Emirates Palace Gates Open


April 2005, Abu Dhabi

It is difficult to give an apt description to the Emirates Palace. String together a host of superlative adjectives, and somehow you still feel that you have fallen short of the mark. Its majesty and beauty is unrivalled. A palace for all seasons, it is certain to endure the sands of time, in the vein of India's Taj Mahal. Hosting 302 luxury rooms and 92 suites, it is the most impressive resort and conference venue ever to be built in the Middle East.

Operated by luxury hotel group Kempinski Hotels & Resorts, it showcases the beauty of Arabian culture, adhering to traditional themes and has a natural affinity with the national identity of the United Arab Emirates. Rising from the sand, the colours of the Emirates Palace façade represent the different sand nuances found in the Arabian Desert. The Palace is an architectural wonder and an international landmark- boasting a staggering 114 domes, all covered in mosaic glass tiles. Its elaborate design and unparalleled facilities were created with the sole purpose of whisking its guests into a world of regal majesty where their every whim will be fulfilled and their every need catered to.

Located on a 1.3 km stretch of Abu Dhabi's most beautiful sandy beach, Emirates Palace is a luxury retreat with superlative leisure facilities already including two stunning pool landscapes.
