Play out your five-star Arabian fantasy
Every bit as palatial as the name suggests, Emirates Palace is fit for royalty. Sitting on the western end of the Abu Dhabi Corniche, it is one of the city’s most iconic landmarks.
With an idyllic beachside location coupled with 85m hectares of immaculately manicured gardens, the Emirates Palace is the ideal venue to enjoy a change of scenery away from the F1 Racetrack.
Located just thirty minutes' outside Yas Marina, those who have opted for a private yacht charter during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will find a selection of some of the finest restaurants in the region at the Emirates Palace.
The outdoor facilities, as well as its expansive gardens, give the hotel an air of seclusion, but its central location means guests are well-placed to explore the delights of the city.
No less than 144 ornate domes ensure Emirates Palace never go unnoticed while the interior is every bit as elaborate. Oozing luxury, the hotel combines vibrant lighting, gleaming marble and floor-to-ceiling gold for an unrivalled sense of grandeur throughout, from the communal areas to the 394 rooms.
The luxurious on-site spa impresses with its Moroccan hamman and dedicated menu headlined by 24-carat gold facials and diamond infused oils. Guests can then get back to nature in the 85 hectares of gardens, which promise tranquil strolls, yoga and wildlife watching.
Another of the hotel’s highlights is its dining. Of the nine restaurants, Mezlai is the regional favourite due to its focus on Emirati cuisine. BBQ Al Qasr offers romantic beachside dining, Asian-inspired eatery Hakkasan is popular for brunch and Mezzaluna has picked up awards for its Italian fare.
For a truly unforgettable stay, choose butler service in one of their majestic suites and embrace the old-world splendour of the hotel.
If you're choosing an Abu Dhabi Grand Prix hospitality package, the Emirates Palace makes a great base for your stay during the F1 race week, with the added benefit of being in close proximity to Yas Marina.
