Revier Hotel: Swiss-style Hotel in Dubai

Did you know that you can experience Swiss hospitality in the heart of Dubai?

We were delighted to learn about Revier Hotel. The hotel brand curated in Switzerland recently opened its doors in Business Bay. We felt it would be a unique staycation venue in the UAE, especially now that the weather is getting warmer. So we booked a one-night stay!

Dubai Frame: Visiting the World's Largest Frame

We finally visited Dubai Frame last month! 

It took us four years to set foot inside "The World's Largest Picture Frame". We thought adoring the iconic structure from the outside is enough until my parents came over for a vacation and told us that they want to see it up close.

Staycation and SBG Weekend Griller at Swissotel Al Ghurair

Located in the old district of a dazzling city is a gem of a hotel that offers comfort, convenience, and sweeping views of both old and new structures. With Union Metro Station around the corner and the Dubai Creek only a stone's throw, Swissotel Al Ghurair is considered one of Deira's best hotel accommodations for travelers. 

From a Dubai resident's point of view, I see Swissotel Al Ghurair as an ideal spot for special dinners and events for several years. And just recently, I realized how suitable it is for staycations as well!

Date Night at Fish Beach Taverna

While having a relaxing daycation in Mina Seyahi last week, Ed and I stumbled across a lovely restaurant by the sea. As far as I can remember, I've seen photos of it on Instagram last year, but I never really paid attention as we were too focused on traveling overseas. Little did I know, it is a gem that is definitely worth a visit! 

I'm talking about Fish Beach Taverna!

O'Learys Home-Run Brunch: American Friday Brunch with Free Pool Access

It has been a while since I had a Friday off. Working on a weekend isn't that bad, but then I miss going to Friday Brunches! You know how brunches are here in the UAE; it's a pretty huge deal! So when I finally got my long-awaited weekend break, Ed and I went to O'Learys in Hilton Dubai Creek for the Home-Run Friday Brunch.

Decadence Breakfast in Atmosphere Burj Khalifa

And just like that, I turned 38! :)

I'm not a fan of throwing big birthday parties, hence turning a year older during the time of social distancing didn't bother me. But yes, I must admit, I was sad that I couldn't go home to see my parents or at least travel to a new place just like how I spent my birthdays before.

Stuck in Dubai with a full 9-hour shift to render, I searched for a good place to have my birthday breakfast. My work starts at 11:30 AM, so my options are limited as most cafes only open at 10. Then, I saw that Atmosphere in Burj Khalifa has a breakfast voucher on The Entertainer app, and the restaurant opens at 7 AM! Hmmm! Early breakfast at the world's highest restaurant sounded brilliant. And to think it's Buy 1 Get 1 Free... splendid!
