Do you ever feel like you don't take enough vacation days from work? All that thinking and working late nights makes your biceps tighten. It's time for a change! To stay fresh, creative and motivated it's important to get away for an adventure every now and then. Take a day trip and head off to sunny Sharjah, UAE for a soothing vacay. The drive may seem way too long or short but you’ll be glad to relax at the Act Hotel on a beautiful summer day. Here’s a checklist of the activities you could engage in to reduce your inner inhibitions at one of the premium hotels in Sharjah.

Indulge in international cuisines at the best 5 Star hotel in Sharjah

Act Hotel is no exception. The Oscar restaurant offers an amazing view of the sparkling Arabian Gulf and the impressive buffets Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes in the buffet, combining Continental, Arabic and Far Eastern flavours.

The best way to start your day at any hotel buffet is with breakfast. I always start with fresh fruit salad and then move on to some eggs or traditional Arabic breakfast dishes like hummus with falafel balls or ful medames (a chickpea dish). At Oscar's buffet, you can also find pancakes or waffles as well as different types of breads such as pita or baguette slices.

For lunch or dinner at the best 5 star hotel in Sharjah, you’ll love trying different kinds of seafood such as salmon fillet or shrimp skewers in addition to a selection of salads and soups such as lentil soup with mushrooms or French onion soup (which is probably my favourite!).

Maintain A Regular Sleep Schedule

Your body needs a regular sleep schedule to function at its best. Going to bed at the same time each night and waking up at the same time each morning will help you maintain your circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is your internal clock that tells your body when to sleep and when to be awake.

If you go against this rhythm, it can cause fatigue and irritability. If you have trouble sleeping try exercising in the morning and taking naps during the day. This will help regulate your circadian rhythm and give you more energy throughout the day.

Schedule a massage. You deserve it!

Massages have been shown to have many benefits including stress relief, increased blood flow, enhanced muscle relaxation and improved sleep quality. If you’re looking for a way to unwind after a long day of work or exploring your destination, then schedule a massage at the Act Hotel Club 21 Spa in Sharjah where they offer massages that cater to every need from aromatherapy massages to sport massages as well as anti-cellulite treatments and reflexology.

Don't Forget To Hit the Gym

When you're on vacation, it's easy to forget about your workout. You've got so much time to spend with family and friends and you're so excited that you don't want to waste a moment of it working out. We get it! But if you want to be fresh and rejuvenated during your stay at the Act Hotel, UAE, then make sure you include some time for exercise.

The Club 21 Gym is equipped with state-of-the art equipment and trainers who will help get you on track for the best vacation ever. The gym is a great place to work out, especially if you want to get your heart rate up and sweat it out. Here are some reasons why we think working out while on vacation is important:

  • It boosts energy levels - Working out releases endorphins which keep us feeling happy throughout the day.
  • It clears your mind - Exercise helps clear our minds of stressors that might be bothering us at home or work - whether it's an argument with someone close or something going on at work.

We all know how good it feels when we've had a good cry - well this is kind of like that but healthy, happy tears instead. You don't want to suffer from burnout or boredom on your vacation, so try not to do too much at once. Take advantage of the hotel's amenities and stay active!

Keep an eye on your caffeine intake

The vacation season is here and we all want to enjoy this time of the year. There are many ways to do so, but one thing that you should be careful about is your caffeine intake.

The problem with caffeine is that it can make you feel hyperactive and jittery, which is not good for your body. If you have already started drinking coffee and tea in large amounts, then there is no need to stop now. But try to reduce the amount gradually so that you don't feel any withdrawal effects when you return from your vacation.

If you are going on a holiday with your family, then try to avoid taking caffeine pills or energy drinks as they can cause harm to children too.

Bike to a nearby park or beach.

The Act Hotel is a hotel near Al Majaz Waterfront in the heart of Sharjah, close to everything you need. Hire a bike and go for a ride to stay active on your vacation, then this is the perfect place for you. You can ride your bike to a nearby park and enjoy some quiet time with nature or go surfing at the beach.

Hydrate Responsibly

The human body is made up of roughly 70% water, so it’s important to keep your body well-hydrated. But don’t try to drink your weight in water on vacation in the Middle East. The weather is hot and humid, so it’s more important than ever to stay hydrated. Here are a few tips:

- Drink plenty of water throughout the day. The minimum recommended amount is 8 cups (1.9 litres) for men and 7 cups (1.7 litres) for women, but you can drink more if you’re active or if it’s very hot outside.

- If you exercise, replace lost fluids by drinking water or sports drinks such as Gatorade or Powerade before, during and after exercise.

- If you choose to drink alcohol or caffeine, alternate either with glasses of water between each alcoholic beverage so that you don’t overdo it on just one type of liquid. And don’t forget to eat food while drinking alcohol; otherwise your body won’t be able to absorb the nutrients from your meal.

Listen to your body, don't overdo it.

In order to stay energised on your getaway, it is important that you listen to your body and respect its needs. If you're on vacation, you might feel compelled to keep up with your usual workout routine, but this can actually be counterproductive. Your body needs time to adjust to the new environment and get used to being on vacation.

For example, if you are feeling tired or overworked before your trip, you may need more sleep than usual or a little extra rest. If you are feeling stressed out or anxious about something, it is better not to make big plans during this time because they may not work out well for you.


Don't overdo it! Don’t forget that vacations are meant to be relaxing – so don’t try too hard with every activity on your list! Your body will thank you later!


So when you head down to your vacation destination take a moment to really appreciate their beauty and immerse yourself in the culture. Get out there and breathe in fresh air, fueling your body with all the nutrients it needs, and get moving with every step you take.
