If you’ve ever wondered what sort of place you can build for US$3billion, then this is the answer. It’s not just giddy hyperbole either; it really feels palatial, with luxury that regularly accommodates royalty. Rooms have plasma screens as standard, while the top-of-the-range accommodation comes with a room for your bodyguard and a private butler to take care of your every need. The beach and pool areas are outstanding, but room service can be slow and not all the in-house restaurants are worth the price. Even if you can’t afford to stay, it’s worth a visit for afternoon tea.

The building itself is impressive, the service extremly professional and friendly. It's a real Palace and worth staying there. Great beach and pool areas, a calm place in the city but within its own great park.
