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!

    I love to check the seafood main courses. Love grilled fish.

    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.

  • How much time do you spend planning for a trip? I still can’t get over the beautiful sunsets I’ve been lucky to experience on the island. I’ve also written two blog posts on guides to Menorca and what to watch out for prior booking. 
I do usually spend a lot of time on research for my trips, months in advance and, for this specific trip, it was a little challenging finding a place to stay that matched what I was exactly looking for. 
The search engine that worked well for me was @wegoarabia - as for flights, I didn’t have too many options from Barcelona but it worked out well. I mixed it between hotel stay and private villa stay for my 10 nights. Booked a car and took it really easy at the end!
  • I’m aware that I posted this photo before, but... there are no rules here... the Arctic has quickly become my comfort zone. 
Our business and being an entrepreneur in today’s world on @travelwithtjd was featured in an incredible article on @entmagazineme (link in bio to read the full story) written by the incredible @thisisaby on how I started @tjdhospitality , my goals, my passion and dedication to what I truly believed in... and nothing stood in my way... It continues beautifully on the chapter how @dennisstever and I created our mini series to launch @travelwithtjd and the future... and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did. 
One day it will just click. You realize what's important and what isn't, you learn to care less about what other people think of you and care more about what you think of yourself. You realize how far you have come and remember thinking that things were in such a mess they'd never recover.. and then you smile. You smile because you are truest proud of yourself and the person you have fought to become. 
Never forget who has helped you in the past or who kept believing in you when you stopped. 💫
  • I’m not into small talk... so show me your soul. Let’s our minds connect, let’s us just be who we really are and say how it is... or, just say nothing at all.
  • A small town in Menorca, a 30 minute drive into this beautiful town. Long sandy beaches and little houses built around the sides of the bay overlooking the sea. I had to stop the car every minute and step out and appreciate the empty beaches and how incredibly happy I was deciding to visit this beautiful island despite taking a long time on my research! 
Thank you to @hertz.uae for always making it so easy to rent a car and for adding my skywards miles while booking with you 😊
  • One of the most beautiful beach strip in Menorca. I definitely love quiet beaches, and here tends to be crowded and popular, but it was still so comfortable and an exciting vibe to it.
  • There is a legend of Cova d’en Xoroi, a story of a pirate name Xoroi, who abandoned his ship, discovered this cave and found refuge here. 
Xoroi then abducted a woman from the village, fell in love and married her and had kids. 
One day, in winter, the island was covered with unexpected snow, and armed men found footprints into the cave and found the women with her 3 sons. 
Xoroi was surrounded and powerless and jumped into the water from the cliff, and his eldest son followed him and his wife returned to the village. 
What happened after that is a mystery...
  • What are your road trips tips!? For me, I always love keeping strawberries and blueberries & a playlist that has to include Ben Howard.
It’s been a crazy 2 weeks on the road, first in Finland with over 16 hours road trips and now in Menorca doing the same on a much smaller scale, exploring the island in our family van that we rented from @hertz.uae And earn Skywards Miles 😊
What are your smooth road trip tips?
  • Cala Galdana is definitely one of my favorite beaches. They told me that this tiny island of Menorca has more beaches that Ibiza and Mallorca put together. 
Do you have a favorite beach in Spain?
  • I’ve left Finland a week ago, flew directly to Spain from there and landed in this beautiful island of Menorca. The neighboring island of Mallorca and Ibiza. Decided to stay couple of days in @meliacalagaldana to get these views and visit the beaches to the south and then moved further North of the island into a private villa for the rest of my trip. Have you been to Menorca before?
  • Someone asked me if I find myself changing when I’m away in Scandinavia. The thought lingered... and I couldn’t put it in words properly. 
This has quickly become my comfort zone... Most of the times, my mind always control things and I always plan EVERYTHING ahead of time... it’s the organized side of me... but here, I feel my heart is upside down, and it leads the way, giving my mind a rest... almost like Shirshasana.
My passion for the unknown and peace takes reign and I start my story all over again, choosing which to keep and to let go of those that don’t serve me anymore. 
The stories of who I am is told through what I remind myself on how far I’ve come and that... it’s always ok not to have everything figured out. So...for now, here is what makes me happy and gives me answers. And so, here is where I’ll always come back to. 💫 #travelwithtjd
  • Would you sleep here?
Imagine this: Witnessing the midnight sun, where the sun never truly sets, from here. 
Waking up with the sound of birds, wind and the lake and nothing else. We’ve made the best summer experience on @travelwithtjd in our TJD Finland Summer Series and it’s available now to book!
  • We drove 6.5 hours North West of Helsinki into the coast. Right on the edge of the UNESCO world heritage area, in the land of the rising rocks. 
Facing me, is Sweden, 1 hour away by boat, the area here is mostly influenced by the Swedish. 
The summers in Finland is so different... another new meaning to magic and I’m so in love with the landscape.
We experienced delicious arctic cuisine and island hopping. Add it to your bucket list and travel with us on @travelwithtjd for summer days in Finland and watch the midnight sun right from your glass igloo.
