#Sight Seeing
Burj Al Arab in Dubai

The distinctive sail-shaped silhouette of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is more than just a stunning hotel, it is a symbol of modern Dubai. Yet for all the wonder this stunning structure provides when you finally see it in person, it is the service within that really makes the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah so extraordinary.

"It really is a seven star hotel and a place you really must try to visit at least once if you are in Dubai. A booking at a restaurant is enough to get through the door. Gold everywhere and spectacular fittings. I first visited just after it opened in 2000 and it still feels special, if perhaps not quite as special as it felt back then. I would recommend the Asian buffet restaurant as a place to eat - not cheap - but then it is 7* service and food!"

"We stayed in the zabeel Saray hotel jumeirah and we were gonna go here for a luxury 7 star dinner until the hotel reception told us it was over 200 Dirhams! I expected it to be very expensive because it's a 7 star hotel but it's a bit too much we would have gone there if it was a hundred maybe but we decided not to :( will come back when I have more money!"

"7 star luxury hotel - I am a Dubai resident and heard a lot about this Iconic hotel. I booked lunch at Al Iwan restaurent for my family & guests (Not for food) but to have world class experience. Booking procedure: My call quickly connected to F&B and based on my preference (I am pure vegetarian), they recommended Al Iwan which is on First floor. Time: Thy tool almost 10 minute to take my booking which is worth as they explained everything from Menu, dress code, options available for Veggie etc Food: It was perfect, to our surprise their Chef met us personally and ask their staff to serve Indian food specially prepared for us. Price: Expensive but worth spending Views from Restaurant: Amazing Overall experience: Since we had confirmed booking, we got 7 star treatment start from entrance, also got a chance to view the hotel from lobby and certain area."

"The Talise spa was good, amazing view and great facilities. The staff were friendly too, with the exception of our afternoon tea where we were made to wait for 1 hour after initially being told of a 10 minute wait."

"Best 7 star hotel ever seen in my life. On the top floor a drink is served in gold bowl as a token. The Drink costs around 28,000 Dhiram. Speciality of the Drink is that you get a gold bowl as a gift in which it's served and the one orders the Drink his/her name is entered in the Guinness Book of World Records. Most expensive drink."
