It’s no coincidence that Dubai is called the 'City of Gold'—the glitzy city literally rises above the golden desert and only a few places can compare to its over-the-top splendour. A gleaming example is the Burj Al Arab, the iconic hotel that's dubbed “the world’s only seven-star hotel." Gold has always been a recurring theme of the hotel—think 24-carat gold iPads, a bar bedecked in gold leaf—and it’s now taking Arabian luxury to another level with the Ultimate Gold Cappuccino.

Served at the Sahn Eddar Lounge, the drink is made with 100% Arabica beans and foamed milk that’s blended with 24-carat gold, then sprinkled with Italian gold flakes and adorned with the Burj Al Arab design.

The indulgent treat also comes with a Grand Cru Guanaja—a perfectly formed chocolate marshmallow sprinkled with mill-grinded gold. The set-up is nothing less than grandeur with a customised set of fine-bone china with a gold finish, serving up an extravagant coffee experience like no other.
