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.

Private Yacht: Luxury Cruising at Dubai Marina, Atlantis The Palm & Burj Al Arab
One hour tour and nice way to get an introduction to the city on the water. Yacht was older but great and served our purpose of being on the deck, listening to jams and enjoying the views with family. There were 8 of us. The crew was courteous and kept the refreshments coming to keep us cool in the heat. We did not see many of the landmarks I was hoping to see, but all in all it was great to be out!

90 Minutes Speedboat Tour: Dubai Marina, Atlantis and Burj Al Arab
The trip was amazing! Really friendly and informative staff who went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. We were the only guests on the boat, which was a nice bonus. I recommend booking a trip in the morning or in the evening to beat the heat! Great experience all around, would definitely recommend!

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.
