Doubletree by Hilton Resort and Spa Marjan Island, RAK -Family Staycation

My husband and I loves to imagine that someday, together with our toddler, we can stay in a 5-star hotel and prestigious resort where we can bond as a family and absolutely have it for free. We did not expect that this wishful thinking of ours turned into a big reality. Yes, it was all for FREE. Why? Thanks to my husband’s knowledge of music world, he won a contest from Channel 4 radio competition. As a prize, he was entitled for a one-night stay at Doubletree by Hilton Resort and Spa Marjan Island with brunch, breakfast and a late check-out for 2 (that counts our toddler of course :)). What a prize indeed!

The reservation team gladly accommodated us and placed our check-in date within the Easter celebration. We are welcomed by staffs when we arrived at the venue and treated with refreshing complimentary drinks and yummy chocolate cookies.

Right from the reception, we headed to the Brasserie restaurant which we took our weekender Island Brunch- Maldives package which is worth 270 AED each! We got more excited when we saw the table that was exclusively reserved for us. We were so amazed on the wide menu with some classic European dishes, innovative mixes and some general great home-style food as well as refreshing beverages.

After the brunch, we proceeded to the Kids Club  while waiting for the room to be ready for us to check-in. My son really knew what he will going to do at such area. Inside there is a pool for little ones and dry-play equipments. Children can enjoy the amenities and toys inside the Kids Club room. Child below 16 needs to be with their parents/ guardians. The staffs were so friendly and approachable. No wonder the kids were really enjoying some drawing activities, playing some computer games and soft-play. At that day, staffs gave some The Boss Baby goodies for kiddos. It was really fun!

At about 4pm, we were guided and fetched by housekeeping staff to our room which is situated in the Bay Class. We just added few bucks to have such privilege. It has an access to infinity pool, eforea Spa ( for ladies only) which has sauna, steam room and pool which are are all exclusive for Bay Class holders only. The room was perfect. We are located in the sea view and infinity pool view. It was breath-taking!

We explored the Pirate Boat Aqua Zone first so our toddler can explore and enjoy the rest of the afternoon and we headed to the beach and infinity pool afterwards. The place is superb. It is just like a paradise on earth. It really makes you relax from the urban stress and city life’s hustle and bustle.

On the next day, we had our sumptuous breakfast in Bay Club Restaurant. It has wide varieties of food with lots of style and theme that everyone can enjoy. We really ate “like a king” at that time and we are absolutely full. 🙂 It was the most amazing breakfast I had ever since!

Splash Pad Dubai – Toddler Summer Fun

For almost three years stay of our family here in UAE, I saw a lot of wonderful spots, attractions and activities that your family can enjoy especially the little ones. One of these awesome venues which caught my attention is the Splash Pad Dubai. I liked and followed their page in FB last year to gain some more information about it and I was really planning to bring our toddler there one of these days.

Unexpectedly while I am browsing my newsfeed, Splash Pad Fb page did a contest celebrating International Happiness Day. The competition is all about asking your little munckin on what makes them happy and share their incredibly funny and heart-warming answers in the comments section below on the main post to win a full day pass for your little ones this year. Luckily, a message from Splash Pad Dubai telling me that I won, popped in. I was really waiting for the winner announcement for many days and I am so happy my son won a full day pass and that’s including us, his parents. I can’t contain my excitement for us to go at Splash Pad, which is located at THE BEACH Dubai – opposite JBR Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

As parents, we want our little one to enjoy and have fun. Our toddler enjoyed a lot on the prize we won. As we all know, summer is all around the corner and when you mention about summer heat in UAE, it is really indeed hot. But thanks to the convenient setting of the Splash Pad Dubai, sun burn and too much sun exposure is absolutely not worrying moms like me. 🙂 It is definitely a refreshing splash park for toddlers and kids that offers an array of activities from fountains, tipper bucket and water squirters alongside climbing frames, Imagination PlaygroundTM Blocks and high quality play equipment.

With varieties of refreshments and amenities available on site to match the experience, Splash Pad also offers the convenience of private changing facilities and a safe and welcoming environment with professionally trained staff. And they are all accommodating and approachable. You can also see and buy selection of products such as swim wears and accessories in case you missed to bring such stuffs. 

Splash Pad  also accepts special celebrations/ occasions such as Exciting Birthday Packages and group bookings which are available on request. On that day, we witness one of their birthday setting. It is indeed wonderful to celebrate special occasions of your little in this amazing spot. You can contact customerservice@meraas.ae for more info.

Just a month ago, I saw a competition post from Sunset Mall Fb page. The contest was all about sharing your dedication to your mom.

My cousin made it possible for me to reach it. I am thankful for my mom too of-course. 🙂

This not only helps in burning 500 – 700 calories in 30 minutes, but also results in the rapid conversion of fat tissues to muscle tissues.
  5. Skin Rejuvenation– The power of hydrojets gives a micro-peeling effect resulting in newer, firmer skin.
