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!

  2. Thomas says:

    Live cooking stations for anything freshly made in front of me. Just noticed your picture of the juice counter (freshly made).

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

  7. molly says:

    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.

  8. eddy bosmans says:

    i love the happiness and warmth of the personal.

  • Good morning from Rovaniemi and from an island hotel in Lapland! I’m back in Finland and this time took my small family and surprised Chloè for Christmas to visit Santa!! We spent 3 nights here and it was everything she dreamed of! Most importantly, she still believes in magic, which is so important for kids, especially at her age to hold on to! 
No matter how old we are...We always need to believe in Magic, don’t we? 💫🎄
  • Moments before my drone lost signal... still worth every minute of it. 
We stayed two nights here on our @travelwithtjd and there is a reason why we keep coming back. One of the greatest hospitality, boutique lodging and deep into the wilderness ♥️ Make sure you follow @travelwithtjd and join our next adventure travel movement ♥️
  • It isn’t always easy for me to get those moments shots. Most of the times, I take a million pictures before getting to the right one. If you flip through them, you can get an idea on how I really looked like before looking like this photo here. Just almost like I have it all together. 
Don’t forget @rsainsuranceuae is still running a competition to give a lucky winner Dhs 20,000 for your dream vacation anywhere in the world! All you have to do is upload your photo fail and #rsatravelphotofails to your image and you could win your dream vacation 😊
  • Initially, I wanted to keep this picture for Christmas... but I’m not the most patient person. 
I had asked @dennisstever to help me out with an image I had in my mind. 
After couple of attempted shots, it wasn’t working out the way I imagined it would.
So we just gave up. 
I remember walking deeper in the forest then heard him scream from far: “Michelle, don’t move!” I paused and stood still. 
And he took the shot. 
What you can’t see, is that right behind me was a 6 meter drop to the frozen white lake, snow falling heavily and my heart beating a million beats per second and I was freezing!
I didn’t want to move, breathe or leave. The view from here was incredible. I tossed my baloon up in the air, and waited for it to slowly fall back to me. 
Travel and photography, always an incredible beautiful surprise and adventure. 
Thank you @dennisstever for the photo and for allowing me to put my camera down in subzero temperatures... even for a little while 💫
  • On the other side, is the best version of yourself you could possibly be. Now close your eyes and let go of everything else... only then will you understand 💫
  • I’m not incomplete. I've learnt to fill my own inner void; But I need to keep being inspired and deeply moved to continue forward. 
Our trips are a reflection of who we are. 
The people on TJD trips are a reflection on the energy we attract. Falling in love with their souls, their strength and the small gestures they do to make you feel so important in their lives. And I’ve felt it. 
When I leave a place like Finland, where I find magic, freedom and peace... my strength is put to test, my balance and my willingness to endure. Because, as someone who is always searching for balance, I find it there. Breaking my own limits, outgrowing myself to live the best way I possibly can, and not the life others expect of me. 💫❄️ #TravelwithTJD @ourfinland

It’s no secret that I, like almost everyone else, have to take a couple of extra (a thousand) shots before getting the right one. But the most difficult ones to take, are the ones with Chloè! 
I cannot get her to stay still!! This was taken 2 years ago unedited. You can see I was desperately trying to keep her still for the shot until she caved in! 
I’m posting this because I’m happy to announce my partnership with @rsainsuranceuae with our second season campaign after the success of the first award winning campaign: ‘The Unluckiest Traveler’ 
Today we launch #rsatravelphotofails - We want you to upload your worst travel photo fail, (because not everyone gets that perfect travel photo) and the winner will get a chance to win their dream vacation!!
Step 1: Upload your worst photo image
Step 2: Tag #rsatravelphotofails 
And stay tuned to see if you won your dream trip worth 20,000 Dhs!!
  • I have so much respect for the emotionally brave. The ones who put in the emotional work and take the real risks of being vulnerable and removing masks. It's easy to make chitchat, but it's hard to speak about what's really under the surface. It's easy to joke, but difficult to cry. It's easy to numb, but hard to feel. That’s what keeps me going with @travelwithtjd and the people I meet along the way. That’s who they are and I love them for it. My love to @dennisstever for taking this photo of me, even when we both knew the ice on the lake was super thin but we braved our way through it. 😊 #TravelwithTJD
  • I can’t find words to describe how I feel being back here in Finland. It’s no secret how much I love this place and how many times I keep coming back. We kicked off our @travelwithtjd trips starting right here and making new friends and sharing some great moments ♥️
  • If you think you’re having a bad day, just remember, there are people that have their ex’s name tattooed on their body... Happy Wednesday! ♥️🤷🏼‍♀️
  • Do you often have picnics?? I found this picnic basket in a store last weekend and, although I don’t do a lot of picnics in Dubai, I bought it, and decided to use it for this photo shoot and get inspired by Italy with the @theitalianwayuae project that I’m so happy to be part of once again this season! Where is your favorite place for picnics??#theitalianway
  • A beautiful day in Dubai with a little too much ice cream! I spent my last weekend with friends & family on the beach before flying back to one of my favorite place on earth to witness the polar nights!! Can you guess where I’m flying back to?
