Luxury in my life! Jun 08, 2011
I felt gratified to have experience the most iconic and one of the most luxurious hotel in the world - Burj Al Arab! It is indeed memorable, and unforgettable experience of elegance and sophistication where you can experience the highest level of personalized service. Everywhere I look, depicts rich, rich, richness!

Really relished the magnificent suite; had a heavy iftar at Iwan Resto; a drink at the skyview bar; a lil party in the our suite; an in-suite dine at wee hour in the morning?. In the morning, a quick walk to the beach; stayed in the private pool for hours of chatting; had a nap under an umbrella by the pool fronting the beach!

It was a perfect weekend! =)

A coffin has no pockets May 07, 2011
Dubai is ..Dubai, unique, very expensive, but well I like to spend few days a year i winter time because it dry, clean and no risk of raining unless you are really unlucky!!!

Burj Al Arab frankly does not deserve the price, at least full price because there are many ways to get a promotion by flying Emirates and getting a package trip ,for instance.

The suites are a sort of oriental Mille et une nuits, only service it's not a 7 stars classe as the hotel claims, but ok find yourself une excuse to spend 2 or 3 nights the once in your life

Soooo much luxury May 30, 2011
This hotel is pure luxury.

Allthough the price is high it is full value for money from the moment you enter the hotel, you see your suite until you sadly leave it again. You have anything you need during the whole stay, and the breakfast buffet is awesome.

the world's most luxurious hotel Oct 27, 2010
had the perfect weekend

i find it quite difficult to review this hotel, so i copy/pasted the below mentioned from their official website, kindly note a couple of disadvantages at the bottom.

In its relatively short tenure on the Dubai coastline this legendary and symbolic hotel has attracted international attention and awe, ensuring its place as one of the most photographed structures in the world, and consistently voted the worlds most luxurious hotel. Designed to resemble a billowing sail, Burj Al Arab soars to a height of 321 metres, dominating the Dubai skyline. Illuminated at night by choreographed lighting representing water and fire – Burj Al Arab is simply individual, inspired, impressive.

This all-suite luxury hotel in Dubai reflects the very finest that the world has to offer. With a discreet in-suite check-in, private reception desk on every floor and a brigade of highly trained butlers, you can be assured of the ultimate in personal service throughout your stay. Upgrade your experience at Burj Al Arab with your chauffeur driven Rolls Royce.

BUT, there are a couple of flows.

first floor's TV screen was small considering the space, it was also fixed to the wall not allowing any rotation to suite your viewing angle and it was sunk in a very nice frame the would make it even less entertaining watching,

the suites are not equipped with a high quality sound system, you can easily hear sound impurities when having volume at max, the sound system is not the best if you are planning to through a party.

enjoy :)

The best hotel in Dubai and possibly the most expensive hotel in the world is the Burj al Arab. The hotel is built to resemble a giant sail and sits on a man-made island just off Jumerah Beach in Dubai. It is linked by an underwater glass "elevator" to the mainland lobby. Just to get into the lobby at the hotel itself costs $50 USD (for serious gawkers only). A room complete with full-time butler will set you back $1000 USD if you find it on the cheap, and $7500 USD if you want a nice view. Oh, and that come with a complementary helicopter ride from the airport, if you want. The hotel is prime, prime, prime, but if you ask me it's all way over the top. It seems like things are priced just so that you can go back home and brag to you Hollywood want-to-be friends how much you spent. It does have a great location (you would expect that, with those prices). It's just down the road from the very nice Madanaat Mall which has been built in traditional Arab architecture and has a great artificial canal that weaves through the shops with views of the Burj. The hotel is also close to the Mall of the Emirates where you can ski and play in the snow indoors, while the sun blazes at 120 degrees outside.

It is defintely expensive, but it doesn't cost USD 2.500 (or not the whole year). I payed EUR 800 for one suite (one night) and got a "normal" great suite. ;-)

The Burj al Arab is the tallest and most luxerious suite-only hotel of the world (self-)awarded with 7 stars. The smallest suite offers a space of 170m² and is furnished as luxury as possible. The "normal" Deluxe suite offers an entrance area, bar, large work desk with free WLAN internet connection (and a Compaq laptop computer for free use) and a fax machine, sitting area with 42'' plasma-TV, living room with TV set, eating area, fully equipped kitchen, baggage store room, masterbed room, bathroom with bath tub (whirlpool) and shower + 2 washbasins. You have 3-times laminated wall-to-wall windows (nobody can look in) with a marvelous view over the sea. All in all you have a minimum of 3 TV-sets and 3 minibars with an good and international selection. To darken the room you can use the electronical curtains operated by an multifunctional remote-control which is also used for the TV set.The service is unrivalled at all. You get your own butler who is responsible for all your requests and whishes. The ambience is great and you'll enjoy your stay there.

Euro 400 is actually much cheaper than i expected. I was at Arabian courtyard for 1200 Dhs a night , which should be around 400euro, but it was a double room so only 200euro a person.
