Well we are back again to our favorite hotel in Dubai. We missed the ambiance of this hotel , calm , welcoming and away for Dubai city chaos. It's been about five years since their soft opening in 2014 and it did not loose it's shine. Although you can see the wear and tear in the room but you expect such things happening, they might need to refurbish some furniture and lamp shades to keep rooms in top shape. But it's not the room that matter, it's the people who make the difference. Their willingness to help, asking questions about our stay almost every day and how they actually took our suggestion seriously. Food in good especially breakfast. They are trying to keep the standard as it was and they are quite successful in doing so. Dinner was okay , good food and good quality products was used, the only comment we had was about their home made ice cream as it was tasteless and needed to use more natural products like natural vanilla. We have been to this hotel many times and we were never disappointed and we shall stay many time in the coming future Read less

Service here was something out of a fairytale. Our personal concierge Soufian took note of everything we needed and made sure to make it a reality, last minute excursions, amenities and even when my partner was ill he was there.

First time I ventured into this hotel, a lovely lobby area in which the restaurant is partly based. I really love the concept of having an afternoon tea setting in a lobby because it gives a very roomy, almost palatial feeling - perfect to enjoy an afternoon tea and pass the day in. Competition re the standard of afternoon teas in Dubai is ridiculously high and fierce, but this place is right up there. Didn't fail to deliver on service, food nor quality. In particular, I'd like to mention we went for the high tea and boy this was more than a three-course meal! The portions are extremely generous (we enjoyed both warm and cold delights) so I would strongly advise guests not to eat beforehand as the portions are truly humongous! An overall great day out, very much enjoyed it, would definitely return. Read less
