LA CANTINE DU FAUBOURG, DUBAI

A restaurant that has long been on my bucket list, we finally tried the famous La Cantine du Faubourg, a hot-spot that has been filling Dubai’s bellies with fine French food for nearly three years. Sat in Emirates Towers, the Saturday night drive down to La Cantine was an easy one, setting the scene for what promised to be fantastic evening ahead.

What was previously a site for a bank quickly bloomed into one of the City of Lights’ most coveted addresses for a hip lunch, after-work drinks, dining and …

YOUR GUIDE TO GSTAAD, SWITZERLAND

A place where glitz and glamour encounters snow and Swiss cheese, the quaint village Gstaad offers a lot more than meets the eye! Home to Julie Andrews and Roger Moore and guests to Madonna and Margaret Thatcher to name a few, the small but highly social town marries the perfect mix of old and new – a place where timber-lined chalets and cow-grazed pastures is combined with Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabana. Whilst some may prefer to spend their time celebrity-spotting and gazing wistfully into the many luxury boutiques, Gstaad is also home to some of Switzerland’s best skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer, top-notch dining and fabulous five-star hospitality. Whether its well-being, sport, cuisine or culture you crave – young and old alike will find what they are looking for.

PARK GSTAAD, SWITZERLAND

Home to Julie Andrews and Roger Moore whilst hosting Madonna and Margaret Thatcher to name a few, Gstaad has long been a haunt for the filthy rich and truly fabulous, offering its patrons a home-away-from-home for balmy summer days and winters full of snow and ski. A town that oozes glitz and glamour, the small but highly social town marries the perfect mix of old and new – a place where timber-lined chalets and cow-grazed pastures meets Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabanna. Whilst some may prefer to spend their time celebrity-spotting and gazing wistfully into the many luxury boutiques, Gstaad is home to some of Switzerland’s best skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer – activities not to be missed (especially when you can do it in Moncler’s latest designer get-up). To match the elite cluster of designer shops, first-class restaurants and snazzy slopes grouped together in this tiny town, Gstaad is also home to not one, but five five-star hotels, but none are quite as appealing as the style and …

DRIFT BEACH CLUB, DUBAI

With the summer fast approaching, making the most of those sunny Saturdays has never been so crucial. After a long stint in Europe during February, I was very ready to get back to Dubai’s Spring sunshine and catch up on all the things that I had missed during my rather long ‘work’ trip. After a few miserably cloudy days to welcome me back to Dubai life, last Saturday was full on sunshine, so on a friend’s recommendation we decided to check out the city’s latest beach club, DRIFT. View this post on Instagram s u n s h i n e ☀️ s o a k i n g A post shared by Doodle Diaries DXB (@doodlediariesdxb) on Mar 4, 2018 at 7:50pm PST A stylish, yet understated retreat, where luxury beach chic meets casual simplicity, DRIFT ticked all our boxes for the perfect Saturday sanctuary, with its laid back yet vibrant ambience.

EATS OF THE WEEK

The Atlantic, Souk Al Bahar: Located in the heart of downtown Dubai, The Atlantic Dubai is set against the backdrop of the beautiful Burj Khalifa, and situated along the Souk Al Bahar’s extensive waterfront promenade overlooking the majestic Dubai fountains – it is probably the best views of the fountains you will get (unless you stand on the promenade, which let’s be honest, is no fun without a drink!). Whilst Mango Tree looked a bit tired, the new The Atlantic interiors are definitely nothing short of snazzy! The light and airy decor is in shades of white, blues, greens and golden, with marbled walls, long sofas breaking up the room and amazing light fixtures dotted around the room. Green ombre coloums stand tall throughout the room and the bar, with open kitchen views, provides entertainment all night long! Outside is the main star of the show though and when we stepped onto the terrace of The Atlantic, we were blown away by the views. Staying true to the concept of its Australian sister restaurant, the Souk Al Bahar …

THE THIRST QUENCHER FACIAL | SISTERS BEAUTY LOUNGE

With 2018 in full swing and resolutions still in tact, I was on the hunt for Dubai’s best facial – something that would give my skin the TLC it needed and prepare it for three weeks of brutal European winter. With 6 branches pampering women in prime locations across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sisters Beauty Lounge’s newest salon at Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai is by far my favourite spot to chill and their new ‘Thirst Quencher’ facial provided the perfect remedy to help plump up my skin ahead of the freezing temperatures. This relaxing, “no downtime” treatment infuses skin with the restorative and uplifting benefits of peptides, growth factor activators, and proteins. With a team of expert facialists on hand, the experience is a pleasant one from start to end, and because Sister’s is not part of a hotel, you get all the 5-star treatment without the 5-star price tag! The stunning branch on JBR is quaint and cosy and is conveniently located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the bustling beachfront of The Walk. …
