Saadiyat Beach Club – Abu DhabiLike0

It’s funny how in most countries, to get out of the fast pace, crazy, loud buzzing sound of the city, you leave the capital. In the UAE, it’s the opposite. We wanted a weekend with family and friends away from the over crowded beaches, restaurants and malls, so we drove up to  the capital and booked a brunch at Saadiyat Beach Club in Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi.

The Safina Friday Brunch has a vibrant open kitchen is the heart of the restaurant, where you can peek at the expert chefs creating a feast like no other! From delicious breakfast favourites, mouth-watering BBQ grills,live cooking and carving stations (like the pasta station) through to fabulously fresh seafood, a gourmet cheese bar and a dessert station to satisfy even the sweetest tooth. In addition to the delicious food on offer, Safina boasts several live cocktail bars serving up an exceptional selection of signature cocktails, bubbly, grape and soft beverages.

Brunch lasted a good 3 hours. Honestly, if the UAE keeps up with this weather, it could almost be the perfect place in the world to live in. (I said almost) It was too cold to swim, but we walked to the beach and laid there for an hour or so. It was what we needed. Quiet time with some friends and family.

Price: The Safina brunch is served Friday 12pm – 4pm at Safina, Saadiyat Beach Club, and is priced at AED 275 per person including free flowing soft beverages, AED 375 per person including bubbly, AED 475 per person including French bubbly and AED 999 per person including Dom Perignon. Children of all ages are welcome and will enjoy some activities at the kids’ entertainment area. . Diners can also enjoy the full Saadiyat Beach Club facilities with access to the beach and pool for an extra AED 215 (additional to the brunch package).

Location: Located in Saadiyat Beach Club, Safina is open for lunch from 12:00pm to 3:00pm Saturday to Thursday; brunch from 12:00pm to 4:00pm Friday only and dinner from 6:00PM to 10:00PM Saturday to Wednesday and from 6:00pm to 11:00pm on Thursday and Friday.

  • This month, I asked the universe to help me in the practice of ‘letting go gracefully’ and I turned towards my Ashtanga practice. It has been more consistent than I can ever remember and I thank my teacher for navigating me. 
My mat has always been my private mirror ...Showing me my strength and weaknesses and my ability to push through when I’m stuck. It has me flirting with patience and, hope that one day, I might acquire it. It has been helping me shift my perspective and release the ‘need to control everything’ side of me... but still keep the organized side of me. 
Letting go is part of my healing process, whether it’s a posture that I need to fall into or catching my breath... because healing, is my responsibility... and no one else’s. 
These series of photos reminds of me a moment of achievement. The moment I’ve always wanted to sail in the Arctic dream a year ago, turned into a reality.
  • I love how so many of you played the exercise on my instastory. Wether it’s real or not, it’s nice to get to know a little more about you. 
I found love, success, happiness. Then found power, money, experience 🤣 
Did you also manage to find more words?
  • The bravest thing I’ve ever done was be a mother and learning to deal with fears I never knew existed... most of all, when I see her, I see the evidence of how strong I can be, and I remind myself: You’ve got this. 💫
  • The midnight sun is slowly making its way into the arctic. One of the world’s greatest phenomenon. Where the sun never completely sets and is visible day and night. Have you ever seen it?
I struggle to find the words to describe this feeling, because no words are strong enough. This was taken a little past midnight while sailing in the arctic on our @travelwithtjd - We are launching more TJD trips like those for you to join and experience it together. Follow @travelwithtjd to find out more on how you can join ❤️
  • I get asked constantly for advice on the best resorts in the Maldives that is children friendly. For me, it’s not only about the facilities but also the trust that’s built with the staff and the program they have for kids each day. Chloe loved it here, made new friends and cried when we left. That’s why I find it easy to always return to Joali. 
What’s your favorite island in Maldives?
  • Italy: A series of few images I took years back when I visited Florence. I remember the highlights of my trip: The gorgeous @fsflorence - Cinque Terre - A moment where I felt I lost all my inspiration - The magical sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo. 
What are your favorite things to do in Florence?
  • Throwback to almost 3 years ago. A friend asked for my recommendation for Bali and it brought up some memories. So found this picture. It’s one of my favorite places in Uluwatu and one of my favorite summer! Happy Sunday 🐰
  • The island’s Manta Tree house, designed by one and only Porky Hefer. It’s 5 meters in the air and a wingspan of almost 15m. The 50m tail of the manta is a suspended walkway leading up to body which seats up to 10 people! One of the many art pieces in @joalimaldives - I’ve never seen anything quite like it!!!
  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:
“If I want it, I can attract it” Abraham Hicks
  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • 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! ❤️
