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 […]

Something I’ve never seen – a Mustard Wagon: Restaurant J&G Steakhouse @ The St. Regis Al Habtoor (22. February 2018)

Something I’ve never seen – a Mustard Wagon: Restaurant J&G Steakhouse @ The St. Regis Al Habtoor (22. February 2018)

I felt like a large junk of meat – and the J&G at The St. Regis Al Habtoor is the perfect place for that. It all started with a “cauliflower soup” as an amuse bouche. Which is somewhat atypical for a steakhouse but it cleansed the palate plus the warmth of it was very pleasant. […]

Perfect place for an evening shisha and drink: Garden on 8 @ Media One Hotel (22. February 2018)

It is a bit more than 1.5 years ago since I have been to the Media One Hotel on the Garden on 8 where they were celebrating something like Oktoberfest. Finally, it was time to return and in the evening the pool area is just amazing. The “Double Apple Shisha” (95 AED) is to be […]

Healthy food in a nice atmosphere: Restaurant Circle Café (22. February 2018)

Healthy food in a nice atmosphere: Restaurant Circle Café (22. February 2018)

The Circle Café offers you a healthy lunch option close to the Marina. The “Edamame (seasoned Japanese beans)” (14 AED) are pretty regular but good. The “Beef Burger (beef patty, iceberg lettuce, cheddar cheese, pickles, tomato jam, caramelized onion jam and mushroom sauce)” (62 AED) served with “Za’atar Fries” (26 AED) was definitely better than […]
