Burj Al Arab, the World’s Most Luxurious Hotel, has been voted the Best Hotel in the World and Best Hotel in the Middle East in the Daily Telegraph’s esteemed annual Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards (ULTRAs) Reader Survey.
This is the second year Burj Al Arab has been awarded the ‘Best Hotel in the World’ title, a new category added to the Awards in 2013, and the eighth year for the property to win the ‘Best Hotel in the Middle East’.


The announcement was made last night at the ULTRA Award Ceremony held in London.
