Hilton Resort - Ras Al Khaimah // Last Lazy Days

10 March 2013

I'm rolling days three and four in to one slightly picture heavy post today. 

The thing is, you know how it goes on these kind of breaks...leisurely breakfast followed by a day by the pool, napping in the sun. Maybe a stroll on the beach and a dip in the ocean, if you can muster the initial motivation to lift yourself from your sun lounger that is. Perhaps a sundowner cocktail at the beach bar. Then, to the room to shower and dress for dinner. Cocktails, wine and far more food than you'd ever normally think was acceptable to eat. Maybe a nightcap in the piano bar then back to your room to sink into the luxuriously soft and downy bed. (I have to ask, how is it that hotel beds always feel so much comfier than my own?! Where do you get those beds from?)

Sleep, wake, repeat. Glorious, unhurried relaxation!

As wonderful as it was (oh boy, it was!), I'm itching to show you what we got up to in Dubai now though, so here's (a fraction of) the photos I took on days three and four. 

That leisurely start was getting later each day.
Lace dress - Similar  //  'Fairfax' sunglasses - Elizabeth and James
Essential highbrow poolside reading.

Mustered up the energy for a dip in the pool.
Sundowners at the beach bar.
Sequin Clutch - Zara  //  Tassel Necklace - HRH  //  Hareem Pants - Next  //  Blazer  - Similar

Rise and Shine. It's another beautiful day.
 
Lunching.
Back on the sun loungers for a nap then late afternoon card games and a refreshing drink.
Churrasco (Your man's ideal dinner, trust me!) at the hotel's Brazillian restaurant, PuraVida.
Caipirinhas  //  It'd be wrong not to sample one or two of Brazil's national drink wouldn't it!
I'd already given up but the Mr struggled on. And on. And on. 


Tomorrow - To Dubai!

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and remembered it's Mother's Day today! Love you and miss you mum! :)

    1. Thank you! I'm a bit obsessed with wearing white and the lace is so pretty! I'm thinking of trying it with a khaki jacket this spring too to harden it up a bit if you know what I mean :)

  16. I'm sitting here in Hamburg, Germany, at office. Outside it has been snowing since saturday and we have approx. 30 Fahrenheit. Now I'm looking at your wonderful pictures and I'm really very VERY jealous...WOW, the pool. And the sun (when did I see the sun the last time? Umh...)! :D :D :D I'm just kidding. Your trip seems to be like a dream!
