Dubai: 23 May 2017: Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, the world’s most luxurious hotel, has once again been voted ‘Best Hotel in the World’ and ‘Best Hotel in the Middle East’ at The Telegraph’s ULTRA awards in London.
This is the fifth time in a row the property has been awarded the ‘Best Hotel in the World’ title and the eleventh year in a row it has been named ‘Best Hotel in the Middle East.’
Every year the readers of Ultratravel, The Telegraph’s luxury travel magazine, are invited to vote for their favourite operators, airlines, hotels and destinations – to provide the industry with news of what’s hot in the world of luxury travel.
Margaret Paul, General Manager, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, said: “We are extremely proud to have been recognised with the ULTRAs by the UK’s most affluent and experienced travellers. We are constantly striving to exceed our guests’ expectations and our latest openings which include – The Terrace, Scape Restaurant and Bar, Gold on 27 and Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara - are prime examples. The ULTRAs are fantastic recognition that will inspire the team to keep delivering exception experiences for our guests in 2017 and beyond.”
The addition of The Terrace, a new luxury leisure facility, has brought about a new persona for Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. This remarkable, one-of-a-kind restaurant, pool, beach and cabana space, offers hotel guests and Burj Al Arab members the finest in Arabian hospitality.
The hotel’s latest dining and entertainment venues include Scape Restaurant and Bar, a vibrant and chic venue serving Californian fusion cuisine, perched on Burj Al Arab Terrace. Gold On 27, which offers views across Dubai from the 27th floor; and Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara, for simple, yet superb seafood.
