Standing on a triangular man-made island with its distinctive sail-shaped silhouette, it has become an iconic symbol and statement of modern Dubai, similar to Paris’s Eiffel Tower or London’s Big Ben. Often voted the world’s most luxurious hotel and known as “the world’s only seven-star hotel”, it is actually the third tallest hotel in the world. Normally not accessible to the public, your waterfront view will mean you will have the best point of view for the ultimate selfie or Instagram post, perfectly framed. Perhaps you will capture a glimpse of a helicopter landing on its roof-top helipad or a celebrity sunning themselves on the terrace of the exclusive resort beach club.
View one of the two identical private islands built in the shape of a palm leaf sit beside the trunk of the incredible Palm Jumeirah. Occasionally, home to the Ruler of Dubai’s US$400 million 524 foot private yacht named Dubai, the lush tropical island marks the end of an incredible stretch of Dubai coastline, lined with mansions and Royal Palaces.
Originally built as the Eighth Wonder of the World, cruise along the northern side of this artificial archipelago situated in the emerald waters of the Arabian Gulf.

Your guide will reveal its secrets, anecdotes, and stories about what it took to build this stunning creation.
The lavish marine-themed resort is the iconic crown jewel of The Palm Jumeirah and combines luxury with a whole host of unique attractions that live up to its myth.
