Dubai Atlantis and Nobu Eats

1 Oct

We spent the first part of our honeymoon in Dubai, which was the connection en route to the Maldives – our ultimate and final destination. In truth I hadn’t ever thought of visiting the country – except maybe to Abu Dhabi for the Formula 1 grand prix – and was excited to experience a new culture in travel. It’s an interesting place, Dubai. They are trying so very hard to make it the ultimate tourist destination.

If you visit in winter (November – March) and love to shop til you drop, this is the place for you. Dubai is Las Vegas, without the casinos. So if  you prefer the more sinful attractions of Las Vegas and could do without the 13 hour flight, hit up the Las Vegas strip.

Poor hubby’s sickness got worse in the hot, humid desert heat and he spent our first day at the Atlantis Palm Island in the clinic on a nebulizer. Someone from the wedding was patient zero and got a bunch of us sick. We will find you….

Anyhow, after hitting the ahhh-mazing ESPA, I was ready to have our first real night out on the Honeymoon. Sick or not, I was going to eat well and enjoy it, damnit! As expected, I was not disappointed.

Previewing Our Honeymoon in Arabian and Maldives Paradise

25 Sep

It’s been a month since my last post and a LOT has happened. Like, I’m finally a Mrs. and we just got home yesterday from a super amazing honeymoon. I went to bed around 9:30 last night and made it to 5 AM today. Let me tell you, it was quite a shock to wake up without the sound of waves crashing, missing my in-room Nespresso machine and the amazing ocean-side breakfast service.  But alas, one must return to reality I suppose.

As for the wedding, I don’t have the professional photos yet but I can assure you the day was absolutely gorgeous if I may say so myself. The weather was perfect. The food was amazing – from the oyster bar featuring local goods to the barbecue dinner and assorted mini pies and cupcakes for dessert. Guests had a blast. We executed our first dance like pros and had an amazing time together. I’ll post more on the details once I have photos to share.

Our honeymoon was planned by Lynn at Bella Vacations and we seriously could not have dreamed of a better trip to Dubai and the Maldives. The experiences were out of this world and the food was top notch at every turn. Each property was also prepared with special “Honeymoon” treats – hard to decide which had the better chocolates, towel swans and other touches.  What do you think?
