The Burj Al Arab is Dubai’s iconic sail-shaped hotel.
Perched on the shore of the Arabian Gulf, the mammoth hotel is the fifth tallest hotel in the world and part of Dubai based international luxury hotel chain, Jumeirah.
And with many Dubai hotels, nabbing the coveted five star rating, this ultra-luxurious destination was unofficially been dubbed the world’s only seven star hotel when it launched in 1999.
Here’s why the Burj Al Arab deserves every bit of that rating and more…
The Burj Al Arab sits on a man-made island all on its own
A bridge connects the island to the mainland – and a new beach club, Scape has been added as an extension to the front via even more reclaimed land
Like the rest of the resort, Scape is undeniably stunning
The famous atrium is 180 metres tall
The swanky hotel boasts 202 bedroom suites – how DREAMY is this view?
A stay in the Royal Suite – listed among the top 20 most expensive suites in the world – costs nearly AED100,000 per night
Dine surrounded by nearly 990,000 litres of water in the virtual submarine at Nathan Outlaw’s Al Mahara restaurant
Or take a dip in the Talise Spa private pool which comes with views for dayssss
You need a reservation to get past the front door
Arguably one of the most exclusive hotels in the world – a visit here is a must for tourists visiting Dubai.
