Opened in February 2005, the building was designed by John Elliot, the British architect well known for his contribution in the Middle East. Located at the West end of the Abu Dhabi Corniche Emirates Palace is one of the most luxurious hotels in the world.
The central body spreads into two wings that are 1km wide. The structure hosts almost 400 hundred rooms and suites, the majority are decorated in marble and gold. Each one of them is served by five employees, thus reaching 2000 employees for the whole palace.
The admission is free to visit the Emirates Palace lobbies and exhibitions, which are located on the right end coming from the main entrance, after the Caviar Bar. One of the permanent exhibition displays Saadiyat Island, the island of culture, as it is expected to become the Cultural District hosting eight museums once its construction will be completed in 2020.
