Travel diary with Creative Director, Jess Reid


Our last trip before covid was to Abu Dhabi. Escape with us to the most beautiful hotel in the world, Qasr Al Sarab to capture our Kaleidescope campaign. Read on as creative director, Jessica shares an excerpt from her travel diary, documenting her unforgettable trip with her family in tow.


Qasr Al Sarab, Abu Dhabi

Located in the Liwa desert also known as ‘The Empty Quarter’, Qasr Al Sarab sits on a huge stretch of unbroken sand desert that has bested kings, adventurers, and nomads for thousands of years.

Travel Diary:
Creative Director, Jessica Reid 

"The sand dunes were the most breathtaking sight I have ever seen. Coming from Australia, I would compare it to looking out at the ocean. But instead your are looking at waves of sand as far as the eye can see. Every night at around 4pm we would climb the huge dunes and spend hours in awe of the sand and the magnificent sunset. It was the most exhilarating feeling. It was just breathtaking; a view you could never tire of."
