Meydan Beach | Dubai

Meydan Beach | DubaiLike0

Last weekend, we spent the day at The Meydan Beach in JBR, Dubai. A very overdue visit, given our travel schedule, it is almost impossible to keep up! Having flown back in on a Saturday morning at 6am, it was obvious that sleep was not on the agenda, what was on the plan however was a day out in the sun {in the name of research even if it was 40 degrees}, A bet was made that swimming in Dubai in the summer heat would be incredibly uncomfortable and unbearable, we were here to prove that wrong…if you go to the right places of-course!

There are many adjectives one can only use in a sentence, just words. So here goes… Luxury, peaceful, chill out music, great food, great ambiance {It was quiet, personal, relaxing, classy}, selective people, simple, blissful, dreamy. The Meydan Beach in Dubai is the place to be!

{Location, Location, Location} JBR walk, (It used to be the Dubai Properties HQ)

{Parking} Plenty of – You park inside the property

{Entrance} As you walk in, a hostess greets you and takes you to the reception. You then are asked what sort of guest category you fall into… Hotel guest, membership guest, walk in guest… and do the needful. At a price of AED 495 per person on a weekend, we were given AED 250 F&B credit to be used at Infinity Pool Bar as well. Towels are provided by the club of-course.

{Ambiance} We had a beautiful experience, there were not many people, just the right number, we had Cafe del Mar music being played in the background, sunbeds in the water, infinity pool that was very well cooled, we did not feel the intensity of the heat, the service was fast with our cocktails, clearly the place kept its image with the selective crowd. The

{Food} The infinity bar is closed during the summer, they have moved it indoor, which made more sense. We ordered the calamari and prawn, the mini burgers, and the Gruyere club sandwich. For deserts we opted for the ravioli pineapple which is mouth watering as I am actually writing this! They also have a Mediterranean restaurant facing the infinity pool with a bar. Have Mocktails by the pool, they have a great selection!

{Spa} We took the 15 minute spa pre-sun SPF application massage and the 15 minutes after sun gel application massage. A perfect start and end to our day, although, a small warning, it was incredibly hard to focus on the road on our way back after that last massage! Sleep was in order! In Ramadan, they have weekly offers on different spa treatments.

{Family friendly} They have a kids pool and a kids corner inside the club with a babysitter on site.

{Facilities} Infinity pool with sun loungers in the water, the beach, gym facing the pool and beach, salon for ladies by Fadi Chedid, steam room, beach bar  ( Cafe Del Mar), outdoor infinity jacuzzi, kids room, kids pool.

{Service} Very attentive, personal, especially loved the icy water towels being passed around and face spraying with Evian water.

Overall, it was a beautiful, relaxing experience with great staff who is willing to go that extra mile to make you happy and comfortable and a great place to unwind and get away from the busy week and crowd that you face everywhere, everyday. It still amazes us what a beautiful city Dubai is and how you can find serenity in every corner, regardless of how busy the country is!

I win the bet!

  • 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?
