This was such a wonderful experience to have afternoon tea at this 7* hotel. It just oozes luxury as soon as you walk in. Savour this visit because it's not something you do every day. It's quite expensive but well worth the experience. The staff were so attentive and saw to our every need. We were shown to a window table so had just the best view of the Jumeirah Beach hotel and the coastline. You don't need anything to eat before you go, just enjoy the delicious treats offered. Well worth a visit. An experience to behold. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Only had afternoon tea at this hotel, but I would imagine every room in this hotel is top-class!!

After looking forward to staying at the Burj Al Arab, we were certainly not disappointed in any way. On arrival at the hotel we were immediately greeted from our transport by our name, welcomed with refreshments and taken straight to our guest suite without having to check in at reception. We were introduced to our butler on our way to our suite and were checked in when we entered our suite. Check in was smooth and painless, followed by a tour of the suite and facilities. We booked into a panoramic suite which was very impressive. Upstairs was the bedroom suite with magnificent bathroom and dressing area. The bed was a comfortable king sized bed with hide away TV. The bathroom had a huge shower area with rain shower and a two person whirl pool bath.

Downstairs had a little office area, huge living room area, a bar area and a cloakroom. All of this was surrounded by wall to ceiling windows which gave a wonderful view of Dubai and the Gulf.

The service was impeccable, the butler was always on call and quick to respond and every evening a bubble bath was prepared for us. Nothing was too much trouble. There are no faults we could mention. Check out was as easy as check in, so no lining up at a reception in the lobby. This was one of the best experiences we have ever had in our many travels and would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this fabulous hotel and wonderful staff.

One key point that we found very impressive was that the butlers always knew who you were and which room you were staying at which gives that personal touch.

What an amazing hotel, I have been here twice now and it is faultless. The surroundings inside and out are just amazing which is why it holds the accolade of being the best hotel in the world. The afternoon tea is delightful with a string quartet playing in the background which is just exquisite. The sky bar offers amazing views of Dubai seeing some iconic landmarks. The staff are extremely tentative and polite. Go and visit, even if it's for a meal or afternoon tea but remember you have to book in advance.

Booked this as a belated wedding anniversary treat for my husband and myself but wisely didn't tell my husband the cost - the secret of 34 yrs of marriage!
It was everything I imagined - glitzy, gaudy, OTT but great fun.
I won't repeat what everyone else has said just make sure you get there early to be able to look round, don't eat anything before you go, savour what you do eat and just enjoy.

We visited The Burj Al Arab for Afternoon Tea in the Skyview Bar in July.

From entering the Burj the service was excellent. We were seated with a window view which overlooked both The Palm and the Jumeriah beach coast. Our waiter was friendly and accomodating and took photographs for us. The service was attentive and we were offered teas, coffees, water and date juice throughout our afternoon tea.

The food was lovely, with a strawberry shortbread to start, followed by beef, sandwiches/wraps, scones with jam and clotted cream, cakes and pastries, finishing with a sorbet. The ladies were given a small box of chocolates to take away with us.

I really enjoyed Afternoon Tea at the Burj and would definitely recommend to others. Looking forward to going back to amazing Dubai and the Burj!

We spent 10 days with my family and I have to say we were really excited.
To service in this hotel??? It is simply the best in a world, but I would specially like to thank the staff, especially the maids who cleaned several times a day and porters(doorman) they were incredibly kind and helpful.

Thank you very much and see you next year:)

Easily the most luxurious hotel I've ever and will ever stay in. Staff will go out off their way to serve your every need. Private beach and pool area is lovely. We stayed in one of the panoramic suites with an outstanding view. Ridiculously expensive but for us worth every penny. Highly recommend for a special occasion such as engagement/anniversary or honeymoon. You will feel like royalty for the duration of your stay.
