Tea off at these lovely lobby lounges in Abu Dhabi

If, like us, you’re wishing a cup of tea on National Chai Day, here are a few fantastic ways to get started…

We’ve noticed it a lot lately, and we’re sure you have as well. When you arrive to one of town’s trendiest hotels, there are as many people visiting the lobby as there are eating at renowned restaurants. Lobby lounges are modern, and here are a few of the best in the city.

Majlis Lounge

Head down to the Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s Majlis Lounge and enjoy their ‘A Sense of Place Afternoon Tea’. Their carefully curated menus include tea, scones, and much more, along with local favourites like the delicious layered Baklava with Gold Ice Cream, while viewing the city. With Al Ain date scones, plain scones, and finger sandwiches with garnishes like smoked salmon, beef bresaola, and Romesco spread, you’re spoiled for choice. The dessert menu activities its muscles, with items such as Apricot Paradise, chocolate tied dates, passion fruit merengue, and much more.The Classic English Afternoon Tea, The Vegan Experience, and one created for severe vegetarians (but no less tempting) make up your menu options. Just be sure you save 48 hours in advance if you have 5 or more people in your group.
