All throughout March, over 20 top restaurants in Abu Dhabi and Dubai are celebrating women across the UAE, by offering a complimentary 30 minutes of spa pampering for every AED 295 spent for lunch or dinner.

The month of March has become synonymous with celebrating women and all they represent, as two key calendar occasions fall in the social diary.

To celebrate, over 20 top restaurants in Abu Dhabi and Dubai will provide a complimentary 30-minute spa voucher to any woman dining alone or as part of a group, when they spend a minimum of AED295 on lunch or dinner. This March is all about the girls, so be it your mum, sister, friend, mentor or grandma, take some time out to celebrate the special women in your life and enjoy relaxation moments at UAE’s most luxurious spas including Saray Spa, The Heavenly Spa, Iridium Spa and Six Senses Spa.

3. On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Comptoir 102 is proud to celebrate women through poetry with Clementine du Pontavice‘s exhibition ‘Women, Invisible Gold’.

Clémentine du Pontavice 'Women, Invisible Gold'

Portraits & Illustrations

Come and discover “Des Femmes, l‘Or Invisible“ (“Women, Invisible Gold“) Exhibition by French Artist and Illustrator Clémentine du Pontavice at Comptoir 102 in Celebration of International Women’s Day. The exhibition celebrates the uniqueness of all women and the illustrations tell the story of their subjects. 

To create her artworks for the ever-growing “Des Femmes, l‘Or Invisible“ exhibition, Clémentine meets the women she is illustrating to question them. She then captures very instinctively, what touches her about their personality and achievements, what seems intelligent, surprising, essential. She then makes the portrait in her own way; an embroidered illustration, a song, a text or even a soundtrack.

A Word From The Artist

‘I wish to pay tribute to all women in their diversity to reflect the reality of the world. ALL those who have an incredible journey, a temperament out of the ordinary, a courage to all test, a vibrant desire, an unfailing commitment … ALL women who will cause me an emotion, ALL … regardless of age, environment, by profession … all those who will cross my path, voluntarily or not, during this adventure.
Draw, think, write, sew, sing a constellation of women’s portraits which will allow each and everyone to find themselves in a mirror: This is my idea. Inventing your life and your voice, your way of doing or directing is not a question of gender, but as women represent 52% of the world’s population and it is urgent that they acquire public and economic recognition. They still work too often in the shadows while their actions, their genius, their courage is one of the major fuel of our societies.’

Women can choose between ‘From Time to Thyme’, which is a non-alcoholic sparkling wine, fresh pineapple juice, lemon tonic water, garnished with thyme served as a spritzer, or ‘Flow of Rose’, which is a mixed of glera grapes, crème de framboise, and lemon and dehydrated rose petals.

On Thursday, 8 March, all female guests at La Petite Maison restaurants in Dubai and Abu Dhabi can receive a free glass of these drinks, whether at a family get-together, romantic dinner for two, lunch date with loved ones, or evening soiree with girlfriends.

Diners can enjoy a menu of French Mediterranean classics, including burrata, warm prawns, deep fried baby squids, baby chicken, grilled lamb cutlets, grilled rib eye steak, grilled tiger prawns, baked sea bream, salt baked seabass, grilled veal chop, whole roast Black leg chicken with foie gras, salad of green lentils, and black truffle Pasta.

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This year, it will be held under the theme of #PressforProgress for gender parity.

This day of solidarity and recognition of gender inequality has been observed since the early 1900s, when women first fought for better pay and voting rights in the United States. Fast forward to today, and women are not only voting but breaking the glass ceiling.
