career, and this is why I have been training really hard for the past five months. I am definitely hoping this whole event will be a great success for me and for this impressive property.”
Rose Rayhaan by Rotana Dubai is doing intense preparations for the historical climb scheduled on 30th January, 2012. General Manager Daniel Matthew commented, “We are extremely excited about this fantastic event, and I cannot think of a much better way to celebrate our second year anniversary than having the opportunity to go for our second world record.

It is our pleasure to have Krystian in the hotel we look forward to the climb wishing him all the best of luck”.
