This is awe­some: Le­goland Dubai vis­i­tors will be able to take the ad­ven­ture to their rooms when the first Le­goland Ho­tel in the Mid­dle East – the sev­enth glob­ally – opens in Dubai in 2019. The 250-room ho­tel, which will be lo­cated in Dubai Parks and Re­sorts, will have Lego mod­els in ev­ery room, as well as ‘a disco el­e­va­tor’ and a cas­tle play area. The Le­goland Ho­tel will be the sec­ond ho­tel at the theme park, fol­low­ing the open­ing of Lapita, a Poly­ne­sian re­sort, at the start of 2017.

Re­mem­ber that feast the en­chanted Mrs Potts and her team serve Belle in Beauty and the Beast – sug­gest­ing she ‘try the grey stuff’ on the plat­ter? Now you can try it at the Tale As Old As Time high tea at Town House restau­rant at the Kens­ing­ton Ho­tel. Cel­e­brat­ing the live-ac­tion ver­sion of the fairy tale’s March 17 re­lease, ex­pect cups and teapots in the shape of Mrs Potts and Chip Potts. The re­sem­blance to the film doesn’t end there – the sweets and snacks on the menu are in­spired by the film’s scenes and char­ac­ters. The tea has been ex­tended un­til Novem­ber 30, so add this to your must-go-to list for when you visit Lon­don next. Dh161 per per­son, town­house­kens­ing­ton.com.

Check into the Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Mi­lano, and you’ll get a pair of Manolo Blah­niks – ho­tel slip­pers, that is. The iconic footwear de­signer has cre­ated limited-edi­tion ho­tel slip­pers for the Mi­lan ho­tel he calls his ‘sec­ond home’ to cel­e­brate the launch of his ex­hi­bi­tion The Art of Shoes. The cloth slip­pers have got­ten a chic makeover in deep blue vel­vet and satin with golden em­broi­dered mo­tifs. The slip­pers are free for guests book­ing the Manolo Blah­nik Pack­age, which would do Car­rie Brad­shaw proud – it in­cludes ac­com­mo­da­tion in a Su­pe­rior Room, break­fast, ac­cess to the ex­hi­bi­tion at Palazzo Mo­rando un­til April 9 and a glam aro­matic foot rit­ual for two. All this for Dh3,235 – about the price of a pair of Manolo Blah­nik stilet­tos.
