Enjoy sundowners over Saadiyat at Shala Beach Lounge, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel & Villas:
Shala Beach Lounge returns with a holistic approach to align its visitors’ mind, body, and soul into pure bliss. Derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘home’, Shala was inspired by the need of bringing like-minded people together to form a community where they disconnect from the world and are engulfed by the beauty of nature the venue has to offer. Lounge and sip on creative cocktails as you bask in the panoramic view of the sparkling sea and sun-kissed Arabian sands. While indulging the taste buds with hearty, modern flavours, the menu is influenced by the “farm to table” approach with the locally sourced produce.
