Sunset Over The Palm Jumeirah

Sergey Dolya • 4 minutes read • March 31st, 2016

I had a chance to climb to the helipad of the 

Burj Al Arab

and take several pictures of the sunset over the Palm Jumeirah - the famous group of artificial islands in 


. I am very pleased with the result and I wanted to share it with you.

Since I stayed in the other hotel, I had to reach the Burj Al Arab in advance. Fortunately, if Jumeirah sends the transfer car it is, at minimum, a Rolls-Royce and at maximum a helicopter. On the way I even had time to take a nap:

The 27th floor of the Burj Al Arab is the highest floor, reached by elevator. There is a large restaurant and bar, and the helipad is above it:

I said that the 27th floor is the highest floor, however, that does not mean that the Sheiks walk on foot from the helipad to their penthouses. For this purpose there is a separate elevator running between them.
When we came, we were greeted by waiters. This evening, on the roof of the Burj Al Arab, a presentation of the Jumeirah™ Inside project was held. Notice how the curved elements of the Burj Al Arab's "sail" appear from the roof:

The platform is slightly raised above the roof:

It offers fantastic views. Below us is the 

Jumeirah Beach

Hotel and a marina with yachts. In the distance you can see the city and the Burj Khalifa:

Building on the coastline does not stop. Apparently, in a couple of years there will be a new hotel:

If you have a good lens, you can see the Burj Khalifa. It is evident that the building is two times higher than the rest:

To the right of the Burj Al Arab you can see the Madinat Jumeirah - a complex of two luxury hotels and Royal Villas, where I stayed during this trip:

This is Dubai Marina - one of the most luxurious marinas in the world:

Palm Jumeirah can be clearly seen from here: 

As a souvenir, you can take a photo with an Instaframe on the helipad:

After seeing the sun over the horizon, we descended into the presidential suite to test Jumeirah™ Inside. To do this the guests were given special tools and a gold iPad:

The effect of the "pseudo-3D-helmet" was quite realistic, although it was a simple box with an iPhone and lenses inside:

Several screenshots of the interface of Jumeirah™ Inside:
