Sharjah – just the name reminds you of amazing cricket matches between India and Pakistan played since the ’80s! The city in the middle of the desert had the unique distinction of hosting maximum number of Cricket One Day Internationals in the world! Now Sharjah has become the gateway to the Arab world and it’s main tourist attraction too! If you are ever around Sharjah either for transit or for visit, you must absolutely visit Centro Sharjah which is one of the best and affordable hotels in the area.

If you alight in Sharjah International Airport, either to catch a transit flight or to go to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, it would be worth your while to have a layover stay at Rotana’s Centro Sharjah hotel just adjacent to the airport. What I liked as soon as I entered was the huge atrium which was very inviting and spacious. It had lot of elements of the Arab world like palm trees, exquisite paintings and was really cool even in the hot Arab summer.

Perched in close proximity to the Sharjah International airport and the SAIF zone business hub, the hotel is the perfect haven for the next generation traveller offering style, sophistication and value. Centro by Rotana won the Best Budget Hotel in 2012 during the Business Travellers Award Middle East. It’s not too tough to understand why. The rooms are spacious for 1 or 2 travelers who are primarily traveling on business or are going via transit. The rooms were very tastefully done with artistic decor and drapes.

We arrived at Kuala Lumpur for the celebration of our #HalfADecade Marriage Anniversary! We immediately headed to Westin Kuala Lumpur which hosted our stay. The Westin KL is a perfect place for tourists seeking beauty, luxury, comfort, and convenience in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

Westin KL provided travel from airport to the hotel which was really welcome after a long night of travel via Air Asia flight from Bangalore to Kuala Lumpur! We arrived in style at Westin Kuala Lumpur and check-in was a very smooth process which was done directly in our room.

A Warm Welcome From Westin KL Staff.

Westin KL Kids Club Welcomed Reyansh. With balloons and chocolate creations!

Living areas featured elegant wood floors, a cream-colored sofa covered with colorful pillows, and a glass coffee table.

We could relax with a 46-inch flat screen TV with a DVD/CD player in bedroom. Westin KL arranged a crib for Reyansh so that he could sleep in it comfortably. King-sized Westin Blissful and Comfortable Bed and an oasis of lush sheets, down cushioning, and a patented pillow-top mattress.

Separate bedroom in the Suite! Marble floors and counters as well as windows for overlooking the city.

Westin view from Bathtub! Just Amazing, Reyansh enjoyed bathing in it.

Lunch at Prego! Scallops and Crab were superb and lip-smacking! Scallops were soft and had fleshy texture and delicately mild sweet flavor. The crab was colorful and tasted extremely well. We loved it!

Enjoyed SuperFoodsRx Brunch, Live Cooking Show near Splash Pool!

Met Westin SuperFoodsRx Chef! Very polite and well mannered.

Westin Kids Club! The Westin Family Kids Club is an interactive environment that offers fun, games, and educational activities. Rey enjoyed his time there; we got a little break too!

Bon Appetit Lunch at Westin! We had Eggs Benedict, Museli, milkshake and Grilled Chicken. Tasty and distinct flavored dishes.

Eggs Benedict, poached eggs over bacon and buttered toasted English muffin, topped with Hollandaise sauce.

Muesli is a fiber and protein-rich brunch based on raw, rolled oats. Very healthy brunch milkshake!

Grilled Chicken was marinated with a unique blend of seasonings and grilled for a tender and juicy backyard-grilled taste. My all time favorite, I just love non-veg!

Our #HalfADecade Marriage Anniversary Celebration!

Westin KL surprised us with the anniversary cake, and that gesture touched me! The cake was marvelous and DELICIOUS! Thank you, Westin KL.
