Dubai Enjoys Unprecedented Tourism Boom

The UAE’s most populous city is enjoying an unprecedented tourism boom, with Dubai hotels welcoming a record 11 million guests in 2013 alone. This represented an increase of over 1 million visitors from 2012 statistics, meaning the impressive city is well on its way to achieving its 2020 goal of 20 million tourists. Popular restaurant Mamma Mia is the perfect pit stop for hungry holidaymakers, serving up a mouth-watering menu of authentic Italian and Arabic cuisine on Dubai’s famous marina.

Located in the prestigious Radisson Blu hotel and overlooking the stunning Dubai Marina, the restaurant is ideally situated for travelling couples, friends, families and individuals looking for a memorable dining experience. As one of Dubai’s most respected dining locations, Dubai Marina is a mecca for travelling foodies and local gourmands alike. Renowned for its hearty Italian fare and authentic Arabic offerings, Mamma Mia is a fantastic dining choice for travellers from all over the world.

According to research released from the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, the majority of tourists travelled from Saudi Arabia, India, the UK, Russia, Kuwait, Germany, Oman, Iran, China and the USA. The Australian market accounted for the most growth, with numbers surging by a huge 39% from 2012 figures.

Nadia M’hamdi, General Manager of Mamma Mia, says, “Dubai is currently experiencing an extraordinary tourism boom and at Mamma Mia, we’re always ready to welcome guests from all over the globe with open arms. Dubai is a big city and what better way to take five and refuel than with a delicious lunch or dinner from our spectacular Dubai Marina location?”

Those craving a taste of Europe will love the extensive selection of home cooked pizza and pasta dishes made with the freshest ingredients. From fiery arrabbiata and creamy mushroom fettuccine to crispy primavera slices and the celebrated Mamma Mia special, they are the perfect way to fuel up after a long day exploring the many sights of Dubai. For travellers keen to immerse themselves in local culture, Mamma Mia also offers a range of wonderfully aromatic Middle Eastern delights. Succulent grilled lamb, fragrant chicken, silky smooth hummus, zesty tabouleh and warm flatbreads are just some of the dishes whipped up by the expert team of in-house chefs.

Sweet toothed travellers will be in their element with a range of irresistible desserts and drinks. World famous Haagen Daaz ice cream and sorbet is the ideal way to cool down in the stifling Dubai heat while the indulgent range of cakes and mixed Arabic sweets are also incredibly popular. 

In addition to delivering on flavour and variety, Mama Mia offers Dubai’s increasing number of visitors exceptional value for money. For those travelling on a budget or with a large family in tow, a leisurely lunch time visit or evening out at Mamma Mia won’t take a huge chunk out of those holiday spends.

As Dubai’s tourism numbers continue to soar, Mamma Mia is set to emerge as the go-to restaurant for travellers seeking extraordinary flavour, friendly service and unmatched value for money.
