Seagrill on 25, On the Palm, Dubai (Beach Clubs pt2)

After hearing alot about the Fairmont's newest beach club, Seagrill on 25 I made reservations before flying out to Dubai. But..I didn't need to when we got there it was only 1/4 occupied but it was such a beautiful location this just made it better. We visited on a sunday and paid 200dhs entry which included some refreshments and use of towels, beds etc.

Miss S and I caught a Taxi to the Fairmont Hotel (On the Palm) and to get to the beach clubs we went through the main entrance of the beautiful luxe hotel.  Surrounded by flowers and grand chandeliers, we felt a little underdressed in our beach outfits (even though we were highly fashionable). 

After walking down a few flights of stairs we reached the beach. 

WOW! Such an amazing view welcomed us.

We were given the choice of where we wanted to sit and then we were provided with towels and water, then a shot of lemon and mint pressed juice (instant yumminess) and a selection of fruit.

The beach club is an extension of a beautiful fish seagrill restaurant which unfortunately we didn't have time to sample but I would recommend this location for anyone who is looking for a relaxing day where it is quiet, amazing views and promises of amazing food. Over lunchtime the restaurant was very full so the word is definitely out. 

On a day when you didn't want to spend money on a beach club there is the public beaches but it isn't a luxury experience and the views aren't as good but if you are on a budget they are very clean and you can rent beds and parasols for low prices (less than £10).

If you haven't been to Dubai I can highly recommend it, it's so clean and it doesn't matter where you go the service is impeccable. There is something for all ages and tastes. You can have a great adventure even on minimal money if you want to and of course there are plenty of places to splurge too.

It has been 1 year since I went to Dubai and it has changed so much during that time, there are new buildings and even more under construction which will change the place again. Dubai Pearl (palm) and Crystal buildings (marina) which are sponsored by Swarovski crystal which I am sure will look amazing.

Let me know where your favourite spot is in Dubai and I will pop it on my to do list for next time.

I can't believe all my Dubai adventure posts have now come to an end. Thank you if you have been reading them.

Meydan Beach Club, Dubai (Beach Clubs pt1)

My posts from my holidays to Dubai are nearly over, just 2 reviews of beach clubs I went to then it will be time to start planning my next adventure! It's hard to believe its 5 weeks since I came back from Dubai and it would be good to be chilling in the sun right now when it is so cold outside in the UK.

Welcome to Meydan Beach in Dubai Marina....

Miss S & I loved this place so much we went twice, it was 150dhs 
but you were able to use the beach and pools all day. We were provided with some refreshments and towels.

There was a dj playing dance music throughout the day and waiter service. The place was busy on both the Wednesday and Monday that we went. I remember seeing this venue before as it was in a boohoo advert in the summer.

Get there at lunchtime if you want to choose your seat, we were lucky to get a space next to the pool and floating beds on both occasions.

Coconuts were yummy and refreshing as a lunch break.

Chilling by the pool in the city, and it is next to sky dive Dubai so you get to watch the high volumes of skydivers coming down every 15 minutes (rather them than me!).

I can recommend going to Meydan Beach club if you are looking for somewhere relaxing and upbeat so spend your day by the pool.

Neos @The Address Downtown, Dubai

Dubai is a place that is constantly changing and new places to go to. Which means you can always go somewhere different and be really impressed with the view during the day from the beach or at night from somewhere really fancy.

When you are with someone in the 'know' you get to go to places off the map and lucky for me Miss B is that person!

Downtown Dubai is dominated by the Burj Khalifa (Tallest building in the world) and at the foot of it is the dancing fountains, Souk Al Bahar and the Dubai Mall.
Due to the restrictions of alcohol you have to head to a hotel for a cocktail and opposite the Burj is The Address, Downtown.

Rare treat of day time fountains
Next to the Dubai Mall
Hiding on the 63rd floor through a secret entrance in the car park is the lift that will take you to Neo's.

As I make everyone pose for the lift photo, Miss B tells me to hurry up as the lift opens straight onto the bar... 

What a beautiful bar it was with decorative lighting and a wall of windows and luxury seating.

We arrived just before 10pm and lucky for us there was a table next to the window which gave us amazing city views and a birds eye view of the dancing fountains.

I have an eye for detail and that includes finishing touches to cocktails and cocktail menu's which had little quotes - 

Before Midnight Cocktails - "Don't run away yet Cinderella, the only glass in our fairytale is the one in front of you, no slipper involved".

Enjoying my Espresso Martini

We had a great time at Neo's and the complimentary nuts were really yummy too!

Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo @Dubai Mall

Look at the face on this fella, isn't he cute?! The vast size of the fish tank within Dubai Mall blew me away when I first saw it last year, I never get bored of these guys. 

Miss S and I decided to go through the tunnel to take a closer look. We just paid the lowest price option of 80 AED (approx. £14) that gained us access next to the tank to walk through the glass tunnel then entry into the Underwater Zoo (which I had no idea was there on the 2nd floor of the mall). Other options included scuba diving into the tank (hmm no thanks) or going on a glass bottom boat to feed the fish!

Here are some pics from inside the tunnel, it did feel strange being so close to such big sharks, and I am more than sure they couldn't see me, but one did scare me at one point by showing me his teeth! Eeek!

Here I go....(Thanks Miss S for this piccy)

Just a couple of sharks...
More of my favourites, they were all individuals 
This one looked ghostly
Husband & wife?

Once we had come out of the tunnel, we then had to go 2 floors up in the mall to enter the underwater zoo... we hadn't really heard much about what was in there and it was full of surprises!

So sparkly

Inside the underwater zoo is a pair of crocodiles which have been living together for over 20 years. Referred to as King & Queen Croc. Flown in from Australia in the summer and they haven't been in the mall for very long. It states in this article that King Croc is one of the biggest saltwater crocodiles in the world.

King Croc is over 5 metres long, 750kg in weight and 35 or 40 years old (keep finding conflicting info). I couldn't believe the size of him! Apparently he is even set to grow larger in the next 50 years.

Something to keep as a reminder!

I can definitely recommend taking the tour if you have a couple of hours spare while at Dubai Mall. It is suitable for all ages and I know it's something I would never get to see in the UK.

Hope you enjoyed this post.
