The architect has designed this hotel in a shape of a sail. Burj-al-Arab means tower of Arabia in Arabic. This hotel is acknowledged as one of the best hotels in the world.
It is a seven star hotel. Only the wealthiest in the world can afford to stay in this hotel. The height of this hotel is 371 meters. If you sail by the coast of Dubai. It is impossible to overlook this hotel, because it is like the elephant in the room.
For the best service and the quality fine dining this is the place to go. The chauffeurs will drive you with the newest Rolls Royce to the Hotel form the Air Port.
I only can dream about spending time at Burj-Al-Arab. It seems like a blessing to the Arabs to have a such a oil rich soil. This means enormous healthy economy. I saw pictures of Dubai in 1992, then it was only a desert landscape with few buildings. I also saw pictures of Dubai in 2006. It is unthinkable how fast the city has grown from ghost town to a modern oasis.
