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!

Dear Ritz-Carlton-Dubai-TEAM, your hotel is really great, we loved it over our long stay so much. We had a super nice room and this room has everything what you need and more. The complete facility inside with delicious restaurants and breakfast and outside with so many pools, sunbeds for everybody, bars, entertainment and the beach with all the possibilities are just perfect for a short stay or even if you stay longer like us with a little kid as a family. Everything was perfect. But all is about service here. We were stunned about the high-class service and comfort we enjoyed. So many people made our stay really comfortable and we would like to thank especially here some people because they really did a very very good job: Ariel, Charles and Planton who really gave us always a nice and warm welcome and “high fives” every day. Especially Ali, for being so friendly and helpful in any situation. Room/Turndown: Apsara and Biswas for perfect room service and always nice little surprises. Pool/Beach: Suranga and Saeed for everything we needed for the whole day, lots of towels, water, coconut, ... and nice chats. Suranga is really an enrichment for this hotel. Breakfast & Dinner: Tobias for great egg Benedict’s, Jerick for the best table and Capo´s, Sukanya, Ashad, Chandhry, Milka for the lovely service. Tawfeek for delicious Arabic soups, nice warm welcomes super friendliness and service. Thank you all of you!!! You made our visit unforgettable Cheers Your Room 434 :-) Family F. Read less

My fiance and I celebrated our anniversary at this hotel on November 2019 and it was the best experience we ever had. From the moment we arrived everything was so perfect. Everybody was so nice with us and they were always smiling and they made us smile all the time. We felt just like home. The fountain and the stairs were so beautiful and everyone so elegant and happy. We did the London Social Brunch and everything was amazing. The arrangements , the music, the food was unbelievable. The food was exceptional but we loved the grill that Chef Hassan was doing. The taste was amazing. Everyone was smiling and having a good time. The lady Mihaela was doing a great job. She was always there making sure we have everything we need and that we’re happy. They surprised us with a cake for our anniversary and we had such an amazing moment. They sang to us, wishing us happy birthday and happiness. And the cake was so beautiful and tasty. Amazing experience! Read less

My husband and I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton with our one year old daughter in January 2020. We have traveled extensively and yet in terms of the guest experience, this is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in - the kindness, professionalism and attentiveness of the staff is second to none. It is particularly good for families and the staff all make a huge effort to get to know the children. We went to Dubai in search of some winter sun and unfortunately were quite unlucky with the weather. However the quality of our experience at the Ritz-Carlton made up for the poor weather. Location wise, the hotel is within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants of JBR and the Marina, which was great for the days when the weather wasn’t so good. We have previously stayed on the Palm, but would recommend this area over the Palm particularly if traveling with children as there is so much more to do and see (including Cheeky Monkey soft play nearby). The hotel is set in beautiful grounds, with a number of swimming pools, which we saw being cleaned regularly while we were there. There is a private beach with plenty of sun loungers and cabanas, and the common areas are extremely well tended to. The hotel boasts a series of high quality restaurants - Blue Jade (the pan Asian) is one of the best we have eaten in. We booked a room with access to the club lounge - which costs more than a standard room but entitles you to breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and cakes, all inclusive with the price of the room. The food in the lounge was great, and works particularly well if traveling with young children as there is always something on offer for them. The staff in the lounge are incredibly friendly and wonderful with children - Nadia and Belle in particular deserve a special mention as they were really lovely and our daughter took a real shine to them - they went out of their way to make her smile. If traveling with kids, we would recommend the club lounge rooms. Another special mention goes to the fabulous housekeeping team, in particular Negi, who not only made sure our room was kept lovely and clean, but did a number of things to make our daughter’s stay special - including arranging for animals to be created out of towels and left for her to find, a cluster of balloons left on her bed and a large replica of the Burj Khalifa created out of rose petals on our bed. Negi and team were kind, thoughtful and a real pleasure to get to know during our stay. They are a real credit to the Ritz-Carlton hotel and we would like to thank them for all of the effort they went to for us. On occasion things didn’t quite go to plan but the hotel dealt with it brilliantly - for example, they had to shut the outdoor restaurant, Amanseera, while we were dining there due to the severe rain. This was clearly not the hotel’s fault, however the staff went to great lengths to ensure we were well looked after, notwithstanding the rain. All in all a fantastic stay at the Ritz-Carlton and we can’t recommend it highly enough! Should we find ourselves in Dubai again, we wouldn’t hesitate to come back. Read less

My family and I recently stayed for 3 nights at the Ritz Carlton Dubai. They were extremely accommodating and the facilities were excellent. We had use of the club lounge where the staff were always polite and food and drink choices ample. My children also enjoyed the kids club.
