Looking for ways to kick start the Christmas festivities? Head to Barracuda for some festive cheer as they prepare to celebrate 25 years with a special seasonal festival from Friday 20th till Saturday 21st December.
Finish off your Christmas food shop by exploring the store’s range of sweet delicacies including traditional Christmas puddings, butters and sauces and rich fruit cakes, as well as everyone’s favourite festive chocolates, biscuits and candy treats.
Or head over to Thunder Road restaurant to pick up some Flamigni Panettone, which has been specially imported from Italy. This firm Christmas favourite, which is sure to fly off the shelves this December, is available for just AED 149 for 1kg while stocks last – with smaller sizes also on offer.
Pick up some last-minute Christmas gifts for your loved ones with a range of personalised items available in store – and gift-wrapping taking place from 10am till 4pm each day during the festival.
And, continuing the Christmas theme, Barracuda’s outdoor plant store will be fully stocked with all your favourite festive plants and flowers including poinsettias, holly and mistletoe. They’ve got a range of real Christmas trees on sale priced from AED550 to AED875 on a variety of sizes. Stocks are available from 27th November, so get in quick to avoid disappointment.
Peter Hinde, Area Manager Retail, Barracuda, said: “In celebration of Barracuda’s 25th anniversary, every customer using our retail store app during the festival will be entered into a lucky draw with the chance of winning AED 2,500 in loyalty points which will be automatically added to their app wallet.
“In addition, to this, the retail store will also be offering an advent of special deals for customers from the 1st of December through until Christmas Day, with the deal of the day unveiled on social media each morning.”
Visitors can enjoy a special Christmas-themed buffet inclusive of turkey and all the trimmings at Barracuda Beach Resort’s Aquarius restaurant for just AED 85 (plus taxes) per person on Friday 20th December. Or why not try out Thunder Road’s festive ‘Thunder Star Pizza’ and a beverage just for AED 99 before making the journey home.
With perfect weather at the moment why not settle down on the outside deck and relax whilst the kids play in the playground? And with Christmas face painting, balloon modelling and decorating and a choir singing all your favourite Christmas carols as well as a host of other fun stuff from 11am to 1pm on both days, there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained.
