The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai

Dubai Beach, Dubai

Virgin rating

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 solely for adults. There’s a choice of rooms and suites, including Club rooms with access to the Club Lounge with benefits such as premium alcohol served from 12:00pm-10:00pm and five food presentations! The hotel's Italian restaurant Splendido is something of a local legend. But don't miss Amaseena, their magical tented Bedouin village set right beside the sea, serving traditional regional specialities that can 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, where pristine white sands are 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 planned a birthday trip for my best friend who has always wanted to go to Dubai! I emailed the Ritz Carlton and expressed my vision for my best friend’s birthday and BOY DID THEY BLOW MY MIND!! Elijah Brown (front desk intern representative) took the task over and blew it out the water! When we walked in the hotel Elijah was waiting for us with a beautiful smile on his face and surprises to come! After his wonderful welcome, we entered our room and there were GORGEOUS Flowers, beautiful bed setting with happy birthday written in florals, two cakes and every balloon had a special note on each one. The icing on the cake was the personalized card that Elijah hand crafted with pictures and personal quotes from my best friend! It gets better, he also scheduled her a birthday photo shoot at sunset with dinner on the beach at Tamoka restaurant!! He met us on the beach with his speaker so we could dance to electrifying music and take fun photos! After the shoot he walked us over to Tamoka and introduced us to KK (our server at Tamoka). Kk was simply the BEST!! He brought us over his favorite appetizers and they were all delicious, my favorite was the duck buns! When the appetizers came he plated them so lovely on our plates. He was so attentive and polite. KK was such a pleasure. After dinner, while walking back to our room Elijah met us with a keepsake card with a photo of us from the first day of our arrival. It was so heartfelt, and I will always treasure this experience in my heart! Ritz Carlton is the best for a reason!! Elijah, thank you is an understatement! You went above and beyond my expectations and imagination! May God continue to bless you with abundance in every area of your life! Read less

Bhaskar by the pool was great - he was so friendly and helpful he made us feel so at home straight away. He kept replacing our water, made sure we had all we needed and even helped when we had an issue with the food. The children’s food was too salty and he replaced it with ease.
