St. Regis Abu Dhabi Opens Brunch in Top Suite
The highly-vaunted suspended suite finally opens itself to the larger public for an exclusive period.
The luxurious $40,480 a night suite at the St. Regis Abu Dhabi hangs suspended in the middle of the 48th and 49th floors of the two towers making up the whole hotel. It is precisely this position that warrants its exclusivity and that somewhat exorbitant price, other than the money spent in tailoring up the interior design and amenities to their finest quality of course. This very note makes it the kind of thing only accessible to the 1% of the 1%… at least, until now.
For a limited period of time, St. Regis will open the suite for a series of brunch events aptly named ‘Brunch in the Clouds’. For a comparatively lesser cost of $110 (or US$180 with bubbly), you can gain access for a brief moment to the highly vaunted interior of the suite.
The interior of the Abu Dhabi suite is 1,120 square metres, with various aspects like a cinema, a spa, and two-storey majlis (Arabic salons or lounges). The décor has cascading crystal and 24-carat gold leaf accents. From the windows you can view a panoramic view of the Arabian Gulf, the Corniche, and the city skyline. While watching that view and enjoying the atmosphere, you’ll be able to taste the different courses served in different rooms, like the oyster room, cheese and dessert space, caviar ice-bar, candy room, and private bar for champagne-spiked brunch cocktails. The private spa will be accessible for shoulder massages, or a manicure.
The first brunch will be held on April 29, but monthly events will follow on the final Friday of each month (except for June, due to Ramadan). For those who want a tingle of what it’s like to cross the threshold, this makes the perfect opportunity.
