Burj Al Arab Terrace has been developed using state-of-the-art environmental technology, design, manufacturing expertise and marine installation mastery, a combination which has never before been attempted. The 10,000 square metres private luxury terrace fans 100 metres out into the Arabian Gulf and accommodates 32 cabanas, 400 sun loungers, one fresh water pool measuring 612 square metres and one salt water pool measuring 828 square metres as well as Scape Restaurant & Bar.
In a bid to deliver the most exclusive guest experience with minimal disruption, the terrace has been developed in six sections off-site in Finland by marine construction experts, ADMARES. The structure has been built in a controlled cruise ship and yacht production facility which guarantees the highest standards in both construction and luxury finish. The six sections were then transported to Dubai by ship, lifted by crane and lowered onto a grid of steel piles, stretching from the hotel out into the Arabian Gulf. The process caused minimal disruption to hotel guests, as well as the ocean environment, with the terrace even providing an artificial reef and shade for marine life.
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, pervades throughout.
The saltwater infinity pool melts into the horizon to create the mirage of a continuous ebb of water. An incredible 10 million mosaic tiles in shades of azure and gold line the pools, while 1,000 tonnes of white sand creates the dazzling beach.
The terrace is accessible to all staying guests of Burj Al Arab.
Scape Restaurant & Bar accepts reservations from external guests as well.
