Upon our entrance to this majestic hotel, i was taken aback by the towering archways and the opulent interiors of the hotel with flickering arabesque lanterns dressing the ceiling along with a wave of natural light seeping throughout the lobby, courtesy of the palm fringed beach of Al Muntazah right outside the hotel. We were greeted kindly at the reception and warmly welcomed by the supervisor Rahul , who gave his added insight and details of the hotel as well as its history.

Experience top notch Emirati and Lebanese cuisine at its finest at the recently opened restaurant Arjwan a short while ago.As the saying goes, We eat our eyes which is why i am completely awe struck with the elegant turquoise interiors .The head Chef Mohd worked his magic creatively with some beautifully presented dishes in the menu sure to tantalize your tastebuds.
Some like it cold, some like it hot! Presented on a beautifully laid platter is a delicious combination of both hot and cold mezze containing 6 options of appetizers of different varieties leaving the flavours to explode on your palate!
My favourite comfort food- The kibbeh – which blew me off with a suprise as the chef asks us to play a guess game as to what meat it contains- we surely could not get the right answer even if we tried- brace yourselves- it is “baby shark meat”. Interestingly enough, it tasty just like lamb meat. Yum nevertheless .
Moutable – an Arabic delicacy which is an eggplant based dip with pomegranate, it also happens to be my favorite dip as eggplant happens to be one of my favorite vegetable- although i usually love it fried with batter- this dip is my ultimate favorite with the richness of the pomegranate blending in together with the slight tanginess of the brinjal makes for a perfect unison.This tangy dip also happens to be an integral part of the cold mezze options from the platter at the restaurant.
The chefs signature dishes at the Arjwan restaurant – dill rice blessed with tender and juicy cuts of camel meat, one of the
Many kinds of meat used in Arabic cuisine, one of the many aspects of this cuisine promises hospitality and the traditional mixed grill containing succulent pieces of kebabs and meats leaving your tastebuds wanting for more.The flavor is spot on withe meat being tenderized which leaves the meat all the more delicious.
