Daily Pampering: Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace installs gold vending machine

The Emirates Palace hotel is used to discerning travelers. Often visited by foreign dignitaries and rulers of the UAE federation’s seven emirates (each of whom has his own suite), the Emirates Palace hotel knows how to cater to even the most discerning guests. The hotel’s newest amenity – a vending machine that dispenses gold – simply tops the list of extravagant hotel offerings.

The shiny new gold-plated machine in the hotel lobby allows guests to splurge (quite literally) on the precious metal. You can buy your gold from the vending machine in one-gram, five-gram and 10-gram bars, or just bring home gold coins. The gold-plated vending machine automatically updates the price of gold on a daily basis.
