Diva in Dubai

By | 19:06 7 comments

I’ve only just come back from a glorious two week vacation in Dubai … I was only meant to go for a a few days and just ended up extending my trip each time.  For those of you who’re new to my blog; I’m a potpourri of cultures – and spent my childhood growing up in Dubai.  It’s been about 1.5 year since I’ve been back and about 8 years since my family moved from there – but it’s still ‘home’ for me.

Words cannot describe just how I felt about my holiday – and hence I’m just going to share a few photographs with you to take you through my journey :)


The very modern hotel room for the first 4 nights of the holiday.  Freaked NC out when I told her there was no separate shower ! She’d already made plans of kicking me out of the room for privacy during bath hours haha

The Burj Khalifa is truely a stunning tower and sight to gawk at.

Some of the views from outside Dubai Mall in the evening.



We went out to the Nassimi Beach which is a part of the Atlantis hotel and watched Cafe Del Mar perform live ! Spent a few hours at this super chilled out party and honestly I didn’t want to leave ! 

P2210018P2190016Went to this lovely cafe restaurant which overlooked the fountains outside Dubai Mall called Zahr El-Laymoun .. the food was to die for !

The coffee was served in the traditional way – loved the pot ! The juices were served in mini pitchers (that’s carrot juice in the photo below. !  And the shisha pipes were quite pretty and matched the colour theme of the entire restaurant.

The last few days I crashed over at my aunts place in the Palms Jumeriah.  That’s the view from out of my room window.  On the left side is the pool and the beach ! It felt great to be able to open the lounge sliding doors and walk straight out to the pool and within 5 feet you can get to the beach.

And before I forget – you must see some of the new friends I made whilst out there … can’t wait to see them again !

I met all these cool creatures over at the Dubai Aquarium ! It’s a must visit if you ever make a trip out there.  You even get the option of going snorkeling with the sharks ! or if you prefer to be safe – then you can take a ride on a glass bottom boat.

There you have it … my holiday snaps.  I have LOTS more … but they just involve lots of alcohol ! hahah
