Luxury Burj al Arab

The Burj al Arab

Construction was completed in 1999. Khuan Chew of KCA International was hired as the interior designer. Chew used traditional Arab design elements inside. They included pointed arches and star shapes. But she also used many elements from other cultures, such as Italian marble and crystal chandeliers. The Burj al Arab was built to be one of the most expensive hotels in the world. The guest suites (sets of rooms) are large and luxurious. Most have full dining and living rooms. Some have cocktail bars, libraries, private movie theaters, and pool tables. Guests can arrange in-room meals with a personal chef.

At night a special hotel employee arrives with a pillow menu. Guests can pick from thirteen different kinds of pillows. The Burj al Arab’s restaurants are also unique. The Skybar extends like a metal tube from the hotel’s twenty-seventh floor. At 650 feet (200 m) above sea level, the bar has amazing views of the gulf. The Al Mahara restaurant offers guests another amazing view of the sea. In the center of the restaurant sits a 35,000-cubic-foot (990 cu. m) seawater aquarium. It has curved Plexiglas walls.
