Why go camping when you can go #glamping ? The hospitality industry has coined this new phrase by marrying the experience of the big outdoors with the convenience and luxury of resort-style living.
Bin Majid Beach Hotel launched the Longbeach Campground late last year, and my little family and I were one of the very first people to have the pleasure of spending the first night under the stars, in a beautifully setup tent (click here if you missed it). I absolutely loved the experience, and really didn’t think it could get any better.
But the team at Bin Majid Beach Hotel have outdone themselves with the launch of their second season last weekend. The entire campsite has been given a major facelift, complete with three very different styles of tent options, an infinity pool and an outdoor floating cinema. I could hardly recognize the place! This is #glamping at its best.
Friday brunches have become a bit of a Dubai institution. The list of great brunch spots around the city is endless; but if you are looking for an absolutely palatial setting, complete with views of the iconic Burj Khalifa and an endless pour-down of fine beverages, the 1001 Flavours Brunch at Ewaan, Palace Downtown is one to consider.
Just driving into Palace Downtown is a visual treat with its rows of palm trees and the much Instagrammed water feature at the front courtyard. Ewaan restaurant is located on the lower ground level, and the expansive interiors are tastefully decorated with Arabesque accents and floor to ceiling glass windows that take full advantage of the in-flood of natural light and the stunning views of the pool and Burj Khalifa.
I was brunching with two of my favorite girls, so ofcourse we got click-happy!
It’s been yet another hectic week, and I am sooo… looking forward to the weekend! I want to stay in, slap on a face mask (probably play with the putty-like Lush Jelly Masks you might have seen on my Instagram feed), oil my hair (do read up on my hair oiling challenge) and Binge Race on Netflix!
What is Binge Racing (or ‘Binge Watching’ you ask? Yes, its a real thing! It refers to the ability (or rather, addiction) to speed though an entire show season within 24 hours of its release.
According to Netflix statistics, 8.4 million of the world population are Binge Racers!
Hooray for yet another long weekend! What does an ideal weekend mean to you? This is exactly what Wkend Magazine by Khaleej Times asked me 🙂 Do look up my little write-up. Happy Long Weekend peeps!
