La Luna, Al Hamra Marina, RAK

Last night was one of those nights when you don't fancy cooking, but want something quick and tasty.  Down the road from us is a lovely little Cafe called La Luna. They do the most amazing pizza's!  They also have a Thai menu which is just as delicious.

Festival City Dubai

Last weekend was so much fun!  A friend of my husbands is in town and we arranged to meet up for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe at Festival City in Dubai.  The hubby and I thought we'd make a weekend of it and booked a room at the Crowne Plaza Festival City.  I must say the hotel was gorgeous, and we were very lucky that even though it's Ramadan here at the moment the hotel still serves food and drink by the pool with the exception of alcohol! We had a great afternoon chilling by the pool, actually mostly in the pool as it's over 40 degrees celsius at the mo!  My husband order some calamari, as that is one of his faves! and he said it was really good. I knew we'd have a big meal that night, so I just went for the ice-cream, three scoops.  I had two vanilla and one strawberry, oh my gosh it was so tasty, perfect for a sunny afternoon by the pool! We had a great time at the Hard Rock Cafe. Never disappoints! I had their legendary 10oz burger wit

Park Hyatt, Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas, Saadiyat Island

Last weekend my husband and I stayed at the Park Hyatt on Saadiyat Island.  We had the most amazing time there. First of all we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Park Suite which was out of this world! We spent most of our time around the pool. Which again was stunning and we managed to bag a couple of sunbeds by our own little dip pool!  The beach there was pure white sand and the sea was a stunning turquoise blue. We ate in their signature restaurant The Park Bar and Grill. We both had the rib eye steak accompanied with the mash potato and asparagus in hollandaise sauce. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the side dishes were to die for. The restaurant was very romantic and intimate, perfect for that special meal.  Throughout our stay, the staff from the front desk, through to the pool attendants were consistently friendly and polite.  I cannot recommend this hotel enough!
