  • This architectural wonder was on my bucket list and now i know why. i was in tears with the beauty and meticulous care taken to make this PALACE a priceless gem. The precision of service from beginning to end is incomparable. The shopping, food, accommodations, absolutely everything far exceeded any expectation i had. When i die, spread my ashes off the helipad lol.
  • Both I, my wife and two children thurley enjoyed our holiday here. From the moment you departure from your vehicle you are greeted by associates who care. Guestrooms were very comfortable and clean and the lobby bar was a great amenity each night. The attached restaurant has a really good atmosphere and would suggest you check it out when staying here. The food was amazing! It was a pleasure staying at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah resort the view was incredible and the infrastructure with the attention to detail decor inside was astonishing. Will be most defiantly visiting here again Thank you! Yates Family
  • 5 stars all the way for this magnificent building - it is the only hotel in the world which is a 7 star hotel. They say this is the billion dollar hotel. It's beautiful and is situated right on the beach which has beautiful views all way round. This is a magical place if you get to experience it. Love it.
