Emirates Palace

Al Ras Al Akhdar , Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

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.

Something worth Experiencing

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.

Abu Dhabi Tour: Sheik Zayed Mosque, Emirates Palace, Marina Mall
This was a great way to see so many different attractions in a very efficient manner. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because there were a couple of venues that were closed ( due to Ramadan) and we did not go into the Emirates Palace, but they compensated by making other stops. This is a great tour with friendly tour guides.

Be sure to visit the Emirates Place Hotel in Abu Dhabi

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.

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.

Abu Dhabi Tour from Dubai With Gold Coffee At Emirates Palace
Mr. Khan was very informative and patient. It was a fun-filled day with multiple stops. I do believe the tour should be updated in general. There were some stops that just made no sense so we chose to skip. Overall, it was a great experience.

Abu Dhabi Tour from Dubai With Gold Coffee At Emirates Palace
Great day out, only 6 on the tour so it was very social. We had time to see the attractions and the restuarant lunch was really nice. Mosque stop was awesome, very fast trip back to Dubai. Perfect way to see Abu Dhabi in a day. Would recommend this tour.

Abu Dhabi Tour: Sheik Zayed Mosque, Emirates Palace, Marina Mall
The tour turned out to be longer then originally booked for but that turned out for the better. The tour covered more then what we had booked for. The only part of the tour that we were on our own was when we toured the Mosque. We were given the highlights of the Mosque and we basically toured the Mosque on our own. The tour in it self was very rewarding and as mentioned, took in more sights then what we originally booked for.

Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with Coffee at Emirates Palace from Dubai
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.

Abu Dhabi Tour: Sheik Zayed Mosque, Emirates Palace, Marina Mall
This one was great. Our guide, Vishal, was very informative and helpful. Gave us enough time at every place to look around and take pictures (not rushing). He is also very cheerful so we werent boring at all. This tour is a must.

Beautiful place. Just make sure you adhere to the Mosque rules in terms of proper dress. My friend and her daughter were denied access.

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.
