DUBAI – Hyatt Regency Creekside

I had to go to Dubai for a doctors appointment so we decided to turn it into a weekend stay. So we booked a night at Hyatt Regency Creekside since it was very close to the clinic.

Tim enjoyed his stay at the hotel, he went for a swim and a massage. I spent the time with Renee talking and catching up and consuming the stuff in the mini fridge and mini bar. Guess What? IT WAS ALL FREE LOL since we booked a Club Member room.

The hotel offers a variety of restaurants and we had dinner at La Tablita, an authentic Mexican restaurant. The hotel is huge and has a lot of things to do and the location is really great, it has easy access to all parts of Dubai and also has a mall (Wafi Mall) near by and 15 minutes walk to the metro station.

Weekend Stay at Al Hamra Village

Tim and I celebrated our 2nd year anniversary in Ras Al Khaimah. We stayed at a hotel called Al Hamra Village and Residence. not so far away from the boarders of Um Al Quwain.

We decided to go for a swim as soon as we checked-in our room. At around 17:00, we planned to try out the couple massage which we realised we needed. While paying at the counter, the man informed us that there was a pool party at the Palace Hotel from 18:00 – 22:00. The pool party’s DJ played awesome music, he played 70’s, 80’s and 90’s music. I started dancing when he played Boney M and Peter Andre.

The Palace Hotel is part of the Al Hamra Village and it just a 10 minute walk from each other. Al Hamra Village has a Massage Centre, Restaurants and Swimming Pool. While Palace Hotel offers the same facilities, they have 2 pros which are:-

  1. They have 2 Swimming Pools. One of the pool has a volleyball net.
  2. Access to the Beach

Although it is a 5 star hotel, the rooms are fairly reasonably priced. So if ever you want to visit Ras Al Khaimah on a budget, we recommend this hotel. The only con we found is that WIFI is only provided in the Hotel reception and not in the rooms.
