Lounge in a Chic Atmosphere
At the hotel we pride ourselves on having some of the nicest restaurants and lounges in town, led by a great food and beverage team as well as talented chefs – our creative artists. Together they create unbelievable culinary experiences for our guests.
With the aim to have the most chic hotel lobby in the world, our food and beverage and culinary team worked on developing Aspen by Kempinski, our luxury lobby lounge that was unveiled in December last year. Aspen was always a popular venue with our guests as well as Dubai residents, however it was time to bring it to the next level.
Aspen by Kempinski features a snow wall, which is 5.5 meters high, and 18 meters long, and made out of glass reinforced plastic. The idea behind the design was to highlight the European tradition and luxury and blend it with the unique location of the outlet near Ski Dubai. It resulted in an ambience of winter, which is furthermore reinforced with the crystal chandeliers and the Swarovski crystal wall in the lounge.
Adding to the ambience is the unique marble used in the lounge, coming from the mountains of Isola Di Ortonovo in Italy. The marble is so precious that the usual polishing machines aren’t suitable to maintain it in good condition so the hotel has hired an expert external supplier for this meticulous job.
When it comes to the culinary side of the lounge, it offers guests a delicious à la carte menu from which they can order some of the yummiest dishes in the hotel. One of the most attractive parts of Aspen by Kempinski is the tempting display of tantalising pastries and cookies that is absolutely impossible to say no to… Especially for all dessert-lovers out there.
Tchaba tea is served in Aspen by Kempinski and with its delicious flavours it spreads a beautiful aroma across the lounge. Guests are also able to smell and touch the 21 different varieties of tea on offer before choosing their favourite one to savour.
But what would a chic lobby lounge be without the perfect coffee machine? To deliver the best of the best, the coffee machine used is Victoria Arduino Venus Century Espresso Machine. Only 100 pieces of this machine were produced worldwide, and the hotel has the last piece, 100/100. To complete the coffee experience we use coffee beans from the exclusive Dallmayr brand.
So to enjoy our delicious tea and coffee and the fantastic ambience of Aspen by Kempinski, pass by the lounge and why not indulge in our renowned Afternoon tea, after all it has been voted as one of the top 10 best Afternoon Teas in town by Ahlan magazine.
