Bentley Motors created the UAE’s highest fine-dining restaurant on the summit of the country’s tallest mountain, Jebel Jais, in Ras Al Khaimah. The ‘Peak of Luxury’, which opened its doors on September 30, served 150 diners a specially designed menu of classic British dishes created by renowned chef, Colin Clague. It remained open for seven days.
The restaurant was constructed to celebrate the Middle East launch of the eagerly anticipated Bentley Bentayga V8 and Continental GT, and to demonstrate the sheer levels of bespoke luxury Bentley delivers through truly extraordinary experiences.
Located on the summit of Jebel Jais, 1,934 metres above sea level, Bentley’s luxury dining room was styled in keeping with a traditional Arabic tent. Stepping inside the tent, guests were transported to a five-star luxury restaurant with hand-picked contemporary furniture, sumptuous materials and spectacular panoramic views across the mountain top. British chef, Colin Clague — who has worked in some of the region’s leading restaurants including the Burj Al Arab, Ruya and Zuma— curated a bespoke five-course menu which took inspiration from the luxury and performance traditions of Bentley Motors and its illustrious history in grand touring. Using the finest local produce, Colin Clague individually designed each classic British dish with a Middle Eastern twist for the special occasion. Known across the globe for its dynamic twisty mountain pass roads, Jebel Jais played host to Bentley’s two newest models — the perfect testing ground to showcase the vibrant performance of the all-new Continental GT and sporty Bentayga V8.
Stephen Reynolds, Regional Director for Bentley Middle East, Africa and India said: “We deliver extraordinary experiences every day, whether it’s a visit to one of our showrooms, a test drive in one of our superb cars or the Bentley ownership experience. The Peak of Luxury is a true demonstration of the lengths we will go to to bring the values of the Bentley lifestyle to life and offer an extraordinary experience our customers won’t find with any other car brand.”
