    Burj Al Arab

    The Burj Al Arab is a luxury hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates managed by the Jumeirah Group and built by Said Khalil.
    It was designed by Tom Wright of WS Atkins PLC.
    At 321 metres (1,053 ft), it is the tallest building used exclusively as a hotel.
    However, the Rose Tower, also in Dubai, which has already topped Burj Al Arab's height, will take away this title upon its opening in April 2008.
    The Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 metres (919 ft) out from Jumeirah beach, and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge.
    It is an iconic structure, designed to symbolize Dubai's urban transformation and to mimic the sail of a boat.

    I must agree that this is one of the greatest hotels in the world. I am lucky enough to be traveling there later this summer to see the ATP tennis tournament that they host every year atop the hotel.

    One more fact about it is that the hotel is over loose soil of dubai . that makes it as great engineering marvel.
