Flight: We boarded our early Friday afternoon flight from Larnaca airport to Dubai with Gulf Air and had a quick 1-hour layover in Bahrain.
Arrival in Dubai: We landed in Dubai around 8pm in the evening. First thought – “Wow this airport is huge”! We then made our away out of this massive structure and hailed a taxi to our hotel.
Five – Palm Jumeriah
Our hotel was situated at the beginning of Palm Jumeriah
Luxe Suite with Sea View
We arrived at our hotel in the evening and as soon as we checked in and dropped our bags off we were eager to explore the hotel and maybe even have a cheeky cocktail or two.
We were so excited to be in Dubai that we forgot to eat and by the time our hunger pangs kicked in all the restaurants were closed and so our only option was room service – which we were not unhappy about 🙈
The first day in Dubai started like any other day – coffee and journal and on this occasion a traditional Arabic pistachio-filled date ✨
We then headed down to the pool for a refreshing dip in the pool 💦
After a little swimming session we headed down to the beach
In the afternoon we hit Dubai downtown area. First stop was Dubai Aquarium.
We then headed up to Burj Khalifa – tallest building on Earth
We concluded the day with stroll near the Dubai Mall, dinner and fountain show.
The second day of our holiday started with breakfast and relaxing by the pool
In the evening we went for a stroll on JBR The walk and met up with a friend for dinner, drinks and of course more shisha
Day 3 – My Birthday
Our 3rd day in Dubai started early – 4am pick-up from our hotel, just in time to watch the sunrise while riding camels in the desert 🐫🌵
And now time for Arabian breakfast in the Beduin camp
At lunch we headed back to JBR as we were so impressed the previous evening that we wanted to see in daylight too
In the evening we went to the penthouse bar in our hotel – I say with confidence that this is the best bar that I’ve been to so far in my life! Everything, the atmosphere, the drinks, the view, the music, absolutely everything was perfect!
We wrapped up my birthday and our final day in Dubai with a 5 course dinner in the beautiful Italian restaurant Quattro Passi
Overall, I had the most amazing experience in Dubai and will definitely be visiting again soon!
