Trip to the World's only 7 star Hotel: Burj Al Arab (in Dubai)

So in a previous post I mentioned that a lot of people I knew had visited Dubai, and some stayed at world's only 7 star hotel, which is there. & I was hoping my friends would give me permission to share it with you & she did!!! I've never been to Dubai, and um those that hotel costs about $1,592.66 to $10,889.98. oh yeah that's per night :)

 
  
 


yeah..... I think I'll keep hustling for Mrytle Beach, Vegas & Miami for now. Well my friend would rather be Anonymous, so lets call her A, for Ashley. so I can't put any pictures that show her or her family, but their still pretty badass pics. so it'll be like she took us on her trip (^_^)

OH YEAH!!! The Hotel is called: Burj Al Arab (website link)
(screen capture of the website)




Ashely stayed in this pretty badass suite! it was 2 floors, living room,dining room, freshly squeezed juice etc. And if you weren't staying in the hotel, but wanted to check it out, you could pay to take a tour, seriously, they have tours. & camera's couldnt be used by guests in certain public areas like the dinner place, to be courteous to other guess, if not you could order fabulous room service.

Look at the hotel! watch this vid I found on youtube!! A-MA-ZING, gorgeous architecture


Are you blown away yet? cuz I was even before I watched it. The Video paints 1000 pictures






Now major cool points: u know how many of us might get candy in a nice hotel, or perhaps little bottles of free hair shampoos etc, They got IPODS!! My mum from her trip was also telling me how people have gold plated cars, like the whole car's gold plated, and these are young people! wow, crazy. oooh and they also have an Dubai also has indoor Ice place thingie, with fake snow etc, where you can snow board and gorgeous Underwater hotel!!!! where you can see the fish etc. oh yeah and as for Ashley's hotel I'm looking forward to visiting & seeing all the people checking in at night with their Louis's and dark celebrity shades at night. I love Ashley she's so.... down to earth, lol i saw her facebook pictures and didnt even know that's the hotel she stayed in, until i randomly started talking about some 7 star hotel I heard of.


PS: omg at the top right of the reservation section, under the current converter look what it say:
Hotel
With your chauffeur driven Rolls Royce, discreet in-suite check in, private reception desk on every floor and a brigade of highly trained butlers who provide around-the-clock attention, you can be assured of a highly personalised service throughout your stay.

now let's enjoy Ashley's trip:

Better News I heard its almost dirt cheap to shop there. well maybe not but its really really affordable stuff, if you go to the right places. cause you could also find a lot of luxury items.

SOME OTHER IMAGES! that are not taken by my friend, but show us Burj Al Arab's grand beauty. it's so exquisite.

  6. I love Dubai, and was just there a few weeks ago, but it can be hell on your wallet--that's why we stayed at the Crown Plaza!

    Shopping there rocks!

  7. I agree bringing a bf there isn't even necessary. I just got that honeymoon thingy on my mind when I saw all of that lol.

    Sure you can use the 3 column Minima template if having two mini column within that one column if u feel it would mess things up. if u do follow the 3 column temp u can move the one from the left beside the right. Then again following tutorials step by step of doing so helps (test-blog).

  30. I have heard of the Burj, and it seems that A for Ashley had a whale of a time there, with her entire family. You are right about Dubai being a shopping haven. A lot of friends trip there to get their LVs and Hermes and Chanels... you know, that kind of stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I can't believe I just stumbled on this post! Dubai is my home and trust me, we're so used to this kind of extravagance that its pretty much a way of life! Not sayin' that people over here are spoilt, its just how it is :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow, Simply amazing. Really it is one of the greatest hotel in the world.
