Even though it’s been unseasonably warm, it would still be nice to escape from the NYC winter with a staycation at Nikki Beach Resort & Spa that opened in December 2016 in the city’s Pearl Jumeira development. Boasting 117 rooms, 15 suites and 63 residences with sea and skyline views, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa in Dubai also features four pools, a tennis court, state-of-the-art gym and the Nikki Spa.
If that’s not relaxing enough, there are also five restaurants and lounges where you can unwind after a day of serious shopping or sunbathe. With so much happening, you basically never even have to leave the luxe resort. Now, the drinks.
Where to Drink at Nikki Beach Resort and Spa

The cafe serves a Saint Tropez brunch every Friday that features Cote d’Azur inspired beverages that can be consumed inside the restaurant or outside with the Arabian Gulf as the backdrop.

What to Drink
If you are under the impression that it is illegal to consume alcohol in the Middle East, it’s not. Dubai’s licensing laws require venues serving alcohol be attached to hotels or a private clubs. It is illegal to drink on the street or in a public space. The legal drinking age is 21 and it is an offense to buy alcohol from an off-licence without an alcohol license. You’ve been warned.
