"A perfect end to our honeymoon "
Me and my husband (eeek still feels amazing to type that) visited the Burj Al Arab for a gorgeous 2 nights on our honeymoon. Previously staying at the fantastic Jumeirah Zabeel Saray we decided to book 2 nights of "celebrity luxury" before we returned home. An ordinary family, no riches and diamonds we actually fell extremely lucky when booking The Burj Al Arab and got a great deal! Still very expensive for 2 nights and not anything we could normally afford to spend but seeing as it was our honeymoon the once in a lifetime experience we just thought what the hell! Throughout our booking any queries help or advice we needed the amazing Kunal Chand replied back to every one of my emails quickly, effectly and always resolved any queries I did have. For example straighteners arnt normally apart of the room however I requested to have some before arriving as I wanted my hair to look nice for our swanky meal at the Al Mahara. Upon arrival I had straighteners in my room. It's the little things you know! The hotel itself is immaculate and breathtaking in every way you turn, we got picked up from our previous hotel in a rolls Royce and we're chauffeured to the burj al arab. I was given a gorgeous bouquet of colourful roses and upon arrival we had the hotel manager greet us and 3 members of staff offering refreshments. It really was a celebrity feel! Going up to our room 1404 on the 14th floor we met with two of the most lovely, smiley kind and helpful floor receptionists. Every time we exited the lift one of them would open our suite door immediately and greet us with a bow. I wish I knew their names as I would love to give them great credit but hopefully the hotel have their names on the system we stayed 7-9th December 2016. These two member of staff are a credit to your hotel. The suite itself was mind blowing! Their was pillars in the room created with gold leaf! A hugeeeeee floor to ceiling and room width window overlooking the ocean and the Jumeirah beach, we had chocolates and biscuits in our room and roses on our bed. The pool area was to die for, a real sense of true relaxation calm collected and immaculate the infity pool delivers such views of breathtaking memories. The staff were always so helpful offering drinks and refreshing towels. Now.. what were all waiting for.. THE FOOD! Now I must admit I am not a big fishy eater I wouldn't try anything I didn't no off and wouldn't buy fish to cook at home. I'll eat mussels at a restaurant and king prawns that's about it. But... the Al Mahara WOW. Truley breathtaking, like nothing you've seen before! Enetering the restaurant is like going down under the sea into some sort of movie! You take a golden lift down and enter into a beautiful under the sea filled fantasty! With subdued lighting glistening decoration and impeccable sea life we felt so spoilt! We sat down to a glass of wine and nibbles and waited for our table but we didn't know the staff were waiting for us to tell them we're ready haha! So 20 mins after our reservation and another glass of wine we went to enjoy our meal. We indulged in the 6 course chefs reccomendation as included in our stay. Normally nothing on this menu would i ever contemplate eating I didn't know what half the stuff was! But I thought hey your at a 7 star hotel in a Michelin restaurant just eat it and see what happenes. I wasn't going to start asking for alternatives in that much of prestigious restaurant. Our waitress was lovely I don't no her name either but she was white with an accent short dark hair shirt like ear cut stylish like Rihanna. She served us more wine upon request (wine very expensive £140 a bottle!) worth it though you have to look and act the part ha ha! And then came our food. They were small but amazing taste! It was like brill with cucumber tuna steak I think we had lobster and crab linguine which was to die for cod (this was the main and I didn't care for it as I hate cod so I left that) oysters cavier and sticky toffee pudding. I can't tell you have amazing the food was, pure flavour expertise cooking and timing and just incredible memories. I would happily pay the price itself to have that meal again I've never experienced anything like it! Massive compliments to the chefs! The whole stay was amazing every night we had our butler knock and he delivered sweet treats, ran our bath and we had gifts left on our bed each night too! Full size Hermes ammentities in the bathroom including fragrance which smelt beautiful and fresh flowers. I would DEFINITELY stay over again, I do think it probably is over priced maybe if you were one of the people who can really afford it and you had no care for overs concerns and you could boss people about to change that food get me that drink and money wasn't a an issue you wouldn't see it that way. But for £1000's per night there wasn't much of a huge difference in quest quality and importance of how the other Jumeirah hotels treat you. I do want to thank all the staff for a memorable stay and for being so kind to us. It was a perfect honeymoon. And your pool bar magheritta pizza was the nicest pizza I've ever tasted! Thank you!

To be honest not that impressive from the self rated 7*hotel. Service was slow, food items took long in coming out. The sandwiches, sweets were very ordinary. The scones were the only saving grace with the right accompaniments. Breakfast tea came with hot milk and no tea strainer. Oh well, an experience is an experience.
"excellent staff , great hotel"
we have stayed here a couple of times now and the quality and standard of staff and service is 2nd to none. Even the GM came to the pool bar to meet some guests which was a nice touch. especially in a suit when its hot. would highly recommend and although its slightly expensive , its not much more than most other places in dubai. great value for money. Top quality
"Perfect meal !!"
Reserved for a meal in the top level restaurant it was amazing, nice food with great views. The structure and interior of this hotel is breathtaking and so luxuriours. Truly deserves to be known as 7 star hotel!!
