Celebrate the start of the week in style with an elegant afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge at The Ritz Carlton DIFC, featuring a wide variety of specialty tea blends along with a selection of luxurious sweet and savoury treats for just AED 169. And if you feel like upgrading this exquisite tea experience, add a glass of fizz for an additional fee.

With afternoon tea available daily from 8am to 6pm, we’re loving the fact you can indulge in almost every time zone on the planet, should you so wish!


April sees a star cast of experts in art, fitness, nutrition, and more taking part in healthy eating hub Flow’s latest Flow Talks Series. Taking place live on Flow’s Instagram account every Tuesday at 4pm until May 11, Flow Talks Series – The Ramadan Edition features creative makeup artist Nadine Hossam with a live Ramadan makeup tutorial this week, followed by UAE-based artist Mona Fares giving a masterclass in tie-dying clothing at home on May 4.
