Burj Al Arab Jumeirah

Iconic Dubai landmark that’s a bucket-list destination
  • 3

Time Out Says

When it comes to Dubai landmarks, it doesn’t get much more iconic than the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. The grand, sail shaped building opened in 1999 and has been a symbol of opulence and exclusivity ever since. You’ll need a reservation for the hotel just to cross the bridge to the property, so if you’re looking to see inside the world-famous landmark you’ll need to be staying or dining here.

Service, as you’d expect is key, with  1,600 staff members tending to just 202 rooms. The most basic of which is a one-bedroom single suite that’s 170 sq m and comes with its own personal butler service as well as a choice of 14 different types of pillow to help you catch those Zs.

Every one boasts an ocean view and access to the Burj Al Arab private beach and exclusive swimming pool on the terrace set out to sea, as well as free access to neighbouring Wild Wadi Waterpark. There’s also the luxurious Talise Spa to unwind in.

If you get peckish, there are ten restaurants and bars including seafood restaurant Al Mahara. It’s housed in an aquarium for an extra-special experience.

For more chilled-out vibes head to Scape by the pool, or if you’re in the mood for afternoon tea book into the Skyview Bar on the 27th floor. Set across from that is bar Gold on 27 – decked out in glimmering furnishings and affording views across the city.

If you want to feel like royalty, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is designed to do just that.
