Burj Al Arab

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: The iconic symbol of Dubai, the Burj Al Arab lives on its own island, and is a destination in itself, towering over the exciting, vibrant, and ever-flourishing city.

History: Construction began on this landmark hotel in 1994, and since then, it has slowly but surely grown into the most luxurious hotel in the world, frequented by royalty and celebrities alike.

Service: Often referred to as the world’s only 7-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab’s service is quite literally in a class by itself, with perks that include a 24-carat gold iPad for each guest’s use upon check-in.

The Burj offers a range of the most lavish facilities one might expect from such a brand, from an expansively luxurious spa, to a private beach equipped with plush sun loungers, and even a fun kids’ club to keep the little ones occupied while Mom and Dad take a break for themselves.

Assawan Spa

Spaced over two levels, this tranquil, luxurious and vibrantly-decorated spa oasis is the ideal place for guests to enjoy an afternoon of pampering. Treatments range from massages to organic body wraps, with touches of Asian traditional healing and modern techniques.

Fitness Center

The Burj features a fully-equipped fitness center that is available for all guests. Guests may also choose from a full range of fitness programs that include physical fitness instruction and training, healthy dining, spa treatments, and personal mentoring.

Private Swimming Pool and Beach

This unique feature is located on the Burj's ground floor, featuring an open-air infinity pool and swim-up bar. The private beach is available for the use of all guests, located on the mainland across the causeway, containing comfortable sun beds that sit upon luscious white sand.

Sinbad's Kids' Club

This complimentary child care service is offered to guests and spa members, and is fully-staffed by professional child minders at all times. It includes a playroom, soft toys, board games, bean bags, TVs, and even a cozy bedroom for nap time.

The Burj offers an unforgettable culinary journey through its nine unique restaurants that offer guests an archipelago of exciting flavors and the finest of service.
