The Worlds Tallest & Most Expensive water fountain can be found in Dubai. The water fountain was built by WET Design and cost $217 million. The 900-foot water show uses 6,600 lights, 50 colored projectors, and is all computer controlled and synchronized with music to offer some of the most sophisticated water entertainment.
Tiger Woods is switching up the roles, instead of him devouring his opponents on the golf courses, he’s been called on to design a golf course.
The Golf Course is being built in Dubai, on a 13 million-square-foot lot, which features a luxury boutique hotel, a Guy Savoy restaurant and upscale shopping, will all be apart of a massive amusement park, called Duabiland, which will be built on the edge of the desert the Persian Gulf.
Tiger has been working on this project about a year-and-a-half and recently unveiled the master plan for the course and while releasing some information about the schedule it was under.
“Tiger Woods’ name brings enormous value to the project, and we are proud to share with him some of the key developments that have taken place since he reviewed the project during his last visit,” said project director Abdulla Al Gurg.
The project is estimated to cost nearly $1.1 billion, and press reports estimate Tiger might have been paid $20 million to design the immense golf course. The golf course will be filled with 197 mansions,villas, and palaces which will border the entire golf course. A limited amount of memberships, will be going to only 200 high profile people, giving them priority to the residents of the community. The 139,000 square-foot clubhouse will feature a luxury spa and golf academy.
The first phase of the project will be the landscaping of the golf course, followed by building phase for hotel and residential community in the second and third quarters of next year.
The Emirates Palace hotel is defiantly a one of the few places that I can say you’ll be treated like royalty. The hotel in Abu Dhabi is offering a $1 million, week-long stay which it claims is the world’s most expensive holiday package. The Palace Suite includes first-class airline tickets, a chauffeur-driven Maybach for the week, a personal butler, daily spa treatments, and day trips via private jet.
The offer is being made as an attempt to earn the hotel a slot in the Guinness Book of World Records, and part of the proceeds will be donated to charities in the U.A.E. Rumor has it, that it cost 3.2 Billion to make the palace.
