High tea at the Burj al Arab Skyview Bar on the 27th floor is a must-do. Be sure and make reservations, and bring your confirmation sheet as you cannot enter the hotel grounds without it. We were a little early for our 4pm reservation, but they suggested that we walk around and take pictures if we'd like. The hotel lobby is gorgeous with real gold gilded everywhere and an aquarium and fountains by the escaltors. The high tea experience was fun and each course was fabulous. Single dishes were served and then tiers of food, all delicious. Even the teas were excellent and we tried four different ones from the 'wellness' section of an extensive tea/coffee list. So, if you don't want tea there are other options. We had plenty to eat, but you can have as much as you like apparently. As were were in Dubai to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we were given a lovely red rose and chocolate cake (see pic). Lots of folks celebrating something as nearly everyone seemed to get the rose. At the end of the meal, we were given a nice box of chocolates to take home.

We were visiting Dubai on a 3 day stopover on the way to New Zealand and whilst it was different than we expected the things we did including our Afternoon Tea at Burj Al Arab all lived up to expectations. We had read varying reviews but it was great to be dropped at the hotel after a drive round Dubai with our private car tour guide. We had a little time to wait so sat in the lounge listening to the music playing whilst absorbing the opulence of the interior of the hotel. At our allocated time we booked the 4pm Afternoon Tea so we could see the sunset across the Palm we went up to the Skyview Bar where we were given a window table with a lovely view. The service of the staff made you feel special. The menu was all explained in detail and beutifully presented, the food all served on a cake stand in the same sail shape as the hotel. We were not rushed and never had to ask for anything the staff were most attentive and as it was our anniversary we were presented with a box of fancies and a rose to take away. A most memorable afternoon and we had had plenty to eat so did not need dinner. It is worth the money for the experience, I highly recommend it.

I went to the BAA Skyview Bar High Tea and it was incredible! Amazing food, great service, and spectacular views! For the equivalent of about $170 AUD it was a great afternoon well spent. Don't forget to book in advance! The bar had it all - the food was incredible, drinks freeflowing, and we even saw a couple of celebrities. Amazing!

Everything! The staff were very friendly, courteous, knowledgeable & polite, it's so nice to be greeted by your name! The suite was fabulous and the views were awesome. Had a great stay!!

Quality of facial tissues in the suite.They were quite harsh on the skin, would have expected soft tissues. Kitchen was very ill equipped,ie no crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils etc.

Room Tip: No think to say gatte er you pick Will ne good!

Exceptional hotel with excellent service. Very spacious rooms. We particularly liked the cocktail lounge overlooking Dubai.

Could not fault it. Stayed there for a few days with friends on a stop over.
