“Second stay even more impressive than the first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Celebrating a milestone birthday and there was really only one hotel to do it in.

After first staying a couple of years ago and being overwhelmed by the place, the Burj had been on the list of places to return.

This time we were picked up by the Rolls Royce Phantoms - one for our daughters and one for us. I can highly recommend this mode of transport for an extra special touch, but however you choose to arrive, you cannot fail to be impressed with the personalised service that greets you on arrival.

After experiencing the "standard" rooms on our previous visit, we chose a Club Suite this time and this will now be our room of choice. Lazy hours were spent playing snooker at our own full size snooker table before a drink at our private bar. Breakfast was served at our own dining table for 8 with the Butlers on hand to serve each course and pour the drinks from the kitchen.
The Happy Birthday serenade by four of the Butlers before presenting a cake and bouquet of red roses was definitely a highlight.

Another trip of a lifetime and more memories made to look back on in the years to come.

Room Tip: All fantastic, but Club rooms if you want that extra bit of space and added facilities.

The decor we found was not to our taste, quite gaudy and blingy, lots of fountains indoors. Its perfect for the arab market though. They really tried to make the Burj better, more showy, more extravagant than the rest. But isn't that what Dubai is all about?
Its quite obvious but the muddled concoction just has a slightly underwhelming effect.

We ate here too, the restaurant was again quite gaudy, with blues and golds. The food though, was amazing, can't complain.

I recently organised a night in the Al Muntaha Restaurant for my wifes birthday. The whole experience from booking through to completing the evening was 1st Class. I had arranged a Bespoke certificate to be sent home and that was recieved very quickly, I requested a Chauffeur driven Rolls Royce which was organised promptly, the staff from the entering the Hotel to exiting were attentive to our every need and the service for the Dinner was outstanding. For you food lovers out there this dinner is a must.
Thanks you to all the team involved in making this a most memorable experience for my Wife.

Since I first saw a documentary on the Burj not long after opening, I have always wanted to go to Dubai. I just returned for the 5th time and finally got to stay at the Burj which was a dream come true and the top of my Bucket List.

We were collected in the Rolls Royce Phantom where we were greeted by Mohammed the driver who proudly presented me with a beautiful bunch of coloured roses. He was incredibly friendly and offered a wealth of info on Dubai and landmarks that we passed by. It's very cool to be given a music 'menu' to choose from! lol

On arrival at the Burj, a beautiful and lovely lady greeted us and guided us to our room. Soon after, we were given the tour of the room and it's features. When we were left alone, we walked around in sheer awe - it was even better than the pictures and videos we'd seen. Absolute jaw-dropping luxury. From the remote controlled door, curtains and butler service, to the fully-equipped office complete with Apple Mac, to the amazing main bathroom stocked with full-sized Hermes products and a spectacular spa - everything was just stunning. We were going to spend every single moment enjoying this room.

We enjoyed a couple of cocktails at the Skyview Bar prior to dinner. As usual the service was great. I was stoked to see a cocktail based on The Big Bang Theory tv show!

At dinner we dined at Bab AlYam which was good. At the end of our meal, the staff presented hubby with a beautiful birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday which was such a lovely and unexpected gesture (although we were so full from dinner we had them box it for us to take back to our room). Not long after we returned to our room, room service arrived and wheeled in another (different) birthday cake, a beautiful bunch of roses and a birthday card signed by the GM. We were so ecstatic and humbled - what a great memory of our stay.

In summary, the Burj far exceeded our expectations and we hope to stay again some day - it will forever hold a special place in my heart.

P.S - we took both birthday cakes with us and spent the next 4 days eating them at Atlantis ... they were both to die for! Thanks everyone at the Burj!

Room Tip: Rooms are absolutely magnificent!!!!!!!!

The hotel was beautiful and the views outstanding. The service cannot be outdone. The private beach was very relaxing and swimming in the arabian sea was great. We stayed in one of the panoramic suites and now i have been spoiled to where i would have to get that room everytime! Floor to ceiling windows with views of the city as well as the palm were gorgeous. The moonlight romantic swim package was worth every penny along with the time with the sweetie. All around a great stay and worth doing at least once through dubai.

The Skyview Bar is the place to be. The view is incredible, floor to ceiling glass walls. Service is great, people are extremely friendly, food is terrific. It is pricey but a must do if you are in Dubai. You need to make reservations in advance or you will not be allowed into the property. It fills up so make sure you call them a few days ahead of when you plan to go.

Room Tip: I did not stay at this hotel, only visited the Skyview Bar.
