Afternoon Tea @ The Library, St Regis Downtown Dubai

Afternoon tea is a tradition that mum and I do – whenever she’s here. As such, I would actually say we have done most of the Afternoon Teas in Dubai, particularly those that were in the Entertainer. Past tense, because as we all know, most venues are (sadly) no longer part of the program. Whilst […]

The Palazzo Versace High Tea @ Mosaico Lounge Dubai

Having done the afternoon tea a few years back, I decided to return to Mosaico Lounge again as a treat for a dear family friend of ours over the Christmas period. I wanted somewhere nice, somewhere different than our neighbourhood here in the marina, and of course – an offer, any offer will be a […]

Summer Family Staycation @ Palazzo Versace Dubai

A belated write-up of a memorable staycation that we had in Palazzo Versace one summer. We still talk about it every now and then. The level of detail that the Versace family have put into all the interior design is impressive. We took so many family photos in the lounge of our suite, my mum […]

Mother’s Day ‘Bespoke Afternoon Tea’ @ Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

The sky was grey from the sandstorm but that didn’t stop us from getting a little dressed up and heading back down the West Crescent to Zabeel Saray. Car valeted, we walked straight in heading towards Sultan’s Lounge. I found one of the staff, informing him that we were here for the ‘Mother’s Day Afternoon […]

My Little Valentine Afternoon Tea @ Roman Lounge, Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai

Caesar’s have completely decked out their lobby area for the upcoming Valentine’s Day. There are kisses all over their statues, red love hearts and crosses hanging from the ceiling – and as you walk towards the Roman Lounge, you get more Valentine’s decor staring back at you. Yes, it’s all a bit tacky and OTT […]

Afternoon Tea @ Plato’s, Atlantis the Palm

You’ve seen that light blue, translucent shell that appears to be levitating mid-air within the lounge in Atlantis. Magical 🙂 I’ve always wondered what they serve there – if I could have a drink or two one day, without breaking the bank. Then the 241 for the afternoon tea popped up on the Entertainer for […]

A Family Day Out @ Fairmont The Palm

Whilst the evening didn’t start out right, as we had planned to stay in the Kid’s Club with both our girls for half an hour before dinner started …. this was eventually made up by great service (and food) at Flow Kitchen 🙂 And of course, an hour of peace and quiet during dinner as […]

A Chic Afternoon Tea @ Armani Lounge Dubai

It’s always a grand feeling, to hand your keys over to the Armani Hotel valet guys. I speak like I go there all the time. Not really. I wish 🙂 So I met up with the parents the other day after work, to try out the newly launched afternoon tea at Armani Lounge. It would […]

Chapters Afternoon Tea @ The Retreat Palm Dubai

Palm Court Afternoon Tea @ Jumeirah Beach Hotel with Isme Elite

As much as I love reviewing food as part of an invitation (i.e free), I will have to admit that you can only truly experience the real deal when you head over as a paying guest. It’s quite upsetting when it’s from a brand close to heart. I sat on the fence on this one […]

Revisited : Afternoon Tea @ Fortnum and Mason Dubai

So after a not-so-good first impression of Fortnum and Mason last month (read my review here), we decided to give it another try a couple of weeks later. It really was a spur of a moment thing – I was standing at the corner of The Dubai Mall LG level, flicking through my handy Entertainer […]

Mina A’Salam Afternoon Tea @ Al Samar Lounge Dubai

Last November, I had organised afternoon tea at Al Samar Lounge with the girls (yes, because it was in the Entertainer, and yes, because it’s always gorgeous in the Madinat). The review never made it live on the blog. Though we had a fabulous time sitting in the terrace overlooking the Burj Al Arab, I was […]
