We visited the Burj Al Arab Skyview Bar for afternoon tea on 18th June and we had a lovely time. It's expensive but worth it for a one-off experience. The food was delicious and there was lots of it - six courses in all including a glass of champagne and as much tea as you could drink. The choice of teas was extensive and we were impressed with the waiting staff's knowledge and advice offered. The service was attentive although at times we felt it was obvious that we were part of a rather large 'sitting' - it's certainly not an intimate setting but the views are fantastic. We mentioned our trip to Dubai was to celebrate my birthday and they surprised me with a birthday cake complete with candle and a beautiful red rose and they insisted on taking pictures of us both which was a nice touch.

We booked a summer dream package direct with hotel. Picked up from airport in a big Merc with driver dressed all in white and a big smile. Choice of music in car Great start. First 2 nights in DAR then last night in the Burj.

Best words ever on checkin ' You have a free upgrade!!' Massive panoramic suite with great views, room was perfect as good as all reviews say.

Second stay here so the butlers gave us more space but very attentive. to the pool and comfy loungers and attentive pool guys. hotel seemed very quiet which made it feel even more exclusive.

I must say that the meals let the place down! compared to the feel of the place and high levels of service the food is just average for a 3/4 star hotel so at the burj with its high prices its not good value in fact somewhat disappointing. That included breakfast and Junsi restaurant which also lacked any atmosphere. Skybar great.

Couples massage included in price. This was great, amazing Spa and great massage loved it.

Easy check out and we did so late with no fuss-so professional.

It was my birthday and the Butlers brought me a full bottle of Champagne, cake, card and fruit. Great touch of class cheers

In summary to stay here is amazing, go elsewhere for your food-they are catering for the passing trade of hotel tourists and is suffering as a result. Great experience splash out!!

Room Tip: all rooms are great

I went with my husband, our 10 year old twin boys and my friend who lives in Dubai. She suggested we book in for the high tea as it was a once in a lifetime experience. We were not disappointed. The food, drinks and service was top notch and the inside of the building is absolutely amazing. My boys had to keep pinching themselves, as did I!

We later had drinks in the bar on the top floor with friends and it took was amazing.

Yes you pay through the nose for both, but it's not like anything else you would experience anywhere else. I'm glad we did it.

Ive stayed here every year since it opened, sometimes twice a year. This hotel prides itself on service, there a none better. What most people fail to see is just how friendly this place is. Because of its reputation many think its stuffy, you couldnt be farther from the truth. Its actually intimate.

If your staying you will experience superior service and surroundings. The suites are immaculate. You have your own butler on call 24/7. The restaurants are all excellent.

If you are planning to come for a meal only you dont really see the hotels heart and soul. But your Dhiram is as good as anyone else's so enjoy the experience. It wont be cheap and it will cost you, but you will have a great meal.

Booked for dinner at the Al Muntaha restaurant and was emailed a confirmation with a list of what to wear, long sleeve shirt, jacket for men, no open toed footwear for ladies.
On arrival at the hotel we were shocked to find it was like Westminster Abby...full tourists (mainly Chinese) taking photos of everything and everyone.
I though "well at least the restaurant would be different..." I was shocked to see many other dinners dressed as though we were in a glorified McDonalds, the chap at the table opposite had no jacket and short sleeves and his wife had on a pair of flip flops......we actually felt overdress..!! after a "consultation" with the manager he very quickly booked us into the Al Mahara down stairs and the restaurant where a jacket is compulsory . Food fantastic and staff exemplary just what I was expecting (but a bit more expensive)
Conclusion:-
Its a tourist attraction and only they say its 7 stars.... glad I had not booked to stay

We stayed one night at the Burj for our wedding anniversary, with our children aged 10 and 13, in between other hotels in Dubai. Wow!! What an experience. The room was amazing - they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite - a massive apartment, with beautiful views. We were completely overawed by the size. The service was impeccable - nothing was too much trouble, although discreet and polite. The pool was peaceful after the Jumeirah, although drinks were hideously expensive but we expected that. We really did feel it was value for money as a treat. The children loved the experience, and the sweet trolley that came round during the evening.

I see a lot of people at BAA who have booked a cruise with one night in BAA, or a five-day stay in some Jumeirah hotel and one night in BAA. This creates the only disadvantage: in the entrance hall, you are being photographed all the time.
Besides this, BAA is still truly number one in the world. This is my 25th stay now, and no matter I stay by myself, with friends, or my family: they always find something new to surprise me. Each time, no matter the type of suite, it looks like it was just refurbished.
Fluctuation of people is high, but not to the disadvantage of the hotel. Using it for business or vacation: if you have the money, do it! I have heard that some people live in BAA constantly since it opened, and yes, I would do so, if I had the funds :)
Please no whining about pricing and etiquette ... if you cannot spend 150 USD for a simple bottle of wine, then you are not the target group, and you might not enjoy the venue.
