Burj al Arab (Jumeirah) - any deals or breaks?

A family member wants to spend a night at the Burj al Arab (Jumeirah). Not having any Sirius points or AMEX MR points to transfer, I suggested that the only way to do it was to simply pay cash (what an alien concept around here!) which for one night at the lowest rate is actually far in excess of an economy roundtrip flight from the US to Dubai.

Any suggestions on how to score a less expensive rate?

Thanks

If you know somebody that lives in Dubai, I believe they are able to get special "locals" rates.

I suggest a search on the Luxury Hotels forum here on FT, if you haven't done so already.

Rates are lowest in the peak of summer -- July/August -- since that's considered off-season due to the extreme heat. (I enjoy being there at the time, though.)

Just avoid Ramadan, which is around 07/09-08/08 this year, as the amenities are curtailed significantly.
