I caught the travel bug when my parents moved the family to Zambia when I was a child. Since then, I have made it my business to travel to as many destinations as possible. I love the Middle East for its sheer dazzling diversity. From the glitz and glamour of Dubai to the understated luxury of Oman, there is really so much to offer.

Travel nuggets

  • The Ritz Carlton Al Wadi is set on a nature reserve so don't be surprised to see oryx and antelope roaming the roads. The hotel actually provides you with a spotters guide to the local wildlife.

  • The Blue Jade restaurant at the Ritz Carlton Dubai has received awards for being one of the best restaurants in Dubai. Try the black pepper beef, it's delicious.

  • Nikki Beach's famous Beach Club is one of THE places to be seen in Dubai. From their legendary Friday brunch to the hottest events at Nikki Prive, you need to get there early as it fills up very quickly.

My hot picks

Bulgari Resort Dubai, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai

The Bulgari Resort is Dubai's latest hot property. Situated on the Jumeirah Bay Island, it is a small oasis of luxury and designer chic.
