See you by the pool…

Le Meridien Mina Seyahi’s new poolside brunch in Dubai combines three of our favourite things: seafood barbecues, free-flowing sips, and infinity pool dips. The Aqua Poolside Seafood Barbecue kicks off this Thursday and Friday night, offering an relaxed evening brunch with pool access.

For Dhs299 per person, you’ll get an all-you-can-eat seafood barbecue, unlimited drinks, and access to the Horizon infinity pool. The new evening brunch will take place every Thursday and Friday, from 7pm to 10pm.
