Great offer at Atlantis Dubai

A room in Atlantis for KD 105 per night is a great offer. I don’t know what’s happening with Dubai, but even the Jumeirah Beach Hotel has amazing offers. Remember when I wrote a post that rooms start from KD 80 including taxes and breakfast.

I love Dubai, I can love it double and take up both offers. Hmm, what a great idea.

Where to feed your friends when they Visit Kuwait

We all have GCC and Arab friends that come visit us for a few days. We try to make them come during the wonderful months between November and March, in an attempt to deceive them about our devilishly hot weather.

If you’re like me, I don’t mind having them come visit during the summer months. I like the sea, enjoy the beach, and love water activities. Therefore, it goes without saying that if anyone visits me in the summer; be sure we’ll be spending most of out time in chale. Only problem is the unpredictable dusty weather. That would be the only thing stopping us from having a good beach\sea time. (Insert an sincere apology for my Saudi friends whom witnessed 3 full days AND nights of dust last week,, sorry girls, so so sorry).

Anyways. There are a few places, i.e. food stuffing places, that every visitor asks to go to:

  • We have to start the day with Breakfast at the Early Bird Cafe (have no clue why, even though I’m gonna head there after this post to have breakfast and Coffee).
  • Go for dinner at the ever so trendy Slider Station or the recently opened Open Flame Kitchen.
  • Enjoy the view at Marina Crescent and Marina Waves.
  • Have a late Lebanese lunch, after swimming, at Al-Mijana in Al-Koot Mall.
  • Have a very late night Milk shake and apple pie ala mode in Johnny RocketsManshar Mall.
  • Enjoy an early evening snack and dessert at Chocolate Macaroon in Jlai3a.
  • Now if your friends are shway classy or pertinacious, then you obviously have to take them for breakfast at Dean And Deloca in Avenues.
  • Enjoy a cup-a-joe at Starbucks Free Trade Zone, and just watch all the cool bikers with their cool bikes. What a sight.

Bon appetit, mes amis…

A post about what to do in Kuwait is on the way…

Sea trip to Al-Dar Island in Bahrain


On a recent trip to Bahrain, I read in their Time Out magazine about sea excursions to Al-Dar Islands. So I decided to go and have a day of fun at the beach.

You ride a nice looking boat from Fishermen’s Port to get to the island. The trip is really short at less than 5 minutes, since we could actually see the island from the port before we even left. The Island is in front of Al-Bandar resort in Sitra area. The boat will take you back to mainland whenever you want, any time.

Adult tickets are BD 10 and kids are @ BD 5. They’ve got JetSkies, lagoons,  beach volly, hamoucks, a coffee shop, a restaurant, Sheisha, and alcoholic drinks.

The cool thing about the isalnd is that you can take boat trips to do almost anything you want. You can dive for Pearl searching, go on a boat for Dolphine watching, or just chillax in the sea and et7adig.

Like I mentioned, there is both a coffe shop and a restuarant; in addition to a place that sells nicknacks such as tobbacco and chips. You can also have sheisha and alcohol on the island. Everything is brought to you on the beach, while you’re reciling in a beach chair, a large bed, or a hammock.

By the way, the island is man made and is quite small. I’m not really good with dimensions, but I think it’s like 1/3 the size of Kubbar. Tops.

However, I have got to say that I’m impressed with what they’ve made over in Bahrain.
