When I visited Dubai, my boyfriend surprised me with a booking at The Burj Al Arab.... From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. They greeted us by name and took us to our room- which was spectacular! My mouth dropped when I saw the room... I had seen it for years on the Travel Channel, but I couldn't believe it when we walked in. Our butler showed us around and we also had fresh fruit, a box of cookies, an unlimited mini-bar, an a bottle of wine waiting for us (all of which was complimentary). Also, the bathroom had full size Hermes products for him and her- I loved my perfume so much I have now bought a bottle for my mom! Our butler was amazing, he even brought me a bouquet of flowers, a card, and a cake, thinking we were on our honeymoon (not yet, wink). He helped us book a reservation at the Japanese restaurant where they also knew us by name as we arrived. Came back to our room and found turn-down service, with more flowers and chocolates... The views from our room were spectacular, we could see all of Dubai. The next day, we went to the private beach and had lunch there before checkout.
On a side-note: we also went for tea at the Skyview Bar and it was one of the BEST meals of my LIFE! I am the pickiest eater so I really wasn't sure if I'd like it, but it was amazing! We were served complimentary champagne to start and then chose what tea we wanted. I chose a strawberry tea and it was on the best drinks I've ever had- I crave it to this day! The meal started with a small dish of cream with fresh berries, and the next course was a hot salmon dish which was delicious. They then brought out a tray of unlimited sandwiches- with about 8 or so choices (egg sandwiches, roast beef, cucumber, etc). Next was an array of desserts which were all scrumptious. Waiters were very attentive and asked if you needed more of anything. Finished the meal off with yummy chocolates. The view was amazing- could see all of Dubai as well as the "world islands." We ended staying for a few hours just talking, gorging ourselves and taking in the views. I had such a wonderful time at tea, I wish I would have book us tea twice. I really believe it was worth every single penny paid, it is one of my fondest memories of Dubai.
All around- this is clearly the most amazing hotel, and it deserves it's reputation as the world's best hotel. I think it certainly is a bit "pricey," to say the least, but it is definitely worth it if you can afford the treat.
