[ kidnapped ]

THANKS SO much for all of your sweet birthday wishes!

I thought I'd fill you in on where I ended up during my birthday kidnapping. I packed my overnight bag and we headed out on the road. Before I knew it, we were headed to Abu Dhabi...


And we ended up here...


The St. Regis is a brand new resort and spa on the gorgeous sandy shores of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. We arrived late in the afternoon but I managed to snap a few pics as we walked the grounds before the sun went down...



Because it was late in the day for tanning, yet too early for dinner, it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves as we walked around. The soft sand seemed to go on forever and there was also a golf course right along the shore at one end of the resort.

Walking through the hotel, there were interesting, luxurious touches everywhere...



But my favourite part about staying in a beautiful hotel is seeing the room and how it's been decorated...



The best thing by far was the bathroom that ran the entire length of the room with a gorgeous deep tub, 2 vanity areas, a huge shower and an enclosed WC...


and of course all the little luxuries...


A delicious, candlelight dinner out on the restaurant terrace with live jazz and a relaxing day soaking in the rays the following day, it felt like we had escaped on an incredible holiday away. 


Definitely the best birthday ever.
