Have you been to Dubai Parks and Resorts, the new leisure and theme park constituting 25 million square feet of land that houses Legoland Park, Legoland Water park, Motiongate Dubai and Bollywood Parks? I’ve been invited to witness the opening a couple of months back but didn’t get a chance to go since it was a weekday/work day for me.
Last week, we went to Lapita Hotel, a hotel inside Dubai Parks and Resorts that’s part of Marriott International’s portfolio to experience their new brunch offerings called #DaycationBrunch. It’s a long drive from where we live, nearly an hour away but it wasn’t hard to locate plus, a Polynesian-themed resort right in the middle of the desert? That got me curious.
Lapita definitely offers something new and unique. It’s really worth checking out. I can’t wait to stay here. But first, brunch! I’ve been to brunches in Dubai with one trying to outdo the other but Lapita Hotel’s #DaycationBrunch? It was insane. The buffet spread was so rich it’s hard to decide what to eat first because apart from the usual international favorites like cheeses, Japanese section, yummy desserts and seafood, there were live cooking sections for grilled meats, Sunday Roast with all the trimmings and Fijian food!
And of course, booze.
The #DaycationBrunch includes pool time in the package so even if we had overcast skies and scattered rains in Dubai last week, we couldn’t help but take a dip, it’s temperature controlled at 38C!
Lapita Hotel is a unique hotel – no, it’s a destination in itself. It’s basically aiming to make you feel like you’re on a tropical island. And you bet we really did feel it!
How family friendly is the brunch at Lapita Hotel?
There’s a special section with so many staff supervising the kids and making sure they have a great time. They played a lot of games. I highly appreciate brunches that don’t leave children’s needs (and adult’s need of alone time with vodka LOL) and Lapita really does a great job at entertaining the kids. However one flaw – I wish there’s a designated area for parents near the kids’ corner so parents can watch the kids and know they are just there. I get worried whenever Benjamin scoots off from our table, though assuming he would be heading for the kids’ corner but who knows if he’d wander somewhere else. Just a little anxious so I or his older sister have to accompany him to make sure he goes there.
Now, now for the best bit: I know the weekend is only two days away but if you hurry, you could experience Lapita Hotel’s #DaycationBrunch where adults eat for FREE* this coming Friday, March 3rd! Please check out their Facebook page for details and terms and conditions or email them at lapita.restaurantreservations [at] autographhotels [dot] com or Tel +971 4 810 9999.
We were guests at Lapita Hotel but all opinions are my own and I am not paid to write good things about them, however, if you want to experience something new, they’re worth the drive and penny.
