Burj Al Arab Reveals Upcoming Private Deck Extension

Dubai’s Burj Al Arab has revealed details of an expansive outdoor private deck to be added this summer to its existing facilities line-up. The North Deck is currently being shipped from Europe to the Middle East where it is due to arrive in mid-February, following its construction in Finland by marine construction experts Admares.

 

Scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2016, the deck will add another 10,000 square meters to the luxury hotel’s footprint and extend 100 meters into the Arabian Gulf. Providing resort facilities, it will accommodate 32 cabanas, 400 sun loungers, 2 swimming pools (freshwater and saltwater), as well as a restaurant and bar.

 

Entry to the North Deck will be exclusive to guests of the Burj al Arab, who at present have to utilize the dedicated beach near the adjacent Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

 

In preparation for its arrival in Dubai, a grid of 90 steel piles have been placed into the sea bed. The 6 sections (weighing approximately 5,000 tons) will be lifted by crane onto the foundations. The hotel’s operator Jumeirah claims that its design will provide shade for fish and attract undersea ecosystems to cluster around steel piles.

 

Built in 1999, the Burj al Arab made headlines for its bold architectural style reminiscent of the billowing main sail of a traditional Arabian dhow and all-suite accommodations boasting opulent interiors.
