Most of us living here have been lucky enough to go to Jumeirah’s Al Qasr Hotel, but if you haven’t yet, there’s no doubt you’ve been missing out on one of Dubai’s best hotels by far. This beautiful hotel is the Jewel of the Jumeirah crown and you’ll instinctively see this as soon as you approach it’s long tree-lined avenue, adorned with its’ beautifully sculpted Arabian horses. It never fails to impress us every time.
Al Qasr hotel was built as a tribute to the age-old architectural styles of Arabia – an oasis of luxury that’s been designed in the style of a Sheikh’s summer residence. The hotel replicates traditional royal architecture whilst still somehow managing to subtly couple this with luxurious modern touches throughout. It’s renowned for its pampering of visitors (not just for the spa) and undoubtedly has one of the best views in town.
We suggest you gather up your Mummy friends for their sumptuous breakfast feast or Afternoon Tea. You can either sit inside or on the terrace that overlooks the Madinat Jumeirah waterways, overlook the early morning waves of Jumeirah beach whilst taking in the magnificent and ever-impressive Burj Al Arab (definitely worth a selfie there!)
The Al Fayrooz Afternoon Tea includes a fabulous selection of sweet treats that will remind us of home – think British favourite’s like Victoria Sponge, English fruit cake, tea cakes, sandwiches, scones and much more (just be sure to have a light lunch!)

If you have visitors in town this Easter, you’ve got to try Al Qasr’s amazing feast that’s at Arboretum every Saturday – it’s an impressive buffet that seems to extend beyond where your eyes can see, and every dish is impressively presented as you would only expect from Al Qasr. It includes a wide range of flavours from around the world and you’re definitely recommended to make room for the desserts as that’s where the chefs really pull out all the stops! You can sit outside on the terrace that’s alongside the waterway and watch the abra’s making their way back and forth along the lagoon or you can sit inside their fabulous restaurant too.
