Luxury Dubai hotel introduces golden iPads for all its guests
Welcome to the Burj al-Arab hotel in Dubai – one of the most luxurious places you can find in the whole wide world. It was designed by Khuan Chew and it stylishly combines lush Occidental and Oriental architecture. 8.000 square meters of the hotel are covered in golden foil so you can probably see that this is an extremely fancy place.
At the Burj al-Arab, guests can eat the finest dishes, relax in huge luxury suites and even have a butler following them around during the stay, fulfilling their every need. However, in order to spice things up for their guests, the hotel management introduced a new idea. Each guest checking in will be awarded a golden plated iPad when arriving at the hotel. The high end device is a 24-carat gold plated tablet provided by Gold & Co.
The iPad basically acts as a hotel guide, which is very useful indeed, since the establishment is quite massive. The tablet will keep guests up to speed regarding restaurants, spa services and basically finding things around in the hotel. The golden iPad costs no less than £6,715 ( around $10139) and guests must return it upon departure.
Every suite at the Burj al-Arab has an iMac, as well, proving that the hotel management is a very big fan of Apple products, apparently. Maybe more will start popping in soon. The Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai is the only 7 star hotel in the world, even if officially it is tagged as a 5 star deluxe one.
