The only 7 star hotel in the world, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai

The Burj Al Arab is sometimes called the Tower of the Arabs. It is a luxury hotel and some claim the most exclusive hotel in the world. We tried to visit it but this was not possible for non guests. The only opportunity you had was to make reservations for a drink in the bar or book a table in one of the restaurants. The hotel tries to keep non guest away from their facilities by making it extremely expensive. 50 euro for a drink and the restaurant prices are extremely expensive. We don’t mind paying a lot of money for a good restaurant but if you read the poor reviews on Tripadvisor, you think twice before paying these prices. We decided not to waste our money. The hotel was constructed in the shape of a sailboat. The smallest suite is 169m² big and the cheapest rate is around 1.000 euro a night. You could travel to the hotel with a Roll Royce or by helicopter, when you have this kind of money you don’t care anymore about a penny. The Burj Al Arab is not for us mortals but only for the super rich people of this planet.

De Burj Al Arab wordt soms ook de Tower of the Arabs genoemd. Sommigen beweren dat dit het meest luxueuze hotel ter wereld is. We probeerden het te bezoeken, maar je mocht enkel binnen als gast. De enige mogelijkheid was iets te gaan drinken in de bar of een tafeltje te reserveren in het restaurant. Het hotel probeert niet gasten buiten te houden. 50 euro voor een drankje aan de bar en dineren is extreem duur. We zijn bereid veel te betalen voor een goed restaurant, maar als je de commentaren op Tripadvisor leest van denk je wel twee keer na. We besloten ons geld niet te verspillen. Het hotel is gebouwd in de vorm van een zeilboot. De kleinste suite is 169 m² groot en het goedkoopste tarief per nacht is ongeveer 1.000 euro. Je kan naar het hotel gaan met een Rolls Royce of een helikopter, wie dit hotel kan veroorloven kijkt niet meer op een Euro. De Burj Al Arab is niet voor gewone stervelingen als ons, maar voor de superrijken der aarde..

  3. The hotel looks like a rocket ship!!!! I never even knew there was seven star anything!!! Five stars is the highest I have heard of. The flowers are so pretty, they must have gorgeous grounds.

  4. Beautiful photos. But here am I thinking you are a multi-millionaire and could easily afford a thousand euros a night. But of course you are right, rich people don't waste their money, that's how they stay rich!

  8. Your photos are very "rich" indeed. I doubt I'll spend the might, so seeing your compositions will be enough for me.

  9. Burj Al Arab is already a name of its own. It has become a landmark in Dubai too. You can't miss it if you are there.
