With the temperature rising on a daily basis, March is the opportune month to make the most of the beach before the summer swelter sets in, and Drift Beach exemplifies what dreamy Dubai beach days are all about.
Located within the grounds of One&Only Royal Mirage, Drift offers luxury but with a low-key vibe – think private four-poster cabanas next to the infinity pool, Instagram-worthy hammocks nestled along the turquoise shoreline, and a restaurant menu created by Chef Maxime Le Van that includes French classics such as steak tartare, grilled calamari, steak frites and pissaladière – the French Riviera’s take on pizza.
But its Drift’s five-star service that really sets it apart and almost supersedes the stunning surrounds and picture-postcard views, which take in Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina’s skyscrapers – there’s even a dedicated staff member on hand to clean your sunglasses and deliver cold face towels at various points throughout the day.
At weekends, guests can soak up the sun and live entertainment from 2pm, and continue to revel in the chilled ambiance as the sun sets with sundowners on the terrace.
And every Monday and Tuesday, female guests can enjoy beach and pool access with a welcome drink for Dhs100. So round up your best girlfriends, activate your OOO and laze away the day in the most elegant way.
- Drift Beach access costs Dhs200 on weekdays, Dhs250 on weekends, and Dhs100 on Mondays and Tuesdays for female guests. To book, call +971 4 315 2200.
