The Kempinski Hotel Ajman- An Oasis Worth Visiting

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Who doesn’t dream of escaping to an exotic oasis retreat for a few days of relaxation in luxurious surroundings? I recently had a chance to do just that at the Kempinski Hotel in Ajman, U.A.E., a location supremely convenient to Dubai but worlds away from the frenetic pace of the extravagant, modern mega city. If you’ve been drawn either as a tourist or a business traveler to this shimmering country perched on the edge of the Persian Gulf, a stay at the Kempinski Hotel as an add-on to your Dubai itinerary may be just the way to experience the richness of the region’s desert heritage and stunning beaches.

Alternatively, with Ajman’s proximity to all that Dubai has to offer and the hotel’s convenient shuttle service, you might wish to make the Kempinski Hotel your base while sampling the delights of this flourishing desert nation.

 

Taking full advantage of its spectacular setting aside the Persian Gulf, the Kempinski Hotel offers guests an ocean view from each luxuriously appointed room. Balconies overlooking the pristine beach and the sparkling ocean offer the perfect spot to watch the setting of the hot Arabian sun. Guests who would prefer to immerse themselves in the oasis-like atmosphere of the resort’s stunning pool area can book a room with a patio at the poolside. Like a true desert paradise, the pool area and the grounds surrounding the hotel are shaded by an army of palm trees. I like the traditional Arabian style of the hotel’s architecture where stone columns, arches and fountains in the public areas provide a sense of place that is sometimes missing in the modern structures ubiquitous in neighboring Dubai. The décor, as well, includes elements of traditional Arabian design which add character to the fresh, clean and modern furnishings.

 

A highlight of any stay at the Kempinski Hotel has to be enjoying an evening meal overlooking the beach at the Café Kranzler, the hotel’s 24-hour restaurant that caters to every taste with a variety of cuisines including Middle Eastern and Mediterranean. Chinese and Indian cuisines are also well represented at the hotel’s other fine restaurants, Bukhara and Hai Tao, or you can get your pizza fix at Sabella’s Italian Restaurant. After dinner,enjoy a cocktail overlooking the beach at Zanzibar, one of the Kempinski Hotel’s seven bars catering to every interest from cigars to hot tea. For additional rejuvenation, a visit the resort’s full-service spa will complete the experience of being pampered at a desert oasis.

The Kempinski Hotel will definitely be part of my itinerary on my next trip to the U.A.E. and it might just be my only stop.

Exclusive Fly Over and Birds Eye View Of New York City

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

 

There are many fun and exciting ways to experience New York City and I have enjoyed most of them.  Just walking the streets will fully immerse you in the fabric of what makes the city so dynamic and exciting.  The subway offers hours of people watching and entertainment and a leisurely cruise along either the Hudson or East River allows for a picturesque experience. Recently I was fortunate to experience the city from a very unique and exclusive vantage point.  Thanks to the services offered by Wings Air Helicopters I hovered 1500 ft. above the heart of the worlds most famous metropolis.  Wings Air’s unprecedented rights to skim the top of the Manhattan skyline and be able to quite literally wave to the people on top of the Empire State Building affords an experience that will last a lifetime. The take off and landing point is only a short drive from Manhattan at the Westchester County Airport in West Harrison NY and to be honest the short flight to the city, (about 8 minutes) in which the skyline comes into view immediately helps build the anticipation and excitement.

Adventures In Djibouti

Djibouti, Africa offers the adventurous traveller an enchanting experience. With new scheduled routes from Doha to Djibouti, Qatar Airways makes the Horn of Africa more accessible than ever.  Thanks to Kempinski, Djibouti Palace I was able enjoy a luxurious retreat and explore the natural wonders that this part of the world offers.  Floating in Lake Assal, one of the worlds most saline bodies of water, is an incredible experience but I don’t recommend swallowing too much.
