Jumeirah Group looking at mini Indian Burj Al Arab
Farmhouse replica has reportedly been built in Punjab
Dubai’s Jumeirah Group may take legal action against a homeowner in India who has built a miniature replica of the Burj Al Arab hotel without first seeking permission from the luxury hotelier, who owns the copyright to the landmark’s design.
Images of the farmhouse, which is a scaled down version of the Dubai hotel, were circulated on social media sites in recent weeks.
The building is believed to have been built a number of years ago and is reportedly located in Punjab in northwest India.
Jumeirah Group, which opened the 280 metre tall landmark hotel on a manmade island off the coast of Dubai in 1999, owns complete copyright of the building’s design.
