The luxury hotel has been named “The only worlds 7 star Hotel”, Burj Al Arab currently reigns as the “Most Luxurious Hotel in the World,” noted by media and travel professionals, and the hotel is the third tallest hotel in the world.

Burj Al Arab Jumeirah was built to resemble the sail of a dhow, a type of Arabian vessel. Two “wings” spread in a V to form a vast “mast”, while the space between them is enclosed in a massive atrium.

Architect Tom Wright is quoted as explaining this about the structure, “The client wanted a building that would become an iconic or symbolic statement for Dubai.” Judging from the structure, the Burj Al Arab is that very icon for Dubai.
