Underwater palace in the most luxurious hotel in the world. Burj Al Arab is one of the main attractions in Dubai. So when you are in the United Arabs Emirates, this hotel is a must stop for a cocktail, photo shoot or a formal dinner. Hotel offers many cuisine options anything from local Arabic specialities to fancy seafood splurge. The luxury starts right at the door step of the hotel where you can see guests coming out of the Rolls Royce, and helicopters landing at the top. So, Al Mahara is a unique place by its nature, it is located in Burj Al Arab, and exceptional ambience is guaranteed. One thing to keep in mind, this hotel is over the top with everything, including décor, reputation and service, so it may come across as artificial and too much. Sometime, I think of it as Las Vegas in the middle of the Arabian desert. Al Mahara’s interior is smart and contemporarily, the main sight at the restaurant is a giant aquarium filled with exotic fish. You will be offered squid ink bread and seaweed butter to nibble on before your main courses arrive. Imagine the imaginable: appetizers, fish, and seafood, anything you desire served with great presentation and attention to detail. Main lobster comes with original and light sauce made with a cognac, sea bass is prepared in sea salt crust, and everything you order grilled, poached or fried is tasty, exquisite and mouth-watering. Finish the evening with original tiramisu. The restaurant is overpriced; but who said luxury comes cheap? At the end of the day Burj Al Arab has to keep its reputation for being a seven star hotel.
