“9th visit to the IBN Battutta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

On Friday 15th August I will be visiting the IBN Battutta my holiday once again. I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel (including the Oceana) and the people who assist me, who I now regard as my friends. They simply cannot do enough to help me and Tejas, Ankit, and Neville always ensure my stay is everything that I want it to be. Every restaurant, in the hotel serves food to the highest standard and the concierge service is superb. I go on holiday to relax and to be looked after....and I certainly get that at the IBN Battutta !! See you soon everyone !!!

Had an absolutely fantastic 5 night All Inclusive stay at this hotel in May.

We arrived on an overnight flight at 8am, and were given early check-in and also upgraded to a Battuta Suite as we were celebrating our engagement, both of which were much appreciated.

Words cannot describe the service on offer from this hotel. All staff were a credit to the company, and could not do enough to make our holiday perfect.

Our upgraded room was unbelievable, with a huge balcony, living area, 2 bathrooms, 2 40 inch TVs and one of the comfiest beds we have ever slept in.

The food on offer at this hotel is quite simply the best we have ever experienced worldwide, as is the fantastic All Inclusive package. The breakfast buffet was enormous. We particularly enjoyed the freshly sliced smoked salmon, eggs benedict and delicious freshly baked bread.

We tried all of the a la carte restaurants (the Italian is also available for lunch, and offer fantastic pizzas). The Indian, Chor Bazaar, was fantastic with a huge range of curries, breads and sides. The charcoal grilled chicken was a particular highlight. The Chinese, Shanghai Chic, was also wonderful and the food is served tapas style where you are encouraged to try as many dishes as possible and they are brought to you as soon as they are ready. Saving the best for last, the Italian was to die for. The fillet steak was one of the best we have ever tried, as was the Wagyu beef carpaccio starter.

We ate in the buffet restaurant for surf & turf night and again this was wonderful. There was live music on to entertain, and the selection of seafood and meat on offer was amazing. We loved the way the seafood was on ice and you selected your own (the lobster was particularly good) and it is then cooked fresh to order on the barbecue.

The drinks package was amazing, with branded spirits, a lovely selection of still and sparkling wines and bottled Stella on offer. Unlike other hotels, this is a true all inclusive.

Finally, the beach on the Palm is amazing, and where we spent most of our days. It is a short 15 minute bus ride away, but the setting with the infinity pool and beach together is out of this world. The All Inclusive option here is also very good, and we rarely spend over our 200LE daily allowance (this got us a nice lunch, 2-3 alcoholic drinks and several soft drinks comfortably).

All in all, one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at and we are actively looking to book again for next year. Would rate this hotel 6 stars if I could!

Room Tip: The Battuta Suite is amazing

Stayed for a couple of days in this hotel. This hotel is inspired by the travels of Ibn Batuta and the countries he had visited during his adventure. Each floor is specifically designed with the standards of each country that Ibn visited. Rooms are greatly spaced and well equipped.
Comfort - Perfect.
Facilities - Perfect
Bar - Perfect with lots of screens around.
Ambiance - Soothing.
Breakfast - Huge Menu
Its opposite to Ibn Batuta mall and a ten minute walk to the metro station. But usually, if someone travels to Dubai for a couple of days for the first time, the first thing you got to check out is Burj Khalifa, which is located a little far from the hotel and you would take 40 min.- 1hour to reach the tallest building in the world one way! For the ones coming to Jafza for business, I would say that this is the perfect property because of proximity.

Room Tip: Try to get the floor according to the country which you really wanna travel to. It would really give...

i visited this hotel in 07/aug-2014 , i find the services very poor comparing to any 5 star hotel i've ever visited, ist night i had problems with A/C, then technician came to replace the filter, later i had problem with refrigerator not cooling , it was replaced but started cooling after 12 hours.
the most common big problem is that all standard rooms toilet seats are very small for a normal size person.
reception team are not reposing to services all the time ,night duty manager not concerned much with guest complains

Room Tip: Standard rooms toilet seats are very small, do not select these rooms

We visited Movenpick Ibn Batuta in Jan 2014 for 2 days for our marriage anniversary. Fantastic Hotel. Opposite to Ibn Batuta Mall, very close to Metro Station. We liked the hospitality of the hotel. Breakfast was complimentary and had a lot of choices, as expected. We had booked Superior Room with the view of the Ibn Batuta Mall, it was spacious. They have shuttle plying to the Ocean Beach club frequently. That private beach is also nice. Overall Great Experience.

Room Tip: Book Superior Room.
