The Emirates Palace has sometimes been referred to as a 7-star hotel, and even though it’s really a 5-star venue, it certainly feels like something special. It’s ultra-luxury, with tonnes of marble and gold decorating its rooms, plus a private beach and two spas for its guests to enjoy. Visitors can experience a taste of opulence in one of the restaurants and cafés or just visit the outside for a photo opportunity on a city tour of Abu Dhabi.

Dress to ImpressSome areas of the Emirates Palace, especially certain restaurants, operate a smart casual dress code. Just to be on the safe side, make sure that you’re wearing clothes that are suitable for all areas. Men should wear long trousers in all cafés and restaurants and women should ensure that their shoulders and knees are covered.

Try the CoffeeThe easiest way to get a look inside the Emirates Palace (without spending a fortune on a room) is to reserve a time to sample the Palace Cappuccino, a coffee topped with real 24-carat gold.
Visit on a City TourMany guided tours of Abu Dhabi include a stop to look at the Emirates Palace, usually only from the outside. Its opulent exterior makes for a great photo, whether you make it inside the door or not. You’ll then go on to visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Yas Island, and several other Abu Dhabi highlights.

The Emirates Palace Hotel: The Height of Luxury

The Emirates Palace opened in 2005 as one of the most luxurious 5-star hotels in the United Arab Emirates. Its 394 rooms are furnished in gold and marble, with six suites being reserved for royalty and heads of state. The hotel also boasts two helicopter landing pads, two spas, and nearly a mile (1.3 km) of private beach. Ownership of the hotel changed to Mandarin Oriental on January 1, 2020, and as a result, the hotel will be undergoing two years of renovation. During this time, certain facilities may not be available or may be reserved for hotel guests only.
