Burj Al Arab, Dubai: A World Leader in Opulence

Posted: Jun. 5th, 2008  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Hotels: Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai is owned and operated by the Jumeirah Properties Hotel group; a name renowned for luxury and opulence. Definitely a leader of the group, the unique sail shape of Burj Al Arab's façade, as well as its overwhelming height, are recognized throughout the world.

Located south of Dubai on a man-made offshore island, the hotel is situated in the Jumeirah Beach resort complex, and its tower reaching over 321 meters above the Arabian Gulf, makes it the world's tallest hotel. The unique sail-shaped architecture pays homage the region's maritime heritage while its nautical theme is an extension of its neighbouring landmarks.

Once inside the hotel the guests are left open-mouthed at the sight of the spectacular interior featuring an immense atrium and cascading eclipse waterfall, colourful fibre optic display and fireball pyrotechnics. Only the finest materials have been used for the decoration of this sumptuous hotel including Statutario marble and 22-carat gold.

The 28-story tower houses 202 duplex suites with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Arabian Gulf and technological amenities such as laptop computers, remote controlled facilities are available as well as an ever present hotel butler.

The real pearls of Burj Al Arab are the two Royal Suites situated on the 25th floor. These suites boast special amenities such a private elevator, cinema, rotating beds, oversized dressing cabinets and library. Decked out with marble and gold, leopard print tufted carpets and mahogany furniture the rooms are beautifully appointed.

Other exclusive services include: in-suite check-in, an around-the-clock concierge, a private reception desk on each floor, helicopter transfers and chauffeured transportation by Rolls Royce. Guests are also granted complimentary access to Wild Wadi Water Park, and a wide variety of children's amenities are also on hand. It is no wonder the Burj Al Arab has received many international travel and tourism accolades.

The Burj Al Arab offers several varieties of restaurants and they have collectively won over 50 awards world wide. Amongst the best are the Al Mahara Seafood restaurant recently listed as one of the top ten restaurants in the world. This amazing dining establishment not only offers the highest quality food but also takes guests on a three-minute simulated submarine voyage from the reception area to the restaurant, an extraordinary experience. The Al Muntaha offers spectacular 360° degree views at 200 metres above the Arabian Gulf as you dine and can be reached via an express panoramic lift.

This is not a mere stay in a luxury hotel it is a truly astonishing and incomparable event!
