The luxurious Emirates Palace will become a Mandarin Oriental in 2020
Emirates Palace is better known as Abu Dhabi's most luxurious address. Soon, it will open up as the Mandarin Oriental Emirates Palace hotel.
The luxury five-star hotel, which is currently operated by Kempinski, will undergo a two-year renovation, which will include upgrading guestrooms and leisure facilities, as well as introducing new restaurants and bars.
The hotel will be rebranded as a Mandarin Oriental property, following a phased renovation over two years, during which time the hotel will remain open. The work will encompass significant upgrades to guestrooms and recreational amenities, as well as new food and beverage facilities.
Emirates Palace opened in 2005. It currently has just under 394 guestrooms and suites, 12 bars and restaurants, 40 meeting rooms, an auditorium and a ballroom, which played host to the 2018 Dream Ball last year.
