  • Burj Al Arab is a private area, where you cannot enter when you don't have a reservation for the restaurant or when you are not a guest. Couldn't find the right way to the public beach are, where you can take some nice pics - finally found one on the right side of Burj Al Arab but photos had to be shot against the sun. Later we read that there must be also a left sided beach area, where you can get closer to the hotel, so my recommendation: read and find a perfect way to a nearby beach area BEFORE you get there, where you can make fantastic photos - maybe a taxi driver can give the right tip. Nevertheless BAA is an outstanding building with its own effect. Also the Jumeirah Hotel is worth to have a look at, because it fits perfectly to the whole landscape. We enjoyed being there and take some pics and spend there about 1,5 till 2 hours following by have a small lunch at the Mall of Emirates, which is directly in front of Jumeirah Hotel.
  • If there is a 7 stars review rating, would for sure offered. A fully integrated high-end customer service experience with astonishing surprises at all aspects. Burj Al Arab plays in a totally superior high-end league! If you can afford it, go for it.. it can be a once in a life time experience..
  • Definitely luxurious but time for a change. Step it up! The rooms and restaurants inside shout luxury, something you would expect from a 7 star hotel. But the decor hasn't changed since they first opened.
