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!

I cannot stress enough how well the Ritz-Carlton looked after myself and my wife on the celebration of our Wedding In Dubai. Due to Covid it was cancelled in April & as soon as we were able to get married the Hotel were utterly Amazing. If you want a true review - you must go there & be part of how brilliant this hotel and its team is at making you feel you are with family even although none of our family could travel to be here. From the Towel Art, to the Personalized Messages - to the service, to the stunning food especially the Blue Jade its a hidden gem that's for sure. I could rave on for a lot longer than this - so if you are thinking about staying in Dubai - this is where you go for a tranquil oasis right in the heart of The Walk. We didn't regret it & we think you will love it as well.. Read less

Never disappointed by the standards of the Ritz and this place surely takes it up to another level. Amazing surroundings, food and staff by the pool, where Sanjay and the rest of the staff take good care of all the guests.

This review was started before the Coronavirus Pandemic. This was our fourth trip to Dubai and each time we have stayed at the Ritz Carlton. It is situated on Jumeirah Beach and near to the Dubai Marina. From the moment that we were greeted and taken to the Club Lounge we felt relaxed and eager to enjoy our holiday. Albert and the staff of the lounge catered for our every culinary need. Our room was very comfortable and we had a balcony with views over the hotel grounds to the beach and Gulf. To the right we could see the Palm and Atlantis Hotel and to the left is the man made Bluewater Island with Caesar’s Palace and residential, retail, entertainment and dining options. The island is also the home of the Dubai Wheel, Ain Dubai, which is the world’s tallest observation wheel. The 48 double - glazed capsules was to be in position and functioning in time for the Expo Dubai 2020 in October. However, Expo has been postponed until October 2021 so we shall have to wait and see when it will be opened. The Ritz Carlton satisfies most culinary tastes with nine venues including beachfront dining, Afternoon Tea, Friday brunch and themed dinners. There are a choice of pools including children’s pools, a Kids’ Club, tennis courts and many areas within the hotel grounds and on the private beach to relax and be served refreshments and a light lunch. For the more energetic there is a fully equipped gym and you can also be pampered at the Spa. If you enjoy shopping and searching for local restaurants and cafes, you are only a few steps from The Walk and close to the Dubai Marina which has it’s own Mall. However, whatever the facilities, I seek good, friendly, attentive service and this is where the Ritz Carlton surpasses many other hotels and resorts. Your every wish is granted. The staff in reception, by the pools, on the beach, organising the various activities, in the restaurants are without exception the friendliest and most attentive. I pass on our thanks to the following for taking a personal interest in our daily comfort and sharing their interesting stories and experiences of life and family not only at the hotel but in the many countries from where they originate. I apologise to the many others, we met during out holiday, who have not been mentioned below but I can assure you that we valued your interest and care. Beach - Aharon, Robinson, Kamal and Juvie Pool -Rajesh and Rene La Baie - Sanjir, Gregory and Frank We stayed in a Club room giving us access to the exclusive Club Lounge for breakfast, snacks and drinks. Many thanks again to Albert, Belle and everyone, including the chefs, for a superb array of breakfast choices, friendly service and attention to detail. After a day on the beach, sightseeing or enjoying a meal it was wonderful to go back to our Club room which was always pristine clean. Housekeeping, the kitchen staff and others behind the scenes tend not to receive the thanks and appreciation given to those seen on a daily basis around the hotel but we certainly wish to extend our thanks to them for their dedication to ensuring that guests have an exceptional stay. Many thanks must go to Martha and Ramesh for preparing our room daily and to Prasanth for his efficient turndown service. On arrival in our room on the first day we found 2 swans made out of towels on our bed. We complimented Ramesh on his creation and were then amazed to find a new animal or bird on our bed each night. The creations by Ramesh and added to by Prasanth grew each day with an added design on St. Valentine’s Day! We, fortunately, were able to speak to the Housekeeping manager and express our appreciation of their dedication to their guests. Since this holiday the Ritz Carlton has had to abide by the rules set to restrict the spread of the Coronavirus and I presume that many of the staff have had to return home. I hope that they are being supported financially during this uncertain time and that sometime in the future they will be invited back to prepare the hotel for again welcoming guests. We have many happy memories of our visits to the Ritz Carlton and our lasting memory will be of the front of hotel staff and many of housekeeping lining up to wave us goodbye. Read less

I stayed here for 6 days. Location, Service, Amenities, Rooms, all are A1. I stayed at other 5 star hotels, but this one is by far my favorite. I prefer it over the luxury hotels by the palm as it is centrally located. Also it offers one of the best breakfasts!
