We stayed for my Husbands 50th birthday and didn't know what to expect. We thought it may be a bit over the top for us but wanted to experience it for a special occasion. The hotel arranged for us to be collected from the Airport in a Rolls Royce and on arrival was escorted straight up to our room, which the hotel had upgraded to a panoramic suite. The view and the size of the room was breathtaking. They had also arranged a surprise in one of the cabanas which was decorated with balloons, along with wine and a chocolate cake. The deck area around the pool is stunning and although we have visited Dubai many times the views of the hotel from the pool is unbelievable. It was also so lovely to sit outside on the deck area and eat the delicious breakfast, the setting was so good we didn't want to leave to go and sit round the pool!! The service was fantastic throughout the hotel and you were made to feel very welcome and special. Yes its expensive but their is something very special about this hotel and we can't wait to go back again. Read less

We stayed here for two nights to check out what’s all the fuss about :). It was a well deserved experience and the hotel staff are always at hand to make sure they say Yes to all your questions/ queries. The current best views are of the palm island side, compared to the other construction side. The suites are very grand and luxurious,… Read more
We stayed here for two nights to check out what’s all the fuss about :). It was a well deserved experience and the hotel staff are always at hand to make sure they say Yes to all your questions/ queries. The current best views are of the palm island side, compared to the other construction side. The suites are very grand and luxurious, however I do feel in the coming years they will be refurbishing too. The pool area is amazing and they do have beach access via a buggy service as well. Overall great stay and wish them all the best. Read less

Location is amazing. Ambiance compliments all the beauty and chick. Restaurant Open Buffet Selection was average and not managed well, as many plates with dishes were going empty too fast or were not heated, therefore not looking good. Service was okay, however compare to the Waldorf and Anantara, I was disappointed.

You expect a lot but you get more. The way you feel guest is amazing and never experienced before. So personalised and so fantastic. Yes the Burj al Arab is expensive, but the experience makes it worth to put this on your bucket list.
