Stayed here in July when we could afford the summer rates. Kids loved it! The children's pool is great with a lazy river and slides. The beach was right there and so were some camels that the kids could be around and ride. Emirates Palace itself is over the top but it was fun to be able to stay there and enjoy the luxury! The adults pool was nice as well as the beach was clean and pretty. Thank goodness for the buggys shuttling you from one end of the hotel to the other. The place is massive.

It is incredible what money can buy… unfortunately the hotei is just too big and therefore does not really gives a comfortable feeling for leisure travel.. there are definitely hotels that suits my expectation of an Arabic experience. Absolutely stunning in grandness, perfect service and a amazing choice of restaurants.

Pool and garden is nice too.

A big palace huge and luxurious those are the first impressions after staying one night at this wonderful Hotel.
An amazing private beach, Swimming pool area and huge private gardens.
An impressive amount of domes that line the whole hotel, a private collection of antiques lining the passageways what more can you ask for ?
Maybe a private butler in your room? This was also provided for.
Dont leave without trying the 24Karat gold cappucino and the chocolate cake laced with real gold leafes.
Special thanks to Amina for showing us the Princely suits upstairs.
All in all an amazing experience. Abu Dhabi rules.

This hotel is worth all the hype. We just spent a week there on our honeymoon. Having spent a week in New York for our wedding, we were totally ready for a week relaxing in luxury....and that is exactly what we got.

We visited three of the hotel's restaurants....Le Vendome, Etoilles and Mezlai aswell as the Caviar Bar for drinks. I would recommend all of these, but particularly Mezlai for it's unique Emirati food.

We stayed at the East Wing of the hotel, and the pool with it's Las Brisas bar was just perfect.

The hotel itself is really beautiful. Very tastefully designed, apart from the lights on the arch at nighttime...really not in keeping with the elegance of the rest of the hotel. The gardens are beautiful for a walk and the beach is picturesque and quiet.

Excellent Hotel with great facilities.

Brought wifey here for surpised bday trip..kinda given only after sign to Em palace in AD, so good thing. The hotel made it special and we stayed in a room suite in the palace itself. Very grand. Had a whole wing to ourself, ususally designated for Foreign Officials and Singers like Jay-Z who apparently stayed in the same Wing (With 5 rooms, Dining Area Kitchen in case your cook comes with you!!!...dont think a normal person would ever bring one!!)

So worth the spend. Activities like Mountain Biking, Swimming, Tennis, etc are great!!

Hakassan obviously one of the best chinese restaurants in the world so good to book early!

My stay in Emirates palace was to celebrate Valentines Day with my husband. I had planned a surprise for him. it was beautiful, red roses, welcome drink. hospitality was extraordinary, the room was nice and clean, the curtains , TV , lights would operate through a touch pad remote, you can reach the other wing by a beautiful walk on the beach and if tired after the walk take the Electronic buggy easily available to take you back to your wing. I recommend anyone who visits in fact people residing in abu dhabi (me being one of them) should plan a stay in Emirates palace or atleast do pay a visit to this beautiful golden palace.
