Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre opened a brand new Dilmah Silver Jubilee Gourmet in partnership with Dilmah Tea, founder Merrill J. Fernando who set up and built one of the finest tea companies in the world.
Stocking premium teas from Dilmah, the lounge will be open daily from 6am to 11pm.
The Sri Lankan family tea company, Dilmah was founded in 1988 by Merrill J. Fernando, who was present at the launch yesterday along with his son Dilhan Fernando. Fernando has dedicated his life to tea and created the first company to offer unblended tea from a single source; ‘picked, perfected and packaged’ at one destination.
As tea is the second most frequently consumed beverage across the world after water, Fernando’s pioneering of single blend tea has ensured that Dilmah is widely recognized across the globe as a brand that represents the utmost care and artistry.
“We are honored to be partnering with such a prestigious tea company to offer our guests something exclusive in the Middle East. We are always looking for ways to ensure those who are visiting our hotel have a unique experience and the Dilmah Silver Jubilee Gourmet will strengthen this further. Pullman brand places significant importance on the wellness aspect in the guest journey, and we strongly believe that Dilmah Tea and its various complementing uses will benefit that cause for our guests,” comments Nishan Silva, General Manager at Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre.
