Slow start today given last night antics, Guy is suffering a little this morning. Wow! Now I had heard a lot about this mall but it truly is amazing. We were warned that you could easily spend a day here, I reckon you need more. Thousands of shops, Sega world, Aquarium, underwater Zoo, Ice rink, movies, Burj Khalifa (tallest building in the world …

Monday. Darren flew home on EK407 and Essam was Operating on the flight. So Mel and I were husband free. $$$. We settled the children with the nannys and went to the Madinat which is by the Burj al Arab. It was in an old street style set up more appealing to tourists. The style and layout was fantastic! Didn't buy anything here except great coffee …

2nd Day in Dubai

Day 2 in Dubai. After sleeping for 14 hours plus we arose and proceeded to breakfast and had some strange but nice assorted items. Took the hotel bus to the beach at Jumeirah which is a popular spot for locals and tourists to swim at. Bloody hot with temperature in the low 40's. Didn't take our bathers, but probably a wise choice as we would have …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Dubai

    Arabian magic


    Don`t think about it just go!!!

    You really won`t regret it. A once in a lifetime experience ?? I think not i`m going back for sure.

    Warning! Do not entrust your credit card


    Hotel OK. But I gave my credit card at the outset and then paid when I left; three weeks later the authorisation they took initially was still blocking out my card, so I could not use it. Seven phone calls to Dubai later and I am still waiting.

    Be warned. Do not leave without seeing them remove the authorisation first. Or pay by cash; or stay somewhere better, like Sandy Lane, Barbados.

    Absolute splendour


    Stayed at the Burj for 3 nights in Aug. If anyone is wondering about staying at this hotel, but unsure about the cost and whether its all worth it, (as many a good hotel can be found on Jumeirah Beach), dont hesitate, book up now and GO!!!!

    First impressions - WOW!


    This is one hotel you must stay in during your lifetime. We stayed here for our first wedding anniversary following a week in the Maldives.



    Amazing. What a place to spend a few nights (simply because you couldnt afford to spend longer there!) The colour schemes are the most hideous, over the top mixtures you could ever come accross, but yet they make it stunningly incredible. It is luxury in a category of its own. You can have your luggage packed and unpacked, and your bath run for you. The service is truly amazing. From the concierge who remembered my sons name immediately, and greeted him with a huge smile and 'high fives' every time we went through the door, to the beach staff, who were preparing our sun beds, towels, water to drink and spray and napkins, as we walked over the sand. The staff here have exceptional training. I could write pages about it! It is truly a hotel that should be visited at least once in a lifetime.

    Live like a movie star!


    Uppers: Most incredible service, fabulous space/gadgetry/privacy in your room, REALLY fantastic Spa...and everything else!

    Unforgettable hotel fantasy


    I had 3 nights in Dubai just to stay at the Burj. The city is hideous and failed to meet expectations. The hotel is a fantasy enclave and topped expectations: this is not a mere upgrade from 5-star, but in a class of its own, starting from the choreographed lobby fountain. I took a panoramic suite, all 2700 sq ft meaning acres of carpet (compared to your usual 400 sq ft 5-star hotelroom) which all occupy the corners of this unique tower's dominating structure. Due to the bowing outwards, the biggest panoramic suites are floors 8-15. (The website quotes around £750 per night but I got a package equating to £420 per night.) The top to bottom glass walls over 2 levels give a stratospheric view of the ocean one side and flat relatively unenchanting cityscape the other. Unlike the standard duplex, these are open plan suites with similarly luxurious furnishings (the gold fitments are confined to the royal floor), bar, business centre (incl laptop) and huge jacuzzi bathroom with unlimited Hermes and Rocabar products. Sailing up and down the sweeping staircase, it took an hour to get familiar with everything escorted round by a check-in page. Each floor of 14 suites has a 24 hr rota of tailcoated butlers endlessly at your service (so you don't have to tip any individual if you don't want to). The squint down the world's biggest atrium is vertiginous - partly due to the universally psychedelic decor. Staff are unctuous, especially in the restaurants where you need hardly lift a finger. Of course the 27th floor eatery's view is a tourist attraction but the food standard, though good enough, is nothing special. Likewise the 'subterranean' seafood restaurant which, at basement level, is descended by a fake submarine capsule with crap underwater video graphics. I just remember the lounges, the gorgeous spa/swimming pool complex, the gadget-littered suite - and of course, the complimentary wine, and boxes of dates and sweetmeats which gave a heartening welcome. Yet in Dubai they're planning something even more bizarre...

    Everyone must try this once in there life....


    Iv'e stayed in some class hotels around the world, Words cannot describe this one you must see it for yourself. went 2003 going back 2004.

    Pretty Classy. . .


    Well, I just found this review site and did a search for Burj where we stayed for 2 nights in 2001 I think. We'd been in the Maldives and came here to finish things off for a few nights. Because Maldives are very layed back, we felt very underdressed. This place is definately not a casual kind of place and the guests will definately be checking you out. What can I say. The hotel is amazing! It really is. The standard duplux rooms are huge and no expense has been spared. Yes, the Hermes products from the bathroom are pretty neat and our bulter showed us some of the VERY expensive suites for royalty and such. It took a bit of getting used to the huge mirror above the bed, though :)

    Happy Burjday


    I was surprised by my wife with a night at the Burj for my birthday. I can not say enough good things about this place. (as price implies $800US) We were in dubai for 2 weeks with a friend who works there and we were picked up by the Rolls Royce at his villa (small fee for being out of downtown) and the driver was so professional and came bearing roses for my wife. He pointed out places of interest as we drove and when we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by no less than 6 people to get our bags and escort us inside. They all greeted us by name and welcomed us (nice touch) Two more people greeted us inside and offered us a hot towel to refresh ourselves after our long journey (all of 25 minutes but good for air travellers) and the best almond stuffed dates I ever had, only one actually. haha You do not check in as you arrive, you are shown around the breath-taking atrium area and go to your room floor to check in at a desk near the elevator. This is the person who takes care of anything you may need during your stay. This is the best system ever for checking in, for the sake of a few extra people, you just don't have any line up. We were shown to our room and it's features and were introduced to our butler, he was bearing gifts as well. There was a bottle of wine and canapes waiting for us and my wife sniffed out the chocolates (mmmmm) in the leather bound box. This place has everything, it would take days to describe the whole stay even though it was only a day. Short version: bedrooms were oppulent and had the most amazing view of Dubai. Bathrooms were awesome and if you like Hermes products you have your pick. Spiral marble staircase up to the bedroom is a photo op you must take a picture of. Living room was huge and has the same floor to ceiling views as the bedroom. Computer office area is great to email people to tell how fantastic the place is. Gadgets for curtains, info, and plasma screen t.v.'s Butler is at your beckon call. When we went to the aquarium style restaurant, no sooner were we out the door than another guy greeted us and asked if he could escort us to the restaurant for dinner. They know what you want before you do. The meal was expensive but was worth every penny, the 4 of us were totally in awe. And as an added surprise the chef made a special little gourmet cake/dessert for my birthday. All the facilities are second to none and most employees have been there since the first day so they are all very well trained. There were some VIP milling around but most of the time you have complete privacy and freedom. The bar at the top ( sticks out over the water 26 floors up) was very good and the service again was beyond excellent , when a window table opened up the polite bus person offered to move our drinks and complimentary sweets and nuts to there no problem we just stood up and in a flash it was done. They are all just so eager to give the best service. The hotel is expensive but there are no hidden charges and freebies and services just make this a luxury stay that is worth every cent , so indulge yourself for a night or two and even try the sister resorts near by. We loved the hotel and loved Dubai in general , it is totally safe there and there is no crime period except the traffic is scary fast. We went in January during the shopping festival and if you like shopping that is the time to go. The only regrets we had were not going to Wild Wadi and not having enough luggage to take everything home. Anyone needing more details can email me.
