DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Jumeirah Beach

 

If you are in Dubai for vacation, you would probably be familiar with the famous and fabulous JBR strip. I have to admit, as a UAE resident in Dubai, I have a love/hate relationship with JBR. It’s become so beautiful, the beach, the restaurants, the activities and the walk. But on the weekends, it’s almost close to impossible to get in! But when DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Jumeirah Beach launched their brunch at The Kitchen Table and had a great deal, we had to nab it and use the facilities!

Price 299dhs P/Person without alcohol and FULL access to beach/pool/facilities – 379dhs with Alcohol

Time 12pm to 4pm

Location It’s the last hotel on the JBR strip. Makes it perfect when you decide to leave avoiding the traffic that starts to build up at 4pm.

Dress Code Come as you are

Ambiance It’s a place where you just want to enjoy the good weather, great food, subtle early morning music, family get together with the kids and go swimming. Sporty Chic! You have a kids area with fantastic ladies who will go to great lengths to entertain the kids.

Food It’s not your typical massive over indulge brunch. Mostly healthy options and sea food salads, fresh lobster and shrimps, Arabic station, two different meat and 1 fish for main, gluten free is available, kids meals, shawarma and light desert section.

Overall The great thing about that day was that it was a very relaxed brunch. That’s how it should be really. Nothing over the top, a very cozy atmosphere. Make sure you get there early to grab the outside tables by the pool.

**We are giving away 2 vouchers  for 2 people (Each voucher) All you have to do is share this post and tell us what’s the first thing you look for when you go for brunch at a hotel.**

    As a writer, I love to give an unbiased view about most issues. I have actually been to the Doubletree Hilton Friday brunch at Gastro Kitchen and I have to say, as a frequent visitor, this is definitely the best value for money in all of Dubai. The food is abundant, the atmosphere is relaxed and most of all, after you have indulged on food and drinks, you get free access to the lovely pool which has a bar . All in all, great value for money.
    Notes to point out- Live cooking station, amazing deserts, free flowing drinks!!!! Pool bar- amazing!

    The salad bar! I like to see how creative the chef can be with new mixes of fresh salads. The dessert bar comes a close 2nd.

  • It’s only February and I’ve already started thinking about planning my summer trips! Are you a last minute kind of person or do you plan months in advance like me? 😊
  • How far would you risk to get to where you want to go? 
KYOTO, JAPAN: Each of the famous torii shrine gates has been donated by an individual or a Japanese business in the hope of receiving good luck and fortune. The name of the donor is inscribed in black ink on the back of each gate.
  • Today I met someone who didn’t know her self worth and it left me with a heavy heart. She admitted she wished for a lot of things and dreamed of accomplishing all her NY resolutions. 
It reminded me of a story I read how we tend to create a big gap between expectations and reality and we cannot see it. How young women daydream for a perfect life and compare themselves with stuff such as ‘body goals’ or ‘couple goals’ rather be known for their accomplishments and how smart one can be. 
It made me realize how much we always have to remember to be kind to ourselves and practice love. It’s an easy thing to ‘be yourself’ but quite another thing to know who you truly are. 
I hope you stop counting your mistakes and stop torturing yourself with regret. I hope you love so strong, where you will always find the courage to say the things you wanted to say. I hope you never ever have to compare yourself to anyone but keep growing into the strong, smart and beautiful woman you are. 💫
  • This isn’t the ‘perfect instagram picture’ but I was never one to post for the number of ‘likes’.
Every picture I post on instagram is because it has a story behind it, and... an unforgettable memory. I didn’t even realize @dennisstever was taking a photo of me, and, to be honest, I think it might have been a fluke, because, if you were on that zodiac with us, you would understand how maintaining our balance was our first priority, otherwise it would have been be a dip in the freezing arctic waters. 
We anchored our sailboat in the middle of nowhere, they call it the arctic wilderness, miles away from tromso’s port. We took the zodiac to reach an uninhabited island and all I could remember, was the water level at my boots, and I was holding on to 3 camera bags and equipments and remember asking Dennis to repeatedly say “If MICHELLE falls off, save her cameras first” 😂
I’ve asked him so many times to acknowledge the fact that I’ve given him full permission to save my equipment first before anything else, and it just makes me laugh so hard on how far I am willing to go to save my gear. 
This photo reminds me of life. The adrenaline rush, the subzero temperature winds at the break of dawn, the unknown, the love, the risks we take, the crazy decisions we make in life and for our passion, in my case, it’s my love for photography. 
Can’t wait to return in two weeks on a @travelwithtjd 💫
  • It wasn’t so long ago when I made this dream a reality. Over a year ago, I made it to Harads in Sweden while driving, crossing the borders from Finland. One of the most incredible experiences of my life. This is the UFO at Tree Hotel. What you don’t see, is the incredible views of the Lule River valley and miles and miles of unspoiled forest lands. ❤️
  • Felt on top of the world...
Can you guess where in Portugal this was taken 2 years ago?
  • A week ago, I was walking barefoot on an island 🌴... Today, I’m recovering from the flu in bed... and in a couple of days I’ll be back to winter mode ❄️. How is your weekend looking so far? 😊
  • Truth: A lot of you question how I have things figured out... it’s far from the truth. I promise. 
The truth is, I take risks in the things I believe in, personally and my business life... and learned not to try and overthink when making the decision, because I remind myself how hard I worked for my career and passion to come together. 
I take risks not because I’m brave, but because I really believe that it could be SO good when it works out, or when a project I pitched for succeeds... I look back and realize how far I have come and remember thinking that things were such a mess I would never recover. 
I have never led an ‘ordinary life’ nor a life that would suit everyone maybe...but that is the only life I love despite the sleepless nights working and my heart racing all the time. “That’s the sleepless life of an entrepreneur” they say. 
I am determined to be the best of what I only believe I can be, even when I may lack in other things or even when I fall... But my life is about breaking my own limits and not let the outside noise affect my judgments. That’s how I make it through... 💕
  • Here is a little bit on how this picture was taken... As drones are strictly not allowed @sixsenseslaamu - I had to find a way to climb on the roof patio and hook my camera  on a balcony pole so it doesn’t get blown away or fall right into the pool. 
When I finally thought I had the settings set on and the camera hooked properly, I ran down the stairs, out the backdoor, into the front door of the pool deck and sat there with my remote control. The sun’s light has increased slightly then and my settings were all wrong again 🤦🏼‍♀️, if you were my Neighbour, you would see a crazy lady, with her hat flying away, running up and down the roof top. 
Luckily, my remote’s connection to my camera and the light was finally set and I took the shot. Then I just sat there. Watching the sky turning from pink, to orange to clear blue. 
Only then, I realized my camera was still hanging ever so lightly... so, pulled myself together and rushed back on the rooftop. 😊 That’s the story 🌴
  • I worked out what would make me happy, and I worked out what I wanted to do, and I trained myself to do the job that would make those two things happen. ‘You make it sound so simple...’ Everyone said 
It is simple...The thing is, it's also a lot of hard work. And people don't want to put in a lot of work. But I didn't get here simply by wishing for it.
  • The view from my beautiful water villa @sixsenseslaamu 🌊 Happy Sunday everyone!
  • Welcome to the Maldivian Jungle 🌊🌴Escaped for a long weekend to dive, tan, eat and learn all about the sustainability projects together with @sixsenseslaamu and @travel4apurpose - this has to be one of the most beautiful beach front villa I’ve seen. Are you a water villa or beach villa lover?
