Love was in the air at our Fairmont Bab Al Bahr Valentine's preview
Say it with ‘wow’…
On Wednesday, January 27 we invited a select group of couples to take a very special Valentine’s adventure with us.
It was an advance preview of Abu Dhabi’s Fairmont Bab Al Bahr’s completely unique Valentine’s dine-around experience that is borderline guaranteed to score big date night points.
The six-destination multi-stop gastronomic tour our guests around the culinary world (and the hotel), with sophisticated welcome drinks in the Lobby Lounge; appetisers at Café Sushi; grape degustation at Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill; soup and main courses at Marco’s New York Italian; dessert at Pier or Beach Side; and then off to Bridges Bar for a few nightcaps.
As you can see from the pictures it was a truly memorable occasion, packed with sophisticated touches and conducted with exceptional service. We’d like to extend our most sincere gratitude to our couples and our hosts at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr.
If you’d like to book it for you and your boo, the total price for this package is Dhs1,500 per couple (quick bit of elementary arithmetic, that’s Dhs750 per person) and it takes place of course on Sunday February 14.
If you’re in the mood for something with less journeying and a more wallet-friendly price tag. Fairmont’s got you. Each of the venues mentioned above are putting on their own ode to amour.
