Burj Al Arab Hotel Dubai

The Burj Al Arab (in Arabic means Tower of the Arabs) is a luxury and the only seven star hotel in the world. It is the tallest building used exclusively as a hotel with 321 metres (1,053 ft). The Burj Al Arab is located on an artificial island 280 metres (919 ft) out from Jumeirah beach.

Despite its size, it holds only 28 double-story floors which accommodate 202 bedroom suites. The smallest suite occupies an area of 169 square meters (1,819 sq ft), the largest covers 780 square meters (8,396 sq ft). The cost of staying in a suite is between $1,000 and $28,000 per night.

One of its restaurants, Al Muntaha (Arabic meaning "Highest" or "Ultimate"), is located 200 metres (660 ft) above the Persian Gulf, offering an extraordinary view of Dubai.

The building is shape like the sail of a dhow and is widely known as one of the symbols of Dubai City.
