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!

  • Two years ago today, I sailed in the arctic for the first time, I found a place where the chaos inside me was understood and my heart felt at home. 
The Arctic taught me so much... I learned to love every single weakness and strength I have in me, because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... but most of all the possibility of having all my dreams come true, that makes my life so beautiful and I cannot wait to go back ♥️ #TravelwithTJD

  • I left my heart in Scandinavia 💫
First thing I’ll do when @emirates resumes, and not one day later... fly back in the Arctic. 
Possibly Iceland, rent a van and drive for 1 week, waking up under the Arctic skies to a different landscape everyday... I visualize every moment of it and how I would feel. 
I miss nature and thrive when I’m surrounded by it.... then fly into Finland for another week and drive through into Swedish wilderness, waking up in a cabin by the lake, without any sense of time... doing exactly what I want to do, simply because it makes me happy... Going swimming, taking long walks and clearing my mind. 
It’s not long now till the borders open up again, I’m always hopeful. When was the last time you’ve traveled solo? And where are you dreaming of? Also, follow along @travelwithtjd - it would mean a lot to me if you could support our beautiful small business, which is how passion turned into a reality. 🤗
  • 35 years living in Dubai. I’ve watch the city grow from a slow-pace movement to one of the fastest cities in the world and back to slow. It’s soo eerie to witness so much change in a lifetime. I first landed in Dubai with my family the year @emirates first started operating. Yet, as the city slowly starts to open up, I can’t help but feel grateful. Mostly for the determination and efforts the country has done to keep those like myself, a guest in their home, safe. It’s been a long journey and I’m hopeful for the future. Thank you @mydubai
  • Legend says: There is an intangible string of fate that binds souls destined to be together. Those connected are bound no matter of time, place or circumstance.
The red string of fate is derived from an ancient East Asian belief. According to this myth, the Gods tie a red string around the ankles of all those that are destined to meet each other or help each other in a certain way.
No matter how near or far you are from them, the thread remains. There will be times when mentally or physically, you feel distant from those people, but that doesn’t affect the thread that binds you together. I’ve always believed and loved this tale... and thought it was a great time to remember it. 
Do you believe in legends and tales? 💫
  • Im finally slowly starting to feel like myself again, it’s been challenging and a battle adapting to the new... I read something I posted once before and felt like reading it over and over again, the more I read it, the more I started to remember who I was, who I am...and, with this new moon, I feel it’s my chance to start over again, finally. Some clarity. Some strength. 
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... unforced bonds. 💫
What about you? How are You!?
  • Maybe you say that you are in touch with reality and “She is not” 
But maybe, instead say, “Her reality is so different from ours that she can't explain hers to us, and we can't explain ours to her”

Reality differs from person to person... My reality is liberating and filled with love... I’m going to remind myself to always be brave enough to keep holding on to it 💫 ♥️
  • Finland... I dream of you in colors... only the blind can feel...💫
  • Some truth: 
I created a life I always dreamed of, and not what others expect of me. 
I knew what I wanted from the very start and I didn’t let anything stand in my way. 
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. 
I’ve always known what I wanted out of my life, and I’m still on my journey. 
So, how am I coping with our @travelwithtjd business during this pandemic? 
I’ve pushed away those who told me “ You are a dreamer for thinking it will end soon” -  because I believe it will. 
I’ve dropped those who laughed when I said “we will fly the skies once again, sooner than we think”. Because I’m a free spirit.
I’ve blocked those who have repeatedly given me their advice that I should ‘find a new hobby or create a new business’. Because, with this lockdown or not, I’ve been creating my own reality, with my passion and love for yoga, traveling, photography, reading and my persistence on building an empire out of @travelwithtjd - I’ve been (and still) doing exactly what I’ve always loved. 
We are strong resilient human beings. 
I’ve fallen in love with being alive a very long time ago. And I for one, will always stay hopeful and I know that in the end, everything always works out. Because it always, always does.

  • This is for those who give everything they’ve got to make their lives as beautiful as their dreams... and for the friends who stick... for what’s real and what's not...
You will find them in the little things... and little moments. Now more than ever. 
That's when you know 💫 
Happy Palm Sunday 🙂
  • Woke up this morning feeling a sudden disconnection.
There’s power in disconnection.
When you separate yourself from the world for a while, you’ll figure out what’s feeding ur soul, what’s entertaining ur ego, what’s nothing but a distraction... and then you find exactly where your alignment is.
  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
  • Someone said to me “The strong woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, outings and material things. Always choose her over everything!” And so, I did. 💫
