A trip to Dubai isn't complete without a visit to Burj Al Arab - and Skyview lounge, which is perched at the very top of the hotel. This blue and green oasis features floor to ceiling windows offering sweeping views of the city. Like the hotel, the decor was never intended to be understated so it's worth it for special occasions or to impress visitors. Be sure to make reservations for easy access to this landmark venue.
Burj Al Arab Jumeirah
One of Dubai’s most famous tourist landmarks, the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah often stands among the top five – if not the absolute peak – of the world’s most iconic hotels.
Since its opening in late 1999, the hotel with its distinctive sail-shaped silhouette, has thrust Dubai onto the global luxury tourism landscape. Built on a triangular man-made island reclaimed from the sea, the hotel and its billowing sail-like structure rise 321 metres above the sea, offering panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf.
Managed by Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts, the Burj Al Arab takes accepted standards of luxury to a new level. Guests have access to service on par with royalty and fine dining alike. Gold interiors, lush suites, the finest delicacies – Burj Al Arab’s long list of superlatives cannot be matched.
Take your pick from an underwater aquarium restaurant reached through a simulated submarine voyage, heralded by famed and award winning chef Nathan Outlaw, a fleet of Rolls-Royces on the forecourt and the famous helipad that has hosted the likes of Tiger Woods, Anthony Joshua and Roger Federer.

Wild Wadi Waterpark
One of the best waterparks you’ll find anywhere in the world is the Wild Wadi Waterpark, a popular ticket at anytime of the year thanks to Dubai’s warm weather.
Sitting right on the shore of the city’s iconic Burj Al Arab, it’s a true Arabian water experience. Wild Wadi is themed around the tale of classic Arabian character Juha and offers a variety of pulsating rides, slides and activities for all ages.
If relaxation is your tonic, the gentle Wave Pool is a great way to rock away the day. Or, you can hire a private cabana for some quiet downtime at the Lazy River.
Kids will want to explore Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon, a giant playground offering a number of different slides. The giant tipping bucket is guaranteed to leave you drenched if you happen to be standing anywhere nearby.
For something with a bit more tempo and excitement, there are a number of speed slides to tempt you from your lounge chair.
Try your hand at the Flood River Flyer, or test your limits on the Jumeirah Sceirah. There’s also a surfing simulator to try and fight the water flow on a surfboard or bodyboard.
