If you're a minimalist then you won't like it here. If it looks like gold, then it probably is gold, or at least gold leaf. The design and architecture is stunning, the grounds are beautiful and really well maintained. The fountains are very striking and lit up at night, some of them in different colours. The decor is lavish and... More

If you thought you have seen it all, go to this hotel. Free parking, free entry, no shorts or flip flops allowed. Very friendly staff, and inside all gold and marble. At aed 60 take their signature cappucino with gold flakes, and yes, you can drink it. Over the top, but hey, you only live once.

It is one of the most famous and expensive hotel in Abu Dhabi. Like sitting area in its lobby. Long beach and great views. Good place to be visited but expensive to stay.

The grounds of the hotel and the building itself were gorgeous but I kind of thought walking around the inside was a bit of a waste of time. Nothing really to see unless youre a hotel guest.

If you want to see a real luxury, than it is essential to visit the Emirates Palace. Dress properly, all body parts should be covered with clothes. Than you wil pass through security. Hotel is nearly wraped in gold, everything is very expencive. But don't be greedy and try cappuccino with gold! Maybe it is your only chance to taste... More

Schedule an afternoon tea with some friends, and definitely try the cappuccino with the gold flakes in it. The outside area by the beach has couches, and serves shisha out on the sand. Try the camel burger, it is delicious! You can spend hours walking through the beautiful hallways, and just roaming the property. Definite must see.
