Partner Content: The Epicurean Discovery promises pure dining bliss.

While a combination of natural beauty, discreet luxury, and abject tranquillity draws staycationers to Al Wathba, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa in Abu Dhabi, a new offering that’s perfect for foodies has caught our eye. For the uninitiated, this desert resort is set deep within the dunes, offering an accessible escape less than an hour’s drive from the heart of the capital. Here, 99 guest rooms, suites and villas are spread across quiet grounds dappled by the shade of palm trees and decorated with traditional artwork and Arabesque detailing. Though boutique in size and spirit, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to entertainment and dining – a sprawling spa, a palm-fringed infinity pool, plenty of attractions in the vicinity, and globally inspired restaurants ensure there’s something for everyone.

Food connoisseurs will gravitate to the Epicurean Discovery, which offers a chance to savour the best of Al Wathba’s dining that spans a wide and creative variety of dishes – all within one staycation. Diners can embark on a culinary journey that traverses the globe. Crispy pizzas, homemade pastas, and rich and creamy tiramisu can be enjoyed on the atmospheric outdoor terrace of the FACT Award-winning Terra Secca, which happens to be the perfect place for taking in memorable sunsets and starry skies. For lunch, refuel with the likes of poke bowls, healthy snacks, burgers, wraps, and vegan specialities beside the pool at Panache, where a swim-up bar offers a convenient option for guests to have drinks while cooling-off.

Breakfast is served at the always inviting Bait Al Hanine restaurant, where everything from pastries and freshly baked breads to Arabic classics like shakshuka and an array of mezzeh await. Bait Al Hanine also caters to the health-conscious staycationer, serving both vegan and gluten-free options. Guests can further enhance their stay within the soothing ambience of Saray Spa by making the most of its many facilities – the Snow Cave and Salt Room included. The Epicurean Discovery includes a one-night stay in one of the elegantly furnished rooms, full-board (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
