Wordless Wednesday - Luxury (Burj Al Arab - Dubai)

Wordless Lot of words wednesday(rules are meant to be broken at times :P)

My visit to Burj Al Arab - The tallest hotel(1,053 ft) in the world is one the best experiences that I could have ever got in my life. Its sheer luxury :)

This hotel stands on a entirely man made island which is 280 mts out from Jumeirah beach, and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. It is an iconic structure whose shape mimics the sail of a ship. I can definitely say its one of the most beautifully built and designed structure.

Al Muntaha meaning "ultimate or highest"(One in the above picture), is the suspended restaurant located 200 m above the Persial Gulf offering a view of Dubai. This restaurant is supported by a full Cantilever that extends 27m from either side of the mast and is accessed by a panoramic elevator.

This hotel has 60 floors and is said to be the first seven star hotel in the world :)

The interiors are classic and truly royal.

I was excited to have my breakfast there and was even more lucky to have got prior permissions to sight see the hotel which is otherwise prohibited.

The experience can be called much more than a day :)
