My husband and I went to visit Emirates Palace for an afternoon. The hotel is very grand and beautiful, but besides just walking around there is a whole lot to do there. With that being said we decided to do their afternoon tea, which was a VERY good decision. The food and the desserts were absolutely amazing. We chose the... More

The place is spectacular and a treat for the eyes! Very beautifully made. Regarded as the costliest hotel in the world to be built before Marina Bay Sands in Singapore was built.

Well for sure the emirates palace is amazing and for sure being there as a guest has to be very nice but for tourism there is nothing special to give when you are inside the only thing you can do is drink a coffee with paper gold that cost 15 dls and that's it, nevertheless is the second must see...

The place to get a fancy 24kt coffee and an expensive camel burger. Beautiful to walk in and take photos in the grand lobby. Very strict dress code for men. Make sure to check their website or give them a call, but I believe there are no shorts allowed. Their Emirates brunch is delicious!

The hotel is over the top lux, a specialty of the UAE! We only came for dinner at Hakasan, which was absolutely outstanding. Be ready to spend some serious coin if you want to order freely, but well worth the splurge.

The hotel is just beautiful (perhaps a bit over the top for my taste) and you can stop here for lunch and after lunch walk down to the beach. Of the things to do in Abu Dhabi, I would place this right after the Shaykh Zayd Mosque. Now that the museums are opening (I have not visited them), I may... More

Emirates Palace was incredible. You walk in and immediately feel the beauty of it all. We had reservations for High Tea and it was amazing. I recommend making reservations for tea, prior to your visit. We loved the Emirates coffee...an experience in of itself. And one not to be missed. After tea, we had time to walk around for shopping... More

The hotel lobby blew me away. Everything was made of gold and the floor was marbled. Even the cranes in the toilets were from gold. If you want to see a classy hotel, just come and see for yourself!
