I was at the Emirates Palace for just a dinner party and I must say the magnificence of this palace is truly unbelievable. The domes, the architecture and the ambiance is unparalleled. Truly astounding!

It's big, gaudy and brash to some, but I find it an absolute sanctuary, luxury treat for a weary traveller, and absolutely fascinating. Not sure if it's still there, but there was an exhibition about the future of Abu Dhabi - eye popping stuff if it turns into reality!

You need to know that you need to be properly dressed (no shorts or sleeveless shirts) before you can enter this upscale hotel. You don't have to wear your cocktaildress and smoking either. We went dressed in trousers and t-shirts and that was ok. It was nice to enjoy the luxury of these surroundings. We sat down in the lounge to have an affordable drink in big comfortable chairs and were served as if we were kings. A lady was playing the harp in the lounge.

The palace is really beautiful and is so nice to take a long relaxing stroll and marvel at it's beauty . I had high tea at Le Cafe - it was amazing ! So many delicious treats and cakes all sprinkled with real gold ! Really nice for the ladies , and men - if your lady is a girly girl you would certainly gain many brownie points if you took your gf to high tea . The tea experience was just darling

A grand, tacky souless hotel. Worth a look, nothing else. Staff and up themselves, for no reason. Nice from the outside, inside totally hideous.
