Weekend getaways are always a good idea and here at Etiquette we are always on the lookout for perfect location for you and your loved ones to enjoy a nice weekend away from home.

We tried the desert, the beach and even the mountains but this time we decided to relax and hide in plain sight.

Nestled in the heart of Dubai’s vibrant Downtown district, Vida Downtown Dubai is a little jewel that people tend to forget while thinking about a weekend getaway.

This boutique property has everything you need to spend a relaxing and entertaining weekend while enjoying the best services in town.

The magic starts in the lobby, where you are welcome by the hotel’s staff for a smooth and effortless check in, which is hard to find in Dubai, you get a complete presentation of the property and its facilities, which is pretty helpful when you don’t know the property.

The magic continues when you reach your room, first you will be amazed by the sleek and modern design of the room. Only to get astonished by the breath-taking views of Dubai Downtown the hotel offers.

The rooms are comfy and somehow give you a feeling of home, granting you a relaxing stay in a familiar environment. The classic amenities are there, bathtub, shower, confortable chairs to relax and bed that will make you want to move in.

Welcome to the future.

Ordering room service has never bee that easy. On your smartphone or directly on the room’s TV your favourite dishes and drinks are just one click away.

We loved the room and its features but we can here to relax so we checked out the pool.

Surrounded by cabanas VIDA’s pool is a relaxation haven. This quiet pool is the perfect place to relax, swim or have an ice cold drink in you favourite bathing suit.

We opted for a quick swim followed by an ice cream and we also worked a little. You can seamlessly do all that by the pool and that was amazing.

For dinner and breakfast we went to 3in1, we tried La Serre and Toko before so we wanted to taste something new. The menu is simple and mixes flavours from east and west resulting in an amazing tasty international restaurant, and with its terrace it is an unique place to enjoy after work drinks when the weather gets cooler.

Between taking in the sun at VIDA’s trendy pool and lounge, fashionable dining experiences and enjoying the city attraction all in the vicinity of Downtown Dubai, VIDA Downtown Dubai is the perfect spot for a quick, effortless and affordable break this summer.
