A little escape out of the ordinary is what most of us yearn for. And I was lucky to have been invited to one such tropical oasis in Dubai’s Conrad Hotel. Hidden behind the Conrad Hotel’s 6th Floor access is Puro Beach Urban Oasis.
The laid-back chic pool bar cum restaurant is an absolute favourite among weekend wanderers in Dubai and I hope a lot of tourists know about it too. Do not expect breathtaking views of Dubai’s skyline; rather be prepared to immerse yourself in wonder and amusement at every corner of this chic bar. Surrounded by beautifully landscape gardens, tropical plants a gorgeous waterfall and over hundreds of sun beds for guests, this tropical style venue definitely appears like an oasis. You’d actually forget what lies beyond its walls.
I arrived early to enjoy the sun and sip in some lovely Strawberry Daiquiri while enjoying the brilliant view from my private cabana. It’s a little too lush than I had imagined but it all comes with a positive and amicable vibe.
The restaurant at Puro Beach is extensive and it offers guests a great view while enjoying some sumptuous food. My friends and I sampled the Chicken Quesadillas, Prawns and Calamari’s for the appetizer. And they tasted really good. For our mains we went the seafood route and ended up ordering he Green Thai Curry Prawn ( this was my favourite) and Fish & Chips. We were totally immersed in the coastal vibe and finished off our meals with some delicious red velvet cream cheese cake before moving back to our cabanas.
Aloha! Those cabanas were the most relaxing and welcoming; the attentive staff had beautifully decorated the cabanas with fresh fruits, water and towels all prepped up for the sun worshipers. A perfect nap is what I took after having that brilliant meal.
Once you dip into the Mediterranean styled pool, you’d simply love everything about it as much as I did. That gorgeously decorated waterfall takes center stage in this pool and you can either choose to get wet there or swim all across the temperature controlled pool at your leisure. Amidst all this fun, one kind staff got us some lovely cocktails to enjoy while we relaxed by the pool. Once the sun went down the actual party was just about to begin. Illuminated pool, cool breeze and tons of cocktails, you name it they have it all. We did meet some travelers who enjoyed coming to Puro Beach every time they are in Dubai. I was amazed by all the hospitality and fun that Puro Beach has to offer.

Puro Beach Urban Oasis definitely makes you feel millions of miles away from Dubai. And it’s kind of a perfect getaway if you’d like to unwind during the day and bask in the glory of the night sky before you return to your slumber.
