For the most VIP New Year’s Eve celebration imaginable, upgrade to the Platinum Experience at Sofitel Dubai The Palm. There are two magnificent options to choose from, both of which are designed with the city’s most discerning connoisseurs in mind.
First, an adults-only party at Laguna Lounge, our magnifique beachfront bar with its mesmerizing views of the shimmering Palm Jumeirah skyline. Time Out Awards Best DJ Nominee DJ Darryl Rees (renowned for playing at Dubai’s top beach and night clubs) will be spinning tunes late into the evening, while magician Aron White captivates audiences as he moves from group to group. And, on the culinary menu, a never-ending procession of delights starting with Hadid Gold Edition caviar served directly to your table. With your appetite whetted, explore a bevy of individual food stations serving everything from oysters and sushi to gourmet salads and foie gras cooked right before your eyes. Mains range from dry-aged Irish rump to slow-cooked short ribs – and desserts are just as multicultural. Think rose muhalabiya, raspberry choux buns, and British mince pies.
If exclusivity is your top priority, our private beachfront cabanas offer the most luxurious setting imaginable for your New Year’s Eve celebrations. Situated directly in front of the main stage – with soft sand at your feet and the velvet blackness of the Gulf just a few feet away – you’ll have front row seats to the musical stylings of The Edge Show Band. You will also have access to Maui’s buffet extravaganza, as well as the option to order directly from the cabanas’ exclusive sharing menu… A box of the finest caviar, perhaps, or a selection of French and Japanese oysters. Charcuterie, chilled seafood, or a selection of small plates ranging from roasted guinea fowl to truffle-infused squash. Desserts are, of course, unashamedly extravagant, with gold-coated baklava taking center stage. There are just five cabanas available, each of them capable of hosting up to 10 guests.
Packages for our New Year’s Eve Platinum Experience are priced according to the venue you choose. For Laguna Lounge, they cost AED 3,500 for adults and AED 1,750 for teens aged 16 to 21 years. This includes free-flowing house wines, beers, spirits, and Champagnes. Cabanas are not priced per person; instead, each one has a minimum spend of AED 30,000. All bookings must be prepaid to confirm your place. Our cancellation policy permits a 50% refund for reservations cancelled 30 days before December 31. Cancellations made within 15 days of the event are non-refundable.
