On our arrival to Dubai, we started to read the 'Dubai Rough Guide', to get a feel of what was worth and what wasn't... so it came as a shock when we read that one of the most iconic buildings in Dubai is restricted to guests only. The hotel is surrounded by several other expensive hotels (not as expensive though),... More

Wow, wow, wow, it may seem expensive however you are paying for a once in a life time experience not just an afternoon tea. From the moment you approach the Burj to the moment you walk out it is nothing short of magnificent. The bits in between we will let you experience them first hand. We definitely recommend.

Only register guest have allowed inside the Burj Al Arab Hotel, which is priced too high for the average person. But wait you can get in for an afternoon tea party for about $200 per person and yet still need a reservation.

This is an amazing building from the outside. Our tour guide told us that people cannot go in unless they are a hotel guest or have dinner reservations, so I was disappointed about that. But still a must see, even from the outside and at a distance.

Wow wow and wow . Great experience at the Burj 200m up in the sky bar . Staff couldn't do enough and knew everything about the hotel . When the first course came out , I thought we were going to be going to a restaurant straight after afternoon tea but we didn't finish the 7 courses just too much... More

My husband and I went today for the Skyview Bar Afternoon Tea. It was an experience I will never forget. The staff are amazing and we were looked after so well. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a window seat and because we were celebrating my birthday I was given a chocolate cake and rose. I loved every minute... More

Book a reservation at the Burj A Arab, get a a hard copy of the reservation to show when you get there, ta king a cab there is the best option. Enjoy the sights and one of the tallest Atrium that I have seen.

It looks splendid by the sea shore lying amidst the shallow waters. Unfortunately I had to be content with viewing it from outside only. It makes a great background for a selfie though.
