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!

We have just come back from our stay at this hotel and feel we need to acknowledge the exceptional service we have just received. We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions, and didn't hesitate to go back in these unusual times. We had a club room and one of the team members, Kissy was aware we were there to celebrate a special occasion and did everything in his power to make it a time to remember. He was more than successful in achieving his mission. He was ably supported by the other members in the club room, Nadia, Patel, Sylvester and Indra who all went out of their way to make the whole 8 nights really special, They all deserve immense credit. It was also good to be able to briefly catch up with the club front desk team who are now located in the main lobby. We also want to mention the exceptional lengths the housekeeping team went to to make this special. Thank you to Mukesh, Ventakesh and Ramesh for providing the superb creativity which was much appreciated. Jerick at breakfast, Belle in the Lobby lounge and Professor in Splendido were also amazing. The whole service team in this hotel went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect, and although we have named a few, they all deserve recognition for what they achieved for us. During these uncertain times we felt amazingly safe and well looked after and that is a credit to everyone. The only negative is, as vegetarians the menu is very limited around the hotel and we have given direct feedback to the food and beverage manager and hopefully this will improve for future guests and also for our next visit, as we will definitely be returning again. We would have no reservation in recommending this hotel to anybody. Well done to you all. Read less
