PHOTOGRAPHER: FELIPE SILVEIRA

Turquoiz, as the name suggests, embodies the turquoise blue ocean that captivates guests on arrival. A beach restaurant with a large sunset terrace, this vibrant venue is set apart from the hotel as a rustic series of buildings strung out along the sand.  

Turquoiz serves a selection of succulent seafood, light meals and sumptuous snacks, cooked with simplicity and passion. We had a lovely lunch followed with lovely dessert.

At.mosphere sits on level 122 of the world's tallest building with breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf. Have you ever tried their signature drink Passion Pearl; yuzu juice, fresh basil, red peppercorn, gin, watermelon liqueur, passion fruit caviar decorated with the most beautiful rose flower petal? I hope this description will get you inspired to try something different that simply rises above the rest. Passion Pearl is by far the best that drink that I've ever had.
