Burj Al Arab Unveils New Aquarium

Dubai’s luxurious hotel Burj Al Arab has unveiled its fully transformed aquarium, with an innovative décor and newly introduced exotic species of fish. The recently re-opened aquarium also boasts some of the most technically advanced underwater lighting, new artificial coral reefs and improved filtration systems.

Going beyond the standards usually found in commercial aquariums, Burj Al Arab has its own aquatic quarantine facilities, ensuring the fish were kept in a perfect condition during the three-month refurbishment. 

“We take extreme pride in nurturing our fish and providing them with as natural an environment as possible,” said Warren Baverstock, Burj Al Arab’s Aquarium Operations Manager. “No live coral was used in the tank and the habitat was created to imitate natural coral reefs.”

An ideal undersea habitat for over 4,000 fish, such as Zebra and Bamboo sharks, Clown Fish, as well as Yellow and Blue Tang, was created by Pangea Rocks in collaboration with the aquarists’ team. Burj Al Arab has three aquariums: two are located on either side of the hotel lobby and one is inside Burj Al Arab’s award-winning seafood restaurant, Al Mahara.
