The award-winning Emirates Palace has once again been recognised as one of the world's best hotels as it was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by leading consumer recommendation body TripAdvisor®.
Emirates Palace, the iconic five-star hotel in the heart of Abu Dhabi, is recognised for its consistently outstanding reviews and, in particular, its sumptuous suites, world-class service, breathtaking surrounds and stunning design.

The ultimate destination hotel for private, family and business getaways, Emirates Palace’s sublime offering continues to receive outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor® - maintaining an impressive overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five.
“TripAdvisor® is pleased to honour exceptional businesses for consistent excellence, as reviewed by travellers on the site,” said Christine Petersen, president of TripAdvisor® for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives highly rated establishments around the world the recognition they deserve.”
Emirates Palace General Manager Bugra Berberoglu comments: “Emirates Palace strives to set new standards of excellence for both service and facilities and is delighted to have once again received the international acclaim it deserves.
