Burj Al Arab
Here’s an ITA Matrix search showing good pricing but not quite as good as I’m seeing.
Most websites will have this starting at $594 but you can get the cheaper pricing using airfare metasearch site Momondo.
Visit the Burj Al Arab for tea, get out into the desert to Starwood’s Al Maha, regardless $500 roundtrip to Dubai is a fantastic fare.
