ABU DHABI - Famouly bailed out its rivalry neighbor Dubai at USD $10 billion dollars during the 2009 debt crisis while selling itself as the region's cultural capital. While Dubai feature the World's Tallest Building - The Burj Khalifa, Abu Dhabi is proud to build the World's most expensive hotel as well as to be the first to create a gold dispensing ATM machine. Talk about Luxury Travel, Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the best countries to visit!
When I visited Dubai, I took a private limousine to visit Abu Dhabi which is about 1 hour 15 mins drive away. I booked a 1 night stay at the famous Emirates Palace which is a 7 star luxury hotel managed by Kempinski hotels. Emirates Place cost approximately USD $3 billion dollars to build and is one of the most expensive hotels in the World. It is an iconic landmark of Abu Dhabi which covers 850,000 square metres area. The hotel is owned and built by the Abu Dhabi government. The entire hotel is lavishly decorated with gold, fine marble and crystal chandeliers. In Dec 2010, the hotel featured the World's Most Expensive Christmas Tree costing USD $11 million dollars. The Christmas tree was decorated with 181 diamonds, pearls, sapphires, emeralds and other precious stones!
Note: Emirates Palace used to be No. 1 as the Most Expensive hotel built in the World but Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore has clinched that top spot now, costing USD $5.5 billion dollars to build.
Designed by world renowned architect John Elliot, Emirates Palace features a 1.3 km of white pristine beach only for private hotel guests, 2 huge lagoon swimming pools with water slides, 4 tennis courts, 2 gyms, private spa, private jogging trails etc. The hotel consists of 394 rooms and suites, 40 meeting and conference rooms and personal butler to cater to your every need. I remember I paid about USD $1,500 for a 1 night stay in the year 2011. The good news is that the price of booking a hotel stay has dropped and it has become more affordable to stay in this hotel. Currently, the cost of booking a 1 night stay starts from USD$750 up to USD$15,000 a night.

When I first arrived at the hotel, I was greeted with very friendly service staff with big smiles on their faces. They also told me to sit and offer me some Arabian tea. Afterwhich, I took a buggy ride to my hotel room. The entire hotel was too spacious and wide to walk so during my entire stay, I took buggy everywhere such as to the gym, swimming pool and restaurants. I could ring for a buggy easily. Upon entering my Coral hotel room, I was shocked to find a personal butler waiting inside for me. He was extremely polite and asked if I needed his help with anything. He even offered to fill my bathtub with hot water so I can enjoy a relaxing bath. I prefer to do things on my own so I dismissed him politely. My personal butler stood outside my hotel room and said to call him if I need anything. Such excellent service!
