CÉ LA VI Dubai

The renowned CÉ LA VI in Singapore is coming to Dubai and will be opening at Address Sky View. Offer unparalleled views across the city, the venire will be home to a pool, restaurant, sky bar, club lounge and contemporary Asian cuisine. We recommend keeping an eye out for the official launch date so you can book before the crowds.

Pay A Visit to Sonara Camp

If you want to escape Dubai for a few hours this month but not go too far and don’t want a staycation, the Sonara Camp has the answer. After recently launching their new dining experience, this will be an evening like no other.

Situated in the Dubai Desert Conservation, the eco-friendly restaurant concept is the first permanent and licensed one of its kind in Dubai. A specially crafted menu sees authentic Arabian dishes, Eastern, Western and French cuisine combined and once you have feasted and the sun has set, venue out to the outdoor cinema. 

Party It Up On New Year’s Eve

The sheer amount of options of where to spend the final evening of 2019 is overwhelming. Whether you have views of the spectacular display at the Burj Khalifa or Burj Al Arab, are taking part in the Atlantis’ annual gala, are beachside at Zero Gravity or are spending the evening on a special desert safari; Dubai on New Years Eve is probably the most magical place to celebrate.
