Hi loves! How are you? We are great, just enjoying the great weather in the Netherlands. Lots of you were asking us about our stay at Longevity in Algarve, so we decided to do a blog about it.

As you know, we really LOVE all kind of food, especially sweet stuff, as ice-cream, cookies, chocolate and go on. When Longevity proposed a Juice Detox Short Break, we knew we had to try that! This juice program takes at least three days and cleanse your whole body. It boosts your health with a mild detoxifying diet or juice fasting, cleansing Spa treatments and energizing daily group activities. We knew it would be hard for us, to miss all the sweets and wine for a few days, but we think that a healthy body is also very important, so we gave it a try. We had 5 liquid meals a day and lots of tea and water. It seemed very hard to do, but the ambiance in the resort is so zen and healthy, that you really get motivated. And also, it was great weather, so that helped a lot. We always feel less hungry when it’s hot outside. We really didn’t expect that, but it was really fun to do! Every day, there are different activities organized, as yoga, pilates, stretching, core training, fit ball, zumba, jogging, bike tour and different walks, which you can join, and we really liked that.

The resort itself, is really beautiful, with a huge pool and all these little cute colorful houses. The restaurant is opened for the juices, but they of course also serve (healthy) food, for people who does’t want to do the liquid diet. You can do the diet for 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7. At first, 3 days seemed a lot for us, the always hungry food lovers, but afterwards, we would love to do that for 7 days! It’s really relaxing and we felt soooo recharged after the short stay of 3 days. It was fun to see, that lots of different people join the diet. We have seen lots of girlfriends, doing it together, but also couples and people alone. Young and old. Really cool! We can’t wait to go back for a little longer very soon ❤

Hi loves! How are you doing? We are great, just got back from our vacay in Portugal and oh we miss it already. One of our absolutely favorites stays where at Onyria Palmares. As soon as we arrived, we fall in love with this place. We had such a warm welcome, a little tour through the resort and a glass of champagne. They absolutely know how to give their guests the best feeling.

Our stay was absolutely incredible. The rooms are decorated in soft colors (LOVE!!!), very stylish, and have everything you may need during the stay. All of them offer a generous balcony, both in space and amazing views of the Portugese sea ❤ We spend most of our stay on that balcony! The view is just breathtaking.. 

The pool was our second favorite place in the resort. Since it’s not a huge pool, we thought it would be very crowded during the day and that we couldn’t enjoy the peacefulness of the place. But nothing was further from the truth. Even though the resort was completely fully booked, we had the feeling that we had everything for ourselves. Not many hotels manage to give that feeling, so well done! ❤ We are the kind of people who could stay at the pool all day, and just relax, cause it’s vacay! Yet we have decided that we need to visit the beach at least once during our stay, since Portugese beaches are soooo gorgeous. It looked pretty far, but it seemed to be just a 15 min walk, and for lazy people like us, they bring you down with a golf buggy. It’s great to drive along the green of 27 holes of they unique golf course ❤ To arrive at almost empty beach, a dream! 

Since it was just a short drive to Lagos, we have planned to drive down there for dinner every day. However, we didn’t expect that the hotel restaurant would be so good, that we stayed in almost every night, haha! They have a great menu, witch cozy ambiance and of course, great view! 

Nestled in the green go the fairways, with its phenomenal views of the Lagos Bay, and a great service, our stay was really indescribable. You guys can check them out HERE! We actually can’t wait to go back ASAP!

Two Seasons Bayside Resort 

Hi sweeties! We were actually not done with showing you Two Seasons in Coron. Before we have left Coron, we had to stay at least one night in Coron Town. We wanted to do little shopping, have dinner in the town and visit the local spa’s. Two Seasons Bayside is a perfect place to stay while you’re in town. There is a huge pool with sunbeds to relax during the day, facing the bay of Coron Town, which is really awesome! The days can be pretty hot in the Philippines, so we were really glad with the pool. They have these rooms with an AMAZING view over the bay. We were so happy that we booked one of those. Waking up to this view is all you can wish for right? And that bathtub.. During our two days stay, we have used that one over 4 times, haha! You guys should check them out!

Hi loves! How are you? So many of you asked about our route in the Philippines, and we didn’t even tell you the best part yet. Whenever you are planning a trip to the Philippines, you can’t skip El Nido and Coron. Coron was a real paradise. We have stayed in Two Seasons Coron Island, and that was pure magic. This beautiful resort is known as the first eco-friendly luxury resort in Coron.

Two Seasons is located about 20 km from Coron town and can be reached by a private speed boat from the resort. The boat is really luxury and the ride feels actually as a trip itself. Once we arrived, we realized that the resort is on a private island. Among the myriad things to look forward to is a sandbar connecting to a islet, a vibrant house reef, lush tropical gardens, a 200-meter west-side beach, and another 200-meter east-side beach with mangroves.

When we arrived, we couldn’t believe our eyes; the beach is white and the water super clear, picture perfect if you ask us. The mini villa’s are well occupied and the mini bar is included. We had a jacuzzi on our terrace, with a sea view.. Make sure to request room 101, cause that’s absolutely a dream.

Once we arrived in the resort, we realized the Coron Town is a little to far to visit during the day, and we were afraid we would get bored in the few days that we were staying on this private island. However, there are so many activities which you can do during your stay, that you won’t have time to be bored. There is an Aqua Sports Center, where you can get yourself a snorkel, kayak, standup paddle and so on. The water is so clear and there is so much waterlife, so we have snorkeled for hours, kayaked around the island and tanned on a standup paddle. Two Seasons offers a lot of different tours, so we have visited different lagoons and islands nearby. There is also a spa, a library, a gym and a DVD Player (with lots of movies) in every room, and a KARAOKE BAR.. The restaurant has such a extensive menu that you can eat something different every day for a month! No need to leave the island at all, haha!

An absolute recommendation when you visit Coron!

Have a lovely night babes.

Hi babes! How are you? Today is the day that we are sorting out all the Philippines pictures, and oh it’s going to be a very long day, haha! We are not sure what always happen, but every time we see palmtrees, white beach a clear water we get all nuts and can’t stop taking pictures. Siargao Island was for sure on of such places. At first we wanted to skip Siargao, since it was a bit further than all the other places which were on our list, but we were so happy we didn’t.

We stayed in the best resort, Siargao Bleu. The location is just perfect, on the most beautiful side of the island, close to Cloud 9 (a famous surfschool) and surrounded by lots of great restaurants. The resort offers a free pick up from the airport, with their luxury car. A great welcome! The resort is really amazing, with a huge pool and its floating cottages“ around it. Palmtrees are everywhere and the nature is well cared for. The rooms are incredible, with outdoor veranda area with a couch and hammock, and a direct pool access from the room ❤ What else could you wish for?

Every day we have started with a yummy breakfast from the huge buffet, and they for sure had everything you can think of! Pancakes, waffles, fresh juices and lots of fresh watermelon. After the breakfast it was always chill time in the hammock and a dip in the pool. Siargao is a perfect place for surfing, but you can also do standup paddling at the beach of the resort ❤ The best way to relax and tan! Standup boards and bikes are available at the reception, and they don’t charge for that, so you can go as often as you want. We love carefree vacations.

We were on Siargao for 4 days (never enough) and one of the days we decided to book a boat for island hopping. We booked it at the resort and we were so happy. We had a private boat with our own butler, who guided us around the island and prepared our lunch on the most beautiful island. It was an experience we will for sure never forget ❤

If you guys are planning a trip to the Philippines (if you’re not, you should start), for sure don’t skip Siargao Island. Siargao Bleu Resort is for sure the best place to stay ❤

Hi loves! How are you? Lots of you girls have asked us about the hotel that we stayed in in Dubai, and it’s just too amazing to just tell you, so here is our blogpost. As you guys know, we really love the style of Versace with all of the flashy prints and bright colors, and Palazzo Vesace was for sure the best choice. Alle the rooms are steeped in classic Italian design, and reflect the true essence of the brand really well. We have requested a pink room (can you imagine us dancing when we discovered that there are such rooms), and we were so happy when we got it. The rooms are super chique, they are furnished with the Versace Home Collection and so classy. The bathrooms feature handcrafted mosaic and Carrara marble, and is just gorgeous. While our stay of four nights, we have both been in bath over 6 times. The entire hotel is just gorgeous. it is a Neoclassical, Italian, masterpiece with subtle traces of Arabian architecture, and matches our style so well. We actually didn’t want to leave during our stay and we had lots of days off, haha. The pools are huge and you have three different to choose from, so you can always find a quiet spot. That’s perfect when you want to take some pics, without others on it ❤

While our stay, we stayed in for every lunch and dinner, since there were so many different restaurants to choose from. On weekends there is brunch at Giardino, and that’s for sure a thing that you can’t miss. The buffet is HUGE and there is everything you can think of. Fresh made sushi, Indian food, Chinees, Italian, all kind of fresh fish and meat, burgers and so on.. The dessert buffet was too big to snap it in one video, haha! After the brunch we were in food coma for 6 hours, and oh it was so worth it. You can also choose for a package including cocktails (that’s what we did), and oh my, it was the best. We would absolutely recommend the brunch, even though you’re not staying at Palazzo Versace, you really won’t regret it.

Have a lovely afternoon babes!

28 Beautybar

Hi loves! How are you doing? Hope you’re doing great. Just before our trip to the Philippines, we had the most relaxing weekend at Hotel Assen in the Netherlands. We were so lucky to be treated as real princesses with such a warm welcome. At arriving they told us that just after dinner, they had a spa treatment booked for us. Could our stay at Hotel Assen start any better? We don’t think so! So 28 Beautybar was the place we went to after a delicious dinner at their new restaurant. The Beautybar is located at Van der Valk hotels Assen. It was a place where we could really relax and enjoy a well deserved massage. Always gives us so much energy afterwards! The products they used are Dutch based, which is always very cool. The brand is called Medex is perfect for the skin and your mood. The salon is open all days, except Tuesdays. So a real recommendation when you are thinking of a weekend away. The offer different treatments and the salon is owned by the most nicest person! Have a look at all the treatments, there will be something for everyone!

Hi babes! How are you? We are great, just flew in to Dubai for a few days, after a great trip to the Philippines. One of our favorite places to visit was for sure Panglao, and especially the Donatela Hotel. We had such a great time. The hotel was built with nature in mind, and you experience that everywhere around you. Nestled in a natural landscape of 7,5 hectare of botanical gardens, the private villas are a dream ❤ They are designed to give privacy, luxury and space for the guests, and they for sure do. Each villa has it’s own private garden, and we have for sure used it. One of the afternoons we decided to have a long picnic with lots of food. The staff was very happy to help us with the set up and arranged all the food. There were pastries, fresh fruit, sandwiches and a fresh coconut ❤ For sure one of our favorite afternoons in the Philippines. We also really like the design of the villas. It is based on the traditional Ifugao Tribal House concept found in the northern part of the Philippines, which gives a really cozy natural touch to the resort.

Since few of the villas has it’s own private pool (!), the main pool was not crowded at all during our stay. We had so many chances to be absolutely alone at the huge pool, with a bar and very good wifi ❤ While chilling at the pool, you hear lots of great birds. We walked around the property to see where the noises came from, and we found a mini zoo ❤ With lots of rescued animals, as cats, a bearcat, parrots and lots of other birds. Really awesome!

When you are visiting Panglao, you guys need to check out Donatela Hotel. The resort also boasts a fine dining restaurant, wine room, and a variety of activities, such as horseback riding, and spa treatments, apart form the tours and attractions of the island.

Hi babes! How are you’re doing? We hope you’re great. Here we will show you some pics we shot at the beautiful La Sultana, a very pretty hotel in Marrakech. The moment you’ll enter the hotel, you will understand what we mean. Especially the pool is breathtaking, just look at it. We could lay down and chill on the sunbeds the whole day.. Sounds like a waist of a precious Marrakech day, but when you are in such gorgeous surrounding, where else would you rather be?! You can have lunch around the pool and just enjoy the sun. They also have the most gorgeous spa, where you can enjoy a hamman treatment and a good massage. We had the signature treatment and it was definitely one of the best days ever! Definitely recommend that when visiting Marrakech. Plus all of that, the food is also super good and tasty. So if you don’t feel like leaving the hotel its totally fine! You will have the best time ❤

Now its time to appreciate this gorgeous red beauty. Wooow we are OBSESSED! Its from L’Atelier Paris, a lovely French brand. The leather is super nice, its from the same makers where the Hermes bags are made. Sooo yeah if that isn’t the coolest ever! Its soooo amazing.. the sofest leather. L’Atelier is an independent Parisien brand of luxury bags and accessoires. The cool thing is that the brand is born out of the desire to escape from logos and return to the essentials, what makes a piece an extra ordinary one. Its because of the finesse of materials, elegance and comtemporary lines. They stand the test of time the brand says. And we cant agree more. Here are some close ups as well. So if you are looking for a great Christmas gift, this brand is perfect!! You would make anyone happy with a timeless bag like this. Now its time to start our day! Happy Tuesday loves!

 

Riad Abracadabra ✨

Hi loves! How are you doing? Many of you asked where we were staying when we were in the city of Marrakech. We really love the Moroccan style and the riads are just perfect for the city. One of our favorites is Riad Abracadabra. The riad is located only few minutes walking from the burning Jemaa el Fna square. And still it is very relaxing area. We really loves the style of the riad, it’s a mix of Moroccan style with classic, and we really loved that combination. It has only 8 rooms, which makes your stay really personal. The staff is very dedicated and nothing is too crazy to ask. We really felt welcome at this place.

The riad has a central patio, which serves as a distributor with a central fountain that radiates peace to the rest of the riad with a sound of water. Perfect place te relax and read a book after a busy day at the Marrakech souks. That was however not our favorite part of the riad.. The roof terrace was just incredible. Overlooking the rooftops of Marrakech and at the same time the snowy peaks of the Atlas mountains. To make it even better, there is a swimming pool on the terrace and lots of sunbeds and hammocks to enjoy the Moroccan weather to the fullest. We had our breakfast every day on the terrace and we have really enjoyed it. As you guys know, we really LOVE breakfast with a great view. The terrace was absolutely our favorite spot at Riad Abracadabra. Also great for sunset, with a cocktail in your hand or a Moroccan mint tea of course. Wish for that right now actually.. Have a great day loves.
