    The architecture is absolutely fantastic! This is probably the only hotel I have been where a regular guided tour of the property is available for visitors....make this hotel a bona fide tourist attraction. HOWEVER, security is very tight here so in order to get through the security gate located BEFORE the bridge to this island hotel, one must be either a registered guest or a restaurant guest with confirmed reservations.

    Burj Al Arab is a luxury hotel located in Dubai, sometimes described as "the world's first Seven-Star hotel". Burj al-Arab was the dream of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan, which turned out to be a physical reality years later in Dubai. The tower that resembles the sail of dhow. The hotel rests on an artificial island constructed 280 m (920 ft) offshore. Burj al-Arab has the most luxurious interior imaginable, the nights at Burj al-Arab start at $1000. The Royal Suite costs $28000 per night. It hosts a helipad (helicopter trips to the center of Dubai or to the Dubai International Airport), where Andre Agassi had a tennis game with Roger Federer. The majestic building is recognized as the symbol of Dubai.

    The design is one of the best i have seen. This location sets it against the sea and city like a pillar or oasis away from the busy world. The services are perfect, the staff probably the best trained and most helpful i have ever encountered. It was inspiring to experience the level of quality of perfection in services the Emirates has aspired to achieve. They are surely standing proud and rightfully so for the level of perfection for which they are building there lovely country. I believe everyone should visit the Emirates and observe the awesome developments on this strip of Sand.

    Went here on my honeymoon and loved it. A bit over the top (surprise surprise). The decor is definitely more tacky than tasteful -- a lot of gold and a big mirror above the bed. That said, hard not to find the place entertaining.

    The views are wonderful and the rooms are massive. You probably need to stay a few nights just to figure out how to use in the in-room remote / entertainment system. The 24 hour butler service is impressive -- they will even un-pack / pack for you.

    We enjoyed the beach club and the in-room amenities are over the top -- think full bottles of Hermes. The food and beverage facilities are good but insanely expensive.

    The biggest drawbacks are the small pool area and high cost. Guests get access to other Jumeirah facilties in the area and the location is very convenient for beach hopping / shopping along the cost.

    A very special trip for my 40th birthday. We thoroughly recommend having afternoon tea here. Book it well before you go, and its fine to have it just in the piano bar. Fabulous and glam way to spend a few hours.

    Its a must to see this hotel. The view inside was AMAZING. The architecture of this building is just a WOW.
    Just remember you need reservations to go inside the hotel, if not you will be stopped at the front gates. Once your inside the interior design has a lot of curves. You won't see a lot of straight lines, but it all goes together.
    When you leave, unless you have a car you could be escorted out to the front gates on a golf cart to waved down your taxi.
