We wanted to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary and as a surprise for my wife l choose the opulent Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. It took 20,000 workers 3years to build at a cost of $3 billion dollars! It is 1 kilometre from wing to wing and covers 100 hectors. It has 1.3 km of private beach and 394 rooms and suits. 128 kitchens and pantries serve 16 restaurants and bars. We had a pearl room on the west wing overlooking the gardens and pool area with sea views and white sandy beach. The room was spacious comfortable and some of the amenities included 24hr butler service, daily newspaper and replenishment of fruit and water. They have a vast choice of pillows for your comfort. It was indeed a great experience although some of the 1002 chandeliers the largest weighing 2.5 tons are over the top as are the two wall hung display carpets weighing 1 ton each. Prices in the restaurants and bars are in keeping with the hotels decor and opulence with breakfast for two costing us £80!!! All in all the staff were very pleasant and helpful, and on the day of our anniversary 6 butlers came into our room with a bottle of champagne singing “congratulations” – my wife was well embarrassed. If you are prepared to push the boat out for a special occasion this is the place to stay. If you are visiting Abu Dhabi and wanted to visit the Emirates Place to admire its splendour and decor have a coffee in the “Le Cafe” located on level 4. Here you can sample a cappuccino sprinkled with edible gold !!!!!
