Emirates Palace, Managed by Kempinski Hoteliers since 1897, landed a top spot in the world’s 100 best luxury hotels, according to the Robb Report, the luxury lifestyle authority. The recent international citation comes on the heels of the Palace’s triumphs at the World Travel Market, and a special commendation from Seven Stars and Stripes, another luxury lifestyle specialist.
Robb Report’s Luxury Hotels list is the essential source for city travellers for whom price is no object. The magazine offers first-hand accounts of exclusive properties from around the world, all meeting or exceeding the highest standards for service, setting, architecture and amenities. Emirates Palace was chosen as the best in Abu Dhabi, and one of the 100 best in the world.
“The publication of Robb Report Luxury Hotels culminates a yearlong effort by its editorial staff members, who identified the best properties in each of nearly 100 cities worldwide,” explained Noel Massoud, General Manager, Emirates Palace. “It’s definitely an honour to be a part of the list. Combined with our two other recent international award, this citation from Robb Report affirms how spectacular the Palace is.”
Spanning 42 countries on six continents, the collection of exclusive properties showcased in Robb Report Luxury Hotels ranges from historic grand dames in Europe to contemporary boutiques in Asia. But each hotel shares at least one common trait: the ability to convey the absolute best of its respective city.
In selecting only one property for a given city, the editorial staff focused on determining which property represented the ultimate address for the luxury traveller. “Our objective is to simplify the selection process for the Robb Report reader who is travelling to a city and wants to stay in the absolute best hotel,” said Bruce Wallin, Editor, Robb Report.
Publication of Robb Report Luxury Hotels comes only four months after the launch of Robb Report Luxury Resorts, an annual issue that offered first-hand accounts of the world’s 100 most exclusive destination resorts. Robb Report is the international authority on the luxury lifestyle. Each month, the magazine reports on issues and trends affecting the affluent market, with coverage of exclusive events and features on exceptional automobiles, motorcycles, aircraft, art, jewellery, watches, fashion, travel, homes, wines, spirits, and cigars.
