Making Waves: The Jumeirah Beach Hotel


By: Five Star Alliance


Few hotels have a more iconic structure than the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, which is constructred to look like a single, massive breaking wave. The sprawling hotel is so built so that every room can feature a sea view, since its wide face is open to the ocean. With 618 rooms and suites, that's no mean architectural feat, and its large size means that guests always have great choices when it comes to dining and leisure. The Pavilion Sports & Leisure Center puts most other hotels to shame. You can enjoy watersports, a full-service spa, tennis, dive center, and even a climbing wall.  Five different fine dining experiences await your palate, so you'll have to stay at least a week to try them all. From Italian to Latin to Lebanese, each is a completely unique culinary treat. 

There are 19 beachside villas that have an extra degree of privacy. The hotel has a total of 550 Ocean View Rooms, 48 Ocean View Suites and 19 Villas.

Burj Al Arab Goes for the Gold iPad


By: K. Clare Johnson

 

Burj Al ArabThink a gold credit card is impressive? Not anymore. Burj Al Arab, the super-luxury hotel in Dubai, has introduced the latest status symbol for luxury travelers: The gold iPad.

 

Guest at Burj Al Arab often arrive one of the world’s largest chauffeur-driven fleets of Rolls Royce’s or by a dedicated helicopter transfer service. After check-in, the 24-karat iPad, which is worth approximately $10,000, is yours to play the world's most expensive game of Angry Birds on. Or, guests can use the virtual concierge program that comes loaded on the gadget to take advantage of the hotel's many bespoke services. The hotel introduced a similar amenity back in October 2012, with a 24-carat rose gold iPad that was designed as part of its Breast Cancer Awareness month program. 

 

Sadly, the iPad, much like a room key, has to be returned to the front desk upon check-out. Although you can purchase your own in the hotel's boutique, along with a gold iPad minii and a gold iPhone5.
