Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
Nominated for Best Afternoon Tea 1 Comments
Setting: Sultan’s Lounge turns out to be another phrase for ‘hotel lobby’, though it would be churlish to complain – the Zabeel Saray’s lobby is more opulent than most suites. Take a turquoise and gold throne by the window, or head out onto the terrace in cooler weather.
Presentation: Food is served on a three-tier tray adorned with savouries, sweet treats, scones and cake.
Food: The sandwiches are freshly made and the scones are served warm, but the clotted cream is a touch too dry.
Tea: It offers 16 varieties of tea.
Service: The staff sometimes take their time to deliver the tea, but are otherwise very accommodating.
