Fitness Fun in Dubai UAE

Fitness Spa Vacation


Ready for some wintertime fun but finding that the months just aren’t going by fast enough to bring it on?

You might want to consider a fitness spa vacation to Ski Dubai!

With five snow-packed slopes and the world’s first indoor black-diamond run, Ski Dubai is a winter sports lover’s paradise that is perfect for honeymoon travel and celebration vacations!

The massive facility is 25 stories high, and can accommodate 1,500 guests. It boasts ski, snowboard and toboggan rentals and a 3,000-square-meter snow park that’s just for play. More amazing is that this “Resort” is covered with real snow all year round!

You don’t have to worry about ski clothing either. Ski Dubai has thought of it all and offers guests the use of winter clothing, along with the equipment.

After enjoying a day on the “slopes” you can retreat to the adjoining hotel where you can relax in the full service luxury Softouch Spa, and feel your body & soul embrace one another in pure bliss. Then enjoy a delicious meal and perhaps some shopping at the adjoining Mall of Emirates before you retreat to your “Ski Chalet” for a relaxing night’s sleep overlooking the Ski Dubai Resort!

Next time you’re longing for wintertime fun in the heat of summer, this might just be the ideal spa vacation package perfect for you!

Give Travel N Relax a call to set up a Ski Dubai holiday, or another unique vacation experience! We’ll help you see the world in a whole new way!

Happy Holiday’s From Walt Disney World!

Aurora Travel Agents - Travel N Relax


In our last Disney Holidays post we took a look at the many fun holiday season activities for Disneyland vacation guests who might want to enjoy a California holiday vacation.

Here we turn our attention to the East Coast and sunny Florida to see what holiday activities Walt Disney World vacation guests might be able to enjoy.

Here in Orlando, similar activities occur begin November 8, 2013 and run through January 4, 2014. Some of the special events Disney World holiday events you don’t want to miss include:

• The Candlelight Processional
• Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
• Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade
• The Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights
• Holiday “Sleigh” Rides at Fort Wilderness

As with Disneyland, the classic Disney World holiday favorites such as Cinderella Castle dream lights, Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, “Holiday Wishes” fireworks show and Celebrate the Season and Totally Tomorrowland Christmas shows will be available.

Also, like Disneyland, some of the Walt Disney World holiday events also require special reservations. As past Disney cast members and Disney travel specialists, Travel N Relax can advise on the best booking options to maximize your fun on your Walt Disney World vacation and make it an extra special holiday experience.

In part three of our series we will look at Disney Cruise Line vacations and the special holiday experiences Disney offers here!

Sit Down … You’re an Idiot

Aurora Travel Agency - Travel N Relax


In the category of bizarre travel news stories of the day, an article crossed our desk today telling of a recent Air India flight from London to Mumbai that was accommodating a small group tour.

A female passenger headed towards her celebration vacation was five hours into the flight when she decided she would like to watch a nice movie on the inflight entertainment unit. She adjusted various switches and buttons but discovered that the unit was malfunctioning and offered no response other than a screen that kept going blank.

To her surprise, the next thing she knew a message popped up reading: “The selection is not currently available. Please try again.” It then continued at the bottom of the screen : “Lie low…Sit down you idiot!”

As you might expect the passenger complained to the cabin crew who apologized and, while uncertain of what happened, are suspecting it was an English subtitle of a Hindi movie that froze on the screen when the server went offline. The airline also noted it could be the work of a disgruntled employee. The matter has been taken up with concerned authorities for rectification.

Either way we are curious how you would respond if you were on a group vacation (or on individual travel) and a similar message popped up in front of you? Would such a message allow you to “Travel N Relax?” We’ll be interested to see your comments below!
