Hotel gives guests gold plated Apple iPad to use during stay
24K gold plated 16GB third-generation Apple iPad so that you can enjoy virtual concierge-like experience at the self-rated seven star hotel. The tablet provides guests with information about the restaurants and events at the Burj-Al-Arab as well as the regular service provided by the place. Guests are not able to access regular iPad features because of the special software used, so you should still bring your own tablet if you plan on staying.
By the way, the gold plated iPad is not like the robe, towels and soap. You cannot just shove it into your suitcase and take it home. From what we can see about the iPad, it comes engraved with the hotel logo (which contrary to rumors is NOT the Monopoly man) along with the Apple logo in black. If you need to take one home, the hotel boutique offers a gold plated 64GB third-generation Apple iPad for $10,200 along with gold plated versions of the Apple iPad mini, Apple iPhone 5 and BlackBerry Q10.
Before you start pulling out your charge card to make a reservation, we should tell you that suites at the hotel start at $15,100 a night. Too pricey? Regular rooms are priced at $1525 daily.
