The luxury Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, instantly recognizable for its sail-like silhouette, has launched new services that will spoil your kids rotten with a personal butler who will deliver candies and bonbons from a Sweet Train on command, and gold-plated iPads for silver-spoon kids.

The new features go beyond the standard children's menus and are meant to keep kids -- and parents -- happy.

Other services include bespoke beds, matching parent-child robes and slippers, in-suite PlayStations and 24-carat iPads.

Child-friendly excursions are likewise available with itineraries that include visits to the Jumeirah Group's Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project and the Wild Wadi Waterpark.

The hotel will also supply parents with amenities like air sterilizers, baby monitors and a toy library.

The Burj Al Arab is the latest luxury hotel to take into account the needs of its smallest guests -- likely because a happy child translates into a happy parent.

The Plaza Hotel in New York, for instance, hosts elegant tea parties, pajama and birthday parties for young guests in a bubble gum-pink room themed after the children's book character Eloise.

The Ritz-Carlton Chicago invites kids into the hotel kitchens every afternoon where they can bake sugar cookies with the chef, while a Candy Man rolls past hotel rooms every day with a travel cart stocked with sweets and candies.
