Royal Mirage Dubai

All that greenery… Where have you been all my life? The second the car turns into the hotel entrance and that divider lifts, it’s like entering a world where time moves a little slower and birds chirp from trees that line the winding roads like they do in a Disney film. This feeling of being in a private, magical garden continues: from airy rooms that open out onto acres of grass and the beach, to winding walkways that lead you to fabulous restaurants. #RoyalMirageDubai really is an oasis in the city.

There’s a lot of beauty in the architecture and interior design at this dreamy hotel. We fell in love with all the arches that gave an elegant touch to every corner of the resort.

If the hallways are this graceful, imagine what the rest of the hotel has in store…

The Welcome

You think romance, you think rose petals… (flattering) candlelight… soft music and a light fragrance… the #royalmiragedubai is steeped in romance and elegance. And yes, that is a fountain filled with rose petals in the lobby. Not a mirage.

The pool is a fabulous place to spend an hour… or five or six…

Food-tastic 

The fresh seafood, particularly local hammour fish, is a treat at beachside tables at #beachbarandgrill. It’s all nodding palm trees, sea breeze, and elegant seafood at this hotspot.

Really, this is Dubai, not the Caribbean!

Watch the sunset and the pretty people at #jettylounge. Kick off your heels and sink your toes in the sand…

Can you feel the sea breeze playing with your hair?…

 

Spa-mazing

This resort does spas right. The Traditional Royal Hammam is an absolute must-try.
