Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, is known as a playground for the rich and famous thanks to its lavish pool parties, pricy beach clubs and luxury hotels.

The streets are often filled with supercars and influencers flaunt their latest fashion on the streets and at glamorous events.

But, one resort is the most well-known in the region – the Burj Al Arab.

Since opening in 1999 the sail-shaped hotel has sat on its own island surrounded by the gorgeous, blue waters of the Arabian Gulf.

It’s home to some of the city’s best restaurants from Ristorante L’Olivo to an underwater eatery.

The hotel is also known for hosting VIP guests and celebs like Tiger Woods and Roger Federer.

Now, we know why, as we’ve discovered the hidden luxury inside the Burj Al Arab – from its golden corridors and dishes to a fleet of Rolls Royce cars.

Arrive in style

Burj Al Arab Jumeirah offers its own fleet of Rolls-Royces available for guests’ transfers to and from Dubai International Airport or around the emirate.

For the ultimate arrival, guests can arrive by helicopter, landing on the iconic cantilevered helipad, suspended 212 meters above sea level.

A golden dream

The interiors of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah are gilded in 24-carat gold, with approximately 2,000sqm of 24-carat gold leaf used to embellish the hotel’s opulent interiors.

But that's not the only golden offering. The hotel also serves up a cappuccino sprinkled with 24-carat gold flakes.

Dubai’s most iconic hotel introduced The Ultimate Gold Cappuccino served at its Sahn Eddar lounge, which is located within the hotel’s atrium, from 8am to 11pm.

The coffee is made using 100% Arabica beans, mixed with foamed milk that is then blended with 24-carat gold.

The drink boasts the hotel’s iconic sail-shaped design, and is served alongside a Grand Cru Guanaja, a chocolate marshmallow also sprinkled with gold.

Your own butler

The Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Terrace is a remarkable, one-of-a-kind restaurant, pool, beach and cabana space, offering hotel guests and Burj Al Arab members the finest Arabian hospitality.

The private 10,000sqm outdoor luxury leisure facility stretches 100 metres out into the sea and is home to SAL Restaurant and two stunning pools, ideal for relaxing, cooling down and soaking up the Arabian sun within plush surroundings.

The private cabanas offer unrivalled poolside facilities along with dedicated butler service, a dining, beverage and bar menu, spa menu, fully stocked mini-bars, espresso machines, as well as a private bathroom, shower area and a veranda overlooking the sea.

Wellness to the next level

Located on the 25th floor, Talise Spa at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is the first and only location in the Middle East – and second worldwide after the luxurious Capri Palace Jumeirah – to offer guests the exclusive Leg School.

The unique programme has been developed over several years of practice and research to help improve blood circulation of the lower limbs, tackling issues such as cellulite and water retention.

Michelin star dining

Burj Al Arab Jumeirah’s exceptional culinary talent and gastronomic experiences have been lauded in the inaugural Michelin Guide Dubai 2022, with its signature restaurant, Al Muntaha, gaining one Michelin star for its outstanding expertise and artistry.

Serving up the finest Italian cuisine by acclaimed Chef Saverio Sbaragli, the stunning restaurant was recognised for its harmony of flavours and spectacular setting overlooking the city and crystalline Arabian Gulf.
