Tan lines and good times, Here’s why this pet friendly beach resort is the perfect holiday season getaway!
Nestled in the foreshore of the Arabian Gulf, Vida Beach Resorts, Umm Al Quwain are classified as the first 5-star luxury property in Umm Al Quwain that has become the buzz for the upcoming holiday season. With various contenders in UAE’s luxury market, and the downfall from the recent pandemic, Vida Hotels has managed to set its benchmark in hospitality, from their welcoming service staff to their lavish amenities. Seamlessly facing a bay along the gulf, the classy exterior of the resort with lush sandy hues and arabesque structure, envelopes it’s guests before they take a step in.
Wooden key cards are presented upon check-in to show the Vida’s sustainability promise, with detoxifying refreshments while the guests await access to their rooms.
The interior of the property is bathed in natural light, with direct access to their selection of dining outlets, the spa & the beach. Every step of the way you find an Instagrammable spot, from their pop of color furnishings, immaculate pièce de résistance to their design-led spaces.
Boasting the numerous selections of eatery ‘Origins’ for all-day devour, the cuisine there is equally as delectable as the chic décor indoors, with also an open-air seating for the view lovers. While you may be at the resort to relax, we would propose to not sleep in fear of missing out the bountiful breakfast buffet at this social diner.
Stage 2 which is a typical lobby lounge to connect, socialize and grab a cup of coffee to go. The perfect spot for a high tea with their delicious chef’s selection of snacks, pastries, desserts and unlimited coffee! Dipping at the poolside?
