Meydan Beach Dubai : Brunch by the Beach



The Jumeirah Beach Residence is Dubai’s place to be along the sea.  Tourists flock here for the many outdoor shops and bistros. Many hotels are in the area  to ensure a steady flow of vacationers from far and wide.  In the middle of it all, fronting and amazing beach and azure water, you’ll find a chic haven and cosmopolitan hang out, the Meydan Beach.



During the winter months. Dubai ranks among the sexiest places on the planet right along with Miami and St. Barths.  The international jet set congregate here and you’ll hear French, Italian, and Russian spoke in between English with varying accents. They are the sun seekers, escaping the bitter cold of everywhere else   for the good times and good weather of Dubai.  There’s always a lot going on in Dubai with weekends  filled with hundreds of events from concerts, to food fair, to art and fashion events.


The place where this flock migrates is the Meydan Beach . It’s is a happy place where all the worries of the world stop at the door. The ambiance starts with up tempo lounge and house music which keeps the spirit positive.    Women in designer swim suits, stilettos, and blingy shades laze around by the pool and “rotisserie” every twenty minutes to ensure that perfectly even tan.  Men, who spent all week in the gym, come to flex their wares while sipping on fancy cocktails.


Meydan Beach has several areas the seamlessly flow together to allow you to enjoy  days and nights by the beach. There is the Azure Bleu Beach bar, the Meydan Beach bar,   three pools,  private cabanas and access to the Jumierah Beach just yards away.  Indoors there’s a full gym, spa, and ladies salon.



I spent a recent Friday afternoon enjoying Brunch by the Beach at the Sur Mer Restaurant. Indoors it is a beautifully designed modern restaurant with a Mediterranean motif. I decided to dine on the patio to enjoy the warm sea breezes and overlooking the action by the infinitely edge pool and to take in the amazing views of the cerulean blue Arabian Sea .


Brunch started with a stroll along the impressive buffet of appetizers to start and sweets for later.  Brunch is a sumptuous mix of Mediterranean, Arabic, Asian, and continental dishes tastefully prepared with fresh ingredients.  I started with the Thai Chicken salad, Taboleh salad, and spinach quiche.  I also enjoyed a bottomless glass of flavorful sangria that was a nice addition to the meal.



The main course is served hot from the kitchen and all  comes at once in an impressive spread of plates . . The aroma of spices and grilled meats fill the air as the friendly waiter goes about serving the five item main course.



The main course included Seafood Pumpkin mezze mainche, Asian Noodles, Asparagus Risoto, Beef Tenderloin with mashed potatoes and truffle sauce and Grilled Salmon.  It was the perfect combination of continental dishes and I absolutely loved the grilled salmon which had just the right touch of sea salt and spices ensuring a flavorful treat with each morsel. The dessert buffet did not disappoint either with the selection of sweets of every type from cheesecakes to almond Florentine.


Our meal was wonderful as was the attentive service that we received. The setting overlooking the sexy pool scene, the up tempo lounge music and the Arabia sea made me feel as I was in St. Tropez in June.


Just as we finished our meal, the music kicked up a notch and I decided to head over to the other side of the venue to the Sundowners party at Azur Bleu.  This trendy spot is the watering hole for Dubai’s cool set who come out to enjoy cocktails and conversation as the sun sets.  It’s the perfect venue congregate with friends to end the day at the beach or to start off the Dubai night life.



I happened to be there when the team from the beach wear fashion brand Orlebar Brown were kicking off their new collection with  one of Dubai most fashionable venues, The Boutique 1.  The place was buzzing with the fashion industry and a nice sprinkling of models and bottles. As the house music played, the 20 and 30 something’s chatted over clinking glasses. With the sun setting and sipping on a signature cocktail, I reflected on my amazing day cation at Meydan Beach.



There are many ways to enjoy the beach. For those looking to soak up the sun in a  chic and cosmopolitan scene, with a scrumptious Brunch by the Beach, then the Meydan Beach is for you. For any day of the week and especially on Friday or Saturday, the Meydan Beach Dubai is the place to be.
