The Basics

Overlooking its 0.8-mile (1.3-kilometer) private beach, Emirates Palace is a modern Arabian showstopper, with soaring arches, domes, and windows fronted by fountains and a gigantic staircase. The hotel measures just over a half-mile (1 kilometer) from wing to wing, and features vast halls; gold, crystal, and marble décor; Swarovski chandeliers; and 394 rooms and 92 suites.

Visitors not ready to splurge on a stay can experience the hotel in other ways: eating at an on-site hotel restaurant or booking a spa treatment. Many Abu Dhabi city tours include an exterior photo op or time to explore the hotel's public areas, while others include lunch at one of the restaurants.

This is a MUST DO!
The entire experience with Hussain was amazing. He was so informative. He even pulled over on the way to Abu Dhabi so we could take photos of all the amazing scenery. He made sure we were all dressed appropriately and got the perfect photos while at the mosque. He was very nice and ensured we all had a great time. He sat for tea with us at the Emirate Palace and gave us a brief and interesting history lesson. He even accommodated the 5 year old we had with us! I would 1000% recommend this trip! This is how you should experience Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with Coffee at Emirates Palace from Dubai
A well organised tour, easy pickup, good local knowledge while travelling to and from. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a wonder. On the other end of the scale is the Coffee at Emirates Palace. Overall a day well worth it, in appreciating the country.

Le Café at iconic Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi
Beautiful hotel to visit. The Golden Cappuccino at Le Cafe was lovely, however we did not find the staff overly friendly. We did not realize you can visit the Palace Hotel without reserving the Golden Cappuccino. We also thought we would be allowed to visit the gardens if we reserved coffee, but this was not the cae.
Beautiful Palace

Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with Coffee at Emirates Palace from Dubai
Amazing tour!!! Emirates Palace was beautiful! I wish we could have access the beach area but it is only for guests. The coffee and cheesecake was great, I felt like royalty. The Mosque was beautifully historic.
Nice guide

Mr. Yose speak clear English and guided very well. While sightseeing to Abu Dhabi, you should visit to Grand Mosque and Emirate palace. I would like to change a coffee to gold leaf cappuccino.

When to Get There

Nonresidents can view the hotel’s communal areas free, any time. That said, it’s best to avoid weekends—Fridays and Saturdays—or during any big event, as the hotel may refuse entry if it’s busy. To ensure admission, you may want to reserve a table at a restaurant or the café.

Top Tips for Visiting Emirates Palace

To experience the opulence of Emirates Palace’s without staying there, pop in to enjoy its signature Palace Cappuccino, sprinkled with 24-carat gold flakes. Otherwise, up the luxury with an afternoon tea of scones, sandwiches, and dessert cakes with premium teas or coffees. Both are served at Le Café, and you’re advised to book ahead due to high demand.
