So this is a place that I know for a fact you will love. After attending the press opening for Summersalt I am literally in love with this place. I’ve been back so many times and it’s the perfect place to be if you want to soak up the best of Dubai. The view, the food, the music and the vibe is by far the best I’ve found all in one place. When you visit be prepared to be welcomed with ‘Ciao Bella’ by Stefano who manages Summersalt. He is such a warm and welcoming person and will make you feel as though you are his most important guest.
So let me break it down for you…
By Day – It’s a beach front cabanas with butler service and the most iconic view at a stones throw. I haven’t visited Summersalt during the day so I can’t comment too much on this.
By Night – It’s the perfect place to meet friends, chill over wine or shisha and enjoy amazing food. Every time I’ve visited it’s been at night and it’s my favorite place to chill now. You can either get a table by the pool or relax in the chilled shisha area.
The Staff – The guys and girls working at Summersalt are very professional. Each time I’ve visited they have somehow remembered not only me but also my preferences. For me this place rates as one of the best in Dubai when it comes to service.
The Food – You will find an International mix of food inspired by the Mediterranean. My favorite dishes are the Risotto and the Miso Glazed Black Cod. To be honest, it’s one of those places where you just order a mix of dishes and share.
The Music – The DJ plays some of the best vibes you’ll hear and you will find yourself shazaming most of them!
The Vibe – It’s a chilled beach vibe which makes you forget how late it is. There have been plenty of times I’ve left way past the intended time to leave and it’s purely because you lose track of all the stress and just chill.
The View – If you think you know places with a good view of the iconic Burj Al Arab then I can assure you that you don’t. Summersalt is literally a stones throw from the Burj Al Arab with nothing in between. It’s the best view you’ll find in Dubai without having to actually visit the Burj Al Arab.
The Shisha – I’m a shisha lover and this place ranks in my top 5 of best Shisha in Dubai. You don’t have to usher the staff for coal and you are thoroughly looked after.
