Burj Al Arab to offer guided tours to the public

For the first time, non-guests will have the opportunity to see inside the suites of this ‘7-star’ property 

Arguably Dubai’s most recognisable hotel,  Burj Al Arab has announced that it will offer guided tours to the public. Hosted by a butler, the 90-minute tours will take participants on a journey through the hotel.

The cost of the tour has not yet been revealed, but the tour itself will incorporate a visit to the Royal Suite and the new Experience Suite, where guests can trace the history of the hotel back to its original architectural designs through an interactive digital installation. The tour ends with a visit to the new Uma lounge, where guests can enjoy views of the Arabian Gulf. 


Jumeirah Group chief executive Jose Silva said: “Dubai is a world-class destination, where visitors can now discover the ambition, vision and sheer audacity behind one of its most iconic landmarks – the realisation of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai’s extraordinary vision.

“Inside Burj Al Arab, a groundbreaking guided tour befitting of the city’s innovative spirit, will showcase both the incredible calibre of Jumeirah Group’s luxury hospitality and our confidence in creating extraordinary guest experiences. As the world rediscovers its love of travel, we invite visitors to step inside the ‘original home of luxury’– a unique opportunity to explore Arabian opulence at its finest.”
