Beach club fans, Dubai has got something new for you. Opening at the One&Only Royal Mirage on Thursday November 23, DRIFT promises to be a luxury beach club providing the perfect retreat from city life.
Expect an infinity pool, views of the Palm and the Dubai skyline, plus the new DRIFT Restaurant and bar, serving Provençal cuisine with an emphasis on fresh, organic ingredients and mixed drinks from a menu curated by award-winning mixologist Eric Ballard.
Beachgoers have the choice of three different packages for the day, starting from a sunlounger with beach and pool access, including a beach towel, bottle of still or sparkling water, cold hand and face towels, aloe vera after-sun cream and a seasonal fruit platter. From Sunday to Thursday, this will set you back Dhs250 per person, and Dhs300 per person on Fridays and Saturdays.
Alternatively, go for a double bed by the lawn, which includes all of the above, plus a bottle of house white or red grape beverage. That will set you back Dhs1,000 for two people (and Dhs200 per person for an additional two people).
If you really want to push the boat out, the Island by the Pool & DRIFT Bed package starts at Dhs1,500 for two people, including a bottle of premium French bubbly (Dhs200 per person for an additional two people). There are also VIP and VVIP DRIFT Beds, priced at Dhs1,500 for two people (Dhs200 per person additional person, up to a maximum of six guests), and Dhs3,000 for two people (Dhs200 per person additional person, up to a maximum of six guests) respectively.
Antonio Gonzalez, CEO of Sunset Hospitality said: “The arrival of DRIFT to Dubai’s beach club scene signals a new wave of understated yet sophisticated living in the city. We are indeed delighted to be associated with the management of this exceptional new destination which will be unlike any other beach facilities in Dubai with its idyllic location offering guests a stylish retreat from the hustle and bustle of exciting Dubai”.
