The updated landmark Abu Dhabi hotel has the region's first vegan rooms
Emirates Palace Hotel has officially rebranded as Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental, Abu Dhabi, signalling a new era as part of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group portfolio.
To commemorate the milestone, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the hotel. During the ceremony, the hotel’s version of the brand's signature fan was unveiled. Designed by Abu Dhabi-born multidisciplinary artist Ahmad Saeed Al Areef Al Dhaheri, it's inspired by the UAE’s history of pearl diving.
Commenting on the rebranding, group chief executive James Riley said: “Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental, Abu Dhabi marks a milestone for our brand and confirms our commitment to the region. The palace is a globally recognised landmark in the UAE and we're delighted to manage a property with such rich historical and cultural relevance.”
The beachfront palace boasts renovated rooms, innovative dining experiences, and brand-new spa and sports facilities.
The reimagined accommodation includes the region’s very first vegan rooms with compassionate design, sustainable bedding, plant-based in-room dining options and cruelty-free bath amenities.
Among the enhanced dining options, there is the one-Michelin-starred Talea by Antonio Guida and the all-new culinary destination Episodes, comprising a tea apothecary, a deli, a cake shop and a gelateria.
In addition, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental will offer a new range of skincare products by Tata Harper and Oto. The spa will also be home to an Acqua di Parma-branded barber service and retail products.
