Mind-Blowing! Abu Dhabi Introduces Epic ‘5-Star Plus’ Hotel Experience

Abu Dhabi has introduced a new hospitality category, the “5-star plus” hotel, to recognize accommodations that surpass the luxury of traditional five-star properties. Leading the pack is Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental, Abu Dhabi, formerly known as Emirates Palace. This iconic hotel, now part of the Mandarin Oriental group, boasts 394 rooms, including three palace suites, as well as upscale restaurants and 114 meticulously crafted gold domes. The hotel’s opulence aligns with the criteria for the 5-star plus classification, which includes features like two presidential suites, a high staff-to-guest ratio, and a helipad located at least five kilometers away from the property.

The Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi explains that a 5-star plus hotel provides an experience that goes beyond expectations, delivering ultra-luxurious infrastructure, impeccable standards, and personalized, anticipatory service. While other renowned luxury hotels in Abu Dhabi, such as the Ritz Carlton, St. Regis, Rosewood, and Shangri-La, offer opulent stays, none have yet received the 5-star plus ranking. However, with Abu Dhabi’s goal to attract over 24 million visitors by the end of 2023 and its track record of hosting high-profile events like the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and UFC matches, it is likely that more properties will strive for and achieve this prestigious classification.

As Abu Dhabi continues to welcome a growing number of visitors, the spotlight is on which luxury hotel will be next to join the 5-star plus club. This designation will likely drive hotels to redesign their spaces and introduce new amenities to meet the criteria. With the city’s ambition and the influx of tourists for various events and concerts, it seems that the answers to these questions will be revealed in the near future, further cementing Abu Dhabi’s reputation as a top destination for unparalleled luxury and hospitality.
