One&Only Royal Mirage

Highly Commended Best Afternoon Tea Comments

© ITP Images

Setting: Located in the traditional-style Arabian Court, the ambience in Samovar Lounge is one of hushed elegance – all velvet drapes and sumptuous sofas. There’s also a terrace that overlooks the hotel gardens and out towards the Gulf, perfect for
when the weather is cooler.

Presentation: Portions are generous, and presentation is great: the fancy-looking open sandwiches and traditional finger options certainly look as good as they taste.

Food: Sandwiches are large and generously filled, the scones are light and fluffy and the chewy almond tuiles are a particular highlight. They’ll sometimes give you an extra cream cake if you ask nicely.

Tea: Made fresh from leaf, the tea menu is large, with plenty to suit all tastes.

Service: Sometimes slow, but always polite and unobtrusive.

Dhs95 per person. Daily 3pm-6pm. Arabian Court, One&Only Royal Mirage, royalmirage.oneandonlyresorts.com (04 399 9999).
