Fairmont The Palm, PALM JUMEIRAH

FAIRMONT THE PALM



 We finally get to stay at the Palm Jumeirah on our 4th day in Dubai. We chose Fairmont The Palm Hotel instead of the Atlantis The Palm, just to try something different since we had so many reviews about the Atlantis from our family members. We decided to stay for 2 nights.



 The hotel is huge and peaceful, offering lots of facilities, the private beach, pools, etc. The only thing that made us disappointed was the construction that going on! Watch our vlogs and review about the hotel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOLv3OMyA3o&t=35s



 We checked - in around 12 pm, we were exhausted and ready to pamper ourselves here. So, we decided to spend the whole day at the resort for the first night, start to wander around Dubai the next day. It was 40 to 42 degrees, We were totally frying!



 The room is really nice, but it could have been better without the construction going on. The noise of it really made a huge different to the peaceful ambience. Lack of birds chipping, or anything, all we can hear, was the constructions.

you can see the constructions from the picture...
 They also blocked the view between the infinity pool and the beach, which we found way too disappointing! because, the main reason Annie chose the hotel was the view of it!


 She was really disappointed and upset about it, because she's going to listen to the constructions for 2 nights in a row and no infinity pool views for her.




 She lost her excitement to get in the pool, but we enjoyed the time we spent together at the beach. A kid was approaching us, and played with us while we were wandering around. You can watch our vlogs at the beach at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOLv3OMyA3o&t=379s and the night we spent at the FLOW KITCHEN at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6INOZn2cTU&t=88s






 We went to the Flow Kitchen, We sat outdoor. The place is nice and relaxing, I really wanted to chill at this place with a great wine. but sadly, my body was not compromising. I still got a hangover from the skydiving activity, and I got a fever. So I just had a mocktail and Annie enjoyed her champagne while accompanied with comfort foods.






We went back to our room at midnight, and had a chit chat before we ended the day. We could listen to the sound of racing cars all night long. It's like the town never sleeps here.






 The next morning, Annie had her breakfast like a queen. She ate a lot of sashimi as her breakfast, suppose we have the pictures, but we lost it. But if you do follow our instagrams I'm sure you saw it. It is definitely unlike a breakfast. LOL!

DUBAI PLATINUM HERITAGE LUXURY TOUR & SAFARIS | DUBAI DESERT | DUBAI SAFARI TOUR

DUBAI PLATINUM HERITAGE LUXURY TOUR & SAFARIS | DUBAI DESERT | DUBAI SAFARI TOUR

Things that we do at the Dubai Desert ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=al1DGaQ4FwQ&t=203s )




 We chose the Dubai Desert Tour that provided by Platinum Heritage Dubai. The tour has many options ; Hot air balloons ride, Helicopters, Desert Safari Tours, even for wedding proposals and etc.








 We chose a private package desert tour; decided to ride the camels for around 40-45 minutes, There are some options offered, whether you wanted to ride the camels for a longer time or experiencing the sand dunes bashing. And, the options come with different prices. You can check the prices at their website.



 Our pick up time was supposed to be around 3 pm, But they announced us that they delayed for 30 minutes at the day. At first, I thought we booked the private package that means we will go on the tour with only the two of us. But, we head to the desert with another two group of people, which was really nice. Because we were able to make friends. It took us almost 1 hour before we arrived at the desert, Hans saw a lot of attractions and heard a lot of stories ( I was sleeping in the car ), like how the locals pet the camels for racing and sell them with a very very high price. It can reach million and billion dollars. 



 When we arrived, we're separated with our friends because we booked the different tour packages. It was a very warm welcome, Our tour guide put on our Jilbab! so lovely, I love how I look with the jilbab tho Click here! To see our Dubai Desert Vlogs



 We have like a few minutes to play around before we finally get our turn to ride the camels! The camel man was so friendly! We were so happy that we met a lot of friendly and nice people for the whole trip here! 






 We saw a bettle moving a rock while we were riding the camels! too cute, That was the first time I saw a bettle moving a rock! We also took videos and pictures for a few times. The Camel man helped us a lot without even asking, he knew us so well!! and The fact that the camel man asked and let us chose to ride the front camel made me really happy! I am so touched! 



 For 40-45 minutes, The second camel behind us, keeps on pushing our feet. Instead of being scared, we pat the camel's head! She's just too cute and clingy! I love camels!!








 After we arrived at the second drop point to watch a Falcon show, we were welcome with a warm towel and a champagne!







 Hans and I were such a busy body, we were the last to receive the warm towels and champagnes just because we were wandering around playing with the camels! And I love the feeling to run at the dessert, I almost tripped twice but I was too happy, and I can tell you I am not the only one who runs when we reached the second drop point! It just, I was the only one who run back and forth! lol




 While watching the falcon show, we took pictures and videos. It's a very cool show with the sunset ambience and views at the desert! Totally the best way to spend a weekend!






 After the Falcon show, we ride an unique Land Rover Vintage to our bedouin-style camp! We reunited with our friends! I swear even the ride to the camp, made me happy! 
 After we arrived, They explained about the cultures, entertainment and all the foods that they provided at the camp.










 We had a great party at the desert, accompanied by delicious meals and drinks!! I had my Henna tattoo which I love so much! We even make more friends with the locals and another tourists! They also provided a free shisha, but we didn't try it. lol






 There're lots of dance shows, my favorite is the fire dance! We were outside the camp, no lights, no flashes, no nothing just the fire dance, music and The BEAUTIFUL STARS!! 



 It's impossible for our cameras to take a picture of the skies that full of stars, I just don't know why! But it's really so beautiful, so shiny, so romantic! I don't know how many times I almost teared up that day, I was so emotional! I can't move on from that day!



 We had fun and went back to our hotel at 11 pm, Our group were the last to leave the camp! Had a hard feeling to leave the place!
