World's Most Expensive Christmas Tree In Abu Dhabi

A Christmas tree that costs $11 million and is thought to be the most luxurious ever decorated has been unveiled at Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace Hotel.

But, after putting up the tree, the hotel has expressed regrets for having boasted of the $11 million tree and called it an “overload” in holiday spirit, the local media reported.

The hotel’s general manager, Hans Olbertz, was quoted as saying the 13-metre faux fir has 131 ornaments that comprise gold and precious stones such as diamonds and sapphires, necklaces, watches and bracelets with more than 180 diamonds, pearls, emeralds, and other precious stone.

The hotel claimed the tree was not a spectacular act, but rather an effort to boost the holiday mood for its guests based on the United Arab Emirates’ “values of openness and tolerance.”
