Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Hotel to Undergo Lavish Expansion

By Paul Joseph

Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab hotel is to be given an extra touch of luxury with expansion plans that include a new ocean deck stretching into the sea.

Called the North Deck, the outdoor space measures around 10,000 square metres and extends 100 metres into the ocean.

The deck was made in Finland and is currently en route to Dubai. Once complete, it will boast 32 beach cabanas, 400 sun-loungers, a fresh water pool, and salt water pool, a restaurant and a bar.

“Dubai is renowned for providing exceptional experiences,” says Robert Swade, Jumeirah Group’s Chief Operating Officer. “This is the first time a structure of this nature and size has been built in one country and then transported to another country to be assembled and operated.

“We are really pushing the boundaries of innovation and demonstrating how committed we are to positioning Dubai as the most exciting destination in the world and Burj Al Arab Jumeirah as the finest provider of luxury experiences.”

Located on an artificial island near Jumeirah beach, the Burj Al Arab hotel is the third tallest hotel in the world.
