This expertise and flair, combined with his drive to innovate and produce exciting menus full of flavour, aroma and colour matches perfectly with the brand ethos of Terra Solis Dubai.

“Standing out from the crowd is exactly what we want to do, and, with Hugo’s culinary insight and experience, we are creating a dining destination in its own right in the Dubai desert.”

With Terra Solis Dubai due to officially open in November, Soulery “Hugo” will be responsible for overseeing the launch of a range of exciting dining and lounge venues, including MESA, opening in December, set to be the star dining attraction at the desert destination.

The restaurant, which will focus on delivering delicious sharing dishes, will give guests the opportunity to taste the whole world in an incredible setting created by the team behind Tomorrowland, in the spirit of travel, good food and togetherness.

The menu is expected to feature a range of dishes representative of countries around the world, prepared with ingredients from passionately dedicated growers, farmers, and producers sourced according to market availability and made with respect for traditional preparation methods and accompanied by a wide selection of drinks and cocktails and, of course, the incredible music synonymous with Tomorrowland.

“Dubai is at the very epicentre of the culinary world right now, the Michelin Guide and the Gault & Millau awards recognising the world-class offering available in the city. At Terra Solis Dubai, we are committed to delivering an F&B offering that is representative of the Tomorrowland brand, while always striving to deliver something new and unique to the culinary scene in Dubai,” said Soulery “Hugo”.

Terra Solis Dubai will also feature an eye-catching bar, centrally located near the pool, and the Sala shisha lounge, as well as a host of other F&B options.
