by georeiser about Hotel Burj Al Arab

It is built on an artificial island connected by a bridge to Jumeira beach. Only guests are allowed inside the hotel, so all other spectators must see the building from distance (see photo).

Burj Al Arab

by Cielo_Algaeed about Burj Al Arab

Burj AL Arab is the famous landmark of Dubai as of today. The most expensive & luxurious accomodation in UAE.

They are self proclaimed 7 star hotel, though technically speaking there is no such thing as 7 star hotel :-). They are just one of the 5 stars hotel in the world.

Famous celebrities, politicians, athletes etc are of common site here :-)

if you will ask me if i tried to dine inside and see for myself the interior of the hotel? Sorry, i did not have the chance to do so. The in house resto's are having bad publicity and negative reviews regarding the food and the pricey drinks and food. SO we just decided to skip this activity and just have a souvenir photo outside hehehe.

The Burj al Arab

by ateach52

Fabulous opulence - reminiscent of The Thousand and One Nights! You must just see it, even if you don't stay there! Go on in and have a drink in the bar which is located at the very top of the building, literally hanging above the azure waters of the Gulf.

Okay, I didn't stay here but I know it's cheaper than the Burj al Arab and it's also got private and free access to the Wild Wadi Water Park -an absolute banker for me! Location, Amenities

Dubai's Most Expensive Luxury Accommodation

by Pinoy_Traveller about Burj Al Arab

I wouldn't say stay at Burj Al Arab for the sake of just staying in a hotel. But definitely i would suggest to those who have set exorbitantly high budget for hotel accommodation like US $1000 to 12,000 to experience the ultimate arabian hospitality experience.

An architectural icon of Dubai, Burj Al Arab is the tallest all-suite hotel in the world standing 321 metes above sea level. With its remarkably handcrafted designed 202 suites, Burj Al Arab is perhaps a destination in itself... The hotel has 5 restaurants, 2 lounges, 1 bar, an opulent spa and a helipad for helicopter transfer. Al Mahara restaurant is a seafood restaurant offering a wide-array of asian and international seafood cuisine with apparently expensive dining pay offs. Al Muntaha at the 27th floor offers a panoramic view of Dubai within a remarkably futuristic design cylinder-shaped structure suspended in mid-air. The helicopter transfer will get you to the hotel in no time and back to the airport for a costly ride of 9000 dirhams or 2500 US dollars.

Most Luxurious Hotel

by morninglory about Burj Al Arab

Well...i didn't stay here...way too expensive. The lowest price is around USD1000 a night.Not everyone allowed to be in here. If you just come for a visit, you have to pay AED200 for entrance fee and spend it in the hotel..for example at the bar or restaurnt or at the souvenir shop! The interior was luxuriously built.The pillars are gold-plated...the looks from outside is like the sail which reflects the sea. Even the registration plate number has the burj Al Arab picture...shows how amazing this building is.

Burj Al Arab!

by piravlos01

"Gee, it's hot !"

Well... The first feeling you have after getting down from the airplane is HOT and HUMIDITY. After entering the terminal things change. People wearing traditional Emirates suits and having a great respect to their religion and ethics, while being friendly and willing to help you. Just don't offend them.

"A miracle in the desert..."

Out of the terminal while the car of the hotel rides you in your hotel, you will see an icon unfamiliar to what you know. Trees and grass in the desert surrounding enormous and astonishing buildings! Those are mostly hotels and moles. You wiil definately see things your eyes won't believe! Be ready for the unexpected. The city has it's opposite face in the area near the river where small boats come from Iran to trade.
A! Be ready to hold your mouth closed, just in case you pass outside of Burj Al Arab (Tower of Arabs)...

BURJ AL ARAB HOTEL, DUBAI

by slaybelle

Burj Al Arab

It would be easy to run out of superlatives when describing Burj Al Arab, a hotel that has already become an internationally recognizable landmark. Burj Al Arab's sail-shaped structure, which soars 321 metres above the Arabian Gulf, has already become as much a point of reference in Dubai as the Eiffel Tower is in Paris. Indeed, Burj Al Arab - or Arabian Tower - is taller than the French monument and just 60 metres shorter than New York's Empire State Building.

Dazzling white by day, the sail is transformed U into a rainbow of colour at night. Using the very latest technical innovations and 142 iridium floodlights the hotel becomes the backdrop for a spectacular light show that can be seen for miles around. A nautical theme, reflecting the island location, dominates throughout. It can be seen from the exterior design, imaginative decor and furnishings, to the aquaria with 500 species of tropical fish from the Gulf and the Great Barrier Reef, and the unique Al Mahara seafood restaurant.

An amazing total of 2,000 square metres of 22-carat gold leaf adorns walls, pillars and domes throughout. Gold is a particularly striking feature in the hotel's elegant and opulent Al Falak ballroom.The colourful, handcrafted carpets have been individually sourced from India, South Africa and The United Kingdom; the beautiful Azul Bahia granite has been quarried in Brazil; while Statutario marble from Carrera in Italy covers walls and floors - the very same stone from which Michelangelo created his masterpieces.

"Eating Facilities"

Take a voyage of discovery to experience Al Mahara, or the shelI a seafood paradise with a theme set deep in the Arabian Gulf. To dine here is indeed a unique experience, which starts with a three-minute submarine' voyage from the hotel's lobby through a marine wonderland to the golden entrance to Al Mahara.


The Volcano, and its wall of water combined with flames, has never been seen before in the region. Guests are met in the world's largest Atrium Lobby by guest services staff in their distinctive uniforms. Their attire, like those of all the hotel's 1,200 staff, have been designed exclusively by renowned British designer Bruce Oldfield. Stepping inside the lobby, the opulence of Burj Al Arab is immediately obvious, Interior design consultants, Khuan Chew Associates, have chosen striking themes which run throughout the property.

"Boardroom on the 27th floor"

"the SPA reception"

The sumptuous interior of Burj Al Arab is reflected in grand style by its superb outdoor facilities. In addition to the lavish indoor pool area at the Assawan Spa and Health Club, the hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool on the edge of the Arabian Gulf. Here guests can take a dip in the pool, relax in the Jacuzzi or top up their tans on the plush sundeck. Bab Al Yam café and outdoor pool bar is the perfect place to enjoy sundowners and an early supper, or simply have a bite after a vigorous swim. For guests who would like to swim in the calm, azure waters of the Arabian Gulf itself, Burj Al Arab has its own private beach, with buggies laid on to ferry guests back and forth.

Visitors can then be let in with the push of a button. Every suite has its own laptop computer, scanner and printer which interface with the television. Guests can phone home from anywhere in their suite. A one-bedroom suite has 14 telephones and each Royal Suite boasts no fewer than 27 handsets. The one-bedroom de Iuxe suites, and two and three-bedroom suites have their own private dining rooms, serviced by fully-equipped kitchens. .

Arabian traditions of extending a warm welcome and offering the best hospitality are mainstays of the service philosophy at Burj Al Arab.The service at the property is outstanding and exceeds the expectations of the most discerning guests. The Burj Al Arab experience begins the moment guests arrive at Dubai International Airport, where they will be met by one of the hotel's fleet of eight chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce Silver Seraphs.Visitors who arrive by helicopter will experience a 15-minute bird's-eye panorama of the city, culminating in a dramatic landing on the hotel's helipad on the 28th level.

Its innovative design, both interior and exterior, has been praised by experts worldwide and Burj Al Arab is universally regarded as a symbol of the new millennium

"Thank you for visiting my friends!"

Going to Burj Al-Arab

by maxdeep777

Hey guys, i will be in Dubai International Aiport for 10 hours ... Im planning to see the legendary Burj-Al Arab hotel from nearby beach ... can anyone tell me where can i get a taxi back to aiport from the beach? ...

Thanks,

Deep (Malaysia)

Re: Going to Burj Al-Arab

by JessH

Hi from Dubai,

you can usually get taxis right in front of hotels, for example: the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. It's the one shaped like a wave, right next to the Burj Al Arab.

Or on the other side of the Burj Al Arab is the Madinat Jumeirah Resort. There are always plenty of taxis there.

Re: Going to Burj Al-Arab

by colin_bramso

The best beach is right beside the hotel, and as Jess said you can walk the short distance to the JBH or Madinat Jumeirah. I suggest that you have a look around Souk Madinat Jumeirah while you're in that area anyway so that would be my suggestion for where you get the taxi back.

Re: Going to Burj Al-Arab

by 37SingleMaleInDubai1

Hi there,
To add to the very useful answers, I just want to emphasize that you should start returning back to the airport at least 3.5 hours before the scheduled flight because the roads may become congested and takes you long for returning back.
Good luck.

Re: Going to Burj Al-Arab

by colin_bramso

Very good point Amir mon ami, especially depending on the time of day.

Deep, if you're going back from around 5pm to 8pm you'll hit the peak traffic which goes in that direction.

As Colin said,
check their website. It's very expensive of course :-)

burj al arab

by southcoastuk

Hi,

I am looking to treat my wife to a meal at the Burj al Arab but as we are not staying there is it possible to make reservations? Also does anyone the costs involved? (is it really expensive?)

Thanks

Re: burj al arab

by Mitjo

I dont about the price, but it is possible, and it is pretty common I think, many people visit there and some people eat there, even not so many stay there.

Re: burj al arab

by Erkmen

You can make a reservation to the restaurants though you dont stay in the hotel..

If you check their websites you can have a rough figure of the costs.. The fish restaurant is expensive but in one of the resturants, the menu was less than 100,- USD + drinks per person.....

Re: burj al arab

by 37SingleMaleInDubai1

Hi there, Yes it possible to have a great meal in Burj Al Arab hotel. If you come to Dubai just give them a call and ask for the type of meal you are looking for and they will guide you accordingly. The number is as follows:
Hotel Burj Al Arab 04 301 7777
P.O. Box: 74147 - Dubai
I wish you a safe trip and happy holiday.
Take care and be safe.

Re: burj al arab

by colin_bramso

Do go there, it's fantastic. You have a choice of restaurants.
Website is www.burjalarab-hotel-dubai.com

Re: burj al arab

by donna12

Hi
You should have no problem booking a reservation for the Burj. We went there last summer for a tour and decided to have some snacks in the cafe. We paid £7 each for a bottle of beer and a milkshake, and about £10 each for some arabic snacks and a steak sandwich. I am sure it will be worth it as you will probably never forget the visit. We ate cheaply in the Pakistani and Indian restaurants for a few days to offset the Burj costs!
Enjoy and post your experience on VT.
Donna
