Fine Dining Experience at
Royal Desert Retreat
Escape the city lights and immerse yourself in this exclusive fine-dining experience nestled in a serene desert oasis, in the heart of a private retreat of one of Dubai’s Royal family. Enjoy dining in the exclusivity and privacy of your very own cabana.
Your culinary journey begins with a traditional Arabic welcoming of high quality locally sourced dates and aromatic Arabic coffee. Make your way up the pristine sand dunes to admire a spectacular sunset, capture stunning photos of the flawless desert all while savouring delicious canapés and sipping refreshing sparkling juice.
Surrounded by rolling sand dunes and gently-lit by candles and flame torches, your private cabana awaits. Here a fine dining journey continues. The fusion menu was meticulously crafted by a team of professional European and Middle Eastern chefs. You will be spoilt for choice with dishes like Japanese inspired beef tataki, roasted duck breast on a chickpea puree, grilled Norwegian salmon fillet with tiger prawns, and succulent Australian beef fillet. You will be amazed how dishes of this calibre are freshly prepared onsite in the middle of the desert.
As the night winds down, make your way to a welcoming lounge area where you can enjoy delicious desserts such as freshly prepared apple pie, tiramisu or panna cotta drizzled with fresh berries. If you wish, sample some of our aromatic shisha and complete your perfect night with the mesmerizing Flaming Sands of Arabia fire show.
Nowhere else in Dubai you can enjoy the unique feeling of dining under the stars while relaxing in the tranquillity of your very own private cabana as you soak up the magic of the Dubai desert at night.
