Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and Discount First Class Tickets Are Welcome Oases
Billing itself as the world’s most luxurious hotel, Dubai’s Burj al Arab Jumeirah’s confidence is well-deserved. It repeatedly earns top accolades from luxury travel magazines and organizations and is a welcome respite for discerning travelers who expect first-rate service after a long, business class flight.
The hotel’s consummate service actually begins at Dubai International Airport. There, resort staff meet you with a chauffer-driven Rolls Royce or a private helicopter ready to whisk you away to the elegant hotel. From the Rolls, you’ll be treated to your first glimpse of the magnificent sail-like architecture that defines Burj al Arab. The helicopter ride is a treat in itself, giving you an incredible view of gleaming Dubai and the one-of-a-kind scene of islands designed to form palm trees and sea horses. Your breathtaking landing puts you atop the 28th level, offering even more spectacular views.
Once inside the hotel, the polished service continues with private reception areas on each floor and options for private butlers who anticipate your every need. Every guest room in the hotel is a suite, designed in a modern style with a nod to Arab tradition and aesthetics. Even the most modest one-bedroom suite is a two-story delight with incredible views of the Arabian Gulf and majestic beds that invite you to sleep away the jet lag from your tiring but affordable first class flight.
While the suites’ accommodations, service and views may tempt you to stay in your rooms for the duration of your trip, there are plenty of treasures to be found in the rest of the hotel. For recreation, the hotel offers four swimming pools and a private beach, free access to Wild Wadi Waterpark, a fitness center and a kids’ club.
After a day spent shopping in Dubai’s glittering, world-class malls or sightseeing through the desert, there’s nothing more alluring than a pampering treatment in the hotel’s Talise Spa. The spa is actually a destination in its own right, frequently earning awards as the world’s most luxurious spa. The spa menu includes aqua retreats, saunas, body wraps and a wide variety of massage options.
Dining is equally sumptuous at Burj al Arab, ranging from an unforgettable repast under the world’s tallest atrium to al fresco dining while star gazing. Each of the hotel’s nine restaurants and lounges are distinct in ambiance and flavor, but all offer impeccable service and perfectly executed dishes and drinks.
