It's the building that announced to the world that Dubai meant business. And two decades later, the Burj Al Arab remains a symbol of the city's transition from dusty island to gleaming metropolis. This excursion takes you to the renowned Al Iwan restaurant for a buffet lunch in luxurious surroundings.
You'll be picked up and transferred to the world-famous 320-metgre Burj Al Arab hotel. Shaped like the sail of a dhow and standing on its own artificial island, surrounded by the sea, it is one of the symbols of the new Dubai. You'll be following in the footsteps of models, athletes and actors as you step into the gilded lobby of the first-floor Al Iwan restaurant.
Despite its modern setting, Al Iwan – it means ‘The Royal Hall' – is decorated in the traditional Emirati style with lots of gold and red, and arches. The views over the Gulf are the icing on the cake. And a kitchen of top chefs will cook up a tasty buffet of Arabian and international favourites.
