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!

Best hotel in JBR, all the staff are so friendly and thoughtful and go above and beyond. As u walk/drive in Charles meets you with that smile. Great start to a day out. It’s always a pleasure to see. Also a big thank you to all the pool staff, Greg, Sanjay, Bish, Agnes, Frank, Ivan, Zip and Sally. Plus all the lifeguards😁

This is a luxurious hotel with massive grounds and extensive swimming pools, right on the beach. The pools really are the best I've experienced in Dubai, and the gardens are lush and so spacious you never feel you're on top of anyone else. Small touches, like cool boxes of chilled water (free) by the pool, were appreciated, and the rooms are lovely with a choice of plush opulence on the original side, or a more modern decor /colours in the new wing. The R-C staff always go the extra mile to make you feel welcome (thank you), but I really feel the catering could do a better job for non-meat-eaters, both in Splendido and in Caravan. The food was very disappointing in this respect and I'd advise vegetarians / vegans NOT to take the half-board deal, and to explore outside the hotel for dinners as there are plenty of super restaurants within a very short walk. Otherwise, though, a serene and elegant hotel that makes for a luxurious family break. Read less

i decided to spend my birthday yesterday at the Ritz and take advantage of their spacation offer. i used to go there to do my hair but never experienced the spa and facilities. i had a blast and i am sososo happy i chose the Ritz JBR!! i live right around the corner can't believe it took me so long to get there! spa was absolutely amazing from the facilities to the massage to the therapist and the service. i was treated like a royal and with so much care. they knew it was my bday and the spa lady offered me lots of mini spa products as a small gift which was lovely. i was shown all around the resort before settling in for the pool day. La Baie is great and the area there lovely, it was not too crowded and the staff is very careful with all the precaution measures. Frank was a star he took great care of me and my friend and fueled our happy hour haha! everything is pristinely clean, smells divine and service was top notch. probably the best pool day i had in Dubai so far and i experiences lots! Better service and facilities than the Waldrof or the Conrad! i cant wait to go back for the spacation!!! thanks for making my day so special!!! Read less
