An in­sider’s guide to the UAE

My favourite spa

The Talise Spa in Al Qasr Ho­tel is my ab­so­lute favourite. Its lay­out, de­sign and small, lux­u­ri­ous and be­spoke treat­ment rooms give it a special feel, en­hanced by the lus­cious green­ery all around it.

My favourite hair­dresser

I have been a loyal client of Pas­tels Sa­lon Jumeirah for more than ten years. I com­pletely trust ge­orgie, the sa­lon’s man­ager, with my hair and she re­ally spends a lot of time cre­at­ing the perfect colour and hair­cut. She is so con­sci­en­tious about do­ing a good job that I have come to rely on her and trust her very much.

My favourite pam­per­ing treat­ment

I love a Moroc­can bath, fol­lowed by a mas­sage. There is some­thing so ther­a­peu­tic about the bath and it re­ally en­hances your sense of well­be­ing. It’s also a fan­tas­tic beauty treat­ment to leave my skin clean, soft and glow­ing. To have a mas­sage after it is so in­dul­gent, but I al­ways leave feel­ing al­to­gether amaz­ing and com­pletely re­laxed.

My favourite fam­ily restau­rant

We are re­ally spoilt for choice here, there are so many to choose from. As a fam­ily, we re­ally en­joy The Farm at Al barari, as it is more like a so­cial hub than a sim­ple restau­rant. The menu is filled with de­li­cious, or­ganic dishes that are re­ally healthy and, thanks to our vis­its there, my two daugh­ters are now used to eat­ing sweet potato rather than reg­u­lar chips! It is very fam­ily-friendly and the girls love to run around after en­joy­ing their food.

My favourite date night spot

We like to try as many dif­fer­ent places as pos­si­ble when we get some time, though at the mo­ment, our favourite date night des­ti­na­tion is the Four Sea­sons. We have tried sev­eral restau­rants there and re­ally en­joyed our ex­pe­ri­ence at each one.

My favourite place to un­wind

I do love the sea, so that would be my ul­ti­mate choice. but I so rarely get the time to go to the beach that I have cre­ated my own re­treat in my very own back gar­den. I like to go there around 5pm or 6pm and watch the sun­set sur­rounded by green­ery

My dubai hid­den gem

Al Qu­dra Lakes. Nes­tled in the mid­dle of the Saih Al Salam desert, it’s bril­liant for get­ting back to nature and a great place to camp as a fam­ily and to walk dogs. I love go­ing there.
