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 and extra benefits, all furnished to impeccably high standards, with private balconies facing the Arabian Gulf. 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 had a wonderfull time at Ritz Carlton near Jumeirah beach. It s one of the older classic hotels (6 floors max) but still well maintenanced. The staff is great , helpfull and very friendly. We booked a club deluxe room and were upgraded to a huge (108m2) one bedroom ocean club suite with nice seaview. They are building some skyscrapers next to the hotel, but the plot is quite big so we didn t experienced much problems of noise.... The restaurants we tried (palm grill, blue jade) were a nice experience. At La baie we enjoyed afternoon drinks (and food) while a DJ was playing music... , breakfast is outdoor if you like. At the beach, staff was great and we were offered sunglass-cleaning, ice cold towels and cold water, ice cream,.... Also the spa was amazing (see other review). We recommend this hotel ! See you back soon ! Read less

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton over Easter. The hotel was beautiful and the service (dining, beach staff, room cleaning, etc) is amazing. The sea was very clear although it had some jellyfish (but they were very easy to spot and not aware of anyone getting stung). Great quality, varied choice of food at the breakfast buffet. The beach staff are very helpful - help set up sun loungers, bring cold water and complimentary snacks (popcorn, ice lollies, etc). Jafar especially was excellent cleaning our room everyday several time a day to an excellent standard, very attentive. Great location of the hotel on the beach, with a wide choice of restaurants all around just outside the hotel complex. Lots of activities for children. Highly recommend this hotel. Read less

Special thanks to the Jaffar for his extraordinary job and passion for the details and Kate from the reception for her perfect attitude and help in solving any of our problems! We will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends!
