Here’s an update on two places that I really liked in Abu Dhabi and I totally recommend going – the Emirates Palace and Saadiyat Beach Club.
The Emirates Palace Hotel is probably the fanciest hotel you could find in whole AD area – even every single clock on the walls in the building is a Rolex ;)) There are many gatherings attended by politicians, royals and just people of interest in general. They do offer camel rides on the beach too, but I couldn’t do it because on that day there was another gathering and all outside areas were shut down. 🙁 But soon I’m heading to AD again and I plan not to return without a fashion shooting with a camel – it’s been my absolute dream forever. And yeah, a front selfie with a camel (I mean the camel, not me, because I think they look so insanely cute as if they were smiling)
So back to the hotel. It’s all fancy shmanzy, gold everywhere (what would you expect, duuuh) and glitter. So my gut was good to me and told me to wear a golden glitter dress hahaha
There are beautiful carpets, little fountains, palm trees, real flowers (smelling amazing), coffee bars (coffee with eatable gold platters on top) aaaaannnd the most beautiful…… bathrooms! All with mosaics, marble, stone and gold!
The gardens in the front are as huge as a park, I didn’t capture them as it was a) night and b) we were already kinda exhausted. (We did the beach club and spa before uuuhh)
Let’s get over to the next – beautiful Saadiyat Beach Club. It’s a perfect place to hang out with your friends, you have big cabana beds and a warm pool in front of you and you could also go over to the sea and swim there.
