Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental, Abu Dhabi rebrand revealed

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 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.
