If brunch was an Olympic sport, the UAE would unquestionably win the gold, rally, and then go celebrate at another brunch somewhere across town. Whether you’re looking for a lazy lunch situation, an endless mimosa-filled party, or just a really good deal on some food and drinks from noon on the weekend, check out these 3 highlights from Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts…

There’s a glitter make-up artist on hand to add a touch of sparkle, and photobooth for snapping those memorable brunch pics. A supervised children’s area in the restaurant is available for all brunch goers, so mums can enjoy a child-free afternoon without a worry. Best of all, ladies receive an upgraded package, so order the soft drinks deal and receive the house drinks package, or book in for the house drinks deal and get upgraded to the Champagne deal. Once brunch ends, the party still isn’t over, as all ladies will receive a voucher for an additional drink in Uptown Bar or Beach Lounge to watch the sunset over the iconic views of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah – the perfect way to end a girl’s day out.
