Al fresco dining is coming back, bars are re-opening their terraces and it’s nearly time for us to make our way back into the great outdoors.
September usually indicates the start of winter, and while you’d be forgiven for thinking the best deals are reserved for summer, and largely behind us, there’s an absolutely cracking pool day offer up for grabs at Palace Downtown, which you need to know about.
For Dhs300, you’ll get access to the pool and spa all day. And there’s plenty of time to make a full day of it, with the pool open from 6am until 8pm daily from Sunday to Thursday. If you’re after a midweek dip, look no further than the Palace Gardens at Palace Downtown. Soak up views of Burj Lake, while taking a plunge in the garden’s outdoor pool. Then head into The Spa and unwind in the steam room and Jacuzzi, and follow it up with a bite to eat.
You can choose lunch at Ewaan, available between 12.30pm and 3.30pm, or the classic afternoon tea at Al Bayt, which won Best Afternoon Tea at the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards this year. It’s available from Sunday to Thursday between 2pm and 6pm.
As we get closer to the winter months and cooler times, we can’t think of many better ways to spend a day.
Dhs300. Sun-Thu 6am-8pm. Ongoing. Palace Downtown (04 428 7888).
