Burj Al Arab is the world's tallest hotel building, taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 60m shorter than the Empire State Building. With its helipad on the 28th floor and a restaurant seemingly suspended in mid air, this hotel has become a landmark and icon on the Dubai skyline.Designed in the shape of a billowing Arabian dhow sail, the façade represented an astonishing technical challenge, featuring a double-skinned Teflon-coated woven glass fibre screen. It is the first time such technology has been used vertically in such form and extent in any building worldwide. It is dazzling white by day and used as a canvas for a rainbow of spectacular light displays at night, providing a brilliant entrance to the marvels that await the guest inside.Combining the latest technology with a long-standing reputation of Arabian hospitality, Burj Al Arab symbolizes the very essence of Dubai, embracing the best of the new alongside traditions of the past.
Burj Al Arab is located in the Jumeirah Beach area of Dubai, 15 km from the main city centre and 25 km from Dubai International Airport. It stands proudly on a man-made island some 280 meters offshore and is linked to the mainland by a slender, gently curving causeway.
