This chic Italian beach club is opening on the Palm this winter
LAVITA will be a glamorous new addition to Dubai’s popular beach club scene…
Bringing a touch of la dolce vita to Dubai, chic Italian beach house LAVITA is set to open its doors this winter inside the ultra-luxe Dorchester residences on Palm Jumeirah – One at Palm Jumeirah by the Dorchester Collection.
Fusing Italian coastal allure with Dubai’s dynamic luxury scene, LAVITA boasts breathtaking views over the Dubai Marina and Arabian Gulf and will have a huge focus on music and entertainment, featuring a wow-worthy lineup of performers, international acts, and brand collaborations.
Masterminded by hospitality experts Mine & Yours Group, the team behind Chic Nonna, LAVITA will also have two restaurant concepts: the Italian called LAVITA and a Japanese concept called Shima.
And, just when you thought it couldn’t get any more Dubai… guests can arrive by boat and be welcomed in style onto the bespoke Jetty Lounge, where they can unwind in plush seating with unparalleled personalised service.
“Lavita is set to be a hub and epicentre of curated music and entertainment as it brings a diverse array of performers and international acts to its vibrant coastal locale, elevating the Italian Dolce Vita and providing guests with a one-of-a-kind experience,” says Piero Giglio, Managing Director of Mine & Yours Group. “We also plan on collaborating with prestigious brands and personalities to add an exclusive touch to the beach club,” he adds.
The classic Italian menu, conjured up by chef Giuseppe Pezzella, will celebrate the rich flavours and heritage of Italy, serving typical beachside dishes from fresh seafood feasts to artisanal pasta creations. “One of the must-try dishes that encapsulates the essence of the restaurant and that will please all palates is the Calamarata pasta flambé, with the final touches made at the guest’s table, which includes mixed seafood directly imported from Italy, fresh squid with Amalfi lemon and crispy bottarga with umami,” Piero tells What’s On.
While Shima, helmed by chef Koyi Tanabe, will showcase the vibrant flavours of Japanese fare with an innovative selection of sushi, sashimi, ceviche, and more. “At Shima, each dish is a culinary masterpiece, embodying the Japanese philosophy of integrating natural seasonal flavors and traditional ingredients with worldwide culinary techniques,” says Piero. “Signature plates include the Chutoro Sogigiri, from the sushi bar featuring chutoro slices, scallops, mizuna leaves, olive oil, spicy soybean paste, and orange supreme; as well as the hamachi nigiri with mentaiko sauce, garlic confit, and yuzu.”
“Beyond exceptional dining, you can anticipate a warm and inviting atmosphere, attentive service, and a dedication to creating lasting memories including exclusive amenities and services for guests to enjoy,” Piero concludes.
While we don’t yet have an exact opening date, we’ll be the first to let you know when to pack those beach bags.
In the meantime, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to luxurious beach clubs and pool days in Dubai. For those who can’t wait to get those tans topped up, we have just the thing: Atlantis The Royal’s ultra-exclusive rooftop pool, Cloud 22, opens up to the public next week for the first time since opening in February 2023.
