Best experiences in the burjs

We will be going to Dubai on Honeymoon in Sept. h2b wants to visit Khalifa and I want to do Burj al Arab.

In your opinion what is the best experience to have in each one. Budget isn't an issue.

I'm thinking afternoon tea in the al Arab (but open to other suggestions). We want the luxury mostly here.

Not sure what's on offer at the Khalifa. H2b just wants to go up as high as us possible.

Thanks in advance.

I didn't know you could do afternoon tea in the Khalifa. That's def an option.

So would others agree the best options are - afternoon tea in Khalifa and another day cocktails in BAA.

Do they still do the spa and beach package? you could combine that with afternoon tea or a meal.

Afternoon tea at the Burj al Arab is a better option than cocktails if you are going for the views.

The restaurant at Burj Khalifa is called At.mosphere. They serve afternoon tea and dinner in there so that may be an option for you too.

You can google information on all of them

Thanks latimer. Have googled them all (now) and was just looking for an input in personal preferences.

Think ill stick with the original plan afternoon tea in BAA for the luxury and observation deck in Khalifa at sunset for the views followed by dinner by the fountains

The observation deck in Khalifa isn't worth the money they are asking for it, especially in case of immediate admission tickets (400 AED - oh yeah). Book in advance or... just find someone who lives/works at Burj Khalifa (pssst!)

Wowsers. Will def be booking in advance. I'd love to try find someone who lived there. But it's the one thing h2b really wants to do (and go as high up as possible) so can't leave it to chance. Oh well.
