Dubai’s most iconic hotel, Burj Al Arab, has officially unveiled their highly anticipated Terrace. Set in the beautiful azure waters of the Arabian Gulf, this exciting addition will feature a one-of-a-kind restaurant, pools, beach and cabana space.
The Burj Al Arab Terrace was developed by marine construction experts ADMARES at a shipyard site in Finland, and delivered to Dubai by ship in eight pieces. This shipment method ensured minimal disruption to guests, marine life and the gulf’s seabed.
The private 10,000m2 luxury outdoor facility features two gorgeous pools, dedicated butler-serviced cabanas, the Scape Restaurant & Bar, and a beach area with luxury day and sun beds.
Dubai is known for their record-breaking skyscrapers and luxurious service, so it’s no wonder the world’s luxurious hotel gets such an addition. Anthony McHale, General Manager at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah adds:
“Burj Al Arab continuously evolves and re-invents our guest experience through state-of-the-art facilities. Burj Al Arab Terrace is the ultimate destination for indulgence, socialising and relaxing and is another initiative in our endeavour to delight our guests.”
McHale comments further on the design and scale, saying:
“Burj Al Arab Terrace is our most ambitious project since the hotel was created; it’s a global first in hotel construction with a breakthough combination of creative marine design, ingenious engineering and guest-friendly planning. In January, we announced its arrival on a ship from Finland and, since then, our construction and design teams have brought our vision to life and the result is simply spectacular.”
Burj Al Arab Terrace’s Design
The architectural form of the terrace has been designed to reflect the shape of Burj Al Arab, creating a fusion of sophisticated, contemporary structures and tranquil stretches of water. Linked by a central walkway, flanked on either side by crystalline beaches and private cabanas, it gives an effect of a stylised tropical forest canopy, with contrasting areas of dappled light and shade.
Burj Al Arab Terrace includes a 612m2 freshwater pool and an 828m2 saltwater infinity pool, which blends seamlessly into the horizon to create the mirage of a continuous ebb of water. Placed inside the pools is a swim up bar and four jacuzzis, lined with 10 million mosaic tiles in shades of azure and gold.
Scape Restaurant and Bar
For unrivaled views of the Arabian Gulf, dine at Scrape Restaurant & Bar. Head chef Timur Fazilov has developed a surprising menu of Californian fusion style dishes that guests can enjoy in the beautiful alfresco venue. After your meal, head to the outdoor bar where you can try a creative selection of cocktails inspired from places all around the world.
