And it looks like it’s going to be a permanent setup

Fans of chilled beach vibes, Asian-Mediterranean fusion cuisine and drinks with umbrellas in them rejoice. Popular international lounge brand Buddha-Bar is bringing its Buddha-Bar Beach concept to the UAE.

Expected to open later this year at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, the day-to-night destination will be the fourth of its kind in the world focusing on taking the trappings of the traditionally urban brand al fresco.

Typically the event is held seasonally, with venues having appeared this summer in Baku and on both Greek islands of Santorini and Mykonos, however the new St. Regis venue will be the first to find a permanent home letting partygoers experience the good vibes all year round.

Here’s a peek at how thing were looking at the sister venue in Mykonos earlier this week:

Nice, no? So, what can we expect? Well, Marwan Fadel, Hotel Manager of The St. Regis says that “The exotic new concept will go beyond expectations, offering signature sounds and fabulous food in a stunning setting with world-class beach and pool facilities.” Sounds pretty on point to us.

While a firm opening date has yet to be announced, we’re expecting it to open its doors just in time for the cooler months to start rolling in. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we hear more.
