Under the sky with ikandy ultralounge



Shangri-La Dubai

Shereen Shabnam

Regular patrons at Shangri-La Dubai love the al fresco life at ikandy ultralounge as the venue opens each year for the cooler season.  My regular gym time at the hotel is often cut short as the outdoor ikandy lures me out for fresh air and pool time, particularly in the cooler season in Dubai.

This year, the official opening party of ikandy ultralounge that was held recently saw the venue back in action for Season 11 and is now followed by a new weekly promotional schedule. The party saw guests enjoying light snacks with a drink package as well as entrainment by Brazilian dancers and tunes from DJ Nadia.

Some of the new promotions at the venue for the new season include Sparkling Sundays, which is the perfect new way to start the week. Each Sunday, ladies can enjoy unlimited bubbly from 8pm to midnight for AED 160 per person.

Ladies Night will take place every Monday from 7:00pm to 10:00pm with free flow on selected beverages. In addition, ladies can avail buy one, get one drinks from 10:00pm to midnight.

ikandy ultralounge blends poolside bliss with signature cocktails, refreshing, flavoured shisha and delicious light bites with stunning views of the Burj Khalifa. A full line up of new and upcoming DJs will be spinning the decks throughout season 11, including DJ Nadia and DJ Mikilove.

For guests keen to be indoor, the hotel has many other cuisine options and a relaxing spa that seamlessly blends the Far East Asian roots of the hotel with Arabian inspiration for a truly unique experience.

Whether you are a busy traveler, an exhausted executive after business meetings or a busy mother, being at the Shangri-La Dubai and at ikandy ultralounge is the way to reclaim some ‘me time’ and get some al fresco time with breath taking views of the Dubai skyline.
