The only 7 star resort in the world and it lives up to its name. I had never been inside a place that exudes so much opulence across every inch of the building.
Tip: you cannot show up at the hotel without a booked reservation to stay or dine there. It is gated and they will check. They respect the privacy of their guests.
Once you arrive at the Burj Al Arab you are greeted by a few people at the door with extreme professionalism and kindness and they let you into the palace.
Prepare to be wowed!
The first thing you see upon entry is a water fountain and the hollowed out center of the hotel. The water fountain has a timed dance for the water and its mesmerizing to keep watching it.
The check in area is expansive with floor length glass windows and views of the aquarium.
You then ride up the escalator to an area that has shops, dining, and you can see the hollowed out center to the top.
If you ride the elevator to the top, you can look down and see the concierge for each floor.
Did you know that the Burj was built in 1999 and it hasn’t gone under any major renovations? That’s quite spectacular that it’s just as luxurious today as it was then. It felt like a royal palace, so I cannot imagine how it was perceived 17 years ago.
