Making the right impression is important, but making a lasting one is invaluable to our brides and grooms.
At Palace Downtown, we have 4 distinctive outdoor and indoor venues with spectacular city views for extraordinary wedding ceremonies and receptions, whether intimate or elaborate.
The Viewing Deck – Unmatched by any other venue in the city, The Viewing Deck offers awe-inspiring vistas of Burj Khalifa and panoramic sights of The Dubai Fountain and Downtown Dubai. The 802 m2 open-air venue generously hosts 200 guests for a reception and up to 120 for a sit-down dinner. The gazebo facing Burj Khalifa is an intimate space for an exchange of vows, and for larger weddings, the entire venue beautifully accommodates a cocktail reception, preceding celebrations at one of our other venues.
The Pool Area – Beautiful, tranquil and exceptionally positioned to take in the marvelous sights of Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain, The Pool Area is a versatile open-air venue for weddings. Themed cabanas, manicured hedges and a symmetry of palm trees add to the enchantment amidst the Palace Gardens for a picture perfect setting. The venue comfortably accommodates up to 500 guests for a reception and up to 350 for a banquet.
Palace Gardens – The serene Palace Gardens, poised at the edge of Burj Lake and overlooking Burj Khalifa, lend a special ambiance to weddings. Effortlessly hosting up to 150 guests for gala dinners and up to 250 for cocktail receptions, the venue presents two unique areas; one at the lakeside and the other perfectly positioned by The Dubai Fountain. If considered exclusively for the wedding ceremony, Palace Gardens beautifully set the tone for the reception to follow.
Royale Ballroom - A statement of the utmost elegance, the beautifully appointed Royale Ballroom is a truly opulent setting. The 320 m2 ballroom is the venue of choice for receptions of up to 300 guests. The venue is versatile as it can be divided into two separate areas, and features a spacious pre-function area as well as an outdoor balcony overlooking The Old Town. In addition, the Royale Ballroom is perfectly suited to dramatic entrances by the wedding couple – in a classic car, on horseback, or in a chariot thanks to convenient vehicle access to the ballroom through the doors situated near the hotel entrance.
