Hey Guillaume! I Love Dubai and its modern city! It’s very cool and the mix of desert, big city life and the sea is very nice! We’re all happy about that vacation and will visit this city again, that’s for sure! Only the hotel Kempinski disappointed us in many ways these days… It’s like a huge camp full of families and crying kids, the beach isn’t that beautiful and clean as on the pictures and also the rooms are not that clean in the daylight… Did you know this? I mean did you were at the hotel and have seen the rooms etc.? Because on pictures the Kempinski looked more spectacular, classic and elegant than the One&Only but in real life it’s completely different…
But, well, we’ve seen the O&O Hotel on the Palm for comparison and THIS hotel is awesome! Cool design (interior), almost white sand-beach, small hotel, less rooms which means privacy and really good kitchen (also fantastic buffet for breakfast; we went there to have breakfast because Kempinski’s buffet is awful), so we will book the O&O next time… Did also a lot of activities here these days, Speedboat Trip, F1 driving at the Autodrome, Quadbiking & Jeep drive through the desert, Ferrariworld…if you want you can use the following pictures as « commercial » for Dubai, to show them to your customers Hope you’re doing fine?
All the best, Melanie (avril 2013)
