    This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed, and it was my first stay in a Ritz Carlton Resort.

    The hotel is simply superb. As you enter the lobby, everything appears just so clean and perfect.

    Rooms are oversized (I shared one with my parents and there was enogh space for everybody), luxury furnishes, with a balcony overlooking the lush gardens and pool area. We had two queen sized beds in our room, and they were so big that we didn't need an extra bed for me. The room was decorated in Arab style which I enjoyed very much. The bathroom was awsome, with both a huge shower and whirpool, black marble everywhere, luxury toiletries and smooth Frette towels. We enjoyed all 5 star services like twice a daily room tide up, English newspaper every morning delivered to our room, chocolates at night and as much bottled water as we wished.

    The resort offered many facilities. The pool area is simply outstanding, with lush gardens all around and different-sized pools. Umbrellas and chairs are far from each other so that you can enjoy great privacy. Although there may be many guests staying at the hotel, you feel you are the only one!

    We then enjoyed the Ritz Carlton touch a lot. It was my mum's birthday during our stay and she received a beautiful bunch of flowers delivered in our room, a free chocolate birthday cake and a tasty cocktail by the pool!

    Staff attitude and careness is simply outstanding and all people working there made our stay unforgettable.

    Unique Quality: Well when you say Ritz Carlton you've said enough....... You get what you pay, right?
    This hotel is no doubt very expensive but staying at a Ritz Carlton is always worth!

  • My favourite hotel in Dubai!


    This is a gorgeous hotel. Up to the usual Ritz Carlton standards, this hotel suits Dubai.

    We stayed in a Club Executive Suite.

    I would highly recommend this hotel, it is my absolute favourite in Dubai.

    The service is spot on, the staff so friendly and so keen to help, very well trained.

    The Club Level rooms are served by a lounge which offers free beverages, including Champagne, and they have snacks and hors d'oeuvres available all day long.
    You can take a buffet breakfast here too.Nice to sit eating your scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, with a glass of perfectly chilled champagne at 8am - admiring the beauty of the Arabian Gulf!

    Staff in the Lounge remember your name, and your favourite drinks.
    Very highly recommended to pay the extra for these rooms, alcohol is very expensive in Dubai. Its nice to have your pre-dinner aperitif in here.

    Our suite was superbly decorated, and extremely clean and well cared for.

    Unique Quality: In addition to the beautiful main pool, there is an adults only pool area, the pool is quite small here,but it is so peaceful. Great if you dont have kids, or you left them at home! See my picture of it.

    The gardens are beautiful and lead down to the gorgeous beach.

    The staff bring you ice water sprays at mid-day to cool down, and chilled fruit.

    The gym is a little small, it was the only thing I was disappointed in at this hotel.

    The spa is fabulous. It's an Indonesian theme, and the treatments are soooo good, it is great to be pampered on holiday!

    Choice of four restaurants, good food in all of them, alcohol, like all Dubai hotels, is expensive.

    To sum up, if you like your hotels to be elegant but not stuffy, book the Ritz Carlton for your holiday in Dubai!

Fabulous Tie

by A TripAdvisor Member

We had an amazing time at the Ritz Carlton Dubai. The staff were extremely friendly and could not do enough to please us eg. I asked the waiter at the poolside luncheon area what brand of coffee they used as my latte was superb. He asked me how long we would be staying as the following day was his day off and he would pick me some up in the local supermarket! The gym was of a very good standard and so was the room which was at ground level and so led out onto the pool area. The breakfast was also of an extremely high standard

I don't know what the construction areas look like now a year on - yes at the front of the hotel it is a building site but so is half of Dubai. All the hotel activities are at the back of the hotel.

Excellent Honeymoon choice!

by TripAdvisor Member Yaris

I'm writing this review on behalf of my brother who stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Dubai between 27/9 - 4/10 for his Honeymoon. Before he went, he found Tripadvisor most helpful and wanted me to write this review for him.
The room was a Deluxe Room which was very spacious, extremely clean and with a balcony facing the pool area and had partial ocean view. Upon arrival, a small chocolate "Happy honeymoon" cake was waiting for them with compliments from the Hotel.
The hotel grounds were beautiful (if you forget the fact that behind the hotel there is so much construction going on). The pool, the beach, the spa area, was so nice and relaxing, exactly something that honeymooners expect, peace and quiet away of everything and everyone else.
The hotel staff was so polite and always serving people in the best way. The Reception people made all the arrangements for booking in restaurants (their recommendations were excellent), tour operators for a safari in the desert or the city tour, leaving almost nothing for you to worry about.
It is a fact that it is considered a rather expensive Hotel. Believe me though, it is worth every cent. They would definitely go back, on their anniversary maybe. They highly recommend it for a wonderful Honeymoon.

Beautiful hotel, warm and friendly staff. A perfect holiday

by A TripAdvisor Member

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Ritz Carlton Dubai. It was a wondeful week and the Ritz Carlton and its staff consistently exceeded our expectations.
The hotel is small by comparison to most others in Dubai and for us this was a real advantage. There was a real personal touch to the hotel and the service it offered to guests.
The rooms and facilities are beautifully maintained. The pool area and the beach are quiet and spacious. The adult only pool was particularly peaceful. The restraunts are all of a very high standard. We ate at all 3 and would recommend them all. The Arabian themed outdoor buffet was superb.
Above all else I must compliment the staff from the hotel. They were so warm and friendly and at the same time absolutely professional and efficient. They anticipated your every need and took care of it; consistently exceeding our expectations.
The building work around the hotel is extensive (as it is everywhere in Dubai) at no point did this work trouble us or disturb us in any way. In fact it is quite fascinating to watch at times.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Amazing Service and Beautiful Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed at the Ritz Carlton Dubai with my new bride for part of our honeymoon. We stayed 3 nights from 10/17 - 10/20. From the second we drove up to the hotel the service was excellent. In fact, we couldn't believe how amazing everything was being that we didn't even pay for the room. We used Marriott rewards points and we still were treated like royalty. We too received the Happy Honeymoon chocolate cake in the room, which was delicious. They also placed rose petals on our bed in the shape of a heart on another night and filled the bath with salts and rose petals and left chocolate covered strawberries on the side of the tub. It was very romantic and very noce of the hotel to go out of their way for us.

The room was very large and spacious, with very large ceilings and a fantastic bathroom. Our room over looked the pool and the arabian gulf.

Yes, there was a lot of construction outside the hotel, but the whole city is booming. You can't hear anything and it doesn't disrupt your holiday.

We only ate a few meals at the hotel, but the food was very good for the meals we did eat. The best meal was breakfast. Everything was so fresh and delicious. We left the hotel for dinner one night and went to the Burj Al Arab (Al Mahara). I can honestly say it was nice to see the Burj, but the restaurant was not worth it. It was very expensive and I've had better food in NY or the Caribbean for much much less.

We did have have some spa services at the Ritz which were nice. My wife said her Balinese massage was amazing, but my Balinese massage was just ok, relaxing but not the best I've ever had. I think the spa will only allow same-sex massage therapist so if you are uncomfortable with that, don't visit the spa for a massage.

All in all we loved Dubai and the Ritz Carton there and we plan on going back after the construction is complete so we can see what Dubai has become.

Very expensive,but you have to pay for the best.Around the pool you are offered iced face towels every couple of hours,and the beach towels are either staightened or changed every time you take a dip!
