Time Out Says

This is a top spot for visitors thanks to the stunning views of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. If you have guests then there’s nothing more impressive than a full afternoon tea, except for when it’s paired with a view of one of the most iconic buildings in the world, of course.

In winter take a seat on the terrace and soak up the Dubai sunshine and those super views – you’re guaranteed to have a corker for the family album once your parents have spent the first half hour taking snaps, too.

Inside is just as charming though, with large, comfy sofas and chairs in the traditional Arabic-style lobby lounge of one of the city’s most impressive hotels (the army of golden horses on the driveway is just the welcoming party).

Indulge in a traditional English tea in this elegant lounge and sample classics such as Victoria sponge, English fruit cake, tea cakes, sandwiches and scones.

And there’s plenty of it – there’s no chance you’ll be going hungry with this one. Much like the famed hotel’s massive Friday brunch, this offering has quality and quantity – so come hungry.

Sandwiches, hot pastries, scones, cakes – everything you could want is on the menu and all is delicious.

A perfect afternoon out and Time Out Dubai's Best Afternoon Tea 2020.
Dhs235 per person (Arabesque Afternoon Tea), Dhs335 including a glass of bubbly (Royal Afternoon Tea). Daily 2pm-6pm.
