The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai

Dubai Beach, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

A gem of a hotel, the spectacular Ritz-Carlton, Dubai has a wealth of amenities. Guests can enjoy a total of six swimming pools, including two exclusively for children (happily set in the shade!) and one exclusively for adults. There’s a choice of rooms and suites, including Club rooms with access to the Club Lounge with benefits such as free flow of alcohol from 12:00pm-10:00pm and five food presentations. Its Italian restaurant Splendido is something of a local legend, and there is also a contemporary Asian restaurant Blue Jade and a sophisticated lounge offering unique flavour combinations from around Asia! 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 private 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! There are plenty of shaded areas too, private nooks to call your own, and unbeatable service from the La Baie Lounge. All of this, plus an indulgent spa, exciting kids club and a great location, ensures a holiday you’ll remember forever!

We stayed in Dubai for roughly a week after not being able to travel to Mauritius due to Covid travel restrictions. Although we were initially a bit disappointed not to be able to pursue our initial travel plans, the stay at this hotel largely made up for the trip we missed out. The hotel is located in a central area and covers a huge area which features 3 pools and private access to the beach. The hotel’s restaurants where we dined (Blue Jade and Splendido) are delicious and they took all the necessary measures in order to ensure that the covid restrictions don’t adversely affect the nice buffet breakfast. Among the 3 pools, there is an adults only pool which we strongly recommend if you travel without children. The adjacent « La Baie » Bar allows you to grab a drink and snacks. However, first and foremost the stay at the hotel was made even more so special by the extraordinary staff of the hotel. They were (without exception and always) smiling and extremely welcoming and helpful (at the restaurants, reception, massage...). A very big special mention and huge thanks to Sanjay and Frank at the « La Baie » who made our days at the pool truly unforgettable. Read less

We used to live in Dubai for 6 years and went on a regular basis to the Ritz and La Baie. The last year we also enjoyed a Ressort membership. To say goodbye to Dubai, we spent our last week in the county in the Ritz. The Ressort is one of the best in Dubai. The service is first class, ambience, food and drinks are excellent. Especially in La Baie Gregory, Frank, Vishnu, Beck and Sanjay do their best to make every visit worthwhile. We will miss being greeted by Charles and his colleagues with their incredible help and kindness. This place became a second home in Dubai. Read less

We had a very pleasant evening time in this cozy and romantic Italian restaurant... Limited items on the menu but excellent quality. The seafood spaghetti are by far our favorites. Service was Ritz Carlton level for sure, thank you Azeem, Milka and Pankaj!
