You won’t find many places more opulent than Emirates Palace. Nestled in a quiet pocket of bustling Abu Dhabi, it has its own private marina, a secluded beach and more than 100 hectares of carefully landscaped gardens to explore.
If you’re in the mood for an active break, Emirates Palace’s sports and leisure facilities will have something for you. Work up a sweat in one of two Technogyms, stretch out in a Vinyasa or Hatha yoga class, or practise your serve on one of four tennis courts. If you prefer to go it alone, head to the resort’s six-kilometre cycling and jogging trail, which winds through its immaculate gardens. You can even explore the calm waters off the resort’s private beach, as you’ll have complimentary access to snorkelling, surfing and other watersports equipment.
Emirates Palace’s sprawling grounds house 14 places to eat or drink. And you’re likely to find something for every single taste here. Head to Hakkasan for a vibrant taste of modern China, or save your visit for the evening to discover international DJs. In the mood for a taste of the sea? Sayad serves up the local catch of the day, to be enjoyed inside or out on the scenic terrace. Or you can bring any day to a sophisticated end with rum and cigars at Emirates Palace’s Havana Club lounge.
Nibble artisanal chocolate, freshly-baked pastries and macarons during afternoon tea, or listen to classical performances as you sip your 24-carat-gold Palace Cappuccino.
Dine under a grand arched ceiling at Emirates Palace’s all-day dining spot. Pick your favourites from the seasonal international menu and eat overlooking the marina on the outdoor terrace.
You’ll find north Italian dishes at Mezzaluna, one of Abu Dhabi’s best Italian eateries. Sample lobster pasta and stuffed lamb loin, or share a tasty pizza.
Discover fresh seafood and contemporary dishes at Sayad. You’ll feel as though you’re dining under the waves here, as light is diffused through blue glass panels for an aquatic ambience.
Sample freshly grilled seafood and prime cuts of meat under the shelter of spacious gazebos. Listen to the sounds of the waves as you sit down to dinner.
This dining room embodies Arabian luxe, and the decor was even inspired by Bedouin tents. Dine on traditional Middle Eastern dishes, surrounded by ornate lanterns and stained glass windows.
Grab a table in one of the secluded enclaves and tuck into contemporary Indian dishes from world-renowned chef Hemant Oberoi overlooking Emirates Palace’s Marina.
Drink or dine at this atmospheric eatery under the glow of backlit blue glass and spotlights. You can sit inside the carved wooden cage or listen to live DJ sets on the terrace.
Al fresco Lebanese dining is on the cards at Mawal. Grab a table on the quiet garden terrace, or get stuck into mezze platters and mixed grills under the chandeliers inside.
Listen to Latin American music as you sip quality rum, try one of the bar’s award-winning cigars, or sink into the leather armchairs with a nightcap.
Nibble tasty bites any time hunger strikes or watch the cityscape light up across the sea from this outdoor lounge space. It’s the ideal place to unwind come evening.
Bring the whole group to Cascades – a family-friendly bar close to the resort’s waterpark. Let the little ones splash while you refuel with a refreshing drink or tasty meal.
This quiet poolside bar is a great spot to take it easy after a day in the sun, whether you fancy a cool drink or a light bite.
As you might expect from a resort with ‘palace’ in its name, everything here feels pretty luxurious. Each room and suite is infused with plenty of Middle Eastern charm, from the patterned arches of the balcony, to the carved marble sinks in the bathroom. And the view you’ll get from your private balcony or terrace is a pretty regal sight, too.
