They don’t call it the world’s most luxurious hotel for nothin’ (45 Photos)

Considered to be the greatest hotel on the planet, The Burj Al Arab (otherwise known as the Sail Hotel) in Dubai is a wonder to behold.

      It's nice to see what can be built when we export all of our jobs.

  • Will Harding

    @26 Ski Dubai isn't at or in the Hotel….. Just sayin.

    • Sappercrg

      do you mean 25? That is the Dubai mall is it not? and the ski hill is by the restaurant court.

      • HEAT

        #25 looks like the West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada

        • Captnjack

          Glad i wasn't the only one who thought that haha. It does, too.

  • Gixxer

    I did the planning for some of the beams that hold that hotel together!!!

    • Holly Sands

      Don't work for WS Atkins do you? I used to work for them and they designed it. 🙂

    • guy

      well if nobody else will say it I will…thats awesome! I'm a Mech. Engr. student about to graduate so I can certainly appreciate that. Well done!

    The hotel is actually called the Burj Al Arab, or 'Arab Tower'. It's beautiful and does a fantastic brunch! Though pictures 26, 27 and 30 are not actually the hotel. Pictures 26 and 30 are of Ski Dubai, the largest indoor ski slope in the world.

    • Scottish

      Are you getting freaky with some dish soap? Or did you mean Dom?

      • miles

  • nappyp

    Just because something is expensive, it isnt luxurious. This place is tacky.

    • Bacchus

      I agree. No taste at all.

    • pete

      Yep. All money, no taste.

      • ale

        As a teacher once told me: opulence is not elegance.

    • ted

      only a persian would think it was cool.

    • kikiklas

      I'm not sure why but this place creeps me out.o.0:S

      • Ryno

        Doesn't look very comfortable either.

    • screwutoo

      I agree, this is really tacky and very over the top. I would be in something more humble that won't make sick. Complete waste of money.

    • eDubya72

      • Jim

  • The Biscuit

    • The Biscuit

  • Hayden Fulghum

  • Screw youSpivias

  • Anton

    Thats what arabic oil money will buy you

    • Dirty Dingus

      That's what America's insatiable need for oil will do.

  • Paula_

    Would trolls be allowed there?

    – just checking…

    • DaddyD

      Only to lick the toilet bowls clean.

      • Paula_

        Don't deminish that; the shit of the rich tastes a LOT better than poor peoples crap. You should give it a try. The rich eat higher quality food, and higher quality in equals higher quality out. I'm just saying…

        – with a side of tossing the salad, hmmm….

        • mikey

          You have to be a real human to stay there….

  • jonathan

    The number 25 is not of the hotel, its from a mall in dubai called Mercato…

  • stickystrings

    #27 What possible use is that mirror??? …wait… oh…. that's rude!

  • Ben Clisham

    Only one word comes to mind… "Quite…"

  • Fionn

    Anyone else thinks like it looks like a tacky motel that won the lotto and decided to go fuckin loopers?

    • Gia

      Though so too. At some point it jumps to a tasteless scale o too much.

  • Marcin Kranz

    #8 a lot of lost tennis balls

    • Bob

      It's actually a heli-pad this was a one-time publicity stunt.

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    thank god there are still countries rich enough to blow money on stuff like this. god bless capitalism!
    #10 #22

    • TitoRigatoni

      If this were a private residence it would be "blowing money". as a hotel, it's more like "making an investment".

  • buck naked

    Looks like Graceland's tacky aunt.

  • MAC

    I bet that place stinks of Curry…..

    • McRo

      The hotel is in Dubai, why would it smell like curry?

    • Sarah Laverne

      ummm, INDIANS eat curry you ass munch, not Arabs

  • Holly Sands

    I stayed there for a week a few years ago. Was amazing but damn, seeing how the other half live and going back to your life really is shite.

  • remerules

    Every pic I expected Goldfinger to come out saying, "No, Mr. Bond- I expect you to die…"

  • Dane

    Whatever.. I think still think it looks terribly tachy, in most places. Maybe it's just my danish design mentally, I dunno…

    • TitoRigatoni

      No, it's not just you. There's some hideous decorating going on here.
