A statement from the Emirates Palace hotel said it regretted "attempts to overload" the Christmas tree tradition by adorning it with premium bling including gold, rubies, diamonds and other precious stones from a hotel jeweller. But the hotel management apparently had second thoughts after questions arose about whether the opulent tree was innocent good cheer or unfortunate bad taste. The hotel regrets "attempts to overload the tradition followed by most hotels in the country with meanings and connotations that do not fall in line with the [hotel's] professional standards", said a statement carried on the state-run news agency WAM. The hotel tried to distance itself from the 43ft 13m faux fir in one of its rotundas, saying a hotel-based jeweller was responsible for creating and decorating the tree. The hotel also claimed the tree was not a stunt, but rather an effort to boost the holiday mood for its guests, based on the United Arab Emirates' "values of openness and tolerance". Although officially Muslim, the UAE features many signs of Christmas for its huge foreign population. Lights, carollers and santas are fixtures in nearly every mall.

Christmas came in extravagant fashion to the Muslim desert emirate of Abu Dhabi as a glitzy hotel unveiled a bejewelled Christmas tree valued at more than 11 million dollars on Wednesday. The metre foot faux evergreen, located in the gold leaf-bedecked rotunda of the hotel, is decorated with silver and gold bows, ball-shaped ornaments and small white lights. It holds a total of diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones, said Khalifa Khouri, owner of Style Gallery, which provided the jewellery. Asked if the tree might offend religious sensibilities in the United Arab Emirates, where the vast majority of the local population is Muslim, Olbertz said he did not think it would. Like other hotels in the United Arab Emirates, it has had a Christmas tree up in previous years. The tree is not the first extravagant offering from Emirates Palace — a massive, dome-topped hotel sitting amid fountains and carefully manicured lawns. The hotel, which bills itself as seven-star, in February introduced a package for a seven-day stay priced at one million dollars.
Dubbed one of the 'most expensive Christmas trees ever', the glitzy Emirates Palace hotel has unveiled the 40ft evergreen in its gold-leaf bedecked atrium. Decorated with traditional silver and gold bows, baubles and white lights, the tree is also decked out in necklaces, earrings and other jewellery giving it its record value. It holds a total of diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones according to Khalifa Khouri, owner of Style Gallery which provided the jewellery. He added that the hotel would apply to the Guinness Book of World Records to find out if its tree is the most expensive ever. Asked if the tree might offend religious sensibilities in the United Arab Emirates, where the vast majority of the population is Muslim, Mr Olbertz said: 'It's a very liberal country.
