Nasimi Beach - The Atlantis, Dubai
Nasimi Beach: Flights are always tiring and it’s nice to be able to drop your bags off and head straight to a restaurant with a great view of the pool and beach, that instantly gets you into the mood for a holiday. Nasimi Beach, my favourite of all the Atlantis restaurants, is the perfect spot for casual beach chic dining, to unwind and soak up the sun, enjoy a swim or just relax and admire the views.
The menu spans a variety of culinary delights from sushi and sashimi, Asian cuisine and Mediterranean favourites, with a great selection of new world wines, contemporary cocktails and beers. A fantastic seafood platter with lobster, salmon and my favourite tiger prawns made for the best lunch!
As day turns into night, with the back-drop of the Dubai skyline lighting up, Nasimi transforms into an intimate haven with the atmospheric sounds of resident and international DJs spinning the decks. Definitely the busiest of Atlantis’ restaurants through our stay, Nasimi has my vote for the perfect beach holiday place to eat.
The hotel has so much more to offer from its award winning spa to Aquaventure the largest waterpark in Asia, but we’ll probably need another visit to cover all that!
