Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai brings European glamour to the waterfront of Pearl Jumeirah. From the (first and original) luxury beach club brand, the combined club and resort is situated on its own stretch of soft white beach and overlooks the Arabian Gulf’s blue waters. Uniting music, dining, entertainment, fashion, film and art into one, each element epitomises its global success.
Nikki Beach Dubai invites each person who steps through their doors to celebrate life wholeheartedly. This mantra that is applied to each Nikki Beach across the globe in loving memory of Nicole Penrod, the daughter of Jack Penrod who founded the brand in memory of his fun-loving daughter following her death in a car accident aged just 18. This touching story adds a heart-felt heritage to the glamourous, care-free brand which started in 1998 as quiet garden restaurant on Miami Beach.
From Tuesday through to Sunday each week, platters of sushi, magnums of rosé wine and a soundtrack from the resident DJ make Nikki Beach Club Dubai one of the city’s most exciting spots for kicking back under the sunshine. A large pool with a swim up bar takes centre stage and is surrounded by luxurious cabanas alongside a smart restaurant and four tier shisha terrace. This includes sleek architecture and design throughout with the brand’s signature all white décor with tribal influences for a fun, bright setting.
It’s worth moving from your cabana to the restaurant to enjoy the beach club’s widespread restaurant. A place that encourages those who visit to spend the whole day, enjoy long, lazy lunches with friends and family whilst sharing high-quality dishes created for the brand’s international clientele. This spans from starters, main courses and desserts to sushi rolls, a raw bar and caviar.
Popular with many are the generous selection of sushi platters, including the California or Dragon role, each that reflect the various Nikki Beach destinations across the world. Meanwhile, other menu highlights at the Dubai outpost include warm, toasted chicken quesadillas, the Miami beach Caesar salad (in honour of its original roots), Australian angus beef sliders and chicken satay.
If you’d like to live and breathe the Nikki Beach brand whilst visiting Dubai, then you also have the option to stay at Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai. Situated just next door to the beach club, it has been created for discerning travellers with 117 rooms and suites, as well as 15 private pool villas and 63 lifestyle residences. At 100 square meters for two adults are the Ocean Luux Suites. Spacious suites that endeavour to offer ‘superior’ comfort and style, each features an elegant yet simple setting that is synonymous with the brand, tastefully furnished with a king-size bed and a stylish living area.
Meanwhile at 162 square meters is the ‘Ultimate Suite’ for a group of four fun-loving adults. Situated on the top floor of the resort with plenty of outdoor space, this two-bedroom suite is the ultimate party pad. With blue touches and elegant wooden details, the bedrooms and living areas feature a full-length window frontage with sliding doors opening onto the large terrace. The master bedroom lies in the centre of the suite overlooking the Arabian Gulf, whilst outdoor on the terrace enjoy private dining after days spent with other guests around the pool.
From its beach clubs to the resorts, each Nikki Beach turns a tragic incident on its head to ensure Nicole’s high-energy spirit lives on whilst adding to the lives of others. Love it or hate the glamourous group, it is undeniably the leading international beach club brand with locations also in St Tropez, Santorini, Mallorca and Koh Samui.
