Sponsored: Day or night, this Dubai Marina hotel has your brunching needs covered… 

It’s almost the weekend which means one thing: it’s time for a leisurely weekend brunch to see in the new season in Dubai. Each with their own vibe, Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel is hosting two Saturday brunches: Sky High Brunch and Brunch Nation.

Located on the 52nd floor with panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina, Sky High Brunch is a lively airplane-themed spectacle offering guests an enticing four-course sharing menu. For Dhs499 per person, enjoy unlimited house beverages and cocktails for three hours. The food? For starters, the menu features a charcuterie board with cured meats, and cheese, as well as pesto ricotta and tomato salad, or Beluga lentil and beetroot salad. Follow with Japanese bites like pulled beef bao, dim sum, and sushi rolls.

The pièce de résistance? The pork platter and mixed grill for main course served with potato gratin, pumpkin ravioli, and veggies. For dessert indulge in dulce de leche cheesecake, coffee chocolate crokine, and pear frangipane tart. What elevates this brunch above the usual Dubai weekend haunt is the consistently lively ambiance and views (is there anything better than looking at the Palm from the sky?).

In the mood for comfort food this weekend? Downstairs at The Croft, Brunch Nation’s evening brunch offers a range of quality British pub grub favourites including fish and chips, roast lamb, and butter chicken. For Dhs399 per person, guests can enjoy three hours of unlimited house beverages on its beautiful outdoor terrace overlooking the boats on the marina or sat opposite the restaurant’s rustic open kitchen.
