Beautiful place for a visit. Stunning hotel and you must have the Emirates 23k cappuccino made with camels milk, delicious. An indulgent treat but beautifully sereved on a silver tray with a mini muffin and a date, beautiful surroundings.

The Emirates Palace is not just by name, it is definitely a well designed palace with a blend of royal and modern touch. All is glittering and goldy once you step into the hotel. The whole team is welcoming and our checkin was very fast...More

Features---Make a reservation for lunch and or buffet----The Foyer and reception area are more than perceived! Luncheon sandwiches were excellent. Service was a bit slow and disorganized. A must visit!

The palace is one of the must places to visit in Abu Dhabi . It is grand and really royal to walk and if you can, stay and dine at the place. Live music, private beach, etc adds to its attraction.

Men will get in with shorts before 12 noon but best to wear long trousers. Women do not need head covering but like all the emirates should dress modestly with arms covered, especially during Ramadan
