“PIK-NIK” Returns to the Westin


Happiness is all about the sweet moments of life. Lush greenery, pleasant weather, cool breeze of sea, abandoned laughter, chatter of little boys & girls, a basket full of delectable goodies, sprawling on a mat / bean bag laid across the grass and a relaxed brunch with family- that is how Buzzingtales stumbled upon  happiness one fine Saturday at Pik-Nik  at The Westin Dubai, Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina.

With the weather Gods smiling upon Dubailanders, this lovely Picnic was pleasant respite from the technology laden & mall driven entertainment. It was indescribably soothing to listen to the live band playing lively music as we lazed around in bright red bean bags and picnic mats. Kids were entertained by a spirited juggler who taught them a few trick, letting the parent have some couple time. There was more fun in the activity area designed for the kids as well as the young at heart adults – what with balancing games, balloon fun, and face painting. Inviting aroma of barbeques, crepes and freshly baked breads invaded the air. Romance bounced and bubbled in the air as couples could take their minds off the rushed city environs and relish the park & sea views or perhaps dash over to indulge in the beach activities and swimming. Buzzingtales sighted a small group of people at the picnic spot enjoying a Halloween themed birthday party. What an novel place to celebrate?


The Westin Dubai, Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina’s popular Saturday Pik-Nik, which has returned to the Westin for the new season is clearly a winner all the way. Buzzingtales discovered that,  the new season is much bigger and better.  For just AED 390 per basket, that caters to 2 adults and 2 children (excluding beverages) a family can purchase a basket full of old world charm, fun, happiness apart from the whole lot of delectable eateries. Buzzingtales loved the delicious assortment of breads, cheeses and charcuterie; mini salads; dips; condiments; pickles and pastries.  We also relished the refreshing ice-tea . Guest are also  able to purchase beach access at a special rate of AED 200 for adults and AED 125 for kids between 4 and 12.


Pik-Nik, which takes place between 11.30am and 4.00pm is designed to give families quality time together within the beautiful surroundings of the Westinresort. Every week guests are treated to an

ever-changing schedule of interactive entertainment, from face painting to kid’s club activities. Buzzingtales feels that Pik-Nik is the best gift one can give to the family. Go savor the weather and enjoy some precious quality time with your near & dear ones at Pik-Nik.
