Why we choose Burj Al Arab

Burj Al Arab has become a Dubai icon, both for its architecture and its unparalleled indulgences

  • The private beach offers sun beds and mineral water facial sprays
  • Each floor has a dedicated reception, with in-suite check-in
  • One of the world’s largest fleets of Rolls Royces is at guests’ disposal

A stay at the all-suite Burj Al Arab is on many elite travelers’ “bucket list”—and no wonder. Butlers are on call 24 hours a day to satisfy every whim, not to mention the 1,600 employees that make the staff-to-suite ratio 8:1, one of the highest in the world. Incredible service is just the beginning of what you’ll find at Burj Al Arab, though.

All accommodations are duplex suites with 24-hour butlers on call. Your choice of room category is only restricted by your budget...

What you need to know about the hotel

Nearly as tall as the Empire State Building, the hotel’s wow factor kicks in at first glance

  • Bath menus veer from the refreshing Mint Bath to the Extreme Indulgence, with caviar, champagne and strawberries
  • Two palatial Royal Suites include private cinemas, four poster rotating canopy beds and dressing rooms larger than most hotel rooms
  • World-renowned seafood restaurant Al Mahara is accessed by a three-minute simulated submarine voyage

Burj Al Arab’s Arabian dhow sail structure is internationally famous, but this tallest all-suite hotel in the world has much more to offer than unique architecture. All 202 suites have floor-to-ceiling windows—the better to take in sweeping views of the Arabian Gulf—and top-notch appointments such as Hermes amenities and a pillow menu with 17 options.

First, however, you’ll be treated to a true Arabian welcome, with rose water, cold towels, dates, Bakhoor and authentic Arabic coffee. When your stomach rumbles, choose from seven restaurants and bars delivering the world on a plate: seafood, pan-Asian, modern European, Arabic and more. Bottom line: If your wallet is fat enough, nothing should stop you from a stay in what’s often called the world’s most luxurious hotel.

Where is it and what's nearby

Dubai’s most recognizable landmark is almost 1,000 feet offshore on a man-made island

  • Hop a helicopter for the airport transfers, as well as bird’s-eye tours of the scenic city and man-made islands
  • Hotel guests get unlimited access to Wild Wadi Water Park, a 12-acre Arabian-themed park offering 30 distinct rides
  • Shoppers can pick from onsite boutiques such as Levant and Chopard jewelry, Rivoli watches and Albarajeel Persian carpets

Burj Al Arab is located on a man-made island in the United Arab Emirates, connected to the Dubai mainland via a thin causeway. While you may not feel the need to leave the impressive property, we recommend making the nine-mile trek into the city centre for once-in-a-lifetime experiences like scouring the souks for a bargain and touring the many historic sites and museums. Outside the city center, Dubai’s eclectic sights and sounds give way to majestic sand dunes, desert safaris and bird watching, while the waterfront offers a diverse array of water sports.

How to enjoy Dubai

Dubai is like nowhere else on earth. You can sleep under an immense canopy of stars in silence of the desert, or revel in the noise and bustle of one of the fastest growing and most glamorous cities on earth

  • Cross Dubai Creek to Deira for a spot of shopping, or if not shopping, cross anyway just to experience the six-lane floating bridge
  • Enjoy a round of golf at the championship course, Montgomerie Dubai, designed by the Ryder Cup winning captain Colin Montgomerie
  • For the sheer craziness of it, forgo baking in the Arabian sun for a distinctly chillier excursion to Ski Dubai, an indoor slope complete with snow

Nestled between the undulating golden sands of the desert and sparkling blue sea, Dubai enjoys a stunning, sunshine-filled location.  But suggesting this destination is about sun, sand and sea does this emirate a disservice. Everything about Dubai is superlative. This includes the world’s longest driverless metro, biggest shopping mall, largest flag and longest floating bridge.

Dominating the skyline are the tallest building in the world, the vertigo-inducing 2,722ft skyscraper Burj Khalifa, and the iconic sail of the Burj Al Arab. Dubai also excels in treating its residents and visitors to the fast lane of luxury and opulence. Down at ground level you will find exquisite, lavish hotels and a shopper’s paradise, from the glitzy Emirates Mall, to the exotic Gold Souq.
