  • I had booked the meal as part of our honeymoon & my birthday celebrations and had very high hopes from it considering the reputation of the hotel. As a self proclaimed foodie I am disappointed to say ...  more »
  • We have the Burj al Arab times allowed. After we have got in the strictly screened-off area of the hotel, we received from a very prestigious and opulent hotel lobby. They were annoying cell phone of vibrating Asians, who all photographed and how moths was abuzz with the hotel. The check in was in the room and the view from the upper floors was phenomenal. The equipment was perfect, but put simply too thick for our tastes. This is likely the Arab guests. The suites have a living room with a small bathroom and above below a huge bedroom with a bathroom. Also in the bathroom of all slightly too much. Here, not messy with gold, but bigger. The "Butler" on each floor just takes care of everything and is very friendly and always ready. The new pool area is very nice and modern and offers everything except for an access to the sea. Great hotel and a true landmark, but just not to our taste. We ate but excellent and can certainly recommend the total package.

  • Was a nice experience to see such a luxury hotel. Good for sightseeing. We have a company event here, however the catering was not as good as expected. But all and all it was a nice experience. The staff is super professional and helpful.
  • Simply stated, it's one of the best hotels in the world. The rooms are exquisite. You have two stories to explore with windows that run from the floor to the ceiling. It's the ultimate in luxury. It tends to be in the opulent side, so prepare for gold covering everything in the room. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz
  • Amazing atmosphere. The hotel is perfect from inside and out. With perfect restaurant and view... extravagance at its best! Super luxurious, super fancy 7 star hotel... and it’s structure with exotic attraction...
  • Beautiful property with amazing rooms. The food at the two restaurants we went to was outstanding, and the service was phenomenal at both. Staff are genuinely kind and helpful in the restaurants as well as the helpful butlers stationed on each floor. The water fountains and aquariums in the lobby are beautiful to watch. Stay for a while at the giant center water extravaganza next to the escalators and watch the show!
  • Amazing It is a heaven. Its like a heaven on earth made by the prince really it is a great place to visit once in a lifetime.God give the ability to visit the Burj Al Arab in my life once.Thank you all of you Local guides for helping other people's really it's a. Great job.
