Would you want to be taken to a helipad and given a tutorial on three different kinds of caviar? I didn’t think so. So there is this bizarre offering by St Regis Abu Dhabi where you have the chance to book into what the hotel claims is a Luxury Aficionado Experience. You get picked up in a Bentley – provided you are in a 50km distance away from the hotel. You will then be taken to the helipad, which is 255-metre high. The weather is good this time of the year, so you might be able to enjoy some good view and breeze at that altitude with a ‘time-honoured’ St Regis bubbly.
Once you settle down to dine, you can indulge in tasting the Private Collection Caviars including Kaluga, Beluga and the King of Caviars “Almas.” A Caviar Cognoscenti (caviar expert) from Gourmet House will guide you through the textures and engineering of these exotic bites. After you have savoured the fish eggs, you will be escorted to the hotel’s exquisite Al Manhal Suite which offers bespoke views of the city and sea. The package includes an in-room, customised breakfast option, exclusive access to the Nation Riviera Beach Club, a takeaway gift of Beluga for two with handcrafted mother of pearl spoon as well as return transportation in the hotel’s private Bentley. The package costs $10,890. A way to spruce up this package would have been to try and get guests to be an Arab princess or a genie in a bottle or something. Like that exciting James Bond package.
