Where better to celebrate Christmas Day than at Sofitel Dubai The Palm, where the relaxed vitality of the South Pacific meets a distinctly French commitment to luxurious style? This year, our Christmas Day brunch will be hosted in one of two spectacular restaurants.
The first is Manava, a haven for families defined by its abundant sunshine and welcoming terrace, where stunning views of the jade-colored ocean and Dubai skyline can be seen from a distance. Even better, the beach is just steps away, making it easy to keep the kids entertained between courses when you book a day pass. Festive family activities will also be hosted in the adjacent garden, including themed games and Christmas crafts. Meanwhile, parents are free to enjoy a lively ambience beneath shade-giving umbrellas listening to a live duo music band.
For couples and families with grownup children, Porterhouse offers a sophisticated alternative setting. With its wine-cellar-style interior décor and pergola-shaded terrace, this award-winning steakhouse brings a certain savoir faire to the Christmas brunch. This sense of understated glamor is enhanced by the sounds of the Toi Jazz Trio, whose fusion style reinvents current chart-toppers with elements of classic soul, jazz, bossanova and swing. Regardless of the venue you choose, the same exquisite buffet will be laid on for your enjoyment.
Highlights from the elaborate Christmas buffet include assorted sushi and nigiri, artisan charcuterie, a seafood bar, meat and vegetarian antipasti. Gourmets will appreciate classic British pies filled with steak or turkey, as well as a British roast corner with lamb ballotine stuffed with spinach and pine nuts. The main courses are just as diverse. Savor orange-infused duck leg, perhaps, or a Mediterranean seafood casserole. Either way, be sure to save space for a vast selection of indulgent desserts, ranging from four kinds of bûche de Noël to a fountain of white chocolate.
Brunch is served from 1pm to 4pm on December 25. There are several packages to choose from:
