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.

  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
  • It’s been a challenging week and the year is passing way too quick!! I’ve already started planning my summer vacation which I’m so ready for and setting new adventures for winter journeys in the arctic on @travelwithtjd - But, Portugal is always a returning choice for me this summer, especially Madeira Island. 
What are your summer plans?
  • I was looking back at some of the memories I’ve made in the past. Everyone say don’t look back... but I always do and smile. 
I look back when we say goodbye at the airport, at old beautiful memories and it’s always beautiful to see what an incredible life I’ve built. Here is a memory of Kenya 3 years ago where I spent 2 nights at Giraffe Manor and woke up at the break of dawn, looking outside my window, and saw these beautiful creatures staring right back at me. 😊 Do you ever look back?
