On a 1.3km private beach within a stunning natural bay, Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace with its opulent Arabian interiors welcomes all the family with water sports, an adventure pool with water flumes, a kids' club, spacious suites with 24-hour butler service, and a beach club with outdoor dining by the sea.

Situated in vast gardens with lush lawns, this is a place to both kick back, relax and rejuvenate (perhaps in the sleek spa) and to keep up your fitness, whether it be in yoga classes, by running or cycling on the gorgeous outdoor trails, on the tennis courts or in countless other ways.
