I Don't Do Postcards a/k/a/ Burj Al Arab - #41


It's all Natalie's fault. A Postcard From Sydney

The Burj Al Arab. The world's only "7 star hotel". Every room comes with a personal 24 hour butler. The atrium is the highest in the world. Each room is a duplex. The cheapest room is approx US$1,000 per night.

Famous for many things, including Agassi and Federer playing a game on the helipad.


(not a Bluey shot of course)

It looks pretty at sunset and after dark with the light display...

You did well Bluey, you did well.

A postcard shot from time to time doesn't kill. Especially when each of them is, like yours Nathalie and Bluey, a view to a kill ;-)

Beautiful photo - just want to say the Burj is not a 7 star hotel. It is a five star - they have a plaque on the wall inside the lobby indicating a 5 star, and as well, I just recently listened to a radio interview here in Canada with a manager at the Burj Al Arab and she indicated that the 7-star is a myth and wasn't sure where it started.

I just returned to Canada from a visit to Dubai and your photos keep me connected!!

Apparently, so my husband informs me, you're a 7-star if you have a heli-pad!
Yeah? What do you think?
Gorgeous shot of this beautiful building ... there is an under-sea restaurant, but I've never been; my students told me about it!
