Welcome to 7ojozat blog. Our first hotel post won’t be a surprise but more of a must for the 6 stars hote. Burj Al-Arab is what we are talking about here. The design of Tom Wright in Dubai was by the time it finished, 1999, the tallest pure hotel construction. While no project budget was ever released to the public, analysts estimate that a break even of period of 400 fully booked years is needed. So was that a failure project? Depends on what’s your definition of failure and success here. The goal behind this huge project is mostly strategic to attract attention to Dubai as a worldwide center for pleasure and business. In that sense, I don’t think you could say it failed.
A single night inside this magnificent structure would cost few thousands of dollars, and be ready for huge service charge bill. The most expensive room is the highest one. I have seen a documentary about it once, but honestly, it was costly but not relaxing. Strong red colors and rotating room, not my choice. See this video for some more insight.
If you want to read more about Burj Al-Arab, Wikipedia is your best pick. If you plan on visiting Dubai, and most likely those prices won’t suit you, then take a look at the list of over 100 hotels there and compare their prices.
