Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel rings in the festive season

Stay and Dine packages - Dhs 1,950 for two nights over Christmas and Dhs 2,150 for two nights to mark the New Year

The 396-room Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel in New Dubai has launched two festive packages that include accommodation and dining.

For Christmas, a two-night stay for two people arriving on December 23 or 24 is on offer for Dhs 1,950 per room, including breakfast with a choice of either Christmas Eve brunch, dinner  or Christmas Day lunch at Mistral, including beverages.

Meanwhile, at just Dhs 2,150 for two people, for two nights checking in on December 30 or 31   the hotel’s New Year package is a perfect ‘Christmas stocking filler’. The offer includes breakfast and a New Year’s Eve Dinner at Mistral. 

Mistral is the interactive total dining restaurant at the Gate that delivers eclectic freshly-cooked, pan to plate dishes inspired by the Moorish Arabesque kitchens featured in the travel log of the 14th century journeyman, Ibn Battuta. 

Private beach and pool access at Oceana Beach Club

Guests at the Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel have complementary access to the Oceana Beach Club on The Palm Jumeirah, just 15 minutes away by the hotel shuttle.
