The place is deceptively vast, which is a relative statement as it looks big from the outside, but once you're inside you still marvel at how they packed it all in. It has its own auditorium, where we have previously been to see an orchestra play music from Disney. Several function rooms where I have attended business lunches. Brilliant restaurants... More

must-see in Abu Dhabi. Beautiful place with very nice exhibits around and excellent high end cafes and restaurants. Of course, check out the gold dispensing ATM but don't miss the back verandas and beach barbeque.

If there is a place that you must visit in Abu Dhabi this is Emirates Palace. You could use many adjectives to describe it but it simply is beyond words.

It looks like a palace, and the atmostphere makes you think that you are in a palace. The setting is in a great location over looking the sea. The beach stretches the length of the hotel and more, The Hotel also offers a part of the beach that is very private that visitors of the hotel can not see. It... More

Get in a taxi and go to the Emirates Palace. It is just fantastic. You can walk inside and take photos. The shops are amazing to look at and all the glass cases containing items. Use the bathroom. It's a different world. There is always a museum to the right to look in that is free. On the way out... More

The Emirates Palace for us was an ok distraction on a rainy day. It is certainly huge, incredibly opulent and ornately decorated, but it just felt like a curiosity more than anything else. A hotel doubling up as a tourist attraction, it seemed like it didn't really know what its purpose was. The afternoon tea did look very nice, and... More

This place is luxury and elegance. It is grand and palacial as its name suggests. Creams and golds all over the hotel. Myself my friend and my husband visited for afternoon tea and it was lovely and the good news is is that you don't have to book one per person. We had two between three of us and it... More

Having been to the Palace dozens of times as I live in Abu Dhabi, it becomes a normal please to go. Whenever I have friends visiting we go for a drink or coffee and I remember the first time I visited and how totally blown away I was. From the free valet parking where you stop your car on marble,... More
