So a 7 hour plane ride and almost as many glasses of Champagne later, we arrived in one of my favourite fun Cities to spend a week.  Can you guess? Yes, it’s Dubai and Mr C has taken a new apartment there.  I don’t normally let him choose anything without me seeing it first, but I have to say he made a splendid choice all on his own!

This picture is taken from the terrace of our lounge which looks right over the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world at a breathtaking 828 metres, it has more than 160 stories and is the centre piece of Downtown Dubai.  Pretty stunning right.




The Burj Khalifa is home to the Armani Hotel (thats me posing outside) with 160 guest rooms and suites, The Club, a 4 storey fitness annexe (think I’ll give that one a miss), on level 124 is an observation deck (I’m thinking about that one), but if I don’t get quite that far, I could always stop at level 122 at At.mosphere fine dining restaurant….now that sounds a bit more like it. 🙂

And for the beautiful party people amongst us, you could try out Armani/Prive a designer playground of a nightclub, with its array of VIP tables and booths and lit by the region’s largest LED wall.  Throw on your best designer threads and statement heels when you head down – you don’t want to be underdressed in this crowd.  Did I go there…..need you ask!
