Burj Al Arab, Dubai Overview

Established in 1999, Burj Al Arab is one of the premium hotels in Dubai, located on an artificial island off Jumeirah Road. Designed in the shape of a dhow sail, this iconic landmark houses an array of shiny chauffeur-driven limousines and a private helipad. A prior reservation (on its website) is required to get past the lobby security to visit its restaurant if you are not staying there.

Talking of luxury, the hotel features an attractive fountain, an admirable lobby and richness induced 203 suites. Standing tall at the height of 180 meters, the royalty factor of the hotel is brought out by its may interior elements adorned in real gold!

Don't visit unless you've time on your hand. You won't be allowed to enter and all you can do is to click pictures of it. Try to visit it at the end of the trip and don't be disappointed if it fails (Read More)to live upto its hype. Visit downtown Dubai and roam around in exotic car shops instead. Catching a sight of rare cars around this hotel is no big deal
