The Burj al Arab is the World’s tallest hotel

Burj al Arab






















The crowning glory is the Burj al Arab (Arabian Tower) completed in October 1999 and officially opened on 1st December 1999. This extraordinary 321m tower is entirely unique in design, fulfiling the clients brief for a landmark building in Dubai. The Burj al Arab looks set to take its place amongst the likes of Sydney Opera House & the Eiffel Tower as symbols of their countries.
The Burj al Arab is the 15th tallest building in the world, and the tallest single structure hotel, standing 300m out to sea on a man made island, it has taken design and technology forward into the next millennium. Designed in the shape of a giant sail on a triangular plan the Burj al Arab Hotel is stunning in its simplicity and clarity. The Burj al Arab tower is already being covered in international media throughout the world, forming a backdrop for international events such as the powerboating World Championships.
