One of the most amazing hotel structure ever, the shape and the design just breathtaking. Even from distance away it will wow you, inside is another story. Even all this year, this still one of the best hotel in the world. Witness in person is a must when you in Dubai.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.

Haven't gone in so can't say much about it, but it still is one of the icon's of Dubai's lavishness. Brightly lit at night and impossible to enter without paying at least for a breakfast ($65USD), the Burj al Arab is in a world of its own.

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.

Like most people, this hotel is WAY out of my price range. However, it is a an iconic symbol of Dubai. There are several spots in the Jumeirah Beach area where you can snap a picture or two of the Burj Al Arab. The 360 bar is a perfect place to get some great shots of the Dubai skyline. If you absolutely feel like you are going to cry if you can't see it from inside... I'll let ya in on a secret. If you're willing to pay around $150 (check their website to see current pricing) you can attend a tea in the afternoons there.

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.Recommended for:

The "normal" Deluxe suite offers an entrance area, bar, large work desk with free internet connection and a fax machine, sitting area with 42'' plasma-TV, living room with TV set, eating area, fully equipped kitchen, baggage store room, masterbed room, bathroom with bath tub (whirlpool) and shower + 2 washbasins.

You can use the electronical curtains operated by an multifunctional remote-control which is also used for the TV set. You get your own butler who is responsible for all your requests and whishes.

Besides a two-floor room with a jacuzzi, huge TV, an amazing interior design, and local sweets being delivered to your room every morning, the hotel offers you an amazing beach, interesting activities (karaoke, bar, sauna, Thai massage and many others) and moreover, a jet parking on the roof of the hotel, from which you can take a trip all over the beautiful city of Dubai (for a reasonable price, of cource)! The building has a beautiful shape of a sail, which your eyes can always enjoy seeing everytime you come back. The service is on top, once you enter the building you notice not only the professionalism of the staff, but also a great hall with big aquariums in the walls full of exotic fishes, which you probably won't be able to take your eyes off for the first few minutes. Overall, if you're looking for a perfect hotel, Burj Al Arab is not it. But if you're looking for a hotel that is beyond your dreams, welcome aboard!

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.
