    I'm glad you posted that in the sensitive thread section. I don't think I've ever read such a dirty post. :D

    Not too shabby ;) How many 6 star hotels are there? I thought the best hotel was that one in Geneva, or maybe thats just the most expensive (has the most expensive suite shall I say).

    In the first picture that other building near it is a top quality hotel as well isn't it?

    This 7 star hotel reminds me of the spinnaker tower in portsmouth.

    Yeh, very thoughtful of you to put it in the sensitive section.

    It is very offensive.

    I've got to see it (although not stay in it :( ) on a business trip to Dubai. Fantastic place - as it's on an island off the beach there is a bridge to get across to it with guards on to stop the 'poor' people like me getting across.

    It may well be a ******* hotel but doesn't the interior just look so damned tacky? They've gone overboard with the tackiness, and it is all just to LOUD:eek:

    Well, putting stuff in General Chat, its hard to know what is 'fun' or 'serious' to look at,
    therefore i am asking for a 'fun' / jokes sticky, where we can put post fun stuff. And then we can put the more offensive posts in the 'senstive threads' folder, would do you think?.

    I never look through all the General Chat, as most of it rather downbeat, so could be missing out on fun stuff.

    Yeh, tbh thats quite a good idea. Maybe Stuart and the mods should consider that? As a sub-board, off General Chat. like the Sensitive one.

    raigraphixs, where abouts in Kent are you from?

    Course it's not an official 7 star as there is no 7 star category hence the hotels claim it's the only one. The marketing guy for the hotel was earning his money the day he came up with that idea.

    I stayed there soon after it opened around 5 years ago...
    In those days it was around £300 a night so what the Hell - I was living in the UAE at the time, anyway.

    Tacksville, UAE ! So grossly OTT.

    The 'undersea' restaurant was fun - you have a 3 minute simulated submarine ride to get to there ! There are huge tanks of fish all 'round the restaurant, though as it had only recently opened there weren't many fish in residence at the time... !

    Just don't go knicking any towels or bath robes unless you want to be called stumpy for the rest of your life.

    Our friends Parents went there for a few nights stay, I am pretty sure their bill was somewhere over £20,000 :eek:

    That's why this is obscene!

    My cousins fiance had his stag night there and paid for 30 people/couples to fly over and spend a long weekend all expenses paid.

    It is very OTT but exceptionally nice at the same time. Dread to think what their bill was for it
