Since its opening in 1999, Burj Al Arab has been an iconic landmark of Dubai. It used to be the tallest hotel in the world and still, it is the 7th tallest hotel in the world. It is located at Jumeirah Beach and is owned by the Jumeirah Group which is the part of Dubai Holding.

The beautiful hotel is marketed as the “Worlds First 7 Star Hotel”. That helped to put Dubai on the world map as the best tourist attraction in the world. And now Dubai is a dream destination for the holidaymakers from all over the world.

Jose Silva, CEO of Jumeirah Group, said at the ceremony: “It is incredible to see the international reputation that Burj Al Arab has gained over the years, making it one of the most recognised and Instagrammed hotels in the world. Burj Al Arab is a testament to Dubai’s ability to innovate, surpass expectations and push boundaries. We are honoured to be a part of the Burj Al Arab’s story, and to have witnessed the hotel’s continued ability to encompass unmatched design, unparalleled service and facilities and globally recognised gastronomic experiences for our guests”.
