The United Arab Emirates


The word "luxury" has been redefined with the Burj Al Arab hotel. Flanking the Dubai coastline, the all-suite hotel's architectural design mimics a billowing sail, soaring to a height of 1,053 feet ? a prominent landmark in the city's skyline. Adding to its unparalleled opulence are reception desks on every floor, a brigade of butlers on call around the clock, rain showers and Jacuzzis in every suite, and six award-winning signature restaurants. The bi-level Assawan Spa & Health Club features separate men's and women's spa and health club facilities. Highlights include two wellness gyms, infinity pools, solariums, and treatment rooms overlooking the Arabian Gulf and coastline.
