    A luxury hotel in Dubia is giving gold-plated iPads to guests.

    When Dubai’s Burj Al Arab hotel bills itself as the world’s most luxurious, they’re not kidding around.

    Recently, they’ve started handing out iPads made with real gold for their guests to use to order up services and information.

    The gilded tablets were made especially for the hotel and are inscribed with their logo.

    Burj Al Arab’s General Manager said the devices are in-line with both the hotel’s “stay different” ethos and its commitment to offering technological conveniences to its guests.

    It’s not the first time a glitzy iPad has shown up there. A rose gold one was commissioned from Gold & Co. London as part of the hotel’s campaign in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

    Exactly what types of services warrant the use of such an extravagant gadget?

    Well, they have the regular ones like housekeeping, room service, and spa options.

    They also offer Rolls Royce, BMW, and helicopter rides to and from the airport.

    In-room amenities include a butler-prepared aromatherapy bath and a pillow menu, which offers 13 pillow and quilt options.
