Fantastic afternoon tea we stayed for 3 hours, stunning views and impeccable service. As a very fussy vegetarian the food was specially made for me and was amazing. It was well worth the cost and we also received a special anniversary cake and red rose

Did the 27th floor drinks package only. Highly recommend it. Have to spend min approx Aus$100 p.p. on drinks/food. So easy to do and a great experience.

To avoid let downs you need for sure to make a reservation at one of the restaurants or bars. The experience is extravagant and expensive but you must visit at least once in a life time. Very uplifting, romantic, and great design. It was build as a unique structure to astonish experts. All in all, Dubai visitors must see it.

My agent booked us a buffet lunch. Turn out to be a Chinese restaurant full of Chinese tourists. The food is not worth the USD150 each, our agent charged us. The "7" star hotel don't seems anything close to it judging from the lobby unless the "gold" decorates and trimmings are, 7 carats?

Why are people rating this a 1 star just because they haven't made a reservation? If you haven't been in how can you rate it? Anyway....... We went here after a recommendation from friends living in Dubai and we were not disappointed. We booked the afternoon slot and arrived early, which meant we had a window seat over looking the...

We worked at this hotel as part of the pre-opening team and returned back to Dubai after almost 13 years to show our children the place. We visited the hotel and dined at the Bab-al-Yam restaurant by the poolside. The food was amazing - both in taste and in selection available. The restaurant staff were also great and looked us...

Went for our 10 year anniversary and experienced the culinary flight. Not cheap, but it was awesome. One of those once in a lifetime things that, if you can make it work, you simply have to do!

Its very hard to beat this hotel. many of the 5 stars hotels do not stand a chance to compete with this hotel. the faultless service and the extra special touches, this hotel is incredible. The location is just perfect.
