Nikki Beach Dubai
The world of Nikki Beach Dubai is one of sunshine, beautiful people, and swaying palm trees. Here, the sun beds are blonde wood and pristine white upholstery, the water of the pools glimmers and reflects the bright blue of the sky above, and cocktails appear like magic. The latter you at least have to order, the rest is just there. Effortless.
This beach club is lavish, to be sure. But it’s got the substance to back it up. One of the fleet of Nikki Beaches found the world over, the Dubai outpost does the brand proud. There are luxe cabanas, a swim-up pool, and more VIP areas than you can shake a credit card at.
The aforementioned cocktails are just one feature of Nikki Beach Dubai’s menu. But they’re a popular one, with everything from classic Old Fashioneds and the much-favoured mojitos to more eclectic libations, like lavender martinis. The food menu, meanwhile, is as international as its brand. Baja fish tacos and bruschette jostle for space on the list of starters, with chicken satay, lamb pita pockets and salad niçoise making an appearance in the mains. There’s a raw bar, sushi, sashimi, caviar, mezze platters and more. The only drawback is the inevitable need to make a choice. There’s only so much you can enjoy – especially if you’ve got an eye to sashaying around the pool with the other sleek sun worshippers.
Attached to the hotel and spa of the same name, and the executive lounge, Nikki Privé, which offers views of the bustling beach club below and stunning views out over the sea, it’s not hard to see why visitors wish every day could be a Nikki Beach Dubai day.
