Unfortunately we can not affort stay in the hotel like many other, but you can visit one of the bars in hotel. It requires prior booking. For us it was great experience. We had a table with a view. You pay 260 AED per person and you get two coctails (realy great and tasty) and one choice of bar snack.... More

Great views and worth the trip up to see the hotel for yourself but basically the Bury Al Arab is Vegas on steroids. I wasn't very impressed that the cocktails are approximately £20 each and they are premixed. My husband wanted one of the cocktails without a particular ingredient and was told that it wasn't possible because the drinks were... More

We had drinks in gold on 27. There is no minimum spend and the atmosphere and drinks we lovely. It's even worth just walking in the reception to see how beautiful it is.

Came for high tea and was one of the best experiences of my life! The view was amazing. The staff were so knowledgeable about each course and always willing to help. The food was exceptional and being in the hotel itself was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

its an architectural marvel and has a dress code apparently even for breakfast (no shorts etc). The service and food were fantastic and so was the interior of the palace type hotel.

This is a beautiful structure, but unfortunately I could only view it from the guard post. No one is allowed entrance unless you are a guest or have a reservation for dining. We visited during afternoon tea, and were told we could reserve a table for tea for an exhorbitant amount like almost $100 per person. We were allowed to... More
