Tailored to perfection, seven-star hotels provide an experience that epitomizes ultimate luxury. And from the brigade of white-gloved butlers to Rolls Royce fleet, designer interiors to idyllic island vistas, these hotels – whether Dubai’s Burj Al Arab or Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace – are quite simply unparalleled, in their sights and in their service.
The standard star system officially allows up to five stars for any hotel, but these architectural masterpieces and luxury havens exceed any other resort, earning them the crowned title for the world’s best hotels and, deservedly so, both these properties feature as Goway’s UAE ‘Stays of Distinction’.
With its stark contrast combining glittering skyscrapers and rolling desert dunes, a trip to Abu Dhabi is an experience beyond comparison. But even more exciting is its seven star hotel, the Emirates Palace. A stay here involves everything from palace lounges and limousine services to luxury spas. Wander the 1.3km of pristine beach or test your tennis skills on one of the four floodlit courts.
The Emirates Palace has been home to royalty, world leaders and celebrities. With it’s lush landscape, exceptional service and exquisite surrounds, VIP treatment with a personal butler service and in-room treats, all guests are made to feel like royalty.
Those looking to truly indulge can enjoy the Palace’s myriad internationally-acclaimed restaurants. From Mezlai, the first Emirati Restaurant in the UAE, to the Time Out award-winning Italian Mezzaluna, the glamorous Hakkasan and the traditional Lebanese Diwan L’Auberge, Emirates Palace offers something different and exciting for each and every night of your stay.
A wealth of sports and entertainment facilities are on offer, including tennis, watersports, scuba diving, camel-back safaris, falconry displays, wildlife walks and much, much more.
In keeping with the seven-star standards, the hotel’s hallways shimmer with gold and silver mosaic tiles beneath a thousand Swarovski chandeliers, and even guests in standard rooms enjoy private butlers and Hermès amenities. It’s no wonder the $3 billion, 394-room hotel is among the most expensive ever built.
