Mercure, London Bridge

Walking distance from The Millennium Bridge that leads you to the famous St. Paul’s Cathedral and just about a 5 minute walk to the Southwark Underground, this place has a great location. We travelled with an infant and loved the fact that there was a Tesco and Sainsbury less than a minute away for us to…

The Groes Inn – Conwy, North Wales

We stumbled upon this property by chance due to an almost last minute cancellation of another property where there did not have any rooms suitable for infants. We did not regret the decision at all ! It’s a gorgeous property.  We loved the whole setup. It is supposedly the first licensed house in Wales and the…

A gorgeous place, excellents meats and a unique concept. Butcha is a Turkish restaurant chain with a good presence all over Middle East.

I don’t think there is anything in the world that is not in Dubai. La Mer now serves the Bingsoo – a shaved ice dessert popular in Korea. If you thought ice cream or iced desserts are a saviour this summer then the Bingsoo will pleasantly surprise you. The cafe also serves some very unique…

Asado – Palace Downtown

The Palace Downtown has always fascinated me for its absolute beauty and for the gorgeous view of Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain from it.

Masti

There’s an air of royalty and class when you enter the place and it feels like you are in a designer studio at just a glance. The interiors are traditional yet modern and the place is simply beautiful. Located in the South end of La Mer, this place, I would say is in the more…
