Besides being a super iconic benchmark, Burj Al Arab is the place where determination, technology and vision fuse together.
Although there are many new amazing hotels in Dubai, Burj Al Arab is still considered to be the yardstick and every hotel is compared against it. Besides, what you see from a distance while driving along Dubai’s Shaikh Zayed, in this blog we would try to separate myths about Burj Al Arab from the realities.

Can you enjoy your stay here, if you are on a budget?
If you are low on money, but you still feel like treating yourself like royalty, you can certainly come here and enjoy some unforgettable perks. However, you cannot show up here just unannounced. That is because this hotel sits on its own artificial island, which is also 300 meters offshore. In addition, you are also required to get past the security gates and drive through the island. In simpler words, if your budget is stiff, you might not be planning to have a night stay and if you are not staying a day or a night here, you are mandated to show any other reason to get the access.
