Designed to resemble a billowing sail, Burj Al Arab soars to a height of 321 meters, dominating the Dubai coastline. A chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce, private reception on every floor and a brigade of highly trained butlers assure personalized service throughout your stay at this member of American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts. Arranged over two levels, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows gazing across the Arabian Gulf, each duplex suite accommodation reflects the finest the world has to offer.
Among the selection of 8 superior restaurants, the signature Al Muntaha, whose name means "the highest," floats at 200 meters above the gulf. Down below, the virtual submarine-accessible Al Mahara serves exquisite seafood and boasts a magnificent oval aquarium throughout the restaurant. When it's time to wind down, nowhere instills a feeling of pampering and well-being better than the breathtakingly beautiful, 18th-floor Assawan Spa & Health Club, whose setting would surely make a poet sigh.
