One of the most luxurious locations in the UAE is Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental Abu Dhabi. Located on West Corniche Road, the five-star hotel will be home to one of the grandest Ramadan offerings in the country. Majilis by the Sea makes its return to the hotel, and here’s what to expect.
Now in its second year, Majilis by the Sea is a spectacular setting for iftars and suhoors. Located between a private beach and Qasr Al Watan, the site spans 1,100 seats indoors and outdoors. Inside Majilis by the Sea, guests can expect exceptional curated gifts from Episodes and The Spa at Mandarin Oriental. Plus, there will be a perfume bar offering exquisite scent and a collection of beautiful jewels for those passionate about fine jewellery.
The dining options range from à la carte menus for small groups and buffets for larger groups. Guests can explore the sushi station operated by a Japanese sushi chef, who will craft the freshest sushi right before their eyes. From Lebanese Terrace, there will be authentic Arabic dishes, and the buffet will be bursting with international favourites.
Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental Abu Dhabi is home to two Michelin-starred restaurants. For Majliis by the Sea, the two restaurants will showcase their signature dishes. The options include contemporary Chinese from Hakkasan Abu Dhabi and fine-dining Italian food from Talea by Antonio Guida. Plus, the MICHELIN recommended Martabaan by Hemant Oberoi shares dishes.
At Majilis by the Sea, visitors can watch the stunning sunset and enjoy the soothing sounds of Arabic instrumental music. The retail offerings will range from a perfume bar to jewellery shops. The Episodes hamper will include artisanal food and drink, which has come from Emirates Palace Mandarin Oriental Abu Dhabi’s newest dining destination.
During Ramadan, there are a range of special offers with Acqua di Parma barbers, personal trainers and hotel stays. The offer includes 20 per cent off the best available rates and 25 per cent off the second room.
Iftar will be available daily from sunset until 8:30pm and is priced at AED 345 per person with kids aged four to 11 dining for half the price. Suhoor will be offered from 10pm to 2am with a minimum spend of AED 200 per person.
