Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 15, 2016: Palm Grill, the casual beachside restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai, is inviting guests to experience the best of the Arabian Gulf, with its new ‘Catch & Grill’ package. The offering, available for in-house guests and ‘daycationers’, includes a fishing trip aboard a yacht, a day pass for the pool and beach facilities, and dining amidst the rustic charm of Palm Grill, where guests can enjoy the fruits of their labor as talented chefs serve their morning catch.
The four-hour sport fishing experience begins at 7am when guests board the 31-foot yacht, and enjoy breakfast up on deck, whilst setting sail to one of the Gulf’s best-known fishing spots. The boat’s experts will then guide guests on how to fish for their catch, with common species including Kingfish, Barracuda, Snapper and Emperor Fish.
Following the fishing experience, guests are invited to relax at leisure around the luxe swimming pools and lush, landscaped gardens of the Mediterranean-style beach resort, before enjoying a three-course lunch or dinner at Palm Grill, the only dining destination located directly on the sand along JBR’s The Walk, with breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf. The fish will be grilled and served with seasonal vegetables, sweet potatoes and assorted condiments, accompanied by a selection of signature appetizers and desserts.
The Catch & Grill experience is available Sunday-Friday (lunch only on Fridays) for groups of 2-8 guests, and advance bookings are essential. The cost for two guests is AED 2,700 and AED 350 for each additional guest.
Palm Grill specializes in grilled seafood, complemented by a fun menu of tropical drinks and island-inspired cocktails and is open daily from 12pm-6pm for lunch, 4pm-7pm for sundowners and 7pm-11pm for dinner.
Saturdays welcome the ‘Chill & Grill’ beach BBQ brunch from 1pm-4pm, a unique casual brunch concept where guests can enjoy unlimited barbecued food, and music from a live ‘island style’ band, which also performs on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm-9pm. New to Friday evenings are ‘Bonfire Nights’, where guests can gather around a fire pit and enjoy traditional Caribbean dishes such as curried goat and jerk chicken, with a live performance on the steel drums.
