If I were to choose which place I will bring a visiting guest in Dubai to spend the afternoon in, Nasimi Beach will be one of the top 3. It gives you a different vibe like you’re totally outside of the Middle East with its very laxed environment. The rates are a bit on the pricey side but the ambiance is just absolutely amazing so you probably wouldn’t even notice how much you’re paying for a badly mixed and very diluted mojito that you’re drinking. They started to have a cover charge of AED150 per person every Fridays (I’m not really sure if they do it everyday though) which I think is worth it if you’re going to spend the whole afternoon until the early evening there. HOWEVER, along with the pricey drinks and a minimum spend for every person, there should be a great customer service to back it up with which is clearly missing in this place. Ever since I started going there, the service has been consistent – bad and close to nothing. We ordered fries which never came, a vodka and sprite arrived as a daiquiri (they do one hell of a mix up with all your orders) and the charcoal on our shisha was never changed. That bad. So the place must be really really pretty for me to still choose it as one of the top 3 places to visit in Dubai.
Well, you be the judge. 🙂
