The Palace Hotel
If you’ve ever wanted to feel like a prince or princess, a walk across these marble floors listening to live music on piano or harp at the Emirates Palace Hotel will make you feel quite regal. A jewel of the United Arab Emirates, the Kempinski-operated hotel is the nearest experience to living like royalty that anyone might have.
Host to foreign delegations, including heads of state, the Palace is as luxurious as you can imagine, with 114 domes—the largest artfully designed and coated with gold. Marble, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, and gold cover much of the palace. Guests can even eat and drink gold leaf in their cappuccinos and sweet potato fries!
A $3 billion architectural achievement, Emirates Palace has hosted musical events and recently appeared in a movie, The Fast and Furious 7.
