Acknowledged to be the world’s most opulent hotel, the Burj Al Arab has already become an international legend. Its distinctive sail-like structure, designed to resemble the billowing spinnaker of a traditional Arabian dhow, soars above the Arabian Gulf, and draws attention for miles around. The hotel inhabits its own private man-made island, and dominates the entire Dubai coastline.
If you are a guest at the Burj Al Arab, you don’t have to wait till you arrive at the hotel to experience its unique luxury – this starts at the airport, where you are met by a hotel representative, and taken to a private lounge where you are offered drinks and sweets. You then have the choice of being transported to the hotel by vintage Rolls Royce, or by helicopter – the hotel has its own private helipad. In the Rolls, you are driven over the private bridge up to the stunning frontage, which is illuminated by choreographed lighting representing fire and water, and changing from white to multicoloured over 30-minute cycles.
Once inside, you could well be over-awed by the vast atrium, one of the tallest in the world, with buttresses and soaring spaces, and by the colourful lobby area with its stunning Islamic designs. There is nothing as ordinary as a reception desk in the lobby. You check in privately in your suite, after you are escorted there by your own private butler.
Many of the suites have their own private dining room, but it would be a pity to miss out on the sumptuous dining experience provided by the hotel’s nine restaurants, many of which hold international awards. Especially impressive is the Al Mahara, the name of which translates as the Oyster Shell, and which is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling aquariums where you can watch the fish swimming by as you dine. The menu of the Al Mahara is as luxurious – and expensive – as the rest of the hotel, and includes oysters, lobsters and caviar.
Alternatively, you can be dazzled by the view from the Al Muntaha, meaning the Ultimate or Highest, on the 27th floor, offering mind-blowing vistas over the Gulf and the city, and an attractive European menu. The crystal-studded Junsui Restaurant offers oriental fare, while the Al Iwan, or Royal Hall, enables you to enjoy a sumptuous Lebanese menu while sitting amid palatial columns and enjoying a spectacular sea view – the Al Iwan is sometimes called the 7-star restaurant in the 7-star hotel. If you really can’t decide, the hotel’s Culinary Flight Experience allows you to sample different restaurants course by course, beginning with pre-dinner drinks at the 200-metre-high Skyview Bar.
