Burj Al Arab - Dubai

Recommended Posts

The self-proclaimed most luxurious hotel in the world is about to offer its guests even more lavish amenities during their stay.

Dubai's opulent all-suite Burj Al Arab, which is built on an artificial island, is extending further out into the sea, with a luxury leisure outdoor space.

'North Deck' will fan out 328 feet into the Arabian Gulf, providing its guests with exclusive access to 32 cabanas and 400 sun loungers along with a range of new facilities.

Visitors to the new area, opening in the second quarter of 2016, will be able to unwind at one of the new hotel swimming areas, which include a 6,587-sq-ft fresh water pool and 8,912-sq-ft salt water pool; while also taking advantage of the deck's restaurant and bar.

Manufactured in Finland and shipped over 8,000 nautical miles to Dubai, the entire deck left Finland on January 9, 2016 and is currently being transported to Dubai by sea.

On arrival at the hotel in mid-February, the six sections will be lifted by crane and lowered onto a grid of 90 steel piles, stretching from the hotel out into the Arabian Gulf.

All elements of the construction and steel pile installation process have been considered with the marine environment in mind; specifically designed to provide shade for local fish and to attract undersea ecosystems that are known to cluster around steel piles.
Anthony McHale, General Manager of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, commented: 'As a hotel we are dedicated to surpassing guest expectations by providing the ultimate Arabian hospitality experience and we have no doubt that North Deck will do just that.

'We are hugely excited about its arrival - North Deck is a true reflection of Dubai's own ambition to provide the most outstanding experience for guests visiting and living in Dubai.'

Robert Swade, Jumeirah Group Chief Operating Officer: 'Dubai is renowned for providing exceptional experiences.

'This is the first time a structure of this nature and size has been built in one country and then transported to another country to be assembled and operated.

'We are really pushing the boundaries of innovation and demonstrating how committed we are to positioning Dubai as the most exciting destination in the world and Burj Al Arab Jumeirah as the finest provider of luxury experiences.'
