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.

Excellent Service
I actually missed the boat due to my taxi driver dropping us off at the wrong spot. However, the diligent follow up and willingness to wait for us to arrive was excellent service at its best!

Jet Ski Tour of Dubai: Burj Al Arab, Dubai Marina, Atlantis, Palm & Burj Khalifa
I had a wonderful time on this tour! The jet skiing was so fun! I went out with just the tour guide and myself and it was incredible! They took me right up to the Burj Al Arab and the Atlantis hotel. They let me jump off the heat ski and swim in the ocean. It was absolutely beautiful! I would do it again in a heartbeat! Loved it! Everyone was friendly and fun and made sure I felt welcome and had a great time! Wonderful place and people!

Speedboat Tour: Marina, Atlantis, Palm & Burj Al Arab...
Thanks for the great trip. The speedboat tour was as fast as it sounds, it was so much fun. We booked the tour at 6pm, which was a perfect time, because it wasn’t too hot (mid of September) and the lightning while driving back was awesome.

How to Get to the Burj Al-Arab

One of the most popular Dubai attractions, the Burj Al-Arab hotel stands on its own island promontory, linked to the mainland by a private bridge—you can't miss it. It can be reached by taxi or Red Line metro via Jumeirah Road.

When to Get There

Entering the Burj Al-Arab requires reservations, and grabbing cocktails at the Skyview Bar proves the most budget-friendly way to get inside (must be booked in advance).

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.
