Emirates Palace | Abu Dhabi

    Oh my god, this looks like one of the best hotel I have seen – even if actually I would find a bit strict the dress code… The room is just perfect.
    Is the same Hakkasan of London? I have been there when it was not yet mainstream, now in London you need weeks of advance in the reservation as it is the usual place for dining of Z-listers from reality shows and personally speaking also the quality worse a bit. Glad you have great food around!

      Yes, Hakkasan exists in London as well. I haven't tried it yet but I might if given the opportunity.

    Impressive hotel and a very luxurious one too. Everything is absolute perfect!

    Wow, this is a super luxurious place. So many rules too. But that is their country, we have to respect their rules. The food looks fabulous.

    What a stunning place to stay! the UAE is becoming such a popular destination, even one of my old coworkers had mentioned it and asked why I haven't visited yet. This makes me want to book the next plane ticket there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow! This place looks so amazing and lavish. Would've been interesting to stay there!

    What a stunning hotel and your meal in Hakkasan looks delicious. I would consider visiting though would bring plenty of clothes to cover up with as you did, so as to respect local custom

    That's an impressive place, really amazing! Cleaning at 4 or 5 pm is strange, I grant, but because of the size of the hotel I suppose they had no choice. But the rest of the staying was fantastic, I can see! I like meze very much and everything looked delicious! I am sure you will go back there one day, since you liked it so much! Maybe November is a good month, cooler!

    It sure looks so grand and luxurious there! I enjoyed reading your post to prepare myself if I ever go. It seems to be a conservative place as far as how one dresses. I feel like I would get a side eye for the clothes I wear. Definitely taking a mental note that summer wouldn't be an ideal time to visit.

    Well this place sounds a little daunting. I'd hate it if people kept asking for my room number. I understand why they might but damn it, it would irritate me to no end!

    Everything about this hotel is stunning, almost otherworldly… I think the rules felt a bit odd, but then it's a different country, so got to follow them. x

    It certainly looks like an exquisite place to stay — the chandelier and the interiors in general are gorgeous! Yes, it's always good to research and remember about the customs of different countries. This destination seems to be growing more popularity lately. <3

    Alright, this post is immediately getting bookmarked. If I ever find myself over there, I'll most definitely be booking to stay here – what a fabulous hotel! I've always favoured hotels with luxurious design schemes featuring earthy colours, for some reason it makes a stay much more relaxing that way ๐Ÿ™‚ A truly excellent post, thanks for sharing these photos!

    Looks and sounds like an interesting experience, but I would also feel like in a golden cage. I usually prefer going out, exploring the city, but I've heard that this ain't that possible in Dubai. The hotel looks impressive, I'd feel like an ant there. The food looks great!

    Wow… all the gold and opulence! It looks like a place for royalty. It's no wonder they had a strict dress code. The middle eastern food all looks so yummy. Not many people are open to such cuisine but I do love them! I can imagine why you stayed at the hotel almost the whole time. It looks like there is just so much to bask in and lots of food choices.

    It looks so beautiful and luxurious in there! From your photos it looks quite empty though..

    Very luxurious. Maybe he gave your high heels the evil eye coz he wanted them on himself. Hahaha. Was just in Hakkasan Mayfair over the weekend for a birthday lunch. Sumptuous food. One of the waiters came running towards me to apologise when he saw that I had to refill me bowl of rice. I told him he needn't worry about it. I can imagine that there are high-maintenance customers who've complained before that their bowls weren't refilled. Try it next time. I love the stairs. There's a projection of water running through it ๐Ÿ™‚
