This hotel has just launched a healthy brunch

Guests can choose from laughter yoga, Pilates and relaxation sessions

Brunch comes in all shapes and forms in Dubai, and now The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel is adding something a little healthier to that list.

Every Saturday, The Vibe restaurant in the wellbeing resort will be offering its Detox Brunch, for brunch-lovers to feast on healthy grub and even get a workout as well.

After you've dined on healthy dishes, guests can get their stretch on at the various fitness classes at the Wellness Lounge, including laughter yoga, Pilates, fitness exercises and relaxation sessions. And it's all included in the price.

From 12.30pm until 4pm, the brunch caters for most dietary requirements, with vegan and paleo dishes, too. The buffet will boast nutrition-rich salads, Arabic mezze, healthy tapas and much more.

Those with a paleo diet will be treated to the “home curing factory” section, with several kinds of meat and fish, while pescatarians can take on surcharge sea surf station featuring crab, mussels, fine de Claire oysters and a wide variety of sushi.

Vegans can look forward to a “vegan rainbow burger cart”, serving up options such as lentil or quinoa sweet potato patties and activated charcoal buns, with nutty avocado spread.

As for desserts, expect homemade ice cream and raw fruit-based desserts, along with fresh smoothies and cold pressed juices.

The brunch is priced at Dhs299, but guests can get access to the resort’s infinity pool after the brunch for Dhs349, with views of Dubai’s skyline as your backdrop.

There’s even a pop-up market by the pool, so shoppers can check out all those holiday essentials including organic and natural products, vegan skin care, homemade soaps, organic cosmetics and more.

Looking for more vegan brunches? Tr!beca Kitchen & Bar now has a vegan brunch menu that includes starters, burgers and desserts.

Healthy body and mind, here we come.
