If you are not a frequent traveler and are wanting to get blown away by the brilliance of a hotel, look no further. The Burj Al Arab is one of the most breathtaking hotels I have ever stayed it. Sitting on its own man-made island 280m (918ft) offshore and connected to the mainland by a gently curving causeway, anyone who stays at this hotel, leaves with stunning memories.
The location of the hotel is fantastic, as it sits 15km south of Downtown and 25km from Dubai International Airport. Thats not it. The Wild Wadi Watermark is a short walk away. Moreover, Madinat Jumeirah, a dining, entertainment and hotel complex, is right next door.
Lets talk about the design a little bit. Carved out in the shape and size of a billowing ship– a tribute to the nation’s seafaring heritage – the landmark building is simply breathtaking in its overall look.
In terms of the interior design of the hotel, there are vibrant colors inspired by the elements, carvings of gold leaf and upto 30 distinct styles of marble (including the super rare Statuario marble, which was utilized by Michelangelo in his masterpieces).
While the interior is mostly vintage, the external design if more modern and exotic. Smoothly stretching more than 300ft out into the sea, it boasts two pools – including a saltwater one that seems to blend beautifully into the horizon.
Talise Spa is another feature. It spread more than two dimensions with Moroccan-style mosaics, it includes light-filled treatment rooms and separate unending pools for people disregarding the sea, alongside saunas, steam rooms and dive pools.
A staff-to-suite proportion of 8:1 and a group of nonstop stewards mean administration is best in class, despite the fact that this is obviously not the spot for the individuals who don’t care for being gotten all worked up about.
The hotel has 202 suites, every one masterminded more than two stories with a general staircase, floor-to-roof windows and private head servant. The section level one-bedroom suite is embellished in shades of regal blue, dark red and splendid yellow, with curiously large couches, plated furniture and, to some degree strangely, a goliath reflect on the roof over the bed.
There’s a substantial work area zone, total with iMac and printer, and even the TV and coffee machine are gold. While not the most quieting condition, it’s unbelievably sumptuous.
The bathroom is similarly as terrific, with a whirlpool shower that could without much of a stretch fit four individuals, shower tangles so extravagant your feet leave a profound engraving and full-estimate Hermès enhancements.
There are upto nine restaurants and bars to browse. Mixed drinks at Gold on 27 are an unquestionable requirement; the city sees around evening time are entrancing and the creations, utilizing fixings, for example, foie gras and darkened truffle oil, genuinely inventive.
Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara, under the stewardship of the Michelin-featured British culinary expert and with a tropical aquarium as its focal point, is likewise generously suggested for its straightforward yet exceptionally achieved seafood.
