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!

  • Home at Beit Douma, this is how a traditional restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home looks like from the inside. Douma is one of the best-preserved villages in Lebanon, lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters.  The name in Phoenician means “calm and rest”, in Greek it means “house”. 🇱🇧 #Home
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything... 💫
  • Will probably delete this later but just couldn’t NOT post this video! I’ve always dreamed raising a golden retriever since I was a little girl, and in February, it became a reality. This was Charlie at 3 months and slide over the photo number 2, today at 8 months. 2 more weeks and I’ll be back with him!!! Share your advices on raising a Golden ❤️ I would love to hear your experiences.
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry 💕
  • Bird’s eye view from @joalimaldives 
I can never get bored of this view! 😍
  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’ and it’s no longer forcing things... it’s been a while since I looked back at some memories in S.E Asia, It taught me so much, but also, it’s a chapter of my life that I feel I’ve closed a long time ago.
  • Passion and inspiration are so very powerful and can easily be intimidating and out of reach sometimes. 
I haven’t been able to pick up my camera yet... Which is odd because, my camera is my source of ‘connection’ to almost everything. 
Sometimes you’re just not ready... And I’m not going to push myself. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊
  • Once upon a time in Kenya 🇰🇪- I’m trying really hard remembering their names, but all that comes to mind is Sophie, I’m sure one of them is called Sophie... Not sure why? Don’t you think? 😊 
Have an incredible weekend everyone 💕
  • Sunrise in Madeira Island. 
It’s been a while since I felt inspired to pick up my camera and go. Maybe it’s the fact that, despite my love for the long summers and flip flops, I’m ready for the unknown, the Scandinavian winters, the daring adventures & new beginnings. 
I’m ready for the sleepless nights under the northern lights and the exceptional early pink sunrises. Someone special told me to learn to be where my feet is... to be present where I am at the moment... Possibly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time, but, this caption refutes it. 😊 I’ll try again tomorrow 💕
  • Not long before the grand re-opening of @gili.lankanfushi in Maldives. The island is close to my heart and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening on the 1st of December 🏖
  • At an altitude of 1800 meters... Ixsir winery in Lebanon is one of the popular winery in the country. Their Winery was named by CNN as one of the greenest building in the world, and lately won the international A+ Award. 🇱🇧
  • Looking back at some photos this morning. This was taken 3 years ago in Seychelles at @fsseychelles - Definitely one of the best views I’ve seen during my travels.
