Marriott Bonvoy Moments™
Stay at the Ritz, drive a Maserati for 3 days in Dubai.
Half a million points, give or take.
I would love to do that. I’m actually planning a similar itinerary to AUH, DXB, MCT (but longer stays) at some of those same properties, plus throw in Bulgari Dubai & The Nile RC in Cairo...
The RC RAK Al Wadi Desert has these Bedouin tent rooms that look amazing!
Glad to see you will be roughing it in the desert. :-)
I hope you’re planning a Christmas trip for your Bedouin tent stay. In February when I went one year, it was 85-90.
Honestly I’m thinking of doing sometime in Jul-Sep when it’ll be 110-120 degrees, because many of the Lux places really come down in price. But I’m doing an analysis...! Al Maha is pretty consistent throughout the year at 4000 AED/night but those RC Al Wadi Desert tents can be half that & include breakfast, for instance. I’m also considering Grand Hills Luxury Collection just outside of Beirut.
I really LOVE the places and properties that you guys aspire to (and most successfully conquer!) and I’m with you on pricing... Why I am often motivated to travel in the shoulder and even off season myself. But I don’t think I could do those lux tents in 120 weather. Then again, those Emiratis have enough money that they could just about make anything happen, including air conditioning out on the dunes, so who knows!?
Sound like a great trip, sadly only 100k points in the bag. Still, except for the big SUV Maserati, if I got in, they would probably have to cut off the roof to get me out!
Awesome! Who said travel isn’t glamorous?
It is,especially, for those who have the money to do it anyway!
