  1. Hey just wanted to add to the list of things you can do on the weekend. Every Friday Best Western Premier in khuwair offers a sumptuous Brunch. Also kids get to eat and swim for free. Its awesome coz they have a small indoor pool as well as their adults indoor pool. Food is also really good and best of all its only 6.900 for each adult. I think its a steal deal!!

  2. Oh wow, truly indoor pool!

  3. I would not describe the Friday brunch at the Hyatt as great...- I had a Friday brunch there in June, and was not impressed - nor were the others in our group who attended.
    I believe the Crown Plaza seafood night and the Chedi brunch provide a higher quality / better selection of foods.
    Also the Mokha cafe has a poor layout for buffet... its a shame - but I beleive the food in teh Hyatt has really declined since 2012, not sure why - but I guess the change of cheifs from Europe to South Asia has something to do with it...

  4. The Hyatt has slipped back a lot over the last few years. The Crowne Plaza seafood night has gone past it's tipping point I think. It is too expensive and they are trying to cram too many people in.
    Can't speak for The Chedi brunch as have never been. Even Olivo's seems to have slipped a bit. The More Cafe buffet is good though but no booze innit.
