The first notable hotel/resort we stayed in the emirates is the Al Wadi Banyan Tree. Banyan Tree is a brand of luxurious villa-style resort that has really established itself in Asia. This resort in the desert is definitely for... (continue reading...)
這次阿聯酋體驗之旅的重點 hotel 第一站是位在沙漠裡的艾瓦迪悅榕莊. 悅榕莊是個新加坡的頂級 villa style resort 品牌, 在大漠小路彎來的地方居然有這樣的渡假點, 隱密性絕對夠, 真的不是一般人會不小心找到的....
... 地方. 很適合想遠離人群, 有自己空間的渡假人.
.... people looking for some secluded quiet times, away from people holidays. You\'d probably never accidentally stumble upon it because it\'s not that easy to spot and it is a hide-out in a desert.
View from outside the check-in area.
The whole resort area is huge. So if you want to get around, you have to either call a buggy (an electric car like those on golf course), or you just have to walk a long way (& might get lost) because you only see road signs every so often.
Each villa is for 2 people. Every villa has only one floor but the ceiling is pretty high.
We didn\'t see photos of the resort before coming here so everything that we saw was a big surprise.
Super large bathroom + the wow bathtub.
Partial bathroom view.
To the bedroom!
Lots of seating area in the villa.
There\'s also separate room for work, TV or music.
The chandelier above the bed.
The bathrobes are very nicely designed as well.
Every villa has its own swimming pool (with warm water).
Having Dinner at Al Wain Restaurant at the Resort. You could choose to have buffet or order from menu. We preferred ordering from menu so that\'s what we did.
The dinner here was sort of included with our package (as long as your total dinner bill for per room is within 500 DHS) . We ordered lots of goodies but still didn\'t exceed 1,000 DHS.
Good morning sunshine!
Took the buggy (electric car) to the same restaurant for breakfast.
I think the presentation of the food for the breakfast buffet was done quite well. Everything looked delicious. The muffins were also freshly baked and you had to take them out from the silicone mold. That was yummy.
We decided to walk back after breakfast and tried not to get lost.
What you\'d see along the way other than sand.
In the evening or early morning, you could see deers or wild goats around.
This is another hotel in the resort. It\'s closer to our villa but it\'s not open. The buildings here are all in the colour of the desert.
These are the larger villa. Most of them are occupied as well.
Our swimming pool in the morning had a bit of sand around it but it still drew someone into it. x)
