An overnight stay at Dubai's The Burj Al Arab will cost travelers more than anywhere else in the Middle East this late autumn. The luxury accommodation ranks as the number one most expensive on a recent survey from Luxury-Hotels.com.
A comparison of the Middle East's luxury hotels was undertaken by the survey. The hotels were then ranked on their price for the cheapest available double room this upcoming November. November 2016 was selected for comparative purposes because it typically represent the month during which the majority of Middle Eastern destinations reach their highest average hotel rates.
The Burj Al Arab, an iconic landmark in Dubai, tops the rankings at a minimum rate of $1928 per night. Rounding out the Top 3 are another Dubai hotel, the Al Maha, and Oman's Six Senses Zighy Bay beach resort. Overnight rates of $1776 and $1330 put them in the survey's number two and three slots respectively.
Six other hotels in Dubai and an Abu Dhabi resort wrap up the Top 10 list. Qatar reveals itself to be a Middle Eastern bargain in comparison to some of its neighbors. Its most expensive hotel, The Banana Island Resort in Doha, will set overnight guests back a more affordable $331 this November.
The following table shows the 10 most expensive hotels in the Middle East. The prices listed indicate the cheapest available rate for a double room during the period spanning November 1 to 30, 2016.
