Beautiful design

Did not get to enter as I was not aware that you needed a reservation to go in however just to see from the outside was enough. Stunning.

Far too expensive for a normal tourist. Also can not enter the property unless having a reservation for accommodation or restaurant. Frankly speaking, we didn't have a deep pocket & hence viewed the property from Jemeirah Public beach & had some photo session. No doubt it is a beautiful architecture and worth viewing, even if from a distance.

take a dhow ride at Madinat Jumeirah and dine there to catch wonderful light show that the building has to offer at night!

we did not stay and just walk in the beach It is very beautiful place. The burj al arab itself and the sea surrounding it. We just have a free time after work and decided to pass by to unwind and its truly relaxing to watch the sunset .perfect way to end up a busy day.

Okay, to be honest we didn't stay here, it's far too expensive! We had a drink or two there and then retreated with a severely dented wallet. We just relaxed on the beach in front of it, swam, took photos and gazed at the place. it is that pretty. Sometimes in life you just have to sit back and enjoy... More

On our short visit to dubai we decided to have the Friday Brunch at this fabulous hotel. We were whisked up to the 27th floor where we were seated on a window table overlooking the 'Palm'. Although this Brunch is by no means inexpensive it is well worth the experience. There is food for every palate even my fussy husband... More

WOW! What an experience. We booked afternoon tea and had an afternoon of sheer decadence starting with a glass of champagne and just got better. A culinary delight and we devoured the tasty treats. Fantastic staff who made us feel special from the moment we walked in the door until we left. Would highly recommend this as a must do... More

If you dont have the $1500 or so to stay at Burj Al Arab just take a picture from outside and call it a day. Dont pay hundreds dollars for High Tea to get inside the gate.

You can't go into the hotel unless you have a restaurant or accommodation reservation, but it's definitely worth going to Jumeirah (public) beach to get the best views of the hotel and great photos.
