10 Cool Things to Do in Dubai This SeasonLike1

1. Experience Aqua Park in Atlantis with Royal Caribbean UK

One of the greatest experiences while in Dubai is Aqua Park in Atlantis. Reason is simple, I guarantee laughter like no other to a point where your stomach cramps! The Aqua Park in Atlantis was in collaboration with Royal Caribbean UK, the all inclusive cruise, every cruise you book to Dubai with them, you can a chance to pick an excursion that is included in the package and we picked Aqua Park and loved every minute of it! Make sure you go early! As I live in Dubai, I was able to drive straight to Atlantis but if you’re coming from a Royal Caribbean ship, you will have been dropped off at cruise terminal Mina Rashid, DP World Cruise Terminals, from where you will be picked up for any of the available excursions.

2. Visit the Dubai Opera

The Dubai Opera programme is available to view online and tickets to The Pearl Fishers, The Barber of Seville, Opera Without Words, Coppélia, Giselle, Postcards from Vienna, Mozart Gala, Impossible, José Carreras, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, Sara Baras, Anoushka Shankar, Béjart Ballet Lausanne, The Nutcracker on Ice and Slava’s Snowshow can be purchased online.

6. Miss Lily’s Jamaican Restaurant

Good luck getting a table reservation there! The rumors were true! It took us a month and a half to get a table! But oh was it so worth the wait! You may never want to leave! Located in the Sheraton Grand hotel and serving the best Jamaican & Caribbean food in the city. The jerk chicken reminded me of the month we spent in Jamaica back in 2009.

7. Dine in Couqley

A new French restaurant called Couqley has hit the Dubai scenes pretty strong! The Merry Poppins of french cuisines (which are difficult to find in Dubai). A delicious french bistro from the heart of Beirut! It’s located in Cluster A in JLT, Laguna Tower.

8. Eat in Mythos Kouzina & Grill 

The only thing that is missing here is the breaking of traditional plates on the floor, perhaps one day but for now, Mythos Kouzina & Grill has been the place to go to for authentic Greek food! Have a glass of wine, order the spicy feta cheese dip and enjoy the music that will for a long second, take you back to Greece!

9. Brunch at La Brasserie 2.0

They call it brunching to the next level. One of the richest brunches you will find. Over 10 live cooking stations, fresh seafood and an after party from 5-8pm! You will love the selection of desserts, the wine bar ‘buffet style’ (very cool) and the beautiful atmosphere outdoor (when weather permits) otherwise you can sit indoor! Great for family & friends! Grab your kids, your friends and start your day at 1:30 pm and enjoy one of the best live bands we’ve heard in a long time!

10. The Jetty Lounge

The season is ON! An old time favorite and always on our list! The Jetty Lounge at The One & Only Royal Mirage in Dubai is a wonderful place for sundowners! You might keep coming back for the olives, the drinks or the Spanish tapas. Whatever it may be, you will be back here over and over again.

  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours.

  • 6am wake up call 🇲🇺 @Constancehotels  #myconstancemoment
  • Good morning! It’s actually raining today but, here is the beautiful day I checked into @constancehotels Prince Maurice. I tried to aim for a grand entrance here 😊 Have a beautiful day everyone!
  • Sailed across the islands until we reached the Ile aux Phare built in 1864 and had to see how it looked from above!!
  • She never wants to leave she says, and asks me every day how much longer are we staying in Mauritius @shangrilamauritius ☀️
I totally get it - We even had chocolate wrap massages together and she slept through it all! 😂
  • I have to be honest, I haven’t stepped out of the hotel unless it’s to different islands by boat (very unlike me).
I feel like I have everything I need right now exactly where I am. It’s so strange because I still wake up every morning at 5:30!! Mauritius has so much to offer on land but on this specific trip, all I ever plan to do is be back at sea... and that’s ok!!(And eat all the pineapples in the world). This was taken at sunrise as I saw fishermen boats pass the island when everyone was asleep.
