On our first night at JA Lake View Hotel, we dined at Kinara by highly acclaimed celebrity Indian chef, author and Bollywood actor Vikas Khanna.

I had the pleasure of dining with Chef Khanna a couple of years ago at his award-winning restaurant Junoon. Handsome as he is charismatic, he has harnessed his talent at recreating Indian classics with much panache and ease, and I was therefore very excited to try his menu at Kinara.

Imagine going for just 2 nights away, and Instagram telling you that your Insta Stories can’t take any more uploads… that’s how click-happy I got throughout my weekend away at JA Resorts, Dubai’s largest experience resort!

Located in a quiet corner of Jebel Ali (Dubai) and minutes away from the Expo 2020 site, JA Resorts is a sprawling 128-acre resort boasting of three 5-star luxury hotels (JA Beach Hotel, JA Palm Tree Court and JA Lake View Hotel), an 800 meter private beach, a world-class golf course and tennis courts, 25 restaurants and bars, an equestrian center and so much more.

Versatile, compact enough for the smallest of makeup bags, eco-friendly. Just a few of the entire list of reasons I love NudeStix.

With NudeStix, the ‘no makeup makeup’ look is child’s play. I can even do it by the pool! Click on my Instagram post below to see for yourself:
