We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Palace soon. Sincerely, Martin Cramer General Manager. As soon as one step inside this hotel, one will experience this grandness that is just not seen anywhere else.
We had lunch in the lobby after our visit at Grand Mosque. The lunch was simply lovely and we enjoyed the ambience around with a pianist.
For Trump, opulence, golf and nuclear threat
We like the service immensely. A visit to Abu Dhabi is not complete without a visit here. We stayed for two nights in a diamond room facing the ocean on a stop-over in Abu Dhabi. The room was spacious, the mattress very comfy and the air-con one of the quietest so far. Airport transfer went smoothly, too. The breakfast buffet at Le Vendome was superb which was to be expected from a Kempinski run hotel: The only two things I can complain about are: Service is sometimes a bit over the top as we prefer privacy plus the hotel is huge and therefore not very private. Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your kind feedback on your stay with us.
We value the feedback of our guests in a continuous effort to provide the best service and hospitality in Abu Dhabi. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Palace soon. I visited this hotel during a cruise in the Arab Emirates. It is a special place very elegant and luxury. The hall, the bars, the beach were absolutely wonderful!
And the personnel very kind. The view of the Government Palace and of Abu Dhabi skyline unforgettable!!! We were lucky enough to be offered an upgrade on arrival and we were given a Royal Khaleej Suite, but this was not a free upgrade.
Inequality, poverty and the flaunting opulence of the ‘newly-rich’ – Stabroek News
We were able to wait in the Lounge until our room was ready as we arrived quite early in the morning. The room was lovely but a little too big for the four or us, the children slept on extra beds in the huge living room so they had their own space. The breakfast buffet was extensive, there are options for gluten-free and vegetarian although there are a lot of nuts in the food so I'm not sure how well people with allergies are catered for. The pool in the west wing area is the one with the slides and lazy river. It was beautifully clean and the pool has attendants to bring towels and drinks and life guards are on duty all of the time.
The beach was also immaculate and the roped-off areas for swimming are big enough for a quick waveless dip. Housekeeping was done very quickly and thoroughly and the hotel looks as though it is being cleaned constantly.
The public areas are busy with people coming in for afternoon tea or to look around but its such a vast space you don't feel it is that busy. It does take a long time to walk from place to place as it is a massive hotel so I'm not sure how people with limited mobility get around. The restaurants are good, although some better than others. The fish restaurant, in particular, was quite poor in that the service was slow and it lacked atmosphere. The Italian was lovely though.
THE TRUTH BEHIND THE TRUTH OF
We enjoyed our trip but I would agree with some reviewers here that we didn't feel we received amazing service; we weren't 'unpacked' as some people have mentioned here and we never met a butler so I'm not sure if there was one linked to our room. However, all of the staff was unfailingly courteous and polite and everyone always stopped to smile and say hello. The use of the lounge was great as it provided snacks and drinks before and after dinner and as the price of the wine was so high in the restaurants we made good use of the complimentary drinks there every night.

Thus to the poor struggling masses, the perception of an inexorable rise in the flaunting opulence of the newly-rich amongst us leads not only to resentment, but also to feelings of societal marginalization and exclusion. How we may ask can it be otherwise, given the smallness of the country and its communities and the burgeoning rise of palatial residences and other ostentatious displays?
Politics, economics, culture, ethnicity and ideology all contribute towards these depressing outcomes. This therefore makes 1 a focus on the gap between the poor and rich or the depth of poverty, and 2 establishing the severity of poverty in Guyana essential to my exploration of the theme inequality and poverty in Guyana.
To cater for this circumstance, economists have introduced what is known as a poverty gap PG index. As the term implies this index measures the gap or depth of poverty as indicated in the survey. The index accompanies all reported results for survey-based measures of poverty, including in this instance those conducted for Guyana. Although the PG is useful in this regard policy-makers still need to be able to measure the severity of poverty. I turn to this next.
