WEDNESDAY, MAY 26
We’ll be booking in for Sensasia’s brand new body-firming treat this week as it launches with a brilliant 25% discount on the usual price. Hydrate & Sculpt is an all-natural but ultra-stimulating body scrub and wrap combo using the powerful detoxifying and sculpting properties of magnesium and coffee to tone and target stubborn fatty deposits.
This is followed up with Natura Bissé Citrus Radiance Therapy, a facial packed with vitamin C to hydrate, firm, and restore vitality to sun-damaged skin, stimulate collagen production, and provide that standout summer glow. We’ll certainly be feeling beach-babe fabulous after this glorious 120-minute treat.

THURSDAY, MAY 27
Running until May 31, the 10th edition of annual charity initiative Ataya – organised by Emirates Red Crescent under the Patronage of HH Sheikha Shamsa Bint Hamd – pools an array of talented artists and designers from across the GCC to showcase an exquisite range of handcrafted pieces on the newly launched Ataya online shopping destination.
Offering a selection of unique fashion, accessories, homeware, and food, Ataya has supported several life-changing initiatives over the past 10 years. This includes building schools and hospitals, empowering communities through giving access to education and healthcare, and even building a complete village for a community suffering from enormous upheavals. Through donations and exhibitor participation fees, this year’s initiative aims to offer 200 fully funded training grants for nurses from select universities in India, the Philippines, Egypt, Albania, Bosnia, Mauritania, and the UAE.
FRIDAY, MAY 28
Brunching is back on the agenda, and we can’t wait to revisit one of our favourite brunches in town. Created by acclaimed Portuguese chef José Avillez, Tasca’s Friday brunch not only boasts delish Portuguese food and fab drinks, but also the most stunning views over Mandarin Oriental’s infinity pool and the ocean beyond. Roll on, Friday!
From 12:30-4pm, priced AED 350 including soft drinks and AED 450 with house beverages. To book, call 04 777 2231.

End your week the cultured way with a fabulous evening of classical music performed by some of the region’s finest artists. The fourth in a new series of chamber music concerts by the UAE Classical Talents and presented by Alliance Française Dubai in Oud Metha, ‘A Night in a French Salon’ begins with works from Debussy and Chopin performed by pianist Ioannis Potamousis before being joined on stage by a string quintet to offer the audience the full concerto for piano and orchestra No. 2 by Camille Saint-Saëns in its salon version. Magnifique!
