Sponsored: Make the most of the perfect Dubai weather… 

Riva Beach Club located on Palm Jumeirah has a lot in store for the festive season. As the weather cools in Dubai, it becomes prime beach season and, unless you’re heading home for some snow, we’ve got just the place to make 2022 your merriest holiday season yet…

What Dubai lacks in way of snow, it sure makes up for in beachside dining and stunning vistas. This chic beach club has a pristine pool and panoramic views of the iconic Burj al Arab and Dubai skyline, making it the perfect place to unwind and create everlasting memories.

And let’s not forget about the food, the Mediterranean-inspired menu features a selection of familiar dishes with locally-sourced ingredients cooked to the highest quality. Think fresh seafood, homemade pizza, delicious desserts, plus a vegan menu.

If you’re looking for a relaxed, vibrant, and family-friendly vibe this Christmas or New Year’s, here are two offerings to fill your calendar:

Christmas Brunch

After a magical morning opening presents and watching your favourite Christmas movie, Riva is firing up the grill for a Christmas-themed brunch feast with unlimited beverages, festive tunes courtesy of the live DJ, mulled wine on-arrival, and a special appearance from Santa Claus himself.  The family brunch is suitable for all ages (and it’s pup-friendly) so gather the whole crew and get ready to dive straight into this magical poolside affair.
