An Abu Dhabi luxury hotel that boasted an $11m / £7m Christmas tree decorated with gold and gems has admitted it may have taken the holiday spirit a bit too far.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.The tree was unveiled last week with full fanfare in a hotel that features its own gold bar vending machine and a one-week $1m package that includes private jet jaunts around the Middle East.
