It’s summer deal time. While I’m in Australia, chilled to my bones, I’m going to share a little warmth with you all, and this year my post goes out to Radisson Blu. This is partially because I was wandering around Ortaköy last month, and stumbled across the perfectly positioned Blu Bosphorus – as yet it’s untried by me, but after blowing a bundle at a neighbouring hotel and finding it coming up severely lacking, this would definitely be my choice next time I visit the city. (Zuma is inside the hotel people!) Rates from 800AED/room/night (more on my Istanbul food experiences here…)


Next we have the Blu on the Dubai Creek, with a couple of famous restaurants – firstly, The China Club, which is arguably Dubai’s best value licensed Chinese restaurant, and Shabestan, which takes a similar gong for an Iranian – and has one of the most atmospheric bakeries in the city. They also have the recently hyped Yum! Restaurant – a pan-Asian eatery that is gathering momentum, and Fish Market, which is one of Dubai’s oldest seafood restaurants (they just celebrated their 25th anniversary – no mean feat in a city as fast-paced as Dubai. Rates from 308AED/room/night


Another Summer getaway for residents is the super-value Radisson Blu at Media City, with Certo, a favourite Italian of mine, super ladies’ nights deals at Icon, and one of the cruisiest poolside bars in the city – perfect for this sweltering season. Rates from 440AED/room/night


Fujairah is not far either, and with temperatures hovering about 5 degrees or more below Dubai’s it’s a decent option right now. I had a lovely stay there over winter, and their proximity to Dibba makes for an easy drive, great fishing, and a perfect jump-off point for dhow trips over in Musandam. Rates from 460AED/room/night


But don’t stop there – you can save up to 20% at Radisson Blu Hotel & Resorts in select destinations all over, including Abu Dhabi, Prague, Berlin, Shanghai, Muscat, Amsterdam and many more. Here’s your link – knock yourselves out darlings xx
