Out in the Arabian Sea

It’s almost a week since this happened. Ha, time flies too fast, and you don’t even realize it – in my case, it is when I sit to narrate my experiences to all, and find how vague my memory has become that I realize it.

Nevertheless, there are some experiences I truly want to share, and this is one of those. Last Friday, myself, and a group of other fabulous ladies were invited to spend an afternoon on a luxury yacht. I didn’t dream of going on a luxury yacht anytime soon. Well, it wasn’t on my bucketlist ever! However, after my experience I think you should add it on yours if you haven’t.

Here in Qatar, the weather is turning to be a lot better, and it’s the season of outdoor activities! Our journey on the water started earlier than usual – that is because the yacht was docked at The Pearl, and access there by road had been blocked. So we got on a dhow from Katara, and sailed towards The Pearl. From there, just a minute’s walk away our luxurious yacht “Ventura I” was waiting for us. Captain Bianca and Marielle was there to welcome us onboard- we walked in through a fancy open deck to a fully air conditioned cabin with stylish interiors, and lush seats.


I wasn’t having a very great start as a little bit of heat exposure had given me a slight headache. I was skeptical about how the journey would turn out inspite of all the facilities onboard.

Once, the yacht started sailing towards the Corniche, we were allowed to go out into the open deck, and enjoy the weather, and the views as it turned better, and better. A little into the sailing, and my headache was all gone, and all I could remember was the laughter, the views, and the breeze on my face. We got to see the Museum of Islamic Arts, and the Richard Serra’s work of art – ‘7’ .




This luxury yacht experience was one that came my way unexpectedly just like when I had dinner in the sky, and got on a tractor. As they say, the most unexpected of times makes way for the best of memories.

More about the yacht “Ventura I”

  • It is three decked
  •  The lower most deck has two luxurious bedrooms with attached bath. One of them with a double bed which you would definitely mistake for a hotel room, and one with two single bed.
  • The middle deck has a more living room feel – one open area and one lounge like where you have a stereo system, and TV screen
  • Perfect for day cruising for up to 12 people
  • The upper deck is open, and has day beds, and an open lounge as well
  • If you like to travel fast, the yacht will cruise at over 50kph.
  •  If you prefer a slower pace, the yacht is beautifully smooth with very little noise.






Now would you like to experience the same? Dial +97470052949 or visit  www.pinkladycharters.com to book your luxury cruise.

Here is a break down of their rates:

  • 2 hours – QAR 4000
  • 3 hours – QAR 5500
  • 6 hours – QAR 9000

They also have a weekday special of QR 5000 for 4 hours which I think is an absolute steal.

P.S : I did experience a bit of swaying of my head once I was offboard the yacht. That is what sea sickness feels like I realized. I was okay after I slept and woke up. So, that’s not to worry!

Have you been on a luxury cruise? Tell me where, and how was your experience in comments.

I was a guest of the Pink Lady Charters. However, all pictures, and experiences are my own

    So glamorous! The photo of the bird towels is adorable. We’ve been itching to go on a cruise ever since our Halong Bay trip was canceled in Vietnam. This stokes our craving even more 🙂

    Ventura I totally looks fabulous and lush. I love the beach but I easily get sea sick while traveling on sea. 🙁 I love how you capture the sunset on your photos too, it’s giving drama to the corporate jungle. 🙂

    Wow, it looks amazing. I would love to be able to go on a yacht like this, hopefully one day. Glad you started feeling better and I enjoyed your day, I would certainly be on the seasickness tablets but am sure I would be fine on the top deck looking out to sea 🙂

    Ho, ly, crap. That is one luxurious yacht, a triple-decker?! You had me at that first picture of the interior- it looks FABULOUS. Glad you were able to enjoy the experience even though you weren’t feeling the best! My husband gets sea-sick super easily too so I feel for you.

    This is so luxurious and glamorous! I love the bedroom and that deck with the view! This is certainly a perfect way to spend quality time with your loved one! My hubby and I are going on a Halong Bay cruise next month and I hope it will be as gorgeous as this!

    This kind of a cruise is on my “if I ever win the lottery” bucket list. It all looks so luxurious. I’d love to spend a night aboard and watch the sunrise in the morning! What a fantastic day this must have been!

    What a fun way to spend the day doing something different from the usual. The views must have been exhilarating. I wish i get an opportunity some day to experience this kind of pure luxury on water.

Yesterday I received this classic pair of sandals from @adeoleather with the most thoughtful details added to it while delivering.
The personalised dustbag, the beautiful rose, the little cards , everything. 😍
Also, I am in love with every design they have made so far in their collection and the colors - Timeless Style and Chic Looking, wouldnt you want a pair for yourself?
The price is a steal. I am literally eyeing for my next pair from them too.😅

Reliving memories that I have had as I write a blog post is something that happens naturally.
I always try and reimagine the moment and the exact feeling I experienced. And right now, I would really wish you knew how it felt to be here at that exact moment.A moment in time from my memories at Dhigali spa .

I am normally never one to go close to animals because I am scared of them. Sometime their beauty is so captivating. As this creature was in my way and I saw so much beauty in it, I had to capture it with my lens.
As I sit and ponder, there isnt anything 'ugly' around us if we see beauty in it.
