The trés chic beach house Maison de la Plage opens on West Beach – The Palm Jumeirah.
A picturesque beach house, and gourmand destination capturing the essence of Côte d’Azur opens on 10th February, nestled on the pristine beaches of West Beach – The Palm Jumeirah. A concept created by Chef Izu Ani and Evgeny Kuzin, Maison de la Plage offers a symphony of azure hues, sophisticated style with heavenly day beds, glimmering pool and beach-style restaurant. A culinary haven with coastal charm infused with the elegance of the French Riviera.
The culinary gem, at the heart and soul of the beach house, is the market, harking back to Chef Izu’s serendipitous encounter with his wife in a bustling French marché. From the catch of the day to vibrant vegetables, and carefully selected meats, the rustic charm of Le Marché is a showcase of the finest ingredients, each telling a story of freshness and quality.
Expect an array of dishes, made from fresh from the market ingredients, rustled up into a variety of dishes. Dive into mouth watering cold plates such as the Carpaccio de Boeuf, beef carpaccio topped with parmesan cheese and truffle dressing. Not to be missed, the famous Izu Burger, creamy Lobster Linguine, Grilled Octopus with bell peppers sauce and roasted potatoes or tender Marinated Lamb Cutlets. Chef Izu’s culinary love story is told through each bite, an ode to the allure of French cuisine.
The third venture of Chef Izu brings to life the spirit of the French Riviera. La Maison Ani, his flagship restaurant or main house offering timeless sophistication and Le Petit Ani being the second little sister restaurant. The new beach house, Maison de la Plage radiates a playful, relaxed French-Mediterranean menu – imagine leisurely meals with friends, clinking glasses by the sea.
The design is as captivating as the flavours, echoing elegance throughout. Designed by renowned interior design, London studio First Within headed by Founder Richard Saunders and Design Principal Andrea Ginetto. Maison de la Plage transcends conventional aesthetics seamlessly blending the timeless allure of Cote d’Azur. The choice of rattan not only adds an element of sophistication but also enhances the connection between the design and its coastal surroundings. The overall concept of Maison de la Plage aims to create a nostalgic yet lively atmosphere, where quality is paramount.
Starting with a serene breakfast overlooking the sea, a sumptuous dinner or sunset drinks, the beachfront oasis turns into a hub of energy and celebration as the night unfolds. It’s the perfect transition from refined dining to a lively night out. Guests can lounge on plush daybeds in colours of the Côte d’Azur, reminiscent of idyllic villages in the South of France. The cabanas offer a private escape with the added bonus of palm trees rustling, the pool a cool oasis under the open sky, and the beach, stretching endlessly with nothing but the sound of waves.
Accompanying the beachside journey, Maison de la Plage will welcome world-renowned brand Melissa Odabash. The designer, who attracts an endless roster of A-List clients, is excited to be opening her first boutique in the UAE. The collections offer high quality resort wear including luxe swimwear, elegant beachwear, elevated dresses, lounge and an array of accessories that will have you covered from beach to cocktail hour.
