One of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and an iconic Dubai structure, the Burj Al Arab will undergo a makeover.
With works scheduled to begin summer next year, the sail-shaped seven-star resort has become one of the must-visit destinations in the world since opening in 1999. Jumeirah hotel group’s chief executive officer, Jose Silva, told Arabian Business:
“Many people travel to go see the Burj Al Arab. It is one of the world’s most photographed – and Instagrammed – hotels. It has become an icon of Dubai in itself.”
We are yet to learn the exact changes that the hotel will undergo, but seeing the works happening at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel next door, we expect them to be extensive.
Most recently, the Burj Al Arab added a floating terrace that stretches out into the sea where guests can hire cabana’s, swim in the infinity pool and dine at Scape restaurant.
