The Most Expensive Hotel in the World The 'Arabian Tower' - the realization of the vision of HH General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - stands on its own man- made island 280 metres offshore in the surf of the Arabian Gulf. At 321 metres (or 1053 feet) the Burj Al Arab is the world's tallest hotel. Two massive arched struts radiating from the central 'mast' - joined by a 'sail' to create a huge 60-storey atrium within - are studded with spotlights set like jewels in a crown, and washed with coloured exterior lighting in the evenings. The dazzling white 'sail' - fabricated of double- skinned Teflon-coated woven glass fibre - is illuminated by 142 floodlights at night, creating a dramatic light show visible for miles.
The hotel use only ‘Rolls Royce Silver Seraphs’ to chauffer its guests.
A Spectacular Entrance & Dazzling Interiors A stunning water and fire display at the hotel entrance greets guests before they enter a sumptuously decorated lobby. Granites and marbles, textiles and carpets, artworks and sculptures were produced all over the world exclusively in Arabic themes for the hotel.
Twin escalators alongside a huge coral reef aquarium wall ascend from the lobby to the Mezzanine floor, with a spectacularly illuminated water cascade between them.
Reception Level Here in the 'Sahn Eddar' or ‘reception area’, the awesome 60 storey atrium dominates, with the blue triangle of the ceiling soaring 180 metres overhead. There is no ‘check-in’ area - guests are met by a personal guest service manager to complete check-in in privacy and comfort, then escorted to the bank of lifts where some of the fastest elevators in the world deliver guests to their accommodation floor at speeds of up to six metres a second. Once at their suites, guests are greeted by butlers who demonstrate the suite's sophisticated technology before unpacking the luggage.
Guest reception at each floor is equipped with a ‘Futronix Floor Master Controller‘- when a guest arrives the receptionist selects the room number and turns all the lighting in the guest's room to a pre-programmed 'welcome' scene. Similarly, when a guest leaves, all lights can be turned off. There is a master panel by the front door of each suite for guests to turn all lighting to a 'welcome' scene, or to an 'exit' scene that excludes important areas possibly still occupied, such as bedrooms and bathrooms.
Finest in Dining - The Restaurants Elevators to 'Al Mahara' Seafood Restaurant take guests on an amazing underwater journey to a restaurant surrounding a 300,000 litre coral reef aquarium. Subdued lighting reflects from polished surfaces and rich carpets with downlights set in the reflective ceiling. There are also three exclusive private dining rooms with aquarium views.
Other restaurants in the hotel include the 'Sahn Eddar' lounge in the Mezzanine, 'Al Iwan' Arabian cuisine restaurant in the Atrium, 'Babu Al Yam' - the Sea's Door- next to the pool and sundeck, and the nearby 'Juna' lounge.
At the very top of the hotel is 'Al Muntaha', an amazing 140-seat restaurant housed in the 'wing' across the mast at 200 metres with incredible views extending over the Arabian Gulf and back over Dubai.
