Situated in the centre of Bluewater’s Island, near to Ain Dubai, The Pods restaurant offers delectable Pan Asian dishes and inventive beverages with distinctive combinations of flavours and ingredients. With breathtaking views of the Dubai Skyline, The Pod’s menu draws influence from a variety of Asian dishes, including miso-marinated black fish, robatayaki grills, rock crab with truffle, and real Japanese sushi. Just a few weeks before the establishment opened, the name was changed from Botanica to The Pods in order to better serve the many cultures and languages present in Dubai. Within the restaurant, twenty-two pods of various sizes are located in the exterior area. Each pod enhancing the nightlife within Bluewater’s Island by offering a personalised VIP service. Our team were honoured to support the construction of this fine dining facility and display our niche finishes throughout.

Our experienced craftsmen installed Richmond WPC wooden decking to the entire exterior area to meet the design requirements of The Pod’s and to offer various additional benefits. Richmond WPC Decking is an extremely durable and very low maintenance decking system, vastly incomparable to traditional decking solutions. The polymer embedded mixture separates itself from the market and supports the strength of the surface whilst offering additional flexibility. The flexibility of a wooden exterior system is crucial for applications within Dubai as the high temperatures can encourage cracking, debonding and warping. Our decking system is also a sustainable alternative to standard wood flooring as it is recyclable, eco-friendly and low carbon. The WPC decking will continue stand the test of time and we are delighted to see our beautiful finishes featured in such a prestigious establishment.

Our team of skilled crafstmen consider it a pleasure assisting our clients in realising their visions and producing faultless finishes that the endless restaurant visitors will admire as soon as they arrive. Every employee within our company contributes to the success of our projects, and we have every faith that for many years to come, the New Build & Refurbishment sector will continue to value the work we have done throughout the region. The legacy of Duphill will continue to grow and prosper with our outstanding results and a driven workforce.
