Virgin Holidays View
Already a gem of a hotel, the Ritz-Carlton, Dubai is set to become even more spectacular with the opening of a brand new wing in spring 2013. As well as extra rooms and suites, all furnished to impeccably high standards, guests can enjoy two additional swimming pools, making a grand total of 5, including 2 exclusively for children (happily set in the shade!). Its existing Italian restaurant, already something of a local legend, will be redesigned completely and added to the list, a new Asian restaurant and a Mediterranean one too! All of this, plus Amaseena, their magical tented Bedouin village, set right beside the sea and serving traditional regional specialities, to be enjoyed whilst listening to the haunting background strains of the oud and the tabla. As all first-class hotels in Dubai do, this hotel overlooks its own stretch of beach, pristine white sands lapped gently by azure waters. A wonderful place to relax, topping up your tan perhaps, indulging in a variety of water sports or simply reading that book you’ve been wanting to for ages now, it’s about to get even better! Leaving no stone unturned, it’s been redesigned too, bringing you more shaded areas, more private nooks to call your own and unbeatable service from the The Gulf Pavilion and the new La Baie Lounge. All of this, plus an indulgent spa, exciting kids club and a great location, ensures a holiday you’ll remember forever!
