JA Lake View Hotel

Checking In

Shooting Club 
Beer from India which is only at their restaurant and it was very nice 
There is a new fabulous hotel that has just opened a few months ago in Dubai. The JA Lake View hotel. It is located in Jebal Ali and it is right next door to the very well known JA Beach hotel. 
As you're driving towards the hotel you are immediately drawn to the impressive architecture, the hotel looks amazing. 
We arrived at the valet of the hotel, we were approached by the lovely staff at the entrance. A member of staff called Philip had a huge smile on his face and welcomed us to the hotel, he then helped us with our luggage and took us inside to the reception so we could check in. We were so happy with how great the customer service was already even though we had only just arrived. Check in was very quick and simple and the member of staff checking us in was helpful explaining to us when bus shuttles arrive to the hotel when you need to travel to the sports center and also where we could find buggies that you can take to and from the beach hotel next door. 
Our room was ready, and it was time for us to unpack and explore the hotel facilities. Our room was so cozy and modern and we even got a bowl of fresh fruits and a welcome note which was lovely. The only thing about our room was that we weren't given the best of views, we recommend when booking a room at the JA Lake View hotel is to book the lake view side but if you're not too bothered about balcony views then you don't need to request it. 
After exploring the room we decided to take the shuttle bus to the shooting range, this has been something we have always wanted to try and it's just a few minutes away from the hotel. It was a memorable experience and it gives you such an adrenaline rush, we can't wait to visit the shooting range again. 
Later that evening we had reservations at the well known authentic Indian restaurant, Kinara by Vikas Khanna. The restaurants interior was lovely, we even got to sit outside next to the fire pit display, it was gorgeous. The staff were lovely and very well trained on all dishes on the menu it was very impressive and educational. Our servers recommended a few dishes which helped us choose what to try. The dishes we had were phenomenal, from the texture, flavours and the presentation was mind blowing. We left the restaurant extremely happy with our visit to Kinara, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. 
Our night didn't end there, we made our way to Bibe rooftop bar inside the hotel. We could hear the music as soon as we came out the lift, the bar looked great, so modern and chic. A member of staff called Hamudi showed us to our table, he was talkative and kept us laughing most the night. We love it when staff make the effort to ensure you're having a good time. 
We had the best nights sleep that night, we sunk into the soft pillows and duvet. The bed was very comfy, and it was so peaceful, no noise or bright lights anywhere. 
We woke up nice and early to catch breakfast down at the 81 buffet restaurant. Staff once again welcomed us with big smiles and bright personalities. As we were one of the first hotel guests at breakfast, we got seats with an amazing view of the lake, golf course and the sunrise slowly hitting the pal trees, it was beautiful. The buffet was nicely spread out and presented and there were quite a few options to choose from. We weren't too impressed with the British cooked breakfast as the beans looked pale and uncooked, the egg didn't look that appetizing and the beef bacon didn't look too great either. We gave our comments to the hotel so it can be improved. Everything else looked amazing and tasted great. We generally enjoyed the selection they had there, cold and hot food and lots of healthy options too. We also really liked seeing the milkshake in milk bottles, who doesn't like milkshake in the morning, yum! 
As we were enjoying our stay so much, we asked for a later check out which was easily done. As we had more time, Kate wanted to try something relaxing that morning, which meant a visit to the spa next to the JA Beach hotel. As we mentioned earlier the hotel provides buggy services, to and from the JA Beach hotel. A buggy arrives every 30 minutes and as we made our way to get on a buggy, there was one waiting for us. The driver put some music on and drove nice and slow for us to enjoy the views and the wildlife you might be lucky enough to see around both hotels. The spa offers so many different types of massages, you have plenty to choose from. Kate had a back massage for 30 minutes, with the smell of the massage oils, the dim lighting and peaceful spa music, it was heavenly. The massager was super friendly and she made you feel so comfortable. 
After the spa we reached back at the JA Lake View hotel to relax by the beautiful infinity pool for a couple of hours. With no surprise the staff by the pool were amazing. So upbeat and attentive, they made sure all pool guests were looked after. We loved the music by the pool bar, made us get into the vacation mood.
We obviously couldn't stay at this hotel forever unfortunately, so we eventually went back to the room  to pack and then to check out. The check out was simple and we were thanked by the lobby staff and the valet staff once we left the hotel. The overall service at the Lake View hotel was superb, it just makes the whole experience memorable. We have already told family and friends to visit this new hotel soon as the weather is perfect for a mini staycation right now. 
Thank you JA Lake View hotel for having us and we can't wait to come back.
