My top gala dinners and locations to ring in your New Year’s Eve with panache
Looking to go glam and live the quintessential New Year’s Eve in Dubai Dream?
Dubai is the place to be on New Year’s Eve as we are absolutely spoilt for choice. Sometimes this leads to difficulty planning and deciding on where best to celebrate, especially, if you want to see the famous firework displays dotted around the metropolis. With that in mind, I have found you the perfect celebrations which promise it all for New Year’s Eve in Dubai. Who doesn’t want an effortless evening of romance, hope, and dreams of things to come? And nothing makes things seem more cheerful and hopeful than sparkles. All that light reflecting and bouncing off every conceivable surface; sequins on our dresses, showers of light in the sky, and gorgeous shimmering decorations surrounding us. Utterly romantic.
Crucial then is getting the perfect view of the firework displays around the city. So, if you are looking for something rather swish and ultra-glamourous, these options might appeal.
The Atlantis on the Palm
Any list worth half its salt would not be complete without mentioning this beauty. If you are looking for a truly out of this world, super luxe, spectacular experience, we recommend booking the one of a kind underwater suites. You can glam yourself for your night out in style while communing with spirits of Neptune and Poseidon themselves; then come up for air and join the celebrations on land. You will be able to look up to the sky and have a first-class view of the spectacular fireworks the Atlantis is renowned for.
Their Royal Gala Dinner also intends to be an affair to remember. Nothing but the finest will be on offer including lobster and caviar. Evening gowns will be de rigeur and bubbles will flow non-stop. No expense has been spared and the live entertainment will be epic. A 30-piece live band will kick off proceedings, playing until 3am on New Year’s Day. Definitely a party that will help you create memories and start 2017 off in style.
The Address at the Montgomerie
With unparalleled views of the Dubai skyline, The Address is hosting a cabaret themed evening called A Magical New Year’s Eve. So, put on your dancing shoes and little black number for this spectacle. With The Address you can expect nothing short of class and elegance.
The Rixos Hotel
Right at the end of the Palm, there is a magical hideaway and one of the best kept secrets of the Palm. The Rixos Hotel. A hideaway from the hustle bustle, most locals don’t make it this far. But they should because it would be quite the lapse in judgement to miss out on one of the best locales in the city, especially for a fairytale evening. If you seeking laidback glitz, then look no further than their special Under the Stars event. Not one but two swanky bands will get you in the party mood while you enjoy a beach buffet with an unlimited selection of bevvies. Besides the live music, there will be various entertainment acts including a Broadway musical. This promises to be a gala to impress.
One of my favourite hotels in Dubai is hosting a Gala Dinner on the Gulf Lawn which will position you perfectly to capture views of the fire sparkles over the Palm as well as JBR itself. So, you will get panorama views to share with your friends or that someone special. Complete with a specially conceptualized Winter Fairytale theme, there will be an ice bar to keep you chill on the outside and warm on the inside. Snow will abound and pine trees will glisten with snowflakes, creating a perfectly romantic setting to ring in 2017.
