The lobby of the Burj Al Arab Dubai is a sight to behold, with its towering height, gold-leaf decor, and striking fountain sweeping up guests in grandeur and luxury.

The atrium itself is an impressive 590 feet tall, making it one of the highest in the world. The colour scheme is bold and eye-catching, with a striking combination of red, blue, and green that creates a mood of luxury.

The pillars draped in gold leaf only seek to add a further touch of opulence that is befitting of this legendary hotel.

While you may not be staying in one of the hotel’s 202 suites, the lobby is worth visiting in its own right, but keep in mind that you’ll need to make a reservation for Burj Al Arab cocktails or afternoon tea to get past security.

But even though prices can be on the high side, it’s all worth it once you’re inside, where you’ll have the chance to take in the grandeur of the space and marvel at intricate details in the flooring and the center-stage fountain.

It’s a space that’s as garish as it is gorgeous, and it’s hard not to be impressed by the sheer scale and opulence of it all.
