Ritz Carlton Dubai

A stay at the Ritz-Carlton Dubai, one of the city’s oldest hotels and now in its 20th year, offers all the classic comforts that the luxury hotel chain is known for, giving you the best of business and pleasure. Ideally located in the centre of the Dubai Marina district, the hotel’s unassuming front swiftly opens up into a vast beachfront oasis of idyllic gardens surrounding six different swimming pools: these serve as muchneeded sanctuaries from the incredible heat. Whether your vibe is social drinking at the pool bar or head-in-a-book in a more secluded Jacuzzi, there is more than enough outdoor space and privacy to accommodate everyone, including those who wish to destress by playing one of the hotel’s tennis courts.

In fact the list of the Ritz-Carlton Dubai’s facilities seems never-ending, with its flexible function halls which can accommodate the biggest corporate events in addition to the most extravagant weddings. The vast, yet privacy-oriented spa, has mixed and single-sex rooms for resting and even sleeping in, after a deeply relaxing treatment, while the luxurious 24-hour-gym provides the perfect antidote to jet lag.

A twilight dip in the sea or stroll along the Ritz Carlton’s private beach also make for an unforgettably surreal yet romantic experience as the water dances in a colourful rippling pattern reflecting the neon lights of the looming Blade Runner-like skyscrapers that surround the elegantly lit palm-tree populated hotel.

The Blue Jade restaurant is by far the best of the eight restaurants on site, serving up exquisite pan-Asian cuisine that those in the know consider to be the city’s best. With delicious dim sum and unlimited sushi on Sundays for AED 165, this refined setting is the perfect place to spend an evening before heading out to a show.
