The Middle East’s first sub-zero lounge is decorated with ice sculptures, unique seating and illuminated interiors. All are maintained within a -6 degree Celsius environment, providing an icy escape that makes for a memorable chill out experience. There are hot drink options to help guests banish the icy chill and a variety of classic hot meals on offer.
Once visitors arrive they are given thermal clothing to keep themselves warm in the minus six degrees. This comprises of a hooded parka (a heavy jacket), woollen gloves, shoes and socks, if required. Visitors are advised to spend a few minutes in the ‘buffer zone’ area to get acclimatized. The temperature in the buffer zone is set at 5 degrees Celsius, which gives the body time to adjust to the low temperature in the main Chillout Ice Lounge.
