About Emirates Palace Hotel


Even more ostentatious than the name suggests, this property on the waterfront is truly mindboggling in its size and scope. Embodying all that is shiny and excessive about the UAE's take on luxury, Emirates Palace Hotel is right on the beach and set on extensive palace grounds a short drive from the center of Abu Dhabi. Interiors are just as impressive as the exteriors, and rooms have an LCD/LED TV with an in-room entertainment system, sea view balconies, massive gold beds, and oversized marble bathrooms. Each guest is attributed a personal butler, and food on-site is naturally the best of everything from all reaches of the globe. Swimming is an obvious pastime here, and there's a beach for families and women and one for couples, plus a waterslide park and various pools. The Emirates Palace Spa only adds to the pampering you'll receive while staying at Emirates Palace Hotel.

Simply Amazing!
The service, diligence of the staff, kindness
From beginning to end the state was simply amazing. I came here to celebrate my birthday and the staff took a really good care of us. I even got a birthday surprise cake in the room after we came back from dinner. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to celebrate a special occasion. Special thanks to Younes for his warm welcome !
