Review: At.Mosphere Dubai High Tea (world’s highest afternoon tea)

February 20, 2017

Being a Londoner now, I’ve grown to love a little afternoon tea. I usually don’t try it in any other country but since At.mosphere at Burj Khalifa holds the record of the world’s highest afternoon tea, I had it on my foodie bucket list to do a At.Mosphere Dubai High Tea Review! Before going, we knew the view wasn’t going to disappoint but the question was, is the high tea (literally) worth the high price?

Review: Sofitel Hotel Dubai

February 14, 2017

Sofitel Jumeirah Beach Hotel Review

Last year my friend and I visited Dubai during ramadan as a stop over on our way to Asia. Dubai during ramadan is insanely quiet but on the positive side, prices on hotels are majorly reduced. We managed to book Sofitel on Jumeira Beach for an amazing £60 per night! That’s a very good deal for Sofitel which usually starts from £200 per night. The location of Sofitel Jumeira Beach is ideal as its within walking distance to the marina and a short taxi ride away from the malls. Continue Reading →

Le Meridien Munich Hotel Review

January 17, 2017

LE MERIDIEN MUNICH HOTEL REVIEW 

Back in November, I stayed at Le Meridien Munich for one night for a quick weekend break. Le Meridien’s location is very central and convenient. Coming out from the central station you can literally see Le Meridien across the street to your right and it’s about a minute walk to get to. The hotel is also very close to the Marienplatz which is where you’ll find Munich’s main attractions. Continue Reading →

Sofitel Hotel Lisbon Review

September 18, 2016

A while ago my mom and I visited Lisbon for a short weekend trip. It’s amazing how the place you stay in can make or break your trip. In this case, Sofitel Lisbon completely made our holiday. We fell in love with the city and also with the hotel.

First of all – location, location, location. The hotel is well placed right in the city centre on Avenida da Liberdade. It is a prime shopping district and is very close to the Barrio Alto and most major Lisbon attractions. We didn’t have to use public transport much at all. The front desk staff were so lovely, knowledgable and helpful from the very moment we walked in until the moment we left. Continue Reading →

Marrakech Do’s and Don’ts – Top Tips When Visiting

September 9, 2016

Marrakech had been on my bucket list for such a long time and I finally got to visit back in May this year.
It is such a beautiful city, full of warm and welcoming people. Having done a bit of reading online I found that a lot of people had concerns about the safety of Marrakech before traveling.

Those that visit Morocco thinking its like any other European country will be in for a culture shock. Familiarise yourself with where you’re going so that you know what to expect and you’ll be absolutely fine. As always, travel with an open mind.

Encore Hotel Las Vegas Review

July 10, 2016

A year after my solo trip to the US, I’m still reminiscing about my stay at Encore in Vegas during Labour Day weekend. I associate this hotel with one of the best times of my life and I wasn’t ready to leave after just 3 days.
Maybe it was because I had been staying at a hostel in New York for almost a week (for the first time in my life).
Maybe it was because they took such good care of me while I was traveling alone.
May I remind you this is where prince Harry had his infamous Vegas pictures taken.
Whatever the reason, Encore is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Why?  Continue Reading →

The Jemaa el Fna Marrakech Guide – Where To Eat

May 2, 2016

I finally got to visit Marrakech! My mom and I had been eyeing it out for a very long time and we booked our tickets in the end. On our first day we had a very vague itinerary. We arrived at 10AM and had a full day to ourselves. Having woken up 3.30AM to catch our flight from Stansted we needed some time to freshen up and ended up relaxing for a few hours at our hotel before heading out to the main square Jeema El Fna. This is one of the biggest hotspots in Marrakech, not only for tourists but also for the locals. Its a buzzing market place with a lot of character, colour, entertainment, live music and food. The oldest mosque in Marrakech and the biggest souk can also be found in this square. Picture something out of Aladdin – where else do you need to be?
