Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Sofitel Dubai The Palm will soon open doors to the Laguna Lounge, a Mediterranean-inspired boho-chic beach destination that effortlessly captures the coming together of ancient Greek agora and the French Riviera. The newest venue welcomes guests to indulge in private luxury cabanas, dine al fresco in the lounge area or bask under the golden sun.

Located within Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah stretch, Sofitel Dubai The Palm’s latest offering is the perfect draw for party lovers looking for the most exquisite spot in the city to unwind amidst unparalleled luxury and elegance.

Upon entering the lounge, it will transport you to the beautiful Greek Mediterranean islands with Laguna’s boho-chic interiors inspired by Cycladic elements. Pick one of the private luxury cabanas as your retreat, and rest under the golden sun, where dappled sunlight will filter through the sheets, lighting and shading the space simultaneously. Shaped in a grid of natural eucalyptus wooden columns, Laguna Lounge houses its dining and lounging arrangements within a “forest” of tree trunks, with an imposing 100-year-old olive tree at the centre.

For an even more exclusive experience, the pagoda-style VIP cabanas with barasti walls offer more privacy and elevated views of the ocean and Palm Jumeirah skyline. Experience the best of Dubai’s day and nightlife at this popular beach lounge.

A part of the lounge’s ceiling resembles the waves on the beach, offering a rhythm to the place. These purposely designed and naturally occurring elements create a multi-sensory architecture that sits in harmony with the environment, providing natural, comfortable refuge, thus, creating an exciting, sociable atmosphere for guests. There are whitewashed stairs and uneven stone walls that bring to mind the narrow alleys of Mykonos.

While you absorb the goodness of ‘Mediterranean-elegance’, a fantastic menu of carefully curated recipes including sushi and sashimi, grills, salads, and more await your taste buds, along with an extensive menu of the finest white and rosé wine selection from around the world. Lagunas Lounge’s cocktail menu has a unique take on the Mediterranean theme, incorporating ingredients and edible garnishes that evoke the power of the sea.

Live DJ entertainment from sunset until late on weekdays and afternoon until late on weekends with its ‘Big Beat Boutique’ concept, where party-lovers can enjoy Ibiza-style tunes in a lively atmosphere, in the company of the best music entertainers from all over the world. The DJ is perched in a booth resembling a turret turns up the music every night of the week. With direct beach access, Laguna Lounge is a gathering place meant to galvanize the community’s artistic, spiritual, and social life.

Laguna Lounge is designed to create a unique atmosphere of elegance with panoramic views of the sea and the breath-taking Dubai skyline in the backdrop, making it every Instagrammer’s paradise.

This trendy beachside lounge also offers shisha service, making it more appealing to a wider audience. Although adult-friendly, it allows access to children over 12 years only when accompanied by an adult.
