Just in time for summer, the highly anticipated Burj Al Arab Terrace has finally opened… with a big party, of course.
We know what you’re thinking, how can a new section of Burj Al Arab be celebrating its new opening when this is the first you’ve heard of Burj Al Arab Terrace? Well, let us explain. The Terrace was formerly called the North Deck, a world-first leisure island we told you about back in January.
Set in the stunning Arabian Gulf, the Burj Al Arab Terrace finally launched last night (see party party pics below).
Located at the base of the world’s only seven-star hotel, the terrace is a remarkable combo of sleek restaurant (Scape Restaurant & Bar headed by chef Timur Fazilov, serving Californian fusion style dishes), and glam pool and beach space (it’s home to home to two stunning pools, with dedicated butler-serviced cabanas), “offering hotel guests and Burj Al Arab members the finest Arabian hospitality”.
The design reflects the shape of the hotel, and the two are linked by a central walkway, flanked on either side by crystalline beaches and private cabanas. There are 32 fully air-conditioned cabanas in total, all overlooking Dubai’s iconic skyline.
There are 24 normal cabanas and eight Royal Cabanas, which can accommodate up to four guests, offering unrivalled poolside facilities – a dedicated butler service, a dining, beverage and bar menu, spa menu, fully stocked mini-bars, fresh fruits, espresso machines, Bang & Olufsen TVs and a rotating amenity cycle. The eight Royal Cabanas also include a private bathroom, shower area and veranda.
The two pools comprise of a 612m2 freshwater pool and an 828m2 saltwater infinity pool, best of all set within the pools are four Jacuzzis and a swim-up bar.
The luxurious leisure facility covers 10,000m2 and stretches 100m out into the sea. As well as being a new glam hot spot, the Burj Al Arab Terrace is also a pretty amazing architectural feat. It was developed by marine construction experts ADMARES at a shipyard site in Finland, then transported by ship to Dubai in eight pieces, ensuring minimal disruption to guests, as well as the seabed and marine life.
Membership at Burj Al Arab Terrace starts from Dhs100,000 a year.
