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

Amazing, and an experience of a lifetime. We had high tea which was superb. Make sure you book for this in advance though.

Seriously. This is the second richest place I have been in all my life (the Queens Crown Jewels in the UK just beats it). However, this is a hotel, complete with reception and guests. The colour scheme is gold, naturally. Then out of no where, towards the back on the left behind reception there's this amazing vending machine. It's tied... More

Not many luxury hotels allows you to have a look inside so i think its worth doing so in Emirates Palace . Everyone inside was nice and friendly and made me really welcome :) 15 min wander around was enough tho . It was a highlight of my visit to Abu dhabi along with the Grand Mosque :)

Folks, the beauty in which marble was used throughout is impressive. The parking lot was spacious and everyone we ran into was always friendly and welcoming. To say this place is average is simply ignorant. This place is grand. One must admire the arquitecture and the perfect decor within. Definitely palace quality. We weren't able to appreciate the restaurants or... More

It's impressive but impersonal. Interesting to visit, but no interest in staying there. the beach is artificial which means no sight in the water. Service great, but a meal there is enough to taste the special atmosphere.
