This is a new hotel, but probably unlike any other hotel that you might have visited before. This is a hotel with a zoo in middle! This is a perfect hotel for any adults with an interest in animals and perfect for ALL children. If you are travelling from Abu Dhabi to Dubai and want a rest from the lights and noise of the two cities, then this is the place to be.
The Emirates Park Resort is a private zoo of a high standard and well worth at least one day of your time and if you have children this should be a must when you are in the area. All manner of animals from many different areas of the world are to be seen there and all in close up! The children will meet "educators" that will help your children feed the smaller goats, sheep and the like, but certainly not the lions :-)
After the animals have been viewed (allow at least several hours) there is a large indoor area with many amusements that will keep the children FULLY occupied for at least one full day.
Within the park there are numerous cafes and restaurants with a new food court being built that should be completed in about December 2012 / January 2013. By the way in the Kids Park Cafe (where there are many birds to be seen) you will find what I believe are the world's best tasting donuts. Made fresh right there in front of you with a great range of topping. Try at least one without any topping they beat Dunkin Donuts by a mile. I asked how they can make such a good tasting donut and they told me they are 100% natural i.e. NO chemicals, give them try.
The hotel side of the zoo is also wonderful offering very comfortable rooms that are quiet day and night. A large bedroom and bed plus a good size lounge. The normal fridge, kettle, cups, a/c etc and a brilliant shower in the bathroom.
When you walk out of your room you will see a giraffe right there in front of you (on the other side of a barrier) be prepared for a great day in front of you.
