Day 2: Your Palace Awaits May 06

Dubai is a modern and cosmopolitan Arabian city. Your palace awaits, if only you can make a decision. During the height of new construction, it seemed there was a new hotel springing up every week. Every major international hotel chain is represented here. Luxury accommodations are available from city to beach to desert. I always seek the upscale and the unusual in terms of location, architecture and ambience and therefore also in experience.

The most famous icon of the city is the 47-story Burj Al Arab built in the shape of a billowing sail on an Arabian dhow. This magnificent 7 star all-suite resort, set on its own island off Jumeirah Beach, has everything you could ask for in terms of accommodations, dining and entertainment. The “Tower of the Arabs” even has a helipad on its 28th floor rooftop.

It prides itself on the highly personalized service from the chauffeured Rolls Royce or helicopter transfer, to the discreet check-in, to the private reception desk on every floor to the fleet of well-trained butlers.

I’m sure the concierge will be happy to make a recommendation and a reservation for our dinner tonight.
