Reflecting its high-end offering, pool days at Tapasake will set you back Dhs1,000, with Dhs400 redeemable on poolside dining. Open for pool days from 10am, enjoy sun-soaked days dipping between the pool – complete with swim-up bar – and plush loungers surrounded by verdant plans. Or, for a VIP day out, book one of the ultra-luxe private cabanas, complete with your own indoor relaxation area.

From its unique vantage point at Za’abeel, the infinity pool boasts some of the most incredible city vistas, with the skyscraping Downtown Dubai in full view from the stretching swimming pool.

Adding to the glorious, sun-drenched vibe, guests can expect entertaining beats from a rotation of resident DJs, graze on a menu of poolside Nikkei flavours, and enjoy master mixology with refreshing cocktails served from the bar.

As well as the pool experience, Tapasake also houses an indoor-outdoor restaurant, where guests can enjoy an extensive menu of signature Japanese and Peruvian dishes. In a setting that’s sleek and contemporary, the Tapasake restaurant opens for lunch from 12pm to 4pm and dinner from 6pm to 11pm.

The menu features an array of grazing plates such as sushi and sashimi, crisp tempura, and marinated fish and meats cooked over hot coals, so come hungry.
