Burj Al Arab
A global icon of Arabian luxury
from €1,100 per night
From the day it opened in 1999, Burj Al Arab has been the watchword of unparalleled luxury in Dubai and an instantly recognisable global icon. Located in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates and managed by Jumeirah hotel group, it is one of the tallest hotels in the world, although 39% of its total height is made up of non-occupiable space. Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) from Jumeirah Beach and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. The shape of the structure is designed to resemble the sail of a ship. It has a helipad near the roof at a height of 210 m (689 ft) above ground.
The Burj Al Arab holds only 28 double-story floors which accommodate 202 bedroom suites. The smallest suite occupies an area of 169 m2 (1,820 sq ft), the largest covers 780 m2 (8,400 sq ft). Suites feature design details that juxtapose east and west. White columns show great influence. Bathrooms are accented by mosaic tile patterns. The Royal Suite, billed at 24,000 per night, is listed at number 12 on World's 15 most expensive hotel suites compiled by CNN Go in 2012. Make an enquiry
