The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai

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!

This was our fourth visit to the Ritz Carlton and once again it was absolute perfection. The area around the hotel is the best in Dubai. It’s within easy reach of walkways and a mall so when you have had enough of lying on a sunbed you can get out and about without needing a taxi.

This was our fourth visit to the Ritz Carlton and once again it was absolute perfection. The area around the hotel is the best in Dubai. It’s within easy reach of walkways and a mall so when you have had enough of lying on a sunbed you can get out and about without needing a taxi. We always book a club room and the staff there look after us so well, we are always sad to leave. Shahzad, Albert and Mika on the reception desk of the club room are true professionals but also very friendly and always make us feel very welcome. We will be returning in 2020 for sure and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else! Read less

Service was Ritz Carlton level form the moment we arrived. We were able to secure the Emirates Suite which turned out to be one of the best rooms I've stayed in, in a long time. Several great restaurants and the grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. As usual with the Ritz Carlton, the people are the difference. The staff consistently went out of their way to make sure we were always comfortable and in need of nothing. Outstanding. Upon our departure they formed a line outside and all waved goodbye. This gesture will leave a lasting impression with us and helped make the decision to return even easier. Can't wait to go back. Read less

We visited again last Friday (15th Nov). Once again the alcohol was plentiful and the food was fabulous. I particularly love the Butter Chicken here, to die for. The grill station is excellent. Especially the lamb chops. There was the same two piece acoustic act and they’re very good playing a range of songs such as Pink Floyd, Oasis, Cream, The Beatles. Something for everyone aged over 30 I’d say. Great brunch and we will be going back again soon Read less
