Sponsored: Give 2022 a right regal send off…
Given what’s gone on in several recent years, we cannot state strongly enough that it’s important we all start 2023 off on the best possible foot, to be thankful for our blessings and celebrate life to the absolute fullest. That’s our resolution and we’re sticking to it.
But where to stage this confident stride into the new year? We’ve checked the ‘living our best life’ GPS and it seems to suggest that one of the Abu Dhabi epicentres of sophisticated Auld Lang Syne-ing, romantic reveling, grand gala banqueting, firework spectating and New Year vibe tribing — is, unsurprisingly, Emirates Palace.
Home to a sparkling pair of Michelin Stars, dazzling chateaux glamour and surrounds of uncontrived luxury — the Palace always delivers on its royal promise. And of course the extravagance is dialled up yet further for the New Year’s Eve celebrations. These are just some of our favourite Emirates Palace ways to give 2022 a right regal send off…
