Burj Al-Arab

The sail-like silhouette of the Burj Al-Arab has become a symbol of Dubai and all its opulence. Opened in 1999, the ultra luxury hotel boasts plenty of superlatives, including its five-star status (although, this is often taken a step further, as many refer to the hotel as a seven-star establishment).

While it takes a particularly hefty pocketbook to book a stay at the Burj Al-Arab, visitors have plenty of other options for viewing and touring the sumptuous landmark, which can be spotted from numerous spots around Dubai. Snap a shot of the soaring hotel jutting out to sea on a city sightseeing tour or on a boat cruise.

To get inside, choose from the hotel’s many bars and restaurants available for reservation. The Sahn Eddar Lobby Lounge offers a decadent seven-course afternoon tea service, set to the sounds of live classical music with views of the hotel’s amazing atrium, while the 27th-floor Skyview Bar and its floor-to-ceiling glass windows mix cocktails with stellar views over the Dubai skyline and Arabian Gulf. Hungry visitors can book an Arabic lunch inside the world’s tallest atrium at Al Iwan, or go for a more international menu with views over the city at the 27th-floor Al Muntaha. For a romantic dining experience, book a three-course seafood dinner at Al Mahara, a restaurant with its own floor-to-ceiling aquarium.

Insider's Tip: Grabbing cocktails at the Skyview Bar proves the most budget-friendly option inside the Burj Al-Arab, but it should be noted that you must book ahead to get past lobby security.

Practical Info
