Ever since The Telegraph filed a report two days ago about the Burj Al Arab’s latest gilded amenity, the blogosphere (and Twitterverse) have been buzzing about the over-the-top Dubai hotel. What exactly is making the headlines? Guests are now privy to a gold-plated iPad upon check-in, worth a cool $10,000.
Designed by Gold & Co, the iPads are loaded with software that provides info on the hotel’s services, like private dining experiences and personal butlers. Needless to say, the 24-carat, luxury accessories must be returned at check-out. To quote The Telegraph: “The hotel said it had introduced the gold iPad… as a way of making itself stand out from its competitors.” For more information on the self-proclaimed seven-star hotel, visit www.jumeirah.com/en/hotels-resorts/dubai/burj-al-arab.
