Samovar Lounge
One of three afternoon tea options at the One&Only Royal Mirage, the Samovar Lounge in the Arabian Court is plush and quiet with a distinct sense of luxury about it. Traditional afternoon tea is served on a silver platter: three tiers adorned with dainty sandwiches and pastries. There are tuna, turkey and salmon offerings of the former and delicious fruit and chocolate combinations of the latter. Service is pleasant and efficient with staff happy to replenish your platter as requested. Twenty different types of tea are on offer or coffee if that’s more to your liking, both coming with unlimited refills. Considering that all of this comes in at less than Dhs100 per person, this is good value for money.
Dhs99 per person. Served daily 3pm-6pm. One&Only Royal Mirage, Umm Suqeim (04 399 9999).
