Emirates Palace

Emirates Palace

The hotel jewel in Abu Dhabi’s crown, the palace opened to the public in November 2005.

Described as ‘a lavishly imagined dream’, the hotel has 394 luxurious rooms and suites, and is located right in the heart of the UAE capital. Facilities include a 1.3 km pristine beach, landscaped pools and a private marina overlooking a natural bay.

A tourist attraction in its own right, the main draws are the expansive marble floors, the large patterned dome decked out in gold.
