As you approach the Emirates Palace, excitement – and anticipation – will begin to course through your body.  This is definitely not  a place you step inside every day! If you walk towards this magical hotel at night, the facades and iconic dome shimmer in majestic royal purple and blue light. Fitting, as it was once a place reserved  only for royalty. But keep looking – the colors, like Adu Dhabi, are not static – they will soon change to another equally enchanting combination.

And then there are the fountains. As you pause to enjoy the warm evening air, and take in one-of-a-kind “Orient” atmosphere, the dancing silvery plumes will almost hypnotize you. A moment becomes five, and you almost have to tear yourself away from the show. After all, “The Palace” awaits!  

As you enter the grand halls, you’ll be amazed by the sheer size and grandeur all around you. Walls and columns soar upward, to huge gilt domes high above. Feel the breath of luxury, like a warm breeze, surrounding you.  Marvel at the sumptuous interior, grand halls, and golden facades, as you walk in the footsteps of royalty, oil-rich sheiks, and world-famous celebrities. You are on a mission, on your way to indulgence in the most luxurious and magical place imaginable.
