  • Burj Al Arab, I know not as a guest but as a guest a (business) gala evening in the pool area. Of course, I got the pool with the individual (?? it is difficult for me to find a proper name??) viewed "air-conditioned pool living spaces". D you would say luxury beach huts with sofa, fridge and giant TV :-) You have to see it, whether it needs, let alone want to pay is there!

  • We've been to lunch at Al Mahara restaurant, and we chose a dish comes all kinds of seafood, and it's served cold. It was quite an experience! Recommend.

  • In the hotel, not as a photographer of the Burj al Arab, go to beaches. Becoming a backlight in the afternoon, in the morning is recommended. Strong wind and be blown away by the stuff, be careful. We went by public transportation. Go to the beach bus stop by tram at bus 88 or X28 bus at the terminus, in: Burj al Arab-Mae Bus stop. For pictures from the front and to get off in front of Burj al Arab and the insta Sheen does not. Went in January now swimming ban at a public beach. But close to the toilet is a caution needed. Back on the bus toilet Mall is located just 700 metres away and rented there.

  • Was a nice experience to see such a luxury hotel. Good for sightseeing. We have a company event here, however the catering was not as good as expected. But all and all it was a nice experience. The staff is super professional and helpful.
  • Simply stated, it's one of the best hotels in the world. The rooms are exquisite. You have two stories to explore with windows that run from the floor to the ceiling. It's the ultimate in luxury. It tends to be in the opulent side, so prepare for gold covering everything in the room. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz
  • Amazing atmosphere. The hotel is perfect from inside and out. With perfect restaurant and view... extravagance at its best! Super luxurious, super fancy 7 star hotel... and it’s structure with exotic attraction...
  • Beautiful property with amazing rooms. The food at the two restaurants we went to was outstanding, and the service was phenomenal at both. Staff are genuinely kind and helpful in the restaurants as well as the helpful butlers stationed on each floor. The water fountains and aquariums in the lobby are beautiful to watch. Stay for a while at the giant center water extravaganza next to the escalators and watch the show!
  • Amazing It is a heaven. Its like a heaven on earth made by the prince really it is a great place to visit once in a lifetime.God give the ability to visit the Burj Al Arab in my life once.Thank you all of you Local guides for helping other people's really it's a. Great job.
