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

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

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

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

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

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!

Burj Al Arab: Our Tips

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 to visit
    24 hours a day
  • What is the price?
    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 tips
    • 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.

Great experience packed in about 4 hours!

Hannah and Houssain did a great job with this tour! Hit all the tourist spots and great photo locations. They shared some of the off the beaten path locations as well. Hannah shared lots of history and background. Best use of the layover time! There timing was aligned with my needs and ended at the Dubai fountain display. A wonderful ending to the tour!
