Opening 1 October 2020, the newest dining offering is the highest in the UAE and provides an elevated experience using locally sourced ingredients paired with extensive vistas of the Hajar mountains
RAK Leisure, (RAKL), the lifestyle subsidiary of RAK Hospitality Holding (RAKHH) announces the launch of 1484 by Puro on 1 October 2020. The highly anticipated restaurant located atop the Jais Adventure Peak is named for its height of 1,484 metres above sea level and is the UAE’s highest restaurant offering.
Located next to the Jais Adventure Centre, 1484 by Puro offers guests magnificent views of the peaks and valleys of the Hajar mountains alongside a refreshingly delectable menu. Ideally positioned on the mountain-facing façade of the Jais Adventure Peak, an entire side of the venue consists of ceiling to floor glass windows that open up to uninterrupted views of the serene landscape, framed by year-round sunny blue skies and breath-taking sunsets, where guests can marvel at the spectacle of warm evening hues and the far-reaching mountains beyond. The dining offering incorporates fresh locally sourced ingredients, expertly crafted into a series of dishes that promise to appeal to the diverse array of guests that make their way up to the Jais Adventure Peak. The restaurant is the latest venture by PURO, an independent dining concept with two existing restaurants at Al Marjan Island and at the Jais Viewing Deck Park.
Serving up a variety of healthy, flavour-packed options with a nod to the delights of the Arabian Gulf only meters away and temperatures that are around 10 degrees lower than sea level, 1484 by Puro welcomes diners to try breakfast favourites such as Eggs Benedict, traditional Shakshuka and more. Sweet-toothed guests will delight in the S’Mores Pancake topped with marshmallow cream and maple syrup, as well as the Banana Boat Granola with yoghurt, berries, raw honey and almonds.
Heartier options are offered for lunch and dinner, including Calamari Fritti, Wasabi Shrimp and Korean Fried Chicken amongst others. Diners can move onto a selection of main courses ranging from Fish and Chips, Duck Confit, Braised Beef Ribs and Pan-Fried Seabass. Dessert is not to be missed with decadent Sticky Date Pudding and Tiramisu, to name a few.
Alison Grinnell, CEO of RAK Hospitality Holding shared, “Jebel Jais is one of the most popular landmarks in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, offering visitors a host of bucket-list adventures that guarantee memorable experiences. With the opening of 1484 by Puro at the Jebel Jais Welcome Center, visitors can now enjoy an all-encompassing experience at the standalone destination that is the Jais Adventure Peak, home to thrilling adventure attractions such as the Jebel Jais Flight, Jais Sky Maze, and the Jais Sky Tour.”
The venue will operate in line with the highest safety and hygiene measures, recommended by internationally recognised bodies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centres for Disease Control (CDC), as well as will adhere to federal directives. Stringent measures include a maximum seating capacity of 76 guests, sanitary equipment and the adoption of the necessary distancing measures.
