The Burj Al Arab is a luxury hotel situated in the heart of Dubai in United Arab Emirates. It has been eyed by travelers all over the world because of the world-class art of excellence the hotel has to offer. With all the karats of gold engraved inside the hotel, travelers who get the chance of staying in Burj Al Arab have definitely lived the dream for once in their lives. But before you indulge into this gold-craze, here are some of the interesting facts about the Burj that you probably do not know.

1. Burj Al Arab is approximately 321 meters in height whose exterior is made of glass. And in order to clean all the windows of the Burj Al Arab, it will take one full month and 19 men, aside from the team assigned solely for the rope access.

2. A night of stay in the Burj Al Arab costs from $1,000 to more than $15,000, making it one of the most expensive luxury hotels in the world. The hotel's Royal Suite which has its own library, lounge, cinema room, two master bedrooms with full-size jacuzzis and five-head rain showers cost $28,000 per night.

3. Aside from being one of the most expensive hotels in the world, the Burj Al Arab also holds the record of being one of the most expensively constructed buildings elsewhere. According to Professor Pen Court, the construction of the Burj Al Arab reached a total of $650 million.

4. Burj Al Arab also has the record for the highest staff to suite ratio in the world.
