Talise Spa Experience @JumeirahMB

1

Last Wednesday I stayed at Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa for one night and it was a great experience. Loved everything from check in to check out. Before checking out, I put Jana to bed with her father and then headed to Talise Spa around 10 am. I managed to find a booking around 11am because I called them around 8pm the night before and they’ve informed me that it was closed. So I just went in there and tried to find a booking and I did, than to Carole who managed to squeeze me in :)

The good thing about Talise Spa is that if you choose a 55 minutes treatment, you get to use the spa facilities all for free, like the Himalayan Salt room, Sauna room, Snow room, hydrotherapy pool and so many other rooms available in the the spa.

Now let me tell you about my experience from the moment I went inside til I left the place. I spent around 3hrs and trust me it wasn’t enough at all!

Carole from the Marketing department welcomed me with an infused cup of water and gave me a tour around the place. They also sell some great products at the spa.

The changing room with lockers looked so beautiful and elegant. Each locker has everything you need.

The showers

7

The changing rooms curtains are all hand painted. So beautiful.

8

I started my spa journey at the Himalayan Salt room which looked beyond relaxing and beautiful. I spent 30 minutes there and it wasn’t enough. I slept and it felt like I had a very long nap. The water beds were so comfy.

9

Then I stayed at the treatment by colours room for around 10 minutes and it was fun, I kept rocking the chair lol

10

After that I went to my treatment room where i had Balinese Massage. It was so good, and my specialist was really great and had strong hands. She recommended another treatment for me net time.

I liked how she knew what I did for a living from the pain in my body. From the very first 5 minutes she asked me “Are you a teacher?” And I was like “How did you know?” And she explained from the points of pain I’m feeling in my body.

11

After my so-relaxing massage, they took me to the relaxation room where they served me organic ginger tea with dried fruits.

12

The blue room where all the fun begins :D

13

Cute chair :)

14

The hydrotherapy pool. I loved it. It has many treatments for the waist, back, neck and thighs. I tried it for 10 minutes and it was so much fun.

15

Another treatment in the pool which I haven’t tried but nshallah next time.

16

The Sauna room, I stayed there for 10 minutes. I loved how they took care of everything. A person from the spa will take care of you from the moment you walk in til you get out and she’ll be around you if you need anything. She will come and tell you that your time is up if you tell her to come after 10 or 15 minutes. I asked her to come after 10 minutes and she did.

17

After that I went to the Steam room for 5 minutes and then off to the Snow room to cool my body. It was really cold but felt so good, 1 minute was more than enough.

18

The spa is really big and it has so many rooms.

19

This passage leads to the suites for couples which are really expensive.

Suite No. 1 has a Jacuzzi.

Suite No. 2 has a Himalayan Salt room

Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel Family Vacation

1

Last week, I’ve decided to surprise the family and get away from everyday life and just enjoy our time away from our daily routine. I booked one night at Jumeirah Messilah Beach which looked very suitable for a family with a toddler aged almost 3 years old. I wanted to take my husband away from all the troubles of his work and Jana to enjoy the beach and pool activities.

One might think that one night is not enough but to me it was hehe :P I got very tired going after Jana and looking after her in the heat under the burning sun while she enjoyed her time in the kids pool. Yes, it was worth it looking at that big huge smile on her face running and screaming out of joy but you know, I had my limits so one night was great.

We had an early check in around 1:30pm. Took our luggage to our room in the 2nd floor, changed and went to Olio to have lunch there (previous post). While we were heading to Olio, we passed by the swimming pools and Jana went crazy. We finished lunch, headed upstairs to change and then we went downstairs again where Jana had all the fun in the world. She didn’t want to leave that pool at all. It was lots of fun with all the splashing and games. I enjoyed watching her have fun.

We got out of the pool around 5:30pm, changed for her and she fell asleep til 7:30pm. We had light dinner at Mint Cafe near the blue fountain and then we went to Sindbad’s Kids Club where you can leave your kids to have fun if they are 5yrs and above or accompanied by someone if they are younger. I stayed with Jana for 30 minutes or so because later we had other arrangements.

The weather became nice around 12am so we got our snacks and we stayed in the garden til 2am. Hubs and I chatting while Jana ran around. It was nice.

The breakfast buffet opened at 6:15am and we were there around 6:20am because we couldn’t sleep and we were very hungry. The variety of food was really good and the food was really delicious. They also had great choices of cereals for kids and Nutella milk to add on. I chose that for Jana which she loved a lot. And then we went to the pool around 7:30am lol :P

After that, I took her the room, gave her a shower and off to bed. Then I headed to Talise Spa to enjoy my time (next post).

Now regarding the room, we got the regular one which accommodates 2 persons and 1 child up to 4yrs. It was decent and spacious. Loved the bathroom, kinda big and had everything in it. The room had a coffee machine with coffee and tea capsules, safety box and the bed was really comfy.

Olio Restaurant Experience @JumeirahMB

1

Today we decided to try the Italian Restaurant Olio located in Messilah Bech Hotel. We’ve made a reservation 3 hrs in advance and we’ve got our reservation confirmed for 3pm. But because we’ve arrived early to the hotel and got our room before the regular check in time, I called them again and said I wasn’t to make the reservation at 2pm and they told me to come and just enjoy lunch. The restaurant is located at the end of the hotl near the swimming pool area/beach. Loved the decoration and the seating area they chose for us. The atmosphere was really excellent and the staff was very nice, kind and helpful.

We’ve ordered the Rocca Salad with Mushroom and Cherry Tomato. Saffron Seafood Risotto and Oyster Pasta (forgot the name in Italian :P) All the dishes were great especially the Saffron Risotto and the Pasta. Jana loved the pasta alt and kept calling it noodles lol :P I also loved that they had some colours and colouring books for the kids to enjoy and a kids menu too!

The whole experience was amazing.

Hanami Eid Outfit for Juju

1

Eid Mubarak Everyone <3

A couple of weeks ago, my baby girl received a lovely gift from @HanamiBox (Instagram). I wasn’t expecting the dress to be that gorgeous actually. It turned out to be more than amazing and I couldn’t wait for her to try it out and take photos of her. She kept turning around and dancing loving the dress. She even didn’t want to take it off :D

I kept it in her closet for the second day of did because I’ve already bought a dress for her for the 1st day. The second day od did is considered more important in the family because we all gather for lunch and we stay til the evening,so I want everyone to see her wearing it tomorrow :D

Check the account @HanamiBox for more amazing dresses for your daughters.

Prime & Toast Breakfast

1

I haven’t written in a couple of weeks because you know we tend to get busy in Ramadan and we barely have time to scratch our heads. Mashallah time flies by so fast.

As Ramadan coming to an end, I believe all of you are thinking “where to have breakfast”? And I’ve saved this post for this day. The perfect place would be Prime & Toast, but you have to be there very early so you can have a decent table. It gets really crowded around 9 or 10 am and I hate crowded places.

The place still serves delicious meals and it hasn’t lost its touch, quality, service and awesomeness. I love it and will always love it.

Our last visit was a week before Ramadan and we ordered the following;

2

Bacon Bagel with Herbed Hollandaise Sauce

3

Salmon Bagel on Eggs with Sauce

4

We can’t get over the Hangover *yum yum*

5

French Toast with Berries

@TooGoodKW Healthy Snacks

I received a box full of healthy chips made of Soya Beans & Potato. They have 5 flavours, all tasted really good, and not to mention DELICIOUS. This is good when you want to snack on something and not feel guilty, friends gatherings, chalet, camping, etc. You name it. Only 83 Cals for 17 pieces, can you imagine that? %70 less fat.

I loved it.

Gerge’an Outfit for Jana by @Fatma_Al_Ateeqi

1

A couple of years ago, Jana received her first Gerge’an outfit from @Unique_By_Fatma Previous Post. It looked so beautiful and elegant on Juju, detailed and had all the essentials. Now this year, we also received a gerge’an outfit for Jana and it looked even more and more beautiful and elegant (P.S. I still have the first outfit stored). The band, the bag, a braclet and not to mention the outfit itself. A new character made just for Fatma Al-Ateeqi brand called Chakleeta which means candy but it’s referred to a girl.

I loved everything about the outfit, the colours and the fabric are so vibrant and suits kids just fine. She really knows how to design outfits for girls.

Before Chocolate Cafe Experience-The Cube Mall

1

Last week, I had a chance to visit the newly opened mall in Salmiya-Salem Albumarak Street The Cube Mall which to my surprise has only cafes and restaurants, no stores except for Xcite. So imagine a mall filled cafes & restaurants. It’s just made for you to go and hang out with your friends and family members or just chill out. I actually loved the place because it was quiet.

We chose Before Chocolate cafe to have a quick coffee and a kind of dessert to enjoy our time. And the place turned out to be really good. We loved the service, the food, and everything in that place.

You should order the Davous dessert, it’s reallllly good and heavenly delicious.

As you can see from the [pictures, it’s a chocolate place, so you can pick your kind of chocolate from the counter and have it served to your table or just have take away.

@Nena_Sweets_KW Coconut Chilled Cheesecake

1

How did the above picture make you feel ha?

Heartbreaking, I know. I just kept looking at it onceI opened the box and didn’t want to touch it at all. It’s like it’s untouchable :D So delicate and beautiful, not to mention so beautiful <3

This cheesecake is made of coconut and chocolate and garnished with Ferrero Rochet white chocolate *yum yum*. It’s also chilled. So cold as if you’re eating ice cream.

I loved it a lot and you have to try it. It’s really huge and I think it’s good for a gathering of 12 persons.

Check their account they have other flavours @Nena_Sweets_Kw

Copper Chimney Experience @The_Avenues

1

How many Indian places we have in Kuwait to dine in? Un-countable actually but which are the best ones? They are very rare, the good Indian restaurants in Kuwait and one of them I’ve discovered last week whenI went with my father and Jana to have lunch in The Avenues, we saw cope Chimeny restaurant. We were greeted by a nice staff and we chose a table close to the entrance because Jana wanted to see the fountain :P

I swear in just 30 minutes the place was FULL HOUSE and a waiting list started. I’m not surprised that people actually want to wait for a while just to dine in this place.

My dad started his meal with a chicken corn soup which he loved a lot. Then for appetisers we ordered Potata Tawa and it turned out to be Heavenly delicious and I highly recommend it. Really good.

Then the main dishes were Gosht Parda Biryani and Morgue Makhni. All were really really good especially the Parda Biryani, I loved the taste and how it was presented to us.

When you are in the avenues, you have to try this place.
