Dubai is an amazing city! The architecture, colors, food, and culture are truly incredible to experience in person. I visited last month and have to say the “winter” must be the best season there, as far as the weather goes. The days were warm and sunny, and the nights were clear and slightly cool. It was perfect.
We stayed at the beautiful Westin Mina Seyahi resort in the area called New Dubai, which is located near the Jumeriah Palm and Dubai Marina. With multiple pools and restaurants, beach access, views of mega yachts in the harbor, and full access to the pool and beach area at the neighboring Le Méridien resort, it couldn’t have been a better place to stay. Total convenience to the rest of the city and beaches, along with impeccable service, a popular brunch, occasional shopping markets and other entertainment activities, it has something for everyone. We will definitely be returning!
One of our favorite things to do was to walk along the beach at night – feeling the cool waters of the Persian Gulf under our feet and turning around to see the beautiful city skyline all lit up in dazzling color against the dark night sky. It’s a magical experience!
