Burj Al Arab Jumeirah

Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is undoubtedly one of the most famous landmarks and tourist attractions in Dubai, and is renowned for its ‘seven-star status’. The luxury record-breaking all-suite hotel includes a range of fine-dining restaurants, incredible beaches and the expansive Burj Al Arab Terrace.

Since its opening in 1999, the Burj Al Arab has played host to a covetable guest list of VIPs and celebrities from all over the world, helping put Dubai on the global luxury tourism map. Built on its own island, the sail-shaped building rises 321m, providing guests with amazing room views of the Arabian Gulf.

One of the best hotels in the world

With gold interiors, lavish suites and some of the city’s best restaurants, it’s no surprise the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is often considered among the best places to stay in Dubai, alongside many five-star hotels. Throughout their time here, guests experience why it is often regaled as a ‘seven-star’ hotel. Before leaving the premises, they even receive a mesmerising farewell at the recently renovated Exit Lobby, which features a bespoke spiral chandelier – created by Czech design company Sans Souci, the glittering centrepiece comprises 210 crystal tubes and weighs around 450kg.

Diners who want exceptional views with their meals can pick between the poolside SAL or Ristorante L’Olivo at Al Mahara, an underwater restaurant and aquarium. Other luxuries include a fleet of Rolls-Royce cars on the forecourt and the famous helipad that has hosted the likes of Tiger Woods, Anthony Joshua and Roger Federer.

For even more relaxation, the Burj Al Arab Terrace provides 10,000sqm of outdoor space for poolside lounging. The sun-soaked deck stretches 100m from the base of the hotel, giving swimmers the thrill of lounging over the waves.

A nightly stay at the exclusive establishment starts at AED4,500 during the low season and AED8,000 in the high season. For the latest prices, including taxes and fees, and information on booking suites, please visit the official hotel website.
