Before you take in any other information, let’s just clear this up: there IS a new Four Seasons in Dubai, and it has just opened in DIFC.
I am, of course, speaking from experience when I took an embarrassing trip to the existing hotel, trying to find Penrone. My friend who joined me on the day ended up in an argument with her taxi driver because he simply did not believe that a Four Seasons had open, AND my other friend, who came to pick me up afterwards, also drove to the wrong hotel. Consider this your lesson learned.
Anyway, to get back to the fabulousness that was Penrose, this super cuter little afternoon tea is probably the best one I’ve ever been to in Dubai. With stunning views over looking the Burj Khalia, the most Instagrammable glass tea pots you ever did see, and homemade scones and jam to die for, you simply need to add this to the top of your to-do list. With the choice of three packages (tea, prosecco or champage) this is the perfect place to spend your weekend, whether you’re looking for a girly afternoon or you have a someone visiting Dubai for the first time wanting to see the sights. I plan on heading back there after Ramadan with my dad and sis for a belated Father’s Day celebration.
