Choose your preferred departure time when you book. Then, depart your central Dubai hotel in a private, air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the 7-star Burj Al Arab, standing on its own artificial island off the shores of Jumeirah.
On arrival, take in the glittering exterior of the hotel, designed to resemble the shape of a billowing sail on an Arab dhow (sailboat). Then, make your way inside to the beautiful Sahn Eddar lobby lounge restaurant, set in the magnificent atrium.
Admire the opulent surroundings of gold leaf, marble, and mosaics, and pause to view the stunning water fountains in the foyer. Gaze up to the top of the soaring atrium — the world’s tallest at 590 feet (180 meters) high — and take your seat in the glass-walled Sahn Eddar in readiness for your 7-course feast.
Relax to gentle Arabic and classical music as you’re served with an impressive set menu of sweet and savory delicacies. The culinary delights are crafted by the hotel’s pastry chefs who have drawn on influences from across the world to produce an afternoon tea that rivals the world's best.
Treats may include everything from fish and meat cuts to handmade sandwiches, warm scones, petit fours, French pastries, and palate-refreshing sorbets, all served with tea and coffee and unlimited sodas and fresh juices.
As you eat, watch the fountains playing and leaping in the atrium, soak in the refined yet relaxed atmosphere, and enjoy the views through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Afterward, take your leave and enjoy a convenient and comfortable private transfer back to your hotel.
