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

    1. 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

    2. 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!

  • Helipad

    3. Helipad

    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

    4. 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

    5. 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!

Planning Your Visit

  • 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 should I visit?
    24 hours a day
  • Is it expensive?
    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 information

    • 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.

Excelente tour! Cumple con todo lo indicado en su detalle. Nuestro guía Adnan fue muy servicial y atento. Además de contarnos de manera muy completa la historia de Dubai nos ha sacado fotos increíbles que quedarán para nuestro recuerdo! Tks Adnan, you are the best!

Amazing experience throughout. The views were spectacular. The captain was very friendly and helpful in taking pictures. Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone!

Great tour. Somethings I could have skipped and others added but, the guide was awesome and we saw some good sites and he took cool pictures.

Très belle matinée qui m'a permise de voir sous d'autres angles certains sites. Merci au guide pour toutes ces explications!

Easy to find with an Uber and excellent service. Some great pictures at the iconic Burj Al Arab also!
