In my recent visit to Dubai last week. I stayed in Vida Hotels and Resorts - Downtown Dubai. It was my first time to stay in Vida Hotels and Dubai Downtown. I arrived at 10am in the morning. I checked-in and sat two hours waiting for my room to be free and cleaned. Actually, the hotel is nearby Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and Dubai Boulevard Village.
Around 12pm, I got my room ready. The room is so fabulous, clean and luxury. I book for a king standard room, which is good for one or two guests. I disliked the setup of an open plan bathroom, with a separate shower and toilet.
The hotel designed for intuitive style, convenience, comfort and sensory stimulation. Finally, I enjoyed my one night stay in Vida Hotels and Resorts – Downtown Dubai. I recommend families or businessmen to choose Vida hotel as for the best comfortable place to stay in. I rate Vida hotel 09/10.
Emaar Dubai organized “Dubai Festival of Lights” for the first time ever. To create a witness Downtown Dubai in a new expression of art and light. All the iconic projects in the ‘most prestigious square kilometre on earth,’ including Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall, will have a brilliant new façade of festive lighting, adding to the touristic appeal of Downtown Dubai, already one of the most-visited lifestyle destinations.
The festival started from March 20 and end’s on March 29th, 2014. You can watch the lights activities every evening from 7pm to 12am in Dubai Downtown.
I was in Dubai last Wednesday and stayed one day only for some work. However, I stayed all Wednesday morning and afternoon to cover up some meetings. At night, I dropped my bag in the hotel and kept walking down in Dubai Downtown. I haven’t been their since three years in the Dubai Downtown. During my walk in the downtown, suddenly a showery rain came in the town and I forced myself to enjoy this moment to continue walking down the path.
However, I founded lots of things changed in the town. What can you do a night in Dubai Downtown:
- Dinner or coffee in one of the restaurant & cafes
- Rent a bike and enjoy the ride downtown
- Walk down the town through Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain area
- Take a ride in one of the fountain boats
- Visit Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa or The Address Hotel
- Dubai Boulevard Village
- Make sure you change the passport every 1-2 months
- Don’t include your email in the account profile
- Choose a password that includes letters, numbers and symbols such as (Q8@P1a3th)
- Don’t choose the same password for your other accounts
- If you received any emails to reset your password from Instagram without your request. Don’t answer to the email and don’t click to any link.
- Don’t login to your account through any public PC or any phone that don’t belong to you.
I hope these tips could help.

As well, their were some activities, DJ, gathering and draw. After the event is done we moved to enjoy rest of the night with Zain BBQ. I enjoyed the night. Thank you Zain Social Media.

I received a set menu and chose to order Boccini Nachos, Gamberi Croccanti, Funghi e Pepperoni Pizza and Foresta Nera Pizza Dessert. I really loved the food taste of Boccini Nachos and Gamberi Croccanti. I ordered 3 more of Gamberi Croccanti as I never tasted same shrimps in my life. Their pizza and pasta were also delicious and I don’t have any comments to say.
But I disliked their desserts. They are don’t that tasty and well cooked. I recommend to fix the desserts by using other ingredients without pizza dough. I rate Boccini Italian Pizzeria food (09/10), location (06/10) and atmosphere (08/10).
