Dubai’s only 7-star hotel is set for a massive refurb in summer 2019

Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab is one of the most instantly recognisable hotels on the planet, and while many would say that Dubai’s only 7-star resort is perfect just the way it is, it appears that a major revamp may be on the cards.

Speaking to Arabian Business, Jumeriah CEO Jose Silva revealed that the sail-shaped hotel will begin renovations “probably in summer 2019”.

This would see the Burj Al Arab follow in the footsteps of neighbouring Jumeirah property Jumeirah Beach Hotel which is currently undergoing massive renovations over the summer and expected to open its doors again in October.

Nothing else was announced regarding how the renovations might impact the look and feel of the iconic hotel, but if the current decor of the building is anything to go by, we expect the new look to be just as epic.
