Famously known as the world’s only 7-star hotel, the architectural marvel was designed to reflect the iconic nature of the city under the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The interiors of the hotel spell grandeur in every nook and corner. The hallways are decked in 24-karat gold while the foyer will leave you surprised (or should we say shock!)

Furthermore, the hotel also boasts a lavish bar on the 27th floor- Gold On 27 and this one’s every bit true to its name! You’ve got to see it to believe it!

The opulent hotel has 200 Suites offering breathtaking views of the city and more than 120 butlers delivering impeccable service. There’s also a luxurious spa, that will transport you to another world altogether.

Well, with all the goodness and luxury packed inside one tower, we’re not surprised it has wowed the world!

What Else?

While this is undoubtedly one of the architectural wonders in the city, there’s more. Here are other structures in the city that grab attention!

1. Burj Khalifa

Think Dubai and this is one of the first things that will crop up on the list of places to visit in Dubai. The world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa has its home in Dubai. The tower peaks at a height of 829.8 m (2,722 ft) and took six years to be completed. That’s not all! Apart from marveling at the wonder, you can also dine in one of the finest restaurants or unwind at a luxury spa inside the tower. In fact, Burj is also home to the world’s highest lounge- The lounge. Seated on the 152nd floor, the lounge offers uninhibited views along with a delectable selection of delicacies.
