"Burj Al Arab" Burj Al Arab Tip by Willettsworld

Burj Al Arab, Dubai: 40 reviews and 105 photos


There's only a few hotels in the world that are famous enough to become tourist attractions in their own right. Burj Al Arab is one of them. Opened in 1999 it has become an iconic landmark for the city. It costs a fair bit to stay in the world's first 'seven-star' hotel that is actually classed as five-star deluxe and there's a whole host of reasons why. Built on an artificial island, 280m offshore, the 320m sail shaped hotel houses 202 suites - each with their own private butler. Everything that looks like it's gold actually is - 24 carat gold leafed furnishings and fittings.
