Earning a worldwide reputation for 7-star luxury Dubai stays, the Burj Al Arab's striking sail-shaped tower is instantly recognizable, and it's the 4th tallest hotel in the world. From the fireworks which welcome guests, to the fleet of white Rolls Royce vehicles ferrying guests over the private causeway, everything about the hotel states is an epic statement. When you've finished ogling the Swarovski crystal-ceiling in the galactic-inspired Junsui Lounge, get situated in one of the lavish two-story suites - each with a private butler and discreet in-room check in. Slice into beef tartare and other Continental-style delights at the fittingly-named Al Muntaha ('The Ultimate') restaurant at the hotel's summit.

Neighborhood
The Burj al Arab Hotel Dubai has its own artificial island just off Jumeirah Beach. The short drive across the causeway takes you to The Walk, Dubai's bustling waterfront 'Golden Mile', packed with upscale shopping, restaurants and bars. Nearby you'll find the Wild Wadi Waterpark, where guests of Burj al Arab enjoy complimentary entrance. Ski Dubai is also close at hand, and you can take a water tour on the native 'dhow' boats - reflected in the Burj al Arab's famous sail design.
Hints and tips
Feeling overwhelmed or indecisive about dinner? Try the Culinary Flight package to sample a course from each of the Burj Al Arab's eight restaurants.

If you'd rather take the wheel yourself to cruise downtown Dubai, you can rent anything from a brand new Aston Martin to a Lamborghini from the hotel.
Policies and fees
Please note that Wild Wadi Waterpark will be closed for maintenance from 11 Jan 2015 to 11 Feb 2015, inclusively.

Impressive Hotel but very Stuffy

The hotel is impressive with gorgeous suites. The location is wonderful with all the sister hotels just a buggy (golf carts) ride away or a view out your window. The buggy rides with very friendly drivers was great. The suites were over the top with electronic controls for everything from drapes & mood lighting to opening the front door, beautiful bathrooms with fullsize toiletry amenities, staircase. You can call the butler to draw your bath water if you wish. The "office" comes complete with a laptop computer, fax machine with your own fax number. Definitely worth the experience once. Prices are ridiculous though. We went to the lunch buffet the first afternoon. It was a cruise type buffet and decor but cost almost $500. I would not recommend it. The hotel was just to stuffy for our taste. It was 110 degrees outside yet they request no shorts or sandals in the lobby or restaurants anytime except the pool. Jackets are required for men at dinner.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a buggy ride to one of the many bars at the sister hotels. The drinks are MORE THAN double at the Burj.

Phenomenal Property

The Burj al Arab is a phenomenal property, managed with the highest possible standards, and responsive and committed staff. The hotel is expensive, but this is to be expected at any property labeled as "The most luxurious hotel in the world."

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

To save money, I would recommend dining at the nearby Mall of the Emirates. The mall has phenomenal restaurants, great shopping and entertainment (skiing, movies, etc.). There is also a huge grocery store with fresh baked goods and local fare.
