Celebrate in some of the city’s most contemporary surrounds with a festive stay at Armani Hotel Dubai. Not only does it have a jaw-dropping location within Burj Khalifa, but its refined corridors unveil all manner of lavish events. A hotel with an eye for exquisite cuisine, you can feast on a six-course Christmas Day lunch at Armani/Ristorante, an East-meets-West seven-course New Year’s Eve set menu at Armani/Hashi or a beautiful festive afternoon tea in the lounge, with a dolci display, scones and Queen Elizabeth II’s afternoon tea sandwich of choice made with jam from the Balmoral Castle gardens.
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER
As lavish and elegant as hotels in Dubai come, a festive celebration at Raffles The Palm Dubai will be nothing short of refined with a rather stately seal of approval. Head to Le Jardin for a beautiful festive buffet, serving everything from crispy roast potatoes and turkey with all the trimmings to loads of different international dishes, all set in a gorgeous alfresco location with the garden’s flowers creating the most beautiful backdrop. For New Year’s Eve, there’s a big live band, The Fanatics and DJ performance to take you from one year into the next with the most exclusive of events. Celebrate either inside or out, and make the most of Raffles The Palm Dubai’s extravagant setting.
