The hotel’s distinctive sail-shaped silhouette has made it an iconic symbol of modern Dubai. Often voted the world’s most luxurious hotel, the Burj Al Arab is one of the region’s most famous tourist landmarks. Built on a triangular man-made island, the billowing sail-like structure rises 321 metres above the sea and the hotels atrium lobby is the tallest in the world.
The Burj Al Arab sets a new standard for hospitality superlatives, including an underwater aquarium restaurant that you reach through a simulated submarine voyage, a fleet of Rolls-Royces on the forecourt and the famous helipad that has hosted numerous celebrity stunts. Where else will your cappuccino be sprinkled with gold dust?
