第三天(續)

用過午膳,已是2:30pm,筆者便仔細研究房間每一角落,用電腦上網為回港機位Check-in,其後便於「帆船酒店」到處走走,拍照留念!


於5:00pm到6:00pm的時段,「帆船酒店」有數間餐廳會開放給住客參觀,以作出適當的選擇。開放的餐廳除了筆者享有午膳的Al Muntaha外,亦包括著名的海底餐廳Al Mahara。

Al Mahara應是「帆船酒店」必到的米芝蓮三星級餐廳,但筆者的朋友曾於此用膳,但評價是不大值得,加上一些旅遊網誌的描述也不大佳,所以筆者也打消了於此用膳的念頭。但是這次既然有機會參觀,當然要親身造訪,看過究竟是什麼回事!

筆者參觀過海底餐廳Al Mahara後,大致覺得不於比用膳決定正確,但始終沒有親身於此用膳,所以不便評論是否完全正確!Al Mahara的入口有一部電梯,落一層便到了Waiting Area,等候進入一道「潛水艇」大門。


有旅遊網誌曾提及進入「潛水艇」會看到一些Animation,令自己以為置身深海中,朋友則說「潛水艇」真的浸在水中,但無論怎樣,「潛水艇」應該不是潛到深海另一邊的餐廳,因為以電梯到了再低一層,便會發現「潛水艇」的出口,正正是「潛水艇」入口的下面!

到了海底餐廳Al Mahara,只見環境及座位真的如筆者朋友描述般狹窄擠迫,而所謂「深海晚餐」其實只是對着大水族箱用膳罷!兩人晚餐需HK$4,000以上,為於Al Muntaha午膳的兩倍,此所以筆者不選擇於海底餐廳Al Mahara晚膳,因覺價錢貴但不是物有所值!


到了6:00pm,筆者便到附近同一集團經營的Madinat Jumeirah找食肆晚膳。Madinat Jumeirah俗稱「水上行宮」,以水道貫穿不同地方,包括酒店、商場及食肆!此地方最為人熟悉的要算TVB「向世界出發」夏雨一輯曾於此拍攝。於「帆船酒店」的大門,可乘免費的Golf Cart到達商場部分,名為Souk Madinat Jumeirah (Souk即是「街」),那裡有很多商鋪及食肆,筆者亦順道視察一下,因為第四天的行程將於此打發一段時間。

Souk Madinat Jumeirah有很多人,很熱鬧,很Casual,和「帆船酒店」的恬靜和Formal是兩個極端。筆者於那裡的一間意大利餐廳Toscana吃了Pizza及意粉,沒有特別但水準也不錯!用過晚膳,便乘Golf Cart返回「帆船酒店」的房間,繼續享受一番!

Hi, Red Monkey,

Just want to share some good experience with you about Al Mahara. We (i.e. a family with 3 persons) stayed at Burj Al Arab for 2 nights last August and had dined in Al Mahara where we experienced a wonderful meal. In fact, Al Mahara's service is excellent and the food is good (but not exceptionally delicious) although the environment is not so outstanding. Furthermore, we got a surprise after finished the meal : a delicious free chocolate mousse cake (approx. 1 lb)was delivered to our table & was greeted "Happy Anniversary" by the waiter. (Actually, we did not have any "Anniversary" to be celebrated. The cake was only a free gift from Al Mahara.) Besides, the bread (delicious and with difference types) and desserts are also free. Only drinks, soups and main course are charged. It's great that there is no service charge for the meal. Therefore, it is worth to try when you visit Burj Al Arab next time.

Bascially, people can only get into Burj Al Arab if they have letter to prove that they will stay there for night(s) or they will have meal in the restaurant(s) inside.

On the other hand, people can go to the Shopping Mall and restaurants inside Souk Madinat Jumeriah. However, I wonder if any permission should be get to go to the hotel area.
