Last weekend, my baby girl Farasha and I headed out to spend a weekend of leisure, pool time and great food at newly opened Hyatt Place, Wasl District Dubai.

Being over-confident with directions and over-trusting Google Maps, I ended up at Hyatt Place Jumeirah instead! I was assuming ‘Wasl District’ was in Jumeirah, but it turns out this branch is bang opposite Al Ghurair Centre in the heart of busy, bustling Deira, Dubai.
