One of the most instantly recognizable hotels in the world, the iconic Burj Al Arab tower rises 321 metres above Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Wild Wadi Water Park. This unique sail-shaped building is situated on a man-made island some 280m offshore, linked to the mainland by a curving causeway. Despite its size, the Burj Al Arab holds just 27 double-storey floors which accommodate 202 bedroom suites ranging in sizes from 170 square meters for the One Bedroom Deluxe suite to 780 square meters for the stunning Royal suite.

An engineering masterpiece on many levels - the facade in particular represented an astonishing technical challenge, featuring a double-skinned Teflon-coated woven glass fibre screen - it is the first time such technology has been used vertically in such form and extent in any building worldwide. It is dazzling white by day and used as a canvas for a rainbow of spectacular light displays at night, providing a brilliant entrance to the marvels that await the guest inside. Combining the latest technology with a long-standing reputation for the ultimate Arabian hospitality, Burj Al Arab symbolizes the very essence of Dubai, embracing the best of the new alongside traditions of the past.


The interior design is as impressive as the exterior. Inspired by earth, air, fire and water Khuan Chew, of KCA International, used a vibrant colour palette including 1,590 metres of 24-carat gold leaf to embellish the incredible interior. At 180 metres, the world's tallest atrium is abundant in warm, natural light and flanked by golden columns and a central fountain where arches of water burst over 42 metres into the air

The Burj Al Arab is quite simply one of the most stunning and unique luxury hotels ever built.
