Full accommodation information

Consistently voted one of the world's most luxurious hotels, Burj Al Arab, Dubai, soars 321 metres into the clear blue sky from its man-made island.

From the moment your helicopter touches down on the private helipad, or your chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce delivers you to the opulence of the world's tallest atrium, you will know you have arrived somewhere very special indeed.

Designed to look like the billowing sail of a dhow - the traditional Arab sailing ship - this Jumeirah hotel is truly iconic and instantly recognisable, dominating the city's skyline and providing an opulent location for a luxury Dubai holiday.

Dining comes with a choice of restaurants, including the signature Al Mahara where you can dine on exquisite seafood as you gaze into a floor-to-ceiling aquarium. Alternatively, 200 metres above sea level, the Al Muntaha presents you with mouth-watering cuisines accompanied by stunning views.

Afternoon tea at Burj Al Arab is regarded as a Dubai 'must-do'. Guests can choose to enjoy their delicacies in the commanding surrounds of the atrium, with its gold-plated pillars rising heavenwards, or in the dizzying heights of the Skyview Bar, on the hotel's very top floor. If tea's not your thing, you can also enjoy a cocktail here while enjoying mesmerising views.

Suites are lavishly appointed with marble, gold and exquisite fabrics in abundance, all featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and benefiting from 24-hour butler service. The 18 Panoramic Suites offer particularly breathtaking views of the glistening Arabian Gulf, due to their enviable location at the corner of the hotel. The luxury reaches its pinnacle in the opulent 780 square metres Royal Suite, complete with its own lift and home theatre.

With nine signature restaurants and bars, Burj Al Arab is an epicurean’s paradise. But you shouldn’t just expect phenomenal food at this luxury Dubai resort – a great deal of importance is also placed on the delivery of exceptional experiences. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that guests here can dine in the world’s tallest atrium or beside a stunning floor-to-ceiling aquarium. Savour everything from authentic Arabic cuisine to contemporary European fare in some of the most fantastic dining rooms in the world.

Activities at Burj Al Arab are also plentiful. Splash around in the brilliant Wild Wadi Water Park, let your children have the time of their life at the Sinbad’s Kids’ Club, explore all that Dubai has to offer with a range of excursions, or simply lounge on a gorgeous beach.

The Burj Al Arab takes a comprehensive approach to conservation.

With plenty of recycling bins throughout the hotel, double glazed windows to reduce the need for central heating, as well as motion-controlled electricity, the Burj Al Arab has successfully reduced its environmental footprint.

One of the hotel’s most remarkable sustainability initiatives is The Turtle Rehabilitation Sanctuary. This incredible project has led to the release of 1,950 rehabilitated turtles back into their natural habitat – a testament to Burj Al Arab’s commitment to marine conservation.

Gourmet Experiences

With Burj Al Arab’s vast choice of restaurants and bars, there’s something to please every palette. Indulge at ‘underwater’ Al Mahara built around an aquarium, where fine seafood dishes are curated by Chef Andrea Migliaccio from Capri’s two-Michelin star Ristorante L’Olivo. Choose the five-course degustation menu for delicious dishes like sea urchin risotto and scallops with quail eggs and caviar. For a digestif or two, the GILT bar on the 27th floor serves artfully crafted cocktails and succulent small plates.

Honeymoons & Romance

Glamorous, luxurious, and special; the Burj Al Arab is a superb choice for your whirlwind honeymoon to the Middle East. Make your post-nuptials getaway truly unforgettable at one of the most iconic hotels in the world and experience its lavish hospitality.

Setting the stage for romance, this seven-star skyscraper hotel boasts unparalleled views over Dubai and the Persian Gulf. Head to Skyview Bar on the 27th floor and take in the incredible cityscape together, while sipping on signature cocktails.

Book a table for two at the hotel’s famous restaurant, Ristorante L’Olivo at Al Mahara, and experience the magic of dining underwater. Indulge on grilled scallops and tuna tartare with your date as shoals of brightly coloured fish glide past you. The aquarium lighting also gives it an intimate feel, making it the perfect setting for loved-up newlyweds.

For a honeymoon as grand as the big day itself, nowhere compares to the Burh Al Arab.
