Burj Al Arab has designated itself as a 7-star hotel, and whether you agree or not, it is definitely one of Dubaï's greatest masterpieces - and the world's 4th highest hotel of not less than 321 meters.
The hotel is designed to look like a billowing sail, and is, in addition to being the most photographed hotel in the world, it is also the world's most famous, finest, and most expensive hotel - It is consistently voted the world's most luxurious hotel.
We got lucky enough to stay there for 7 nights!
Everything there is beyond your expectations. The setting is luxurious, the furniture is breathtaking, the food is succulent! But it is the service that really makes the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah so extraordinary.
We booked the Indulgence suit for our stay. Our suite was 375 m2: composed of 3 rooms, 2 bathrooms, an office, 2 living rooms, and a kitchen (though I've never touched it) as well as the dining room, the incredible hotel interior design was the courtesy of Khaun Chew.
Every day started with a gigantic breakfast table with everything you could think of. Having 4 children made it difficult to go out for every meal, so breakfast was served in our room by 2 waiters! Once again the service and their discretion made all the difference.
After this delicious and hearty breakfast, we took our children out even though everything was inviting us to stay inside: kids had access to the PlayStation and had a gold plated Ipad please, so you can imagine how hard it was to persuade them to visit the surroundings...
To be sure to compete intelligently with the PlayStation, we sought advice from our personnel Butler who suggested us to go to the Wild Wadi Water Park. One of the world's most impressive waterparks. Wild Wadi is a playground that delights the whole family. It is the perfect location for leisure.
Our butler arranged the transportation with a private buggy to go there. And as promised, we all had a great time. nadiach.com
The Hotels surroundings are also so kids friendly: Aquariums, football ground, beach and much more.
Being a shopaholic, I had to visit the Dubai Mall, the largest shopping center in the world and houses a whopping 1,200 stores. Even if you aren't interested in buying anything, a visit to this immense retail center is a must.
The Dubaï Mall also contains numerous entertainment facilities, such as an ice rink, a movie theater and several kid-friendly attractions, including an aquarium that houses more than 33,000 underwater creatures.
After a long day full of emotions (especially for my husband and his credit card😅), we made a delightful break into the private spa.
Another exciting experience was our visit to Global Village: "The World Gate". Filled with different cultures for the whole world, you can experience local food, music, surroundings, exhibitions in a unique place!
I have tried the Pakistani samosas to judge the quality and I give them a thumb up!
The last thing that made our stay even more special was because it was during Valentine's day💖
If you are looking for a life experience or you want to be treated like a princess so you have to come at the Burj Al Arab.
