· Partnership cemented at an awareness campaign with key stakeholders at the Al Zohra Mangrove area

Amadeus is partnering with ATS Travel, an award-winning travel management company in the Middle East, to launch its sustainable drive under the brand ‘ATS Go Green’ in collaboration with Olive Gaea, a Dubai-based start-up providing Net Zero solutions across the MENATI region.

Amadeus is committed to working towards environmental sustainability, encouraging industry-wide progress to help achieve its net zero targets and securing long-term growth and prosperity for the travel industry. The company has set a target of zero emissions by 2050, with the ambition to achieve this by 2030.

The ‘ATS Go Green’ initiative reiterates the commitment by all parties to reach their environmental sustainability goals and be the front runners in the travel industry providing tailor-made reports on Co2 emissions for corporates.

Saleem Sharif, Deputy Managing Director at ATS Travel said, “The partnership will allow Amadeus, ATS Travel and Olive Gaea to work closely together and offer clients offsetting opportunities and inspire sustainable living. The collaboration saw all parties pledging to develop a more sustainable future with participants planting mangroves at the local Al Zohra mangrove ecosystem.  Participants were briefed on the sustainability project and taken on a Kayak tour to the mangrove plantation area with reusable water bottles and eco-friendly utilities. We invited our corporate clients and UAE National airlines representatives to join the event and support the cause.”

“The increase of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere today is a growing concern within the travel and tourism sector. We aim to be the front runners in the travel sector providing custom carbon footprint reports for Air, Land, and hotels to our travel corporates. Our collaboration will enable us to go beyond just greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reports in the future, and provide cost effective offsetting options,” added Saleem.

Ernesto Sanchez Beaumont, Managing Director, Amadeus Gulf said, “This partnership supports our approach to transforming business operations, helping customers and driving the industry toward a more sustainable future. Enabling our customers to engage in green initiatives, such as this one from ATS Travel and Olive Gaea, and working with the global travel community on sustainability reflects our commitment to being at the forefront of change.”

“The UAE Government has given a lot of emphasis to sustainability, Go Green drives and eco-tourism. It is hence critical to understand the direct impact of travel choices on carbon footprint,” added Ernesto.

Vivek Tripathi, Founder and CEO of Olive Gaea said, “We are delighted to partner with ATS Travel’s sustainability initiative “ATS GO GREEN” supported by Amadeus. With local and global organizations racing against time to address climate change and reach Net Zero Carbon targets, we are pleased to play our part and help them take climate action.  Not only will they minimize their environmental impact and support new plantation activities, they will also empower their clients with innovative and sound sustainability tools. 

“Change starts with awareness; that’s why we trust our reporting and carbon offsetting initiatives will go a long way in fostering a greener travel industry in the UAE. The initiative will help both corporate and individual travellers assess their environmental impact and take positive climate action amid rising concerns over global warming,” added Vivek.

Timeless Elegance

The Langham, London

Shereen Shabnam

London is always a good idea for a holiday and selecting the right hotel depending on what you want to do in the city. On my top three favourites for hotels in London is The Langham. Creating exceptional guest experiences since it opened as Europe’s first grand hotel in 1865, The Langham, London continues to enhance its offerings more than 150 years later.

My favourite activity at the hotel is try an afternoon tea while people watching as it is indeed a hotel that gives you the best of history, luxury and a regal vibe that leaves one with a sense of gratification.

The exquisitely appointed guest rooms and suites are classically styled and evokes a warm residential feel with renowned service that bears the hallmarks of the hotel’s rich heritage that spans three centuries.

The rooms at The Langham are exquisite. The Terrace Suite vaunts imposing views of bustling Regent Street and beyond with its extensive balcony perched on the hotel’s fifth floor. This unforgettable suite, with separate lounge and bedroom, is ideal for longer stays. The airy space fits up to three guests between the bedroom’s king bed and living room, and additional beds are available upon request.

Brimming with comforts for the discerning traveller, the suite includes a full-size work desk, the Langham Blissful Bed, marble bathroom with separate shower and bath, and a bottle of chilled bubbles upon arrival.

Guests in the room will want for nothing thanks to butler service to assist with personal requests such as unpacking suitcases, colour-coding your wardrobe, or organising bespoke itineraries and 24-hour full-service in-room dining.

Bathed in a refined colour palette of regal jewel tones and soft neutrals, summer’s light pours through the terrace’s glass doors into the suite’s living area, creating one of the best destinations for a getaway for families or special occasions.

Palm Court is famed as the birthplace of the afternoon tea tradition, an indulgent ritual that continues today. Artesian is a glamorous bar designed by the acclaimed late David Collins and is a social hub for chic Londoners conjuring up classic and innovative cocktails.

The Landau restaurant offers classically constructed dishes using the finest seasonal ingredients with a contemporary style of presentation. Chuan Spa is a pampering haven and is London’s first luxury hotel spa to incorporate the ancient principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine into its signature treatments and ambience.

The Langham, London was opened in 1865 by HRH The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), as Europe’s first “Grand Hotel”.  From the outset it boasted an unrivalled location at the top of Regent Street and this is still true today with an enviable address in the heart of the West End. And with incredible city views, the plush atmosphere of a grand hotel and Langham’s impeccable hospitality, guests can expect an unforgettable experience.

Traditional culinary experiences: Turkish Village Restaurant

Shereen Shabnam

Recently we ventured to the Award-winning Turkish Village Restaurant to sample their diverse range of unique authentic culinary experiences that included especially curated dishes blending authentic Turkish ingredients and flavors, complete with the much-loved art of Turkish hospitality.

We discovered that the restaurant offers so much more than just good food as we entered the Jumeirah branch of the restaurant. Starting from a retail experience to a selection of delectable food with seasonal flavours and impeccable presentation, we tried different inspiring food concepts, and each was a fun and social culinary experience best enjoyed in a group.

The Turkish Village Restaurant has a capacity for large events that can accommodate over 500 guests over three levels and can curate menus that can be custom made to suit any corporate or family event. When I visited with family, we opted for the a la carte menu as we wanted to try different dishes and each one was better than the next. My favourite was a metre long ‘pide’ or pastry which came with interesting fillings of meat and cheese fresh from the oven.

More recently we ventured with there with a group of friends and tried the Turkish mangal or barbecue that includes staple starters with meat marinated with spices overnight. We selected tender marinated chicken, succulent lamb, beef, kebabs and sausages and prepared the meal together at grill tables that come equipped with a private charcoal barbeque and a custom-made extractor.

The mangal meal was served with salads, fresh bread out of the oven, sauces, cold starters and water or ayran. The Mangal experience can be enjoyed for lunch and dinner at AED 50/- per person that includes charcoal, water, ayran, salad and cold starters on the table while the chicken and meat can be availed from the in-house butcher starting at AED 110/- per kg to share.

We then ended the meal on a sweet note with traditional Turkish sweets that include kunafa, baklava stuffed with cream and pistachios and the creamiest rice pudding in the city. This was the best Turkish culinary experience we have had in Dubai as it offers an authentic dining experience at par with what we normally find in Istanbul or other parts of Turkey.

Before leaving the restaurant, we stopped at the gourmet grocer named Bakkal (Meaning Grocery store in Turkish) on the ground floor for retail therapy. Bakkal features a diverse range of fresh, dried and frozen goods imported from Turkey every week and is a dream store for party lovers looking to get ready snacks that can be prepared easily for large families and intimate parties.

The three level Turkish Village Restaurant is located strategically in Jumeirah 1 (across La Mer, next to Spinneys and the Jumeirah Grand Mosque). It offers a laid-back memorable and interactive dining experience, within a warm and welcoming ambience and is also a one-stop shop for artisanal Turkish products. We left with bags full of Turkish delights and naturally, I got some extra desserts to enjoy at home later.

Turkish Mangal Meets South African Braai

Explore traditional BBQ experiences at Turkish Village Restaurant

One of the most socially interactive culinary experiences the world over is having a barbecue with friends and family and this concept is most popular in South Africa, where a ‘Braai’ or barbecue can be a weekly experience.

In Dubai, the best on table barbecue experience comes in the form of the Turkish Mangal at the award-winning Turkish Village Restaurant where chefs use premium meat, authentic Turkish ingredients and flavors and like the South African Braai, the meat is cooked over sizzling hot coals to bring out the best flavours in the meat.

The atmosphere surrounding a Turkish mangal experience and a Braai is one full of enjoyment and common on weekends, birthdays, national holidays, graduations and on any occasion to celebrate with family and friends.

At Turkish Village Restaurant, diners select premium meat cuts and marinated meat from the restaurant’s in-house butcher to enjoy a feast at grill tables that come equipped with a private charcoal barbeque and a custom-made extractor. The choice of meat includes marinated chicken, kebabs, lamb chops, sausages and beef cubes for guests to prepare the meal together with friends and family.

The Mangal or Braai experience is ideal for gatherings during lunch and dinner at AED 50/- per person that includes charcoal, water, ayran, salads and cold starters on the table while the chicken and meat can be availed starting  at AED 110/- per kg to share. The meal is also served with fresh bread out of the oven, a selection of sauces and water or ayran.

Diners can end the meal on a sweet note with traditional Turkish sweets that include kunafa, milk infused tres-leche cakes, baklava stuffed with cream and pistachios as well as the creamiest baked rice pudding in the city.

The three level Turkish Village Restaurant is located strategically in Jumeirah 1 (across La Mer, next to Spinneys and the Jumeirah Grand Mosque), and in Dubai Festival City Mall promenade overlooking the fountains. It offers a laid-back memorable and interactive dining experience, within a warm and welcoming ambience. It is also a one-stop shop for artisanal Turkish products.

Incredible Iguazu

Shereen Shabnam

Before the pandemic, we ventured to Argentina to get up, close and personal with the famed Iguazu Falls and while there were some great hotels closer to the natural attractions, I spent my nights in Mercure Iguazu surrounded by nature.

The hotel is located in the middle of a natural reserve and built with natural wood and stone that blends in with nature and offers guests a warm ambience. The best part of my stay was a relaxing massage at the spa and relaxation time by the infinity pool surrounded by a forest after a long day at the Cataratas.

After a good nights rest, I spent a full day at the Iguazu National Park which is a total of 55,500 hectares. Surrounded by a lush subtropical rainforest, I enjoyed the majestic Iguazú Waterfalls, the most important and spectacular waterfalls which is also one of the seven wonders of the world.

It is taller than Niagara Falls, twice as wide with 275 cascades spread in a horseshoe shape over nearly two miles of the Iguazu River. It is the most dramatic waterfalls in the world with panoramic walkways.

Via different footbridges, we visited the heart of the waterfalls, appreciating them from different angles and refreshed ourselves with the waterfall drizzle at the bottom.

On the upper circuit, we enjoyed the different viewpoints until we reached the balcony at Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat). Without doubt, this is the most amazing of all falls where water falls down from 80 meters. 

At the end of the excursion, we ventured to the border, which is a stone’s throw away from Brazil and Paraguay. It is incredible to be able to step foot into three countries in one day if adventurous visitors wanted to experience it.

After a long day of exploring nature, it was a delight to come back to the comfort of the hotel. The hotel is located at the heart of the Iryapú Jungle, just 20 minutes from Puerto Iguazu International Airport and close to the region’s main tourist attractions. All the rooms offer free WiFi, balconies, LCD TVs with satellite channels, minibar, room service and hair dryers to guests.

Living by Design – Magical Milan

Shereen Shabnam

All roads lead to Milan – no matter which industry I write for, somehow, I end up in Milan each year.  As Italy’s city of the future, it is a fast-paced metropolis where creativity is big business and looking good is an art form with fashion, food, art and architecture being pillars of life.

I have driven luxury cars here, visited shipyards to look at yachts being conceptualised, attended art and fashion galas, learnt how technology helps motorcycle riders perform better on racetracks and even represented my company in a science centre congress one year.

Milan has an ancient and fascinating history and is an important industrial and cultural centre with its own art collections, an interesting literary heritage and a vibrant social and music scene. It is a city where natural wonders, old world romance and ancient art merge seamlessly with new age design trends, financial hubs and urban steel.

Milan is not just a fashion capital. It attracts as many artists, artisans, and architects as possible and the city boasts an impressive, sustainable architecture with a futuristic skyline modelled by Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind and César Pelli. The city is also home to new start-ups and global companies like Google, Microsoft, Alibaba and Apple.

Architecture is what I appreciate most about Milan. Buildings range from the Renaissance-style Santa Maria delle Grazie church, a Unesco World Heritage Site, to the 19th-century shopping plaza, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The art-nouveau townhouses come with stained-glass windows, detailed floral motifs and ornate metalwork but what fascinates me most is Bosco Verticale (vertical forest), a metropolitan reforestation project devised to regenerate urban biodiversity with trees, shrubs and plants covering luxury apartment buildings.

Art enthusiasts go to Milan for the many museums and art galleries. It is home to one of the most famous Renaissance paintings in history, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper (1494-1498) with unrivalled collections of Italian modernism and one can see works of artists such as Umberto Boccioni and Lucio Fontana as well.

Food in Milan delights all your senses and are typically rich and hearty, with meat, risotto, pasta and pizza taking centre stage. My hosts always recommend dishes where I can sprinkle their famous local cheese on the dishes. When I am attending an event, we always start our evenings with a reception where local cheeses, freshly cut vegetables, crisps, cured meats, olives and local bread are served before dinner.

For travellers looking for great photo opportunities, the imposing gothic cathedral that took nearly six centuries to complete is the perfect backdrop. Visitors can climb up to the rooftop and have sweeping views of the city with close-up views of the menacing gargoyles and intricate spires on the building.

Retail therapy in Milan is a must as the city is home to the biggest names in the fashion industry, such as Valentino, Versace, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and my favourite brand Missoni. I almost cried when the Missoni shop in City Walk across my home closed and I had to venture into the bigger malls to get clothes that were accessible to the masses.

Shopping in Milan is not limited to just clothes, bags and shoes. Milan’s art deco and furniture brands are trendsetters in interior design. The city is a hub for designers, with showrooms, studios and outlets welcoming international buyers all year round.

Performing arts and theatre is a big deal in Italy and Milan is no different. The Teatro alla Scala, built in 1770s is a must visit. I come from a family of theatre buffs with my husband being an award-winning theatre actor and a daughter who studied drama all her life and has attended more theatre shows than movies so the first thing we check out on a holiday is theatre shows.  Teatro alla Scala is a spectacular performance hall with red velvet, brocade and gold elements giving it a lavish ambience.

To get around Milan, try out the yellow tram which is a famous symbol of Milan. Some of the trams running in Milan are versions of the original 19th- and 20th-century designs while some come with wooden interiors, long benches and glass lamps dotted along the ceiling. You can be transported to a bygone era while exploring Milan.

Post pandemic, Milan may just be the first city we will venture to for a dose of the best food, culture, art and of course cars. You can fly there directly with Emirates Airlines or to make up for the lost travel time to different cities during the pandemic, take Turkish Airlines, stop for a few days in Istanbul and get to Milan via Turkey. It is time to discover the world again, albeit safely.

Delightful Dalaman

 By Shereen Shabnam

Some time ago I ventured to Dalaman, situated on the southwestern coast of Turkey, in the Mugla Province with fellow motoring enthusiasts. We were test driving one of the latest Volvo SUV’s and set off from the airport taking in the picturesque sights of beautiful Turkey.

Highlight of my trip was stopping for brunch at Yuvarlakcay. Yuvarlakcay is beautiful river located in the Topgozu Canyon between the provinces of Koycegiz and Ortaca and feeds off the snow waters of the mountain range. It was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have had anywhere in the world. The meal was served to the sound of birds singing and the gentle sound of the river flowing as we sat on majlis style tables afterwards, relaxing with steaming cups of Turkish coffee.

Soon after, I drove to the Golden Key Bördübet, a quaint hotel that was full of surprises after we entered the simple and understated gates. After check in, it was time to relax and enjoy the great weather, amazing beach and unique beauty and peace of the location.

Taking a boat to visit a nearby island for an evening drink and relaxing on the beach was memorable. Golden Key Bordubet sits where the creek meets the sea, snuggled amidst lush trees, with its own private island.  It has meticulously designed buildings and superb guest experiences to ensure that the wondrous nature around is respected and preserved.

The next day we drove to beautiful natural reserve sites in the south coast of Turkey. The area represented a hidden gem in Turkey with the beautiful bay and the unique species of animals and trees.

We stopped for lunch at Akyaka. This unspoilt village with a beautiful setting is one of the most luxurious retreats and destinations in the coastal province. As a coastal township with its own municipality in the Ula district of Muğla Province in southwestern Turkey, the town is a rising center for international tourism.

After a few more hours of driving along coasts, coffee break was at Sakar Hill as it is a tradition to have Turkish coffee after meals. Sakar Hill, a historic location prominent during the Ottoman Empire reign in the 1520s, was used by the army led by Kanuni Sultan Suleyman on their route to their Rhodes conquest.

From cabarets and mud spas to eerie ghost towns, there’s something to delight everyone taking a holiday in Turkey’s Dalaman district. My suggestion is to float in the clear waters of the Blue Lagoon, which reminded me of Fiji.

The Blue Lagoon at Ölüdeniz is among the most photographed places on the Turkish coast, close to forested hills and an idyllic place to take a dip in calm, crystal-clear waters.

You can also explore the ghost town of Kayaköy, a town abandoned since the 1920s or go for lunch after yachting at Göcek, the sailing capital of the Dalaman region where the quayside is lined with smart international and traditional restaurants.

Sarigerme where the Aegean Sea meets the Mediterranean, is great for watersports with waves that appeal to windsurfers, kite-boarders and dinghy sailors. I preferred the mud spa experience at Sultaniye, a spa resort that has been attracting visitors since Roman times.

If you can time it right, I recommend going to Fethiye’s Tuesday market with stalls selling everything from fresh fruit and exotic spices to textiles, jewellery and more. Next stop was Marmaris, a place I loved so much, I have been there twice and the vibe is just incredible, especially with different types of music.

Turkey is indeed a diverse country with stunning beaches, great food, spectacular scenery, ancient history and nightlife to suit all tastes and Dalaman region is as enchanting as the popular destinations like Istanbul and Bodrum. Dalaman is easy to get to with Turkish Airlines from GCC countries, with a stopover in Istanbul.

Salties: The Magic of Food, Music and Good Vibes

Salties Beach Bar and Grill by Grenada Launches its First Indoor Beach Bar Showcasing Sustainability, Accessibility, and the World’s Best Culture of Caribbean Entertainment

Inside the Grenada country pavilion extension, Salties Beach Bar and Grill opens its “lift doors” for the very first time exclusively to Expo 2020 visitors and staff from the first of October 2021.

The indoor Beach Bar & Grill is located on the first floor at the Opportunity District – Caribbean Lounge OS06, in front of Visitor Centre 1 and will be open from 11 am to 2 am on Thursday and Friday and until midnight the rest of the week.
Salties is a Caribbean beach bar, made in Dubai by a new generation of Dubai expats with an international flair, featuring a fresh juice bar and DJ playing music all day long for that notorious Grenada island vibe.

The refreshment prices are affordable with appetizers starting from 25 AED +++ and drinks from 16 AED +++. Everyone in Dubai, whether visiting or working at Expo, can appreciate the event and at the same time be able to enjoy a meal without spending too much.

It is the perfect place for the staff who are living on-site as it provides them with a relaxed ambience where they can listen to music and socialize with their friends and collegues without needing to go into town.
Co-Owner Pietro said, “We are inspired by Dubai’s multicultural Caribbean cuisine, Arab, Greek, Italian, Oriental, and Mexican where you get many appetizers to share collectively at the table. Our portions are enough to taste and appreciate the food, but also enough to try different dishes.”

Pietro built together with a few friends and collaborators a place with sand, sunshine, and shisha. Two terraces with private booths overlook the world within Expo – there’s no better place to relax and call home. Inside is a huge sandbox boasting colourful tables and chairs, sustainably sourced and given a fresh new look and even new names.

Starting from the idea that Dubai is on the beach, a symbol of freedom, guests can take their shoes off and feel the sand through their toes.  The Salties team sourced beautiful furniture which had been abandoned by other people in the past with its own history, modified and transformed them through colours, writings, and repairs and given them a new life naming every piece of furniture with famous places and beaches of Grenada, like Saint George and Castle Hill.

There are little islands within the restaurant that brings pieces of the world together, just like the country of Grenada, famously known as “The Spice Isle”, consisting of the main island of Grenada and 8 satellite islands.

As music is the joy of life that brings people together, every day from 10 am, Salties will be featuring live DJ sets and musical performances playing all kinds of music – from Reggaeton to Latin to Pop. Salties will have different evenings paying a special tribute to every country on their National Day celebrations after 9 pm, so that they can feel at home at Salties and citizens of that country can enjoy special discounts off the total bill.

Salties aims to be the Dubai home away from home for people coming over for the 6-month duration of Expo 2020 whilst at the same time shining the spotlight on sustainability.
