Arriving at the lobby lounge of Conrad Dubai, there is a strong scent of cinnamon, which gives the hotel a warm and cosy feeling. You’ll be welcomed by friendly staff, who will lead you to one of the lush sofas in the middle of the hotel lobby and reception area. While the venue isn’t exactly intimate for hosting afternoon tea, the open plan space allows for a vibrant atmosphere. The menu is designed to share and features an array of exquisite blends of tea by TWG, served in regal fine china. A small yet filling tiered tray features classic finger sandwiches as well as fresh strawberries, scones and a variety of sweet treats such as chocolate marquise and macaroons.
The tea is well presented and staff are happy to bring more of your favourites. Overall, this is a relaxing and delightful setting with professional service and a well-executed menu.
