Dropped in for high tea with my wife today. There is a choice of 2 -traditional or Arabic. We opted for Arabic as you know - when in Rome.. My wife had the signature coffee with the gold leaf and I had a very nice Japanese green tea. The food was less impressive and the Arabic components of the tea... More

My partner and I did the high tea at the Emirates Palace and really enjoyed it. We both had the vegetarian Arabic high tea (you can choose an English version if you prefer). It's quite expensive, but the food was really great and there is a good selection of tea. Don't have breakfast before you go - there is plenty... More

Went here for a conference evening event and it was amazing. The palace is simply stunning (maybe a little too much gold), and the buffet (with delicious lobster and steak, and much more) and entertainment were very memorable

Amazing experience, as i don't know anywhere else where they serve you gold in your coffee. We had afternoon tea which would compare to the likes of any Mayfair hotel.

This hotel is on the shore of the Arabian Sea, the pink color building seems like a Arabian night palace.This is the most luxurious hotel of Abu dhabi and as well as U.A.E.

If you are looking for luxury scenes and setting, then this is the place, but if you want comfort and hospitality, then you chose wrong!!! The hotel has very lavish interior and exterior design, but the services available compared to other hotels in the region with the same level are not that much, and compared to the price, definitely you...

I liked all the interior in this luxurious hotel especially the marble floor. There is a variety of restaurants and coffee shops in the Emirates Palace.

On our last day in Abu Dhabi we decided to do something really extravagant, so we booked the afternoon High Tea (at $AU100pp this was very extravagant for us). However, we were not disappointed. From the uniforms worn by the staff, starting with the exotic costumes worn by the staff who opened our car door, to the opulence of the... More
