What's inside the Burj Al Arab?

Standing at 321 meters, Dubai's striking Burj Al Arab is one of the tallest hotels on the planet, but height alone doesn't earn a seven-star reputation! What's inside the world's most luxurious hotel that makes it so special?

Royal Suite

At $19,000 a night, the Royal Suite is the hotel's most expensive room! The two-storey suite has a brigade of butlers on call, as well as countless amenities.

Al Mahara

This hotel restaurant is accessed via a simulated submarine voyage. Inside is an aquarium so huge that the glass must be 18 centimeters thick to handle the pressure!


OK, so this one's technically on, not in, the Burj Al Arab. As optional extras go, however, arriving by helicopter is definitely one of the most extravagant!

Talise Spa

Some hotel spas aren't much more than steam-proofed old storage closets. This one has a panoramic sauna 150 meters high, from which you can view the city through fog-proof glass!

Skyview Bar

The Skyview Bar offers world-class cocktails, live music, and a decor that goads close conversation. Oh yeah, and astonishing 200-meter-high views over the Gulf!

Burj Al Arab: Our Tips

How to get there?

The Burj Al Arab is located on an artificial island across a private bridge. The easiest and most affordable way to reach it is by taxi, but if you're feeling flash, call the hotel to book a Rolls Royce or helicopter pick-up!

How to get in?

Unfortunately, it's not as easy as just showing up at the hotel and gawking. You won't even make it to the lobby without proof of a reservation (if not a room, then at least a restaurant meal or the hotel's famous afternoon tea). Access is also granted as part of some guided tours.

How much is it a night?

Of course, not every room is as expensive as the Royal Suite, but even the cheapest rooms will cost you at least $1,800!

Good to Know

  • When to visit
    24 hours a day
  • What is the price?
    It's an astounding building from the outside, but it costs quite a bit to get in - best to check out the range of tours available.
  • Will I need a guide?
    Not necessarily, but your visit needs to be booked in advance.
  • How to get there
    The hotel sits on a little island off mainland Dubai. The nearest metro stop is Mall of the Emirates, then walk across the bridge. However, it is more direct to get a taxi.
  • Additional tips
    • Dress nicely - this is one of the world's fanciest hotels. | You can only enter the Burj as a visitor (as opposed to a guest) if you have a reservation in a restaurant. There are a selection of packages offering this.

What People Are Saying About Burj Al Arab

had a great time will definitely do another tour next time

The tour great and we got to see a lot of the nice places in Dubai. I think i would choose an earlier one next time so wouldn't be wandering around in the dark trying to take photos. I met some nice people and we had a good tour guide.

Helpful, informative driver, who also drove carefully.

Our driver was almost a guide, as he took us to many of the sights we may have found difficult to find without him. His driving was also careful, something some of the drivers we have used, are not. They left us fearing for our lives in the manic Dubai traffic, but this one was careful and considerate to us as nervous Europeans too! The tour took in many places which we had asked to visit, like Dubai creek, gold souk and the Burj Halifa. Highly recommend this driver especially if you want to preserve your life!

An experience you'll never forget in a hurry!!

My girlfriend and I turned up to this place that looked like a building site but it was well sign posted so we found the reception area straight away! When we arrived there was a power shortage so there was no air con! It was boiling. The lady behind the counter was very helpful and accommodating offing us water and still continuing to smile even though the heat was unbearable! Our flight was a at 9 and we had to go through some safety features with a guy who was very nice he even put seats outside in the shade for us as he could see we were hot! The flight was incredible with each area being explained in detail with a smooth take off and landing it put my girlfriend at ease as she's not really up for anything crazy! We got back and we had pictures taken and we had a look and the guys put them on a stick for us and it only cost 150aed including the memory stick! As we went to leave they saw we didn't have a car and offered us a lift to the nearest mall to get a taxi! BOOK THIS!!!!!

Great way to see main attractions of Dubai

We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of Dubai. Our guide Abdullah was a joy to be with. He was knowledgeable, funny and nothing was too much trouble for him. It was a great way to see most of what Dubai has to offer which then allowed us to decide where we would like to go back and see/explore in more detail. The price was excellent value. We would definitely recommend this tour, especially to people who are only in Dubai for the day.

A must do if you want great service and a quality experience

Really enjoyed the experience. Really worthwhile - everyone should do this at some day on their holiday.
