Asian Luxury on top of the mountains- Alila Jabal Akhdar

If I could choose where I would retire, I would live by the mountains. All my life I have been taught to be appreciative of the woods and nature. My love to be in the mountains is partly because I was born in a hill station. Mountains barren or lush green, possess their own elegance and I can adore them all the time.

Alila hotels and resorts are maintaining a five-star luxury on 2200 meters, the hotel seems to just gel in the area. The resort lies close to the Saiq Plateau, an extensive upland plateau surrounded by craggy summits and steep gorges. The resort is surrounded by mountains, small hamlets, old, uninhabited villages, caves, and canyons, as well as countless small roads connecting to new valleys and views. It is a paradise for mountaineers, hikers, and nature lovers.

Tulip Inn RAK- Hotel Review

Vandanarajbhatt

Ras Al Khaimah is now emerging enormously as a new tourism destination in the UAE. Most of the major brands have opened new beach hotels and have huge expansion plans for Ras Al Khaimah in the upcoming years. Although the beach locations are appealing but the city hotels have their own charm. A few miles away from the majestic Jabal Jais mountain, we found a sweet hotel get-away last weekend. Tulip Inn- Ras Al Khaimah, is a part of Action hotels and is located in the heart of the city.

Tulip Inn Ras Al Khaimah Hotel offers stylish accommodations in the city center business district, walking distance from shopping centers, RAK Exhibition Center and the Free Trade Zone. The 102-room hotel is taking its part in going green, I was fascinated to find different garbage bins for green, paper and plastic on each floor. It reminded me of Canada wherein…

Newly opened Wyndham Garden at Ajman Corniche

Vandanarajbhatt

Boundless saltchuk, the only sight of reservoir, the clearly visible horizon and the impeccable part of Mother Nature. The pre-eminent segment is the Sunset: it was breezy and extramundane panorama at the shores of Ajman corniche with the majestic glory of Sun. I’ve been chasing the SUNSETS since I’ve relocated back to Dubai last summer. Sometimes, I manifested it right from my balcony, sometimes at Palm Jumeirah, sometimes at the creek, on the beach and now in Ajman last week. I don’t know if I am chasing the sunsets or it’s chasing me. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to witness the nature’s miracle multiple times in Dubai. This is one of the most important part of connecting with nature in this dessert.

Wyndham is a renowned worldwide name in hospitality. We recently stayed at the newly opened, Wyndham Garden Ajman last week to celebrate my husband’s 46th birthday…

Vandanarajbhatt

I have been craving for a good Gujarati Thali since I visited Gujarat last year. We were hunting for a new restaurant for lunch in Karama when we stopped by Kathiyawadi Express. We had heard their ads on Radio Suno1024. We wanted to try something new in Karama and especially a pure vegetarian option.

Kathiyawadi Express serves authentic Gujarati food from Kathiyawad, if you are like me who don’t like sugar in their food, you would love it here. Most of us recognize Gujarati food as sweet food. This was quite relishing spicy food.

We were welcomed by the staff, it’s just a small simple restaurant but the service was awesome. As you sit, one member of the team comes with a saucer and big pot to wash your hands. It was quite like the resort we visited in Ahmedabad. Then the team of servers gathered around us to explain…
