Jumeirah Road, Dubai

The Basics

Besides shelling out to stay the night at the Burj Al-Arab, visitors have plenty of other options for viewing and touring the sumptuous landmark, which can be spotted from numerous spots around Dubai. Snap a shot of the soaring Jumeirah Beach hotel jutting out to sea on a city sightseeing tour or on a boat cruise.

To get inside, choose from the hotel's many bars and restaurants available for reservation. The Sahn Eddar Lobby Lounge offers a decadent seven-course afternoon tea service, set to the sounds of live classical music with views of the hotel's amazing atrium, while the 27th-floor Skyview Bar and its floor-to-ceiling glass windows mix cocktails with stellar views over the Dubai skyline and Persian Gulf. Hungry visitors can book a traditional Arabic lunch inside the world's tallest atrium at Al Iwan, or go for a more international menu with views over the city at the 27th-floor Al Muntaha. For a romantic dining experience, book a three-course seafood dinner at Al Mahara, a restaurant with its own floor-to-ceiling aquarium. Tours of Dubai city often include a stop for photos at the Burj Al-Arab, or you can book a tour that includes afternoon tea or lunch at one of the restaurants. For a different take on the views of the UAE city, book a helicopter tour.

Very nice guys and for sure worth the money. Very helpful with taking pictures and exact back on the time I requested to go to next program. When we arrived I was a bit in doubt because it looked a bit sloppy but it was very friendly and nice. Don t forget to take ID with you.

Inside Burj Al Arab Experience- Dubai's Famous Iconic Hotel
When visiting Dubai, the iconic Burj al Arab is a must see. Initially, we wanted to reserve a table in one of the restaurants, but they were fully booked. This tour however turned out to be a great substitute. You actually see more than you see when going to a restaurant, since they also show you the Royal Suite and other places you can't see as a restaurant guest or even as a hotel guest. Absolutely recommended!

Dubai Frame with the Afternoon Tea at Burj Al Arab
This was worth the money. The frame was really interesting. We got some nice photos up there. The tea at the Burg was fantastic. The tea itself was very nice and it was really great to get into the hotel and to see its opulence up close. It is a really fantastic property.

Fun but bumpy and wet

90 Minutes Speedboat Tour: Dubai Marina, Atlantis and Burj Al Arab
This was fun but be prepared to get wet. It was on the windy side and the seas were on the rougher side so this was a bumpy and wet ride. I would have preferred a smoother ride so that we could get more pictures. By the time we got to some of the stops for photos, we were windblown and wet. That said, if you are looking for an exciting and wet ride, this is your excursion.

Speedboat Tour: Marina, Atlantis, Palm & Burj Al Arab...
Good morning trip to see some of Dubai’s highlights - great when the boat picks up speed. Note there are some seats which fit 3 and we ended up waiting a while in the sun as a woman had a strop about not sitting with her husband. It’s also super hot on the water so definitely apply sun cream before…

1H JET SKI Tour Dubai, Burj al Arab & Atlantis
The Popeye jet ski tour was fantastic all around! We just had to wait a bit to start (about 15 mins after our scheduled start time), but it was totally worth it and even better honestly — allowed us to be out there on the water for the whole sunset (and still got the full 1 hour)! We had an absolute blast, and our guide took AMAZING photos and videos of us at different points including in front of Burj Al Arab. Would highly recommend!

Dubai's Sky-High Attractions

Although the Burj Al-Arab is known for its height, it technically only has 28 inhabited stories. If it's views you're after, only a visit to the world's tallest building, the nearby Burj Khalifa, will suffice.
