HOTEL BURJ AL ARAB DUBAI

With its distinctive shape that's been designed to look like the sail of a ship, the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is easily one of the most recognizable hotels in the world. Mostly used in pictures that flag Dubai and the United Arab Emirates as a whole, this hotel is one of the world’ most luxurious resorts, and one of the very few 7-starred hotels. It is located on a human-made island and is linked to the mainland via a bridge.

The uniquely shaped silhouette makes for more than a stunning place to stay, usually the symbol of modern Dubai. So if you visit this place, it would literally mean that you have stayed at one of the best there is, and probably do not need to visit other hotels.

Hotel Burj Al Arab boasts of the world’s largest fleet of Rolls Royce, 24 karat gold iPods, butler service exquisite dining and a rooftop helipad. Well, spending as little as an evening here is undoubtedly an expensive affair, but at the end of the tide, it’s a visit that’s worth every penny, especially if you’re looking for the ultimate splurge of luxury.

Right from the first time you tread foot on the venue, is the start of an experience that the worst of Ambrosia will not be able to erase.

For your choice of transport, it’s either the world’s largest fleet of Rolls Royce’s driven by chauffeurs or a dedicated chopper transfer service. For the latter, you will arrive in a helicopter that allows you catch and bird’s eye view of the city for seven to 10 minutes, concluding with a dramatic landing on the hotel’s helipad on the 28th level.

It doesn’t end there still. From the moment you enter the room you booked, the butlers kindly offer assistance with unpacking your luggage- where else in the world does that even happen? In case you missed the message during the chauffeur service or chopper touchdown, this is another chance for you to realize that you have just arrived in a place where you are the king, where every request in anticipated and granted.

Truth be told, there’s no such thing as a seven-star establishment, as no hotel can go higher than five. But it's this Dubai-based hotel’s over-the-bar rating that brings in an urban myth that went out of hand, but there’s nothing else that dominates the city’s skyline as much as the elegant structure.

Unarguably the tallest hotel in the world, and perhaps the most subtle, save the gold-leaf undercoat, dancing fountains in the foyer and fireworks that take off from the bridge to herald the arrival of the VVIPs. The one place where “very important” does not make the cut, Hotel Burj Al Arab is testament to the fact that no one comes to Dubai in search of an understatement.

Rooms

The only way to get inside this hotel without paying for a room is to book a table at one of the establishment’s pricey eateries. Al Muntaha is located at the top floor, but thanks (and no thanks) to its bafflingly bright interior, you cannot see the view outside. The hotel offers suite-only accommodation, and due to the availability of 2020 luxurious of them, it is a paradise which offers travelers the complete privacy and lavishness that every vacation duly deserves.

Each of them come with spectacular views of the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf. The suites are equipped with iMac computers, media hubs, widescreen LED TVs and master bedrooms with giant-sized Jacuzzis, rain shower and a full-sized Hermes amenities.

This hotel is known for its butlers, not just for the sake of it, but because it's home to one of the world’s most populated brigade of butlers that are available round the clock.

The exceptional personal service is both the least and the height of it, as the hospitality at the hotel is priceless and unparalleled.

Activities

Catching the fun at Jumeirah is no grizzly task, as there is an abundance of activities to lavish away your time and be satisfied enough to tell the tales.

One of the biggest things you need to see is the hotel’s turtle rehabilitation facility, a flagship species for the conservation of the marine environment, protected across most of the planet. This is the place in Dubai where all seven species of beautiful marine turtles found around the globe are listed as vulnerable to extinction, endangered or even critically endangered.

Get to see the Hawksbill turtle, which is a species that is native to the Middle East and listed as a severely endangered one with only about 8,000 nesting females left all around the world.

Then there’s a chance for you to get thoroughly wet while splashing around the Wild Wadi Waterpark. Located in front of the stunning hotel, the water facility offers a whopping 30 rides and attractions just enough for families staying. The facility is themed around the narrative of Juha, one of the well-known characters in Arabian folklore.

Have you ever seen this on TV - jeep-like vehicles just running in what seems like an endless stretch of desert sand, under the heat of an apparently scorching sun and nowhere near the obviously far away horizons.

Well, most of what you see as advertisements are from a treasure trove of history, culture, and adventure comprised in the mesmerizing sightseeings and sound experiences in Dubai. Burj Al Arab Jumeirah affords its guests a chance to go on this exciting trip, exploring one of the activity and elegance hotspots of the continent. Expeditions are carefully and interestingly arranged for desert safari, bird watching, city sightseeing, museums, Heritage Village, Dubai Creek waterfront, Gold Souk, and cringe-worthy art galleries.

If golfing isn’t your thing, sightseeing probably gives you the quivers and turtles seem to intimidate you, then you will love some water sports, even if you do not like swimming so much. At the Jumeirah hotel, there's so much to be done in the water, so whether you want to swim or ride, there’s just about the right thing to get your adrenaline and fun hormones active.

As you would expect, they’ve sourced ingredients from around the globe, and have a natural, fresh produce is flown in. Nightly dinners at a selection of the hotel’s restaurants are included in the packages from Luxury Escapes. Our favorite is Al Mahara by Nathan Outlaw, who serves the best seafood in Dubai. It’s a relaxed atmosphere, with a focus on artful simplicity, and a huge aquarium filled with 50 species of fish.
