Dubai Hotels

The luxury Hotels and the tallest building in the world.

 

Situated on the northern shore of the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai is one of the seven members of the United Arab Emirates. Dubai is a centre for trade, finance and tourism, with an economy revolving around tourism, sea trade, high technology service business and real estate. Dubai’s 2.2 million inhabitants, of whom a considerable part are immigrant workers, make it the most populous of the emirates. At a surface area of just over 4,000 square kilometres, Dubai is also the second largest of the emirates.

 

The climate in Dubai is hot and rather humid, with temperatures normally varying between 20 and 40 degrees centigrade. Rainfall is moderate and occurs mainly in January, February and March. The dominant landscape type in Dubai is sandy deserts and in the south of the country there are also gravel deserts.

One of the most well known landmarks in Dubai is the Burj Al Arab, which translates as “Tower of the Arabs”. Burj Al Arab is, at its 321 metres, currently the highest structure in the world to be used exclusively as a hotel. The hotel is built on an artificial island 280 metres off the Jumeirah beach in the southern part of Dubai city. The spectacular design of the Burj Al Arab draws inspiration from the sail of a dhow, an Arabian kind of sailing vessel. Inside the spectacular membrane façade is the world’s tallest atrium at 180 metres.

 

There are two restaurants in the Burj Al Arab, Al Muntaha and Al Mahara. Al Muntaha is suspended in thin air 200 metres above then Persian Gulf, on the side of the hotel facing the ocean. Al Mahara is on the ground level and features a giant seawater aquarium holding more than one million litres of water. This restaurant is considered to be among the top ten restaurants of the world.

 

Another spectacular hotel in Dubai is the Atlantis. This hotel stands on the outer breakwater surrounding a man-made island with luxury villas called the Palm. In addition to approximately 2,000 hotel rooms this complex also offers a water theme park and plenty of retail spaces. Access to the Atlantis is provided by a monorail that connects the resort to the main Palm island.

 

Burj Dubai is the pride and joy of Dubai. This architectural design by the infamous Emaar has captured much attention from the public.

Being the tallest building in the world at just over 629 meters, (2,063 feet) Burj Dubai had a fascinating journey to get to the sky and has captured our hearts and eyes. Rather than just another tall business building.
