DINE: CAPILA POOL BAR – KEEP IT COOL BY THE POOL

 

Enjoy a relaxing Sunday afternoon by the stunning Capila Pool & Bar at Hilton Yas Island, in one of the best pool-day deals around! Starting at just AED210 you can relax with a crafted beverage in hand, a delicious Latin style bar-bites buffet, and amazing live music to bop along to. We absolutely loved the mini chorizo hot dogs and the made-to-order refreshing seabass ceviche – and the rose froze is going down on my list as the best cocktail in Abu Dhabi! Couple this with pool access for a dip when things get a little too toasty, this pool day will be giving you holiday vibes in no time!

Kicking off on Saturday 5th of November, you can chill out on bean bags watching Simba and the gang with The Lion King at 5:30PM, get your dancing shoes on with Footloose at 7:30PM, and duck from those rolling boulders like Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark. What’s more Footloose will turn into a full theatrical spectacular with live dancers and more!
