The UAE’s most expensive Eid hotel suites

Luxury is a word that most people associate with the UAE. But other than price-tag or brand name, what does it really mean? Taken in its truest sense, it’s “a state of great comfort or elegance”. That means scale, quality and ambience as much as retail value.

In other words, it’s about an environment. And where the UAE really lives up to the billing is in the delivery of some of the most incredible hotel rooms in the world.
