The Only 7 Star Hotel in the World! Amazing Mega Building Design

Burj Al Arab is designed to be the ultimate lavishing hotel of the industry. It’s the second tallest and the most luxurious hotel in the entire world. It was built on an artificial island 920 ft away from the beach to keep absolute privacy and tranquility and consists of 28 double-storey floors and 202 bedroom suites despite its size. Also, it is built to look like a “billowing sail” to become an iconic structure, a monument and a tourist attraction. The client wanted the architect to design a building that can be a symbolic statement for Dubai like the Opera House in Sydney or the pyramids in Egypt the thing that raised the cost eventually to reach 650 million dollars. Suffice to know that the cheapest suite starts at $1000 per night, and the royal suite starts at $28000 per night only which renders the hotel to be the most expensive hotel. The Hotel received praise along with criticism but still this edifice signifies a triumph in the middle of the desert. However, it became to rhyme with the name of Dubai, giving the impression of the opulent lifestyle of the country. Please take a look at the pictures below and live the majestic sumptuousness…

What an amazing structure! I don't think I could ever afford to stay in a hotel such as that. Hahaha As blonde poet said, if someone would give us a free stay there, it would be an interesting experience I imagine. :-)

Very interesting hub.

I love the architecture - the building from the outside is absolutely gorgeous.

I'm not so keen on the interiors - for me, they are a bit over the top.

Thanks for sharing it with us, and all the great photos, too.

Glad to hear that the price includes breakfast! This is absolutely amazing. So glad that you included all these photos. Afraid it is a bit out of my normal spending practices for a hotel room...but fun to see how other people live when traveling. Good hub.

It's a bit too over the top for my liking, would prefer an old rustic guesthouse on the beach somewhere, or even just a hut on the beach lol

Dear issues veritas, unlike what you said, citizin in this country has one of the highest living standards even better than some European countries. So, I don't see harm in that. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

You're welcome Elynjo.

My dear BriteEdwards, thanks for your kind visit, and for 28000, you will get a king-like treatment for the whole day. I don't say it is worth it, but I think that they did a great job.

Dear eaasi3574, thanks for stopping by.


eaasi3574 7 years ago

Great information. I'll have to put some of your suggestions into practice.

Impressive exterior, interiors not all to my liking. A marvel of architecture and engineering for sure.

Presidential suite: 28.000. What do you get for that? apart from a suite with decorations maybe not to your liking? What can you do there that cannot be done elsewhere?

Expensive, great architecture, impressive.

garish and ridiculous while the people in that country live in poverty.

It is a lifetime experience to stay there. And by the way, they opended this hotel to the public for touring only and it costs around 50 dollars.

I saw this on TV and thought how beautiful it looked, amazing pictures, I need to stay there, if only I could afford it!
