Disclaimer: All Dubai posts are based on travels back in March 2020. As the world continues to battle COVID-19, please, let’s all do our part by upholding personal hygiene standards, practicing social distancing, wearing masks, avoiding unnecessary travels and most importantly, staying healthy and well.
Known as the island for the rich, what better way to end the trip than living it up amongst the upper class for (sadly) one night? We stayed at a 5-star beach side hotel resort with views to die for. There were so many hotels to pick from in Palm Jumeirah and I’m glad I settled on Royal Central Hotel – The Palm. You’ll see why.
The hotel was so far in that we were practically stranded. Thankfully the hotel had complimentary shuttle service too to places within Palm Jumeirah. We chose to have buffet lunch in the hotel to save us the hassle. I wanted to spend all my time in luxury!!
Back to the hotel we went after a short stroll. We were surrounded by hotels and… nothing (if that makes sense). Enough of walking anyways. I wanted to and hit the sea and pool and be kissed by harmful sun rays!
Best part of the stay? Our room was the PERFECT spot to catch the setting sun.
After all that hubbub and gushing over the sunset, it was dinner time.
Day 2 of Luxury / Last Day in Dubai
Headed back to the hotel and with a heavy heart, we departed for the airport.
So, that’s it. The last of my international travels for who-knows-how-long. I’m not complaining though. I’d rather be well, alive and kicking. On 16 March 2020, all travellers entering Singapore from ASEAN countries, Japan, Switzerland or United Kingdom had to undergo a mandatory 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) to curb the spread of COVID-19. We arrived home on 13 March 2020 and avoided the implemented SHN but I still did my own home quarantine to be on the safe side.
My next adventures will all be Singapore-centric so as always, till then!
