Combining luxury, futuristic design and ancient traditions, this hotel is the essence of Dubai.

A distinctive sail-shaped figure in the distance draws closer as you make your way along a sweeping causeway. From the moment you step into the glamorous atrium, you’re sure to be enchanted by the sheer opulence of this indulgent hotel – from the dancing fountains and glass walls filled with marine creatures that seem to head endlessly upward, to the iPads that act as your personal virtual concierge service – welcome to the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, an icon of modern Dubai.

There are nine restaurants within the hotel, six of which are award winning. The signature Culinary Flight Experience is one not to be missed, enabling you to explore the hotel’s array of restaurants and bars course by course. Dinner begins at Skyview Bar for a quick aperitif, followed by a selection of sampling menus at Al Muntaha, Al Iwan and Junsui. From here, a delicious main awaits at Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara. The pièce de résistance greets you in the stunning Sahn Eddar in the form of a decadent dessert.

The Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Terrace is the latest addition to this world-famous hotel, featuring a freshwater pool, sun loungers, 32 cabanas, a restaurant and a bar. Each of the hotel’s breathtaking dual-level suites come with a host of opulent facilities and amenities with a multitude of additions including 24-hour butler service, optional in-suite breakfast and 21-inch iMac. While the Deluxe Suites have a separate entrance, Jacuzzi and views over the Arabian Gulf, the Panoramic Suites are larger with 180-degree floor-to-ceiling views over the Gulf and city.
