As one of the most expensive hotels ever built, the Emirates Palace is a national landmark. It has its own beach, a private marina and 85 hectares of neatly-preened gardens wrapped all the way around it. A wide, palm tree-lined avenue leads you through its huge arched entrance and into the extravagant, gold-tinted atrium. Afternoon tea is served in the lounge. It includes a selection sandwiches, cakes, and desserts, along with your choice of a pot of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Make sure you comply with the dress code – both ladies and gentlemen should avoid revealing clothing and keep their legs covered up.
