Al Arab

A 7 star hotel

One of the most incredible structures on Earth, the Burj Al Arab was built in the shape of an Arabian dhow, or yacht's sail. The planners wanted a monolithic structure but neither did they want to cast a shadow over downtown Dubai so they built it 280 meters out to sea. It is connected to the mainland by a bridge and can only be accessed by a fleet of Rolls Royces. The entrance hall is lined with rare Statutario marble (the same kind used by Michelangelo in his sculptures), in total, precious marble covers 24,000 square metres in the hotel. But you can’t have marble without gold so 1790 square meters of 24-carat gold leaf was used to also embellish the interior. 20,000 liters of water were used to create the geyser-style fountain that combines the finest design with a fibre-optic light display. There are three aquariums - one that circles a restaurant - that contain around 50 species of fish, shark and ray all illuminated by some of the hotel’s 28,000 light fixtures. Of course, you will want to arrive by helicopter – just make sure Andre Agassi and Roger Federer aren’t playing tennis match on the helipad first.
