Burj Al Arab

Designed to resemble a billowing sail, the Burj Al Arab hotel soars to a height of 321 metres, dominating the Dubai coastline. At night, the 'Burj' offers an unforgettable sight, surrounded by choreographed colour sculptures of water and fire. This all-suite hotel reflects the finest that the world has to offer. Burj Al Arab Mission Statement: "To be the world's most luxurious hotel with a team dedicated to outstanding personalized service, surpassing guest expectation by providing the ultimate Arabian Hospitality Experience"
