The Burj Al Arab has been ranked as the most expensive luxury hotel in the Middle East, according to a recent survey conducted by Luxury-Hotels.com.
In determining the rankings, the survey compared all luxury hotels in the Middle East region based on their cheapest available rate for a double room. The month of November 2016 served as the basis of comparison.
In fact, November is the month when most Middle Eastern destinations reach their highest average hotel rates.
At a minimum nightly rate of Dh7,081 ($1,928), the Burj Al Arab, one of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks, leads the ranking. Runners-up include Al Maha desert resort, also located in Dubai, and the Six Senses Zighy Bay beach resort in Oman. At minimum nightly rates of Dh6,523 ($1,776) and Dh4,885 ($1,330), respectively, they take the second and third spots on the survey.
Another six hotels in Dubai and one resort in Abu Dhabi complete the Top 10. At a minimum overnight rate of Dh2,020 ($550), the King David is Jerusalem’s most expensive hotel. Significantly more affordable is Qatar’s priciest hotel, The Banana Island Resort in Doha. There, guests can find a room from Dh1,215 ($331) this November.
