4 reasons to celebrate the festive season at Qasr Al Sultan
We’re half way through December and we won’t be surprised if you tell us that you still don’t know what you’re doing for both Christmas and New Year’s – don’t worry, we, as always are here to help. We’ve scanned the city and found a place that we believe may just have the perfect festive offering for you and your loved ones. Introducing Qasr Al Sultan, a five star gem located in the heart of city’s desert – talk about celebrating both Christmas and New Year’s in style.
1. The setup is royal
Qasr Al Sultan translates to “The Sultan’s Palace” and that’s exactly what you feel like you’re doing the minute you step into the venue that boasts everything from high arch domes to rustic wooden interiors and traditional Middle Eastern keepsakes.
2. They are giving Christmas a Middle Eastern twist
On December 25, Qasr Al Sarab will undergo a special transformation to treat you to the ultimate Christmas offering right in the heart of the desert. Think Christmas carols, a traditional feast consisting of turkey, roast and more as well as a visit from Father Christmas himself. And, while the little ones may not be able to see reindeers this Christmas, they will be able to ride a camel and a pony. There will also be a live band on hand to help keep the festivities going.
3. The feast will be just as impressive as the setup
To help you make the most the merry occasion, Qasr Al Sultan has decided to swap its usual buffet offering for a hearty festive brunch. From just AED295, you will be able to indulge in a feast that consists of both traditional Christmas favourites as well as dishes that are sacred to the region – we can just taste the perfectly cooked lamb chops now. If lamb isn’t your thing, don’t worry. There will be a number of live cooking stations on site that will be serving everything from seafood to veggies to other meat cuts.
4. The New Year’s Eve party will be spectacular
You can look forward to seeing a number of traditional Arabic dances (Tanoura and Dabka) as well as hearing as some of the nation’s most loved Arabic songs sung by the venue’s in-house band and international band. There will be fireworks and great food on offer too – see, they really have thought of everything. The New Year’s Eve offer is priced at AED600 (inclusive of food, water and selected fresh juices) and AED950 (inclusive of food and house beverages).
