THE LUXURIOUS BURJ AL ARAB



Do you want to stay at the most luxurious hotel in Dubai?

You can visit Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, Uni Emirate Arab. This hotel is very unique located at Jumeirah Beach. This hotel has 310 meters height and 28 floors that consists 202 bedroom. 

The hotel building is designed to resemble the form of a sail boat. This hotel is often called a seven-star-hotel because the services and facilities is very luxurious.  I thought that there’s just a five-star-hotel hahaha. I can’t imagine how luxurious that hotel at first, hahaha.
Burj Al Arab was designed by architect Tom Wright from from WS Atkins PLC. This hotel was built in 1994 and opened in December 1999. Tom Wright said that this building should be iconic or symbolic to Dubai on request from his client.


To enter this hotel we must thru the strict gates entrance. In front gates we will be asked to show a reservation or key room if we have checked in before. After passing through the gate entrance then we go pass the bridge over the beach (because Burj Al Arab located on an artificial island). When entered the lobby we greeted with our name. In the hotel there’s no reception desk. We accompanied by the waitress to the room. In the room there is a work desk to do a check-in process.
The room has 2 floors. In the first floor there are :
·       A family room
·       A dining room which has been decorated with many fruit and wine.
·       A work room that already contained a laptop that connected to the internet
·       A small bathroom
·       A small warehouse to place the suitcase
In the second floor there are :
·       A big bedroom with a view of the sea and the city
·       A bathroom

Burj Al Arab lobby

All the rooms look luxurious. Sofas and pillowcasesare made of goose feathers and there’s a remote control for open or close the curtains and lamp. Every floor has a private assistant that will opened room so the keyroom never used except to entry the gates.
 We can visit this hotel without having to stay overnight, like have lunch or dinner there. But to have lunch or dinner there we have to book a few months earlier.
In the hotel there is also a recreational area that just for hotel guests. Such as swimming pool, waterpark and beach. To get to the beach from hotel can use a hotel car that just takes a few minutes. If we want to get around from hotel we can use a local taxi or use some hotel cars like Ferrari, BMW, lamborghini, and roll royce which can be rented.




Or we can also rent a helicopter if we want to go to the airport because this hotel has a helipad above the hotel. 





And the helipad can be use to playing tennis. 

 And if you wanna taste the most expensive room you can book Royal Suite Room there. This room is located in 25 floors. To stay at this room you have to pay about 24.000 USD or about Rp 240.000.000,00 for one night. That’s very fantastic price, right?

Royal suite room
This room consists by 2 floors. There is a big dining room complete with the service, the bedroom is divided in two for men and women, where the bed is rotatably, and if we want to read there’s a personal library. We can also spa-style bath and there’s a special swimming pool for this room.


Burj Al Arab has a mainstay restaurant that is Al Mahara, this restaurant special serving seafood dishes and has a large glass wall with the view of the aquarium. Al Muntaha restaurant is the ideal place to enjoy tea and cocktails.



Skyview Bar is amazing too! Afternoon tea at Skyview Bar costs 560AED (~150USD) per person, and its served in seven courses. With that you receive unlimited coffee, tea, scones, finger sandwiches, pastries, etc. This bar gives you amazing views of the Gulf and coast. 







I hope one day I could stay at the royal suite room there hahahaha!
