Where: Four Seasons Hotel, DIFC
The Lowdown: What would you expect from a Four Seasons hotel within the financial district of Dubai? You’d expect it to be luxury, sure. It is a Four Seasons after all. You’d also expect it to have excellent culinary options for those business lunches. And it certainly does have these things. Perhaps, however, you’d expect it to be a little soulless, or lacking in character. Rest assured, the second offering from the Four Seasons brand in Dubai smashes through any corporate stereotypes. With working from home mentally more pervasive than ever, Four Seasons Hotel DIFC is all about providing a lifestyle — whether you’re visiting for a staycation, entertaining clients, or simply indulging yourself. This winter, check out The Resident’s Key offer which includes a whole array of insider upgrades and amenities for Dubai residents.
Stylish Eats: The hotel provides a wide range of dining options, designed to cater to its suave business clientele through the lunch hours, as well as the more relaxed guest well into the evening. The well-known Mina Brasserie offers sharing-style dishes crafted by award-winning Chef Michael Mina. Culinary highlights include the aubergine mille-feuille, Cafe de Paris striploin, and brussels sprouts agrodolce. Indulge in a long business three-course lunch with Mina Brasserie’s latest daytime offering where guests can select from the wider A La Carte menu for only AED 120. If sunsets and astrology are more to your taste then a visit to Luna Sky Bar, Four Seasons Hotel DIFC’s jaw-dropping rooftop bar, is a must. They have created a Zodiac Cocktail Menu with 12 astrology-inspired cocktails that will indulge your personality, regardless of your Zodiac sign.
Suite Talk: All rooms exude a much-needed sense of calm with taupe tones and fluid curves throughout. For that home-from-home feeling, the terrace suites offer over 1,800 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space, perfect for the winter months. The terrace suites also come with a whole host of amenities, from an espresso machine to orthopedic pillows, and even a PlayStation or Xbox on request.
Insider’s Tip: Be sure to visit the Churchill Club this winter. With wood-paneled walls, overstuffed sofas, and warm textiles, this resident cigar lounge is the ultimate cozy spot during the cooler winter months that will transport you to the British homeland of its namesake, Winston Churchill.
