Have been there for an afternoon tea at the Skyview Bar. Food and service were excellent. On this day, we actually skipped lunch to wait for this, and it was actually a good choice we made. Price makes it a one in a lifetime experience - but after all, I do not regret paying the price, as we had an... More

This was my second time having tea at the Burj Al Arab and the Skyview bar was fully booked so we made reservations for the lounge by the fountains.....the experience was dialed down a bit but the ambience was still very lovely,the live music was great and the delicacies were amazing.

The culinary flight is EXTREMELY expensive, but I'd say it was pretty cool. Choose the lunch time one, not the dinner one because you can't see anything at night anyways. Also, you feel much better feeling stuffed for lunch than for dinner. (Only had one meal that day). We started out in their underwater restaurant and had our appetizer there.... More

Ridiculously priced out of the range off all but the wealthiest. It sits on its own island. There is no doubt it is one of the most unique hotels in Dubai.

This building is amazing, as with most in Dubai. Even the beach diretly outside is amazing. Even though most visitors could not afford to stay here, (meself included), it is still pretty cool to see.

With the limited time available, there was not much that I couls see except from out side. But it presents a great sight in the evening against the backdrop of the evening twilight. Plenty of people who are clicking away as it is indeed a famous site . It is always better to have a guide who can tell you... More
