Enjoy rooftop drinks, dinner, an overnight stay, breakfast in bed and late check-out at this sleek new five star hotel…
Whether you’re looking to experience one of the UAE’s luxury hotels in another emirate or stay closer to home, summer is a brilliant time to check in to some of the city’s best hotels for a fraction of their usual price.
And we reckon this new ‘Bliss of Summer’ offer at Grand Plaza Movenpick Media City will tick all your boxes. Central location so not far to travel? Check. Brilliant facilities? Check. Dinner and drinks included? Check, check, check. And it’s a steal at Dhs799 per night, based on two adults sharing – that’s less than Dhs400 per person.
The hotel is handily located just off Sheikh Zayed Road, and having only opened in March this year, the entire interior fit-out is grand, from the plush carpets to the dramatic chandelier that hangs in the lobby.
Guests can check-in from 2pm, and will be treated to a beautifully-designed superior room. Spacious and elegantly finished, each room is fitted with a king-sized bed and super sized TV, perfect for a lazy day watching movies.
After check-in, why not work up a sweat at their state-of the art gym, or make your way to the lengthy alfresco pool that looks out towards the sea for a quick dip?

Two house drinks are included at TWENTY THREE, the hotel’s sleek rooftop bar. Whether you fancy a pre-dinner drink or a post dinner nightcap, you can take advantage of the stunning views across the city while you’re there. While you might go for the drinks included in the staycation deal, you’ll definitely want to stay for their signature cocktails, which are creatively named and served in inventive glassware.
Then, make your way to dinner at Verve, the upscale new brasserie by local chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price. The set menu starts with oysters, followed by seasonally changing signature dishes such as a watercress soup topped with a crispy quail egg, and the standout wagyu beef covered with a creamy mushroom ragout. A bottle of wine is also included.
The next day, wake up in your comfy superior room and enjoy breakfast in bed at a pre-requested time. The lavish breakfast spread is served on a wooden tray, piled high with a generous eggs benedict, museli bowl, fruit selection, just-warm batch of croissants and pastries and a hot beverage of your choice. We can’t think of a better way to start the day…
Then with check out not until 4pm, you’ve got the whole day to make the most of the facilities at the Grand Plaza Movenpick Media City, whether it’s lazing away the day poolside under one of the shaded cabanas, or taking advantage of 50 per cent spa treatments at the SensAsia spa. Featuring five relaxing treatment rooms, as well as dedicated male and female steam rooms and saunas, guests can pamper themselves for half the price with an array of calming massages and invigorating facials.
To avail the package, guests need to book and check in between July 15 and September 30 using the promo code BLISSOFSUMMER.
