this hotel is absolutely wonderful and once you have stayed here you will never want to go anywhere else and will want to return again and again. We have already booked again for October. The sky bar at night is not to be missed

We had a wonderful afternoon tea at the Burj Al Arab as part of our family holiday.

The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and the venue was incredible.

5 stars from me.

all services and atmosphere is beyond words can describe.
However, the risotto was a bit salty to my mom which we are celebrating the mother's day.
the staff Christine was really kind and helpful and she did ask us whether we would like to wait for another plate for exchange... but we are too tired after the long flight.

Porbably, they would needed to ask the guests with one additional question:
Normally there are a bit salty with the seafood cuisine,
would you prefer the normal cooking receipt or less dressing...

After all, it is still an unforgetab;y experience for our family trip.

一個難忘的高級七星飯店晚餐
唯一美中不足的是我們套餐裡的義式燉飯對剛好慶祝母親節的我母親來說有點鹹
說不上不美味,只是海鮮原有的鹹加上料理在撒上去的鹽
隊有點年紀的人來說可能真的鹹了點
服務人員christine 非常nice親切有禮,非常體諒我們長途飛行後有時差想吃跑早點回去
上菜速度剛剛好

還是推薦大家要賞往事先訂位,
可能餐廳需要多詢問稍有年紀的用餐客人其對甜鹹的偏好程度..

It's the one place that checks a lot of boxes: afternoon tea is just delightful, the Skyview Bar is amazing, Cocktails in the lobby, costly but so very, very worth it and of course the bistro cafe outside...just divine!

Have been at least 6 times since my arrival here in Dubai as an Expat but the place is changing.......way too many 'tourists' coming in on coach loads carrying fast food burgers, drinks, wrappers and even packed sandwiches in their hands. Please Burj Al Arab, if you bring people to this establishment, they have to eat the food that is served in the Burj.....we are paying for it, why can't they? They stand around the fountains and have even sat in the lobby with tacky and greasy fast food set up on the tables. This does not create an ambient environment for those of us who rewards ourselves with trips to the Burj! Get your act together guys.....This is discrimination.....you have enough security to ask them to leave their food and beverages on the buses!

I'm in no rush to return...simply becuase you let this get out of hand.

We had a lovely time at the Burj Arab. From the moment we arrived at the gate, to the greeting in front of the lift and the waiters, staff were lovely and friendly.

I paid extra to guarantee a window seat. We may have got away without paying it on the day we went as it was quite quiet. Worth it though.

Seven courses, a glass of bubbly and a choice of teas were all included.

It was a little hazy on the day we attended but it got clearer as the time went on. We must have been there for around two hours, we weren't rushed at all.

A great experience. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.
