I came with a tour and had a high tea. It's very expensive, but is the only way to see the legendary hotel, which is absolutely amazing. Make sure you get a tour of the hotel lobby! If you are coming just for food, you'll be disappointed, as there is far better and less expensive food to be had in... More

excellent service, friendly atmosphere, feels like a home away from home, although the prices are rocket high, you have to compromise cos of its 7 star value.

The sky view bar is of course all it is billed as atop the burj al Arab, however with only booking a week ahead for late night cocktails at 10 pm we expected a vibe which was sadly lacking. The bar had possibly 10 people in total so vast unoccupied space and everyone speaking in hushed tones as the background... More

The drive up to the hotel, the fountains, the different levels of the hotel, the lift up to the bar and to top it all the views from the bar. The cocktails... More

Every time I visited this place I feel like it's my 1st time any many reason behind that. Not because it's located on on of the word seven stars hotel only, but because of the special treatment you get specially if you are having a special occasion, the only thing you need to do just inform them in advance and...
