Outdoor Breakfast @ Monty’s, Address Montgomerie

So many years here and this was literally the first time we’ve been to Monty’s. I wanted somewhere different, somewhere outdoors, somewhere green.

Summer Staycation @ Address Dubai Marina

Whilst we’ve been to the Address Dubai Marina countless times … oh the many ladies nights in my previous life, brunches, afternoon teas, summer camp for the little ones, massage – literally everything the hotel had to offer, we’ve never stayed there.
