Burj al Arab DUBAI 7 star self rated ? My wife and I decided to break up our flight from Europe with a couple of nights at the Burj al Arab, rated as the World’s only 7 star hotel. This top of the line hotel appears to be full most of the time, proving there is demand for super luxury, whatever the price.
On arrival we were escorted to our two storey suite by an elegant Supervisor who took care of all the check in requirements in our fully equipped office in our suite. We were introduced to our butler, who offered to unpack our bags – what a great start. We climbed the stairs to our enormous bedroom that had floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking Dubai and the Gulf.
Words can hardly describe the opulence and comfort of this suite, the only problem was it was so outstanding we hardly left the room, sorry suite.
The property has many restaurants serving a wide variety of food and rare wines. We ate one night in the fusion Asian buffet (around $100 pp) excluding beverages. Although a buffet, many dishes were cooked to order and naturally the service was 7 star. I believe that staying at a fine hotel can make a vacation even more memorable. Often long after I have forgotten the local sights, I still remember outstanding hotels and meals that usually are out of the ordinary. Staying at Burj al Arab is an experience I will long remember.
