Really good high tea.

Rich and beautiful palace, best place for a high tea. Make sure you check the palace opening hours. Visiting on the weekends slots can be really tricky some times.

Afternoon tea at the Emirates Palace was really special. We didn't book but had no problem getting a place to sit and order this. There was plenty of choice in sandwiches and cakes and a small band was playing whilst we were eating which was lovely. We weren't rushed at all and the service as you would expect was impeccable....

Popped in for a few drinks on my visit and was really impressed with this place. The walk up alone is worth it to appreciate the architecture then you go inside and see that no expense has been spared. Drinks and snacks are great and actually cheaper than the hotel I stayed at.

Impressive building and a great place to have an afternoon tea. A bit on the pricey side, but that can be expected of an establishment of this standard.

If you're a minimalist then you won't like it here. If it looks like gold, then it probably is gold, or at least gold leaf. The design and architecture is stunning, the grounds are beautiful and really well maintained. The fountains are very striking and lit up at night, some of them in different colours. The decor is lavish and... More

If you thought you have seen it all, go to this hotel. Free parking, free entry, no shorts or flip flops allowed. Very friendly staff, and inside all gold and marble. At aed 60 take their signature cappucino with gold flakes, and yes, you can drink it. Over the top, but hey, you only live once.

It is one of the most famous and expensive hotel in Abu Dhabi. Like sitting area in its lobby. Long beach and great views. Good place to be visited but expensive to stay.

The grounds of the hotel and the building itself were gorgeous but I kind of thought walking around the inside was a bit of a waste of time. Nothing really to see unless youre a hotel guest.
