A quite a number of blogs usually talk about seeing the Burj al Arab from the outside view and doing some activities near to it like yacht tours and beaches. Most of you also know the Skyview bar on the top of Burj al Arab. In this blog I thought of bringing some things to do in Burj al Arab to your attention in means of rooms, restaurants and other activities

Stay at Burj al Arab

It’s quite expensive as there are only suites in grand size with luxury along with the best views of the city. Gold is the main interiors to be seen over here. From the luxury airport pick up via Rolls Royce, to the VIP services and also a private butler for you is available round the clock.

The Lobby

The lobby is the main attraction here. No matter you are an outside guest or an in-house guest at the Burj al Arab, you are greeted in such manner that you will be flaunted. The lobby is so picturesque and I was lost with words to explain my feeling when I stood in the lobby of Burj al Arab. If you booked a room here you will be welcomed from the airport via the lobby in great Arabian style. Feel being a real VIP only in Burj al Arab.
