Staycation at Westin, Abu Dhabi

What can be better than doing something exciting and going on a little road trip to Abu Dhabi? Well, a staycation at Westin hotel was definitely better than any of our expectations.

Famous among the golf community, this stunning property has a lot to offer both to UAE residents and tourists. It is very lush and green, and every single room has a stunning view of the golf fields.

What I love about this hotel is its architecture – natural materials like wood can be seen throughout the property. It has a very warm feel to it and perfect for Instagram shots

I was anticipating my visit to the Spa as I heard a lot about it and just could not wait to have some “me time” and be pampered

A quick consultation on my skin and I was advised to have a Superfood treatment. Since I am all about superfood in my plate, I was very intrigued to try a facial with promised to revitalize my skin and nourish it with vitamins.

I really enjoyed the biotech technology – the ultrasonic peel was very soft and suitable for my ultra sensitive skin. The lavender mask was both relaxing and calming irritations.

I never tried Elemis products before but was very happy with the scents and how soft and yet the effective the products were. I am now considering switching to this line in the future.

My face was a little red after the extractions but the skin felt super clean, soft and fresh. I need to spoil myself more often ❤️

A quick change in my gorgeous room and I was ready for the dinner at Sacci, an elegant Italian Restaurant on the first floor. My hubby Marco looked as handsome as ever and the night promised to be magical

We asked the chef to recommend us vegetarian options and soon our table with covered with some of our most favorite dishes.

I personally fell in love with the ravioli with rich mushroom sauce and allowed myself to have a few sliced of the popular Margherita pizza.

I was so hungry and the food was so good that only towards the end of our dinner I actually noticed the beautiful black and white photographs of Florence on the wall behind me.

While all the food was of the superior standard, it was the Basil panacotta that stole our heart. A huge lover of Basil in my salads and pasta, I could never imagine this herb in a dessert and yet I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the restaurant. Tiramisu is a safe option but Basil Panacotta is sophistication redefined.

The next day we decided to have a lazy time by the pool and I could not be happier. I find that swimming is both a great workout and a way to destress. Even just splashing the water is so much fun!

I really liked the fact that adults have a separate pool so everyone could enjoy a quite time and just read a book or chill in the pool. The tents provided much needed shade and the sun-beds by the pool were perfect for those who wanted to tan.

The relaxing spa, excellent dining experience and a lovely time by the pool were just what we needed and I can’t wait to be back for more.
