It’s hard to know where to begin with Raffles Dubai, such was the nature of the incredible stay myself and my now fiancé experienced. From the personalized welcome of Olga, to the smiles and friendly nature of Robinson and Dheeraj in the Club room it was simply incredible. I had requested a room with a skyline view prior to arrival as I had planned to propose to my girlfriend on the room balcony. This request was easily accommodated. I also found out that our butler was informed of my intentions and we were offered free champagne as we were also celebrating our 3rd anniversary upon entering the room. On that note, it must be noted that the rooms are HUGE and really well laid out to the highest quality. Easily the best room we’ve had the pleasure to share.
When we came back that evening the butler team had transformed our room with a romantic rose petal turn down service, a rose petal bath and chocolates. For absolutely no extra charge. It made the day even more special and unbelievable. A truly memorable experience to fit in with our engagement. I also can’t forget Margaret who always had a smile and a friendly word to say in the club room where we made use of the canapés and afternoon tea, as well as the drinks. Dheeraj went out of his way to make every second in the lounge feel special, so a huge thanks to him. Such was the overwhelming personal feel to the place, we actually gave thank you cards to all the above members of staff.
Make sure to check out Tomo and Fire and Ice, both offer stunning cuisine and cocktails.
We will certainly be returning here soon and every other time we pass through or stay in Dubai.
