Arjaan by Rotana l A Family Weekend Staycation

If you are in Dubai Media City, there is a building that truly stands out from the rest of the skyscrapers in the area. This one is a beauty that one cannot mistake for another as it has a Moorish design, simply stunning inside and out. Arjaan by Rotana-Dubai was our luxurious home for a couple of days over the last weekend. We didn't go for vacation to the Philippines this year hence we are making the most out of our local annual vacation in Dubai. We were warmly received at the reception and check-in was quick and easy. Parking was never an issue as valet is available 24 hours a day.

BurJuman Arjaan by Rotana: Our City Escape

Ferald and I needed a break and some time alone together but most of the time life gets in the way whenever we start to plan. Going beyond city limits is not an option if the kids aren't coming. Then came the opportunity to spend a night at BurJuman Arjaan - one of Rotana's many beautiful and luxurious managed properties in Dubai. It was for a Thursday check-in and Friday check-out which suits our schedule really well. I couldn't be any happier to accept the invitation. It was also a week before Valentine's day. A luxury boutique hotel apartment -  BurJuman Arjaan by Rotana  is at the heart of the city and part of a multi-functional complex that includes upscale office tower, exquisite boutiques and an endless choice of restaurants and caf├ęs within the BurJuman Centre and is located conveniently in front of the BurJuman Metro Station.

Rotana Yas Island

Le Meridien Al Aqah in Fujairah was our summer destination last September 2010 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This summer we headed to the country's capital - Abu Dhabi. Mica was very excited although we didn't tell her where we're going since it is meant to be a surprise. My toddler is quite clever, it only mean outdoors for him when he is ask to put his sneakers on. I did an almost last minute reservation at Rotana Yas Island, for a week I have been searching for a hotel with good summer rate that includes breakfast, but with so many options and not knowing where exactly those hotels are located in Abu Dhabi and how good they are, I hardly pick one. In end up booking at Rotana, it is one of the many hotels in Yas Island. Currently, this hotel promos 2 free adult tickets to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi that is hard to resist (ooh temptations I know), I made my calculations and bet that it is indeed a good deal. Ferrari World tickets cost AED 225
