  • Pretty to look at, but not much to do unless you are staying there. A nice view of the Etihad towers from the balcony though so go up just for the pictures. The fountains are also a nice touch, but do...  more »
  • Walking through the gardens, admire the lobby and the lounges, stroll through the Palace is a real pleasure. The place is beautiful, clean and chic and caring staff with respect to the visitors of the moment.

  • We haven't lived in this hotel, visited as one of the objects for inspection in Abu Dhabi. At dress code for visitors-in shorts, beach shljopancah, topics-not allowed. Walked in front of the Palace, pofotografirovalis, went inside for inspection. The children really enjoyed it.

  • Emirates Palace is one of a kind. It is rich in culture, luxury, good ambiance, talent and wonderful views from concrete tall buildings to the oceans. Experience fine dining, explicit display of gems crafted into animals such as elephant, swan, and falcon. The architecture is definitely fantastic. In fact, even the washing area of the rest room does not give you a feeling that you are in a restroom. It is clean and welcomes tourists. However when coming here please do not wear slippers or short shorts and taking pictures is also allowed. There is no entrance fee. It is usually open on weekdays. From the outside to the inner part of the palace, your eyes will be amazed. It's truly amazing!
  • A must see tourism place with free entry from Saturday to Wednesday. Families allowed on weekend days too. World class interior. Great welcome cheers you. Hotels available to stay. UAE ministry have many offices here. You can spent 1-2 hours easily. Best time in evening. Great outer view too with fountains and national flag.
  • Emirates Palace consists of 394 residences, including 92 suits and 22 residential suites. The residences are spread over two wings as well as a primary central building. The majority of the suites are furnished in gold and marble. The main primary building houses an expansive marble floor and a large patterned dome above, picked out in gold. The penthouse floor has six Rulers' Suites which are reserved exclusively for dignitaries, such as royalty. The facilities include 2 spa facilities, over 40 meeting rooms, a 1.3 km long beach, a marina, 2 helicopter landing pads, a ballroom that accommodates up to 2500 people, various luxury shops and international restaurants.
  • The palace hotel is absolutely beautiful, I didn't stay there but we had the 24 carat gold coffees which were lovely although a bit of a novelty. We also ordered scones which came out beautifully presented and they were definitely worth the price! The waiter did actually spill the coffee on me however and I was only offered a new coffee and an apology. I would have expected more from a 5 star hotel. There were renovation being carried out at the back of the hotel at the time and we had no access to that area. Overall was a good experience to have the coffees and have a look around the hotel although some areas are for residents only.
  • One of the most beautiful, luxurious, classy building (and surroundings) I have ever seen in my life. Both day and night, but specially at night. The gardens (you can actually feel the smell of the flowers) and the fountain do help with the overall 1st reaction of awe!
