What an amazing weekend! It started with a very smooth check in (literally less than 5min). Then the journey continued to my room located literally 20 steps away from the reception area. I have picked a very nice room with shared back yard and a partial view of the swimming pool area. Peaceful and green scenery - not the typical 5 star hotel in Dubai.
Since I had special food request related to allergies, I was personally contacted by the F&B manager who went the extra mile to meet my food expectations. Thank you, Mr. Ergun!
I must say Housekeeping is functioning very well since I was supplied with anything I requested within only a few minutes.
The hotel was semi-full so I was happy to find a nice shady spot nearby the sunny pool. Lucky me I had a direct access to the pool from my room - for extra laziness:)
In the evening I had a tour of all the food outlets at the hotel and I was nicely surprised to find about 10 restaurants located at the hotel - Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Filipino,Thai, Irish, Arabic, Indian and organic cuisines were some of the food options one could choose from. I also saw 3 separate swimming pool areas located within the hotel grounds which are spread at different locations.
The interior design of the hotel is extremely sophisticated and it definitely matches the expectations of a 5 star hotel design - abundant of comfortable sitting areas, small shops, cafes and a business centre.
I have even booked my next treatment at their amazing Natural Elements Spa ( I love this place!).
This hotel became my new favourite getaway-from-home-place.
