UAE - Abu Dhabi
Known as the third most expensive hotel in the world to build, the Emirates Palace cost approximately US$3 billion to construct. It will cost around US$290 dollars a night to stay at this luxurious, record-breaking hotel – this being the hotel’s special offer! Nevertheless, every corner of the Emirates Palace is a sight to behold, and the money will be well spent.
The Emirates Palace Hotel is the second seven-star hotel in the world, with the other being the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. The Palace opened its doors in 2005, and it has 394 luxury rooms and suites to accommodate visitors coming to Abu Dhabi. Some of the most famous regulars at the Emirates Palace are royalty. Indeed, the penthouse of the hotel consists of six Ruler Suites, which are made to accommodate rulers, such as the Sheikhs of the different Emirates that make up the UAE. The smallest suite at the hotel is 110 square metres (1,184 square feet).
