The Burj al Arab hotel - said to be the finest hotel in Dubai - has unveiled its newest luxury amenity – 24-carat gold iPads. The new tablets will be available to all guests staying at the ”world’s only 7-star hotel.”
The gold-coated iPads, which are embossed with the hotel’s logo, were created by British-based Company Gold & Co. "The 24-carat gold plated iPad is the ultimate in luxury accessories so it's only natural that we wanted it to be paired with Burj Al Arab, the world's finest hotel," said Amjad Ali, the company’s CEO. "The symmetry is obvious: Both the gold plated iPad and the hotel are unique in terms of quality, mystique and dare we say: decadence.”
The hotel, which is renowned for its pricey, opulent suites and A-list guests, has introduced the golden iPads to serve as a “virtual concierge” to guests. "Our exclusive Burj Al Arab 24-carat gold iPads epitomise Jumeirah’s philosophy of 'stay different' and further enhance our guests’ experience during their stay," said Heinrich Morio, Burj Al Arab’s general manager.
This is not the first Apple product the hotel offers to its guests, with each of its 202 rooms already decked out with the lastest iMacs. Other luxurys guests can enjoy during their stay at the luxury hotel include walk-in showers, private Jacuzzis, large plasma TVs and private butler services.
However, those that fancy a go on the gold-plated iPads will have to pay a price, with the starting rate for a double room at $1500 per night going all the way up to $19,200 per night for the Royal Suite.
