Overview

Dubai’s sail-like temple to luxury with nine restaurants, a fleet of Rolls Royces and a sultan’s ransom of bling

The Lowdown

Since its opening in 1999, this self-described seven-star property on its own man-made island in the Arabian Gulf became an icon and a tribute to the frenzied luxury of Dubai. British architect Tom Wright based his 1,056-foot bold design on the sail of a dhow ship. The 202 light-filled duplex suites are a riot of marble, columns and, above all, gold. Nine restaurants and bars include the ground-floor Al Maharda with floor-to-ceiling aquariums and a simulated submarine ride to the entrance, and the 27th-floor Al Muntaha serving modern European cuisine. Balance your chakras at the Assawan Spa, located on levels 18 and 19, which offers organic treatments, infinity pools and a roman-inspired Amphitheatre serving fruit juices and snacks.

In the Area

Dubai’s Umm Suqeim neighborhood is close to Wild Wadi Water Park, and Ski Dubai, an indoor ski resort in the sprawling Mall of the Emirates. The public Umm Suqeim Beach is popular with expats and tourists who come to surf and paddle board. Want to escape modern Dubai for a bit? The neighborhood of Bastakiya, on the west side of Dubai Creek, houses shops, restaurants and galleries in a renovated quarter with centuries-old architecture. Nearby, the Dubai Museum, located in an 18th century fort, gives visitors a glimpse of traditional Emirati culture.

Opulence at its finest
Reviewed 3 hours ago

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to Manesh, the Butler who took care of me and my wife on the 10th floor. The service and care provided by him was absolutely outstanding and it was a pleasure to have him as a butler, truly someone who loves his job and is always willing to help.

What can I say? The rooms, the lobby, the pool, the restaurants, everything is simply amazing. If you’re seeking the finer things and you’re not concerned about the price, definitely stay here when you visit Dubai. We thought we had seen luxury hospitality before but nothing like this we could have ever imagined. The hotel is truly, ONE OF A KIND!

We visited the Burj for the 3rd time over the last 7 years, I have to say although the staff and service are absolutely 5 star the place it’s self now is starting to show signs of ware.

The Skyview bar did not disappoint with its views and service.

A relaxed atmosphere with exceptional service but could do with a freshen up.

This is the most over the top hotel on the world and the best. We have had many stays here over almost 20 years and have loved every one. Nothing to fault any time. Best location, great service. Nothing is too much trouble for them. As part of the Jumeirah complex you have get a hotel buggy and lagoon boat to many restaurants within. And shopping also.

Great
