A total disappointment! We were looking forward to an excellent and unique experience but were truly disappointed. A prior request for a window table was ignored. Once seated we asked to be moved, it was denied. The waiter asked if this was a special occasion, although we had stated that it was a birthday in our confirmation email. The waiters... More

We visited Skyview for Cocktails on a Thursday night. The hotel is amazing, a real must see, and whilst it is exquisitely fancy it is not at all stuffy like some London Hotels. The staff were extremely helpful and the environment is very relaxed - the view is one of the best in Dubai. Whilst it is incredibly expensive it... More

Getting in the Burj-Al-Arab alone is a must experience for anyone visiting Dubai.And the cheapest way to walk inside is to book either a tea experience visit or for drinks. It will cost you around 400-500 Dirhams per person. Worth every penny! It is expensive, but it is a once in a lifetime experience. We booked a table for night... More

Went on honeymoon for high tea and it was perfect We stayed at al qasr so was on the same complex allowing us to get a buggy there From the second you walk through the door the decor is a bit overly cheesy but I suppose it needs to be. However once you get up to sky bar in the... More

In order to gain access to the iconic Burj Al Arab, one must have a reservation at one of the restaurants or bars. At AED 560 per person, this was very expensive for what turned out to be a standard high tea menu of average quality. There are scones and sandwiches and cakes. Not bad, but not particularly great either.... More

What an experience....worth every penny (pounds).Book directly via email before you travel.The sky bar views are amazing and the staff are so into making your experience unforgettable. Afterwards you can sit in the hotel and watch the world go but whilst serenaded by a quartet. Best part of trip with memorable photos.

Reservation is a must, otherwise its not allowed to entry to the Burj Al Arab Hotel. Come by taxi and get out the taxi at the security gate. The AMAZING view of the hotel will be burnt in your mind chip… The bar is in the top of the hotel, overlooking the sea, but - if the visibility is O.K.... More
