Emirates Palace is planning to host an international Polo tournament in November. This initiative is part of the effort to become one of the most important hallmarks of tourism in the country, said its new general manager.
Holger Schroth said the hotel on the western seaside of Abu Dhabi city also has plans to organize a unique celebration on the 42nd anniversary of the UAE national day.
“The hotel will organize the second polo championship in November and it welcomes all those who love the game from Abu Dhabi and the whole world,” said Schroth.
He said new food menus had been prepared at the hotel’s restaurants including Mezlai, Le Vendome, Sayyad, BBQ Al Qasr, Mezzaluna, Cascades and other food and beverage outlets.
Elaborating on the hotel’s clients, Schroth said the GCC, China and Russia have been the main markets for Emirates Palace. Emirates Palace is also closely cooperating with the Authority and that the two have what he described as a strategic partnership. He said the Authority is playing a substantial role in promoting Abu Dhabi in other markets through its offices in Europe and other areas.
