My private Abu Dhabi
Contributed by Jens Hoffmann
Arriving at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
At the heart of this desert area lies the Emirates Palace.
Different strokes for different folks, yes for sure. It is Abu Dhabi’s main and iconic landmark, showcasing Arabian culture and hospitality at its finest.
Emirates Palace offers a magical location to enjoy the quintessence of award-winning 5-star luxury hospitality and authentic local experiences. From 394 luxurious rooms and suites, to culinary cuisine, Emirates Palace is the definition of an unrivaled and Arabian fantasy.
Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, the Capital of the United Arab Emirates and only 40 minutes from the airport, Emirates Palace is grand in both its design and myriad of offerings. From a 1.3 km pristine beach, landscaped pools and a private marina overlooking a natural bay, Emirates Palace is perfect for a holiday stay or for events and meetings that make a statement, with some of the city’s largest hotel conference centres and the latest technology.
The luxury rooms and suites are nestled within traditional domes which span 85 hectares of lush landscaped gardens. There is an impressive Anantara Spa with 16 internationally renowned restaurants including Haakasan and Mezlai, the UAE’s first traditional Emirati restaurant.
The hotel regularly welcomes dignitaries and celebrities, events including the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, the World Sports Awards and concerts from Gordon Brown and Elton John.
Truly a luxurious destination resort located on a pristine sandy beach spanning kilometers along the turquoise shores of Abu Dhabi.
With culturally-inspired design and the finest luxury offering, this resort was the first of its kind in the region and is now a haven for international holiday and business travellers.
The beach and sporting facilities are second to none and include the Emirates Palace Marina, a destination for the world’s super yachts.
Kempinski is a founding member of the Global Hotel Alliance (GHA): the world’s largest alliance of independent hotels.
Its worth it to try the Palace and enjoy the desert.
