Sponsored: Why Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island is more than just a great stay…

At just an hour away from the centre of Dubai, Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island, sitting on a castaway isle of Ras Al Khaimah, is the perfect escape from the frantic pace of city living. And whilst the resort is packed with incredible amenities (such as the over-water adventure park) to help make any stay, absolutely world class – the range and depth of its culinary and nightlife offerings make it perfect for the fun-seeking day tripper too. These are just some of our favourite activities available right now.

Boons Brunch

The indulgent Saturday brunch at Boons is back. From 1pm to 4pm the handsome brasserie and bar, serves up a full foodie feast fit for all the family with soft packages at just Dhs225 and a house option for Dhs325. The fun doesn’t have to end there. Teens aged 11-19 are given complimentary access to the resort’s Xscape Teen Zone with arcades, pinball and PlayStations and there’s also free entry to the stunning outdoor pool complex and beach, so you can truly make the most of the UAE’s best season.

Neo Sky Bar: Where Nights Come Alive

When it comes to wow venues, Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island is unusually blessed, but if we had to pick one with that extra jaw-drop factor, it would be the rooftop, Neo Sky Bar. Open until late, it offers mesmeric views of the surrounding deep azure hues, comes with some stand-out craft mixology, a strong selection of shisha and some particularly delectable bar bites.

Ula Afternoon High Tea: A Taste of the Mediterranean

Ula is also a strong contender, amongst stiff competition, for ‘fairest of them all’ on Al Marjan Island. This Dubai import with its own pool, swing-seat bar and easy-on-the-eyes Mediterranean boho aesthetic makes for a memorable stage for day and night revelling in laidback luxury. And right now their afternoon tea deal, really should be on your to-do list. Available daily at Dhs175 per couple, you can take your sophisticated set piece alfresco, under the shade of parasols and gently swaying palms. Included in the high-tea spread, you’ll find savoury sandwiches, vanilla eclairs, lemon tarts, chocolate caramel cups, luxury teas, speciality coffees and so much more.
