Lonely Planet review

You don’t have to check in to check out this over-the-top glam hotel. It was built at the cost of a cool Dh11 billion, which explains the mindboggling use of marble, gold and crystal (1002 Swarovski chandeliers!) throughout as well as the ATM that dispenses solid gold bars. With nearly 400 rooms and suites, 114 domes and a 1.3km private beach it is as intriguingly colossal as it is swish.

Enjoy classic English afternoon tea (Dh225) or, at the very least, have a good wander around the lobby, perhaps ogling ancient art from China, Egypt, Africa, Greece and Rome on display at the world-renowned Barakat Gallery . Also stop by the Saadiyat Island Cultural District Exhibition , which provides an overview of the museum cluster taking shape off the shore of Abu Dhabi.
