The palace is a hotel, you can walk around and take pictures. Very fancy, predominantly golden decoration. The garden is beautiful. No enter fees.

Loved the afternoon tea nice to see the hotel also as it is beautiful, it is beautifully lit up at night so worth staying to see it.

A must see and visit whilst in ADH... Stunning hotel, beautiful landscaped gardens, architectural water falls at the front entrance which are a great feature, and great for a photo opportunity. Superlative on the interior, albeit your access is somewhat limited, but nonetheless, still worth the time to visit. Dine in one of the restaurants, not hugely expensive, but worthy... More

First realize, you don't get access to this hotel by having tea! You can only walk around inside on the ground floor. They don't let you go outside the back (towards the beach). Tea was very nice but super heavy on the "sweets" and we couldn't finish. The highlight was a fantastic cappuccino sprinkled with 24K gold! Heck, seemed like... More

I have been to Emirates Palace over the years since it opened. It is of course very impressive but as it is so large, difficult to make it personal and welcoming. Managment should be more visible and as at the Four Seasons promoting service and remembering names as nice details.

We went here for coffee and cakes this year in Le Café. There was a large selection of cakes, many with small gold flakes. The staff were very helpful and were good at making us feel special.

We had to make reservations to get inside to see the palace. Our guide made us reservations to have the gold flaked coffee! Cross that off our bucket list! The rest of the palace was so beautiful! A must see. There are always art exhibits inside to see. Must see the portrait of Sheikh in solid gold.

The whole palace felt like opulence for opulence sake. If you skipped this, you won't feel like you missed something.

The former residence to the Emir, the Emirates Palace is now a 7-star hotel in AD. Truly impressive to see the grounds (outside) and then walk in to check out the inside of the hotel. There's a cafe and a restaurant (the gold leaf coffee is supposed to be the staple drink to try) inside as well as a few... More
