Every city has a signature building, instantly recognizable by visitors from all over the world. London has Big Ben, New York the Empire State, and Dubai has the Burj Al Arab.
At 321 meters high, the Burj Al Arab is bigger than the Eiffel Tower. It’s built on artificial land, some 280 meters offshore and linked to the mainland by a slender, gently curving causeway. The hotel has a stunning, signature sail shape that is dazzling white by day and used as a canvas for a rainbow of spectacular light displays at night.
The Burj offers 202 duplex suites, each with floor to ceiling windows, breathtaking views of the ocean, plasma TV, DVD player, and laptop computer with internet access. Privacy and service are second to none, no floor has more than 12 suites and personal butlers are provided.
The lavishly decorated Assawan Spa & Health Club is located on the 18th floor of the Burj and offers pools, a squash court, Jacuzzis, spas, massage, beauty and therapy rooms. Guests also enjoy complimentary use of extensive watersports and leisure facilities at the nearby Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the Wild Wadi Water Park.
