Time Out Says

Fancy some gold sprinkled on your capuccino? Well you’re in the right place. Emirates Palace is nothing short of magnificent. You can expect five-star hospitality, authentic local experiences and top restaurants, in what is undoubtedly one of Abu Dhabi’s most iconic buildings.

Located smack bang on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, the hotel is a mere four-minute gander to the beach where it overlooks its own private natural bay – all 1.3km of it.

The stunning mosaics throughout the hotel are evocative of Abu Dhabi’s rich history while the latest technology and gadgets in the 394 luxurious rooms and suites give you the very best of old world charm with modern comforts.

Every guest can expect an iPad mini with integrated room controls, interactive HD TV, a choice of more than 150 channels, free movies, On Demand services and every room comes with a 24-hour butler service.

When you get peckish you can mosey on down to one of 14 top-notch restaurants including seafood spot Sayad. Try delicious Arabic fare at Mezlai, or go all out at the Palace’s Caviar Bar for something extra special.

When it’s time to chill out, you can make the most of two expansive swimming pools, a luxury spa with a range of treatments and a fully equipped fitness centre at your leisure.
