Surprisingly good tapas in the UAE: Restaurant Taperia @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

I was a bit skeptical to try the last restaurant in The St. Regis. The Taperia. I mean, why would you try Spanish tapas in an Arabian country? Well, it turns out that this is actually not a bad idea. I went for the “Albondigas a la Catalana (Catalan meatballs)” (32 AED) which were good […]

The one place which doesn’t fit the property: Restaurant Oasis @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

The one place which doesn’t fit the property: Restaurant Oasis @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

While my overall experience at all the restaurants in The St. Regis was a positive one, the Oasis is not really on a comparable level. The Oasis is the pool restaurant and frankly not really appealing in terms of layout and setup. However, they have a small little spot a bit on the side looking […]

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

The Grill Pit is an intense place – noisy, loud but full of life. I started with a non-meaty starter. The “avocado salad (avocado, asparagus, sun dried tomato pesto, green peppers, preserved lemon dressing)” (85 AED) didn’t look too appealing at first as the salad leaves were way too big to be palatable. And the […]

The Julius Bär Gold Cup 2018 @ The St. Regis Polo Brunch @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

The St. Regis Al Habtoor Polo Resort stands for one thing – Polo! And I was lucky enough to experience this years Final round of the Julius Bär Gold Polo Cup (10th anniversary). And you get to sit outside in the sun and enjoy the game and the view. But inside there are the true […]

Amazingly relaxing atmosphere for shisha: Equestrian Lounge @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (8. March 2018)

When you return to a place after 6 weeks and the hotel staff still knows you, you get a truly special treatment. You feel more than comfortable and welcomed in the Lady Astor Suite. After having established oneself in the room, it was time to visit the Equestrian Lounge and go for that lovely “Double […]

Your private dining experience @ Emirates First Class Lounge @ Terminal A (24. February 2018)

Your private dining experience @ Emirates First Class Lounge @ Terminal A (24. February 2018)

There is always a first time for everything in life – and today was the first time I have been to a First Class Lounge. The lounge is humongous! It is basically another airport layer on top of the actual airport layer. And there are two proper à la carte restaurants in there. I decided […]

Healthy food, amazing shisha in a great setting: The Courtyard @ Hotel Manzil Downtown (24. February 2018)

I love returning to that place – although the service was not at its peak in terms of performance today, the location is still gorgeous. I went for a plate of “Hummus” (31 AED) which was of good quality and was – quite untypically – not served with Arabic bread but with a variety of […]

Lovely location but limited selection of dishes: Restaurant Level Seven @ W Dubai (24. February 2018)

Lovely location but limited selection of dishes: Restaurant Level Seven @ W Dubai (24. February 2018)

The breakfast selection at the Level Seven in the W hotel in Dubai looks tremendously appealing as it is spacious, colourful … … and has an open kitchen concept. Things are beautifully arranged but what is lacking – for me at least – … … is the selection. There is a bit of everything but […]
