    We had an amazing experience in this hotel due to the fantastic service we were given. All of the staff were absolutely excellent. Bhaskar and Lionel by the pool were so friendly and attentive to our needs, Chyu and Danang provided great service in Blue Jade and Ajith ensured our room was serviced to an exceptional standard at all times. There are but a few of the many staff who made our trip pleasant. The variety of food in the restaurants was great. There was a big spread for breakfast which was varied and very enjoyable. We loved the casual dining in La Baie, had a great experience in The Caravan for the buffet style dinner but overall the Blue Jade was our favourite venue. Overall our experience in The Ritz Carlton has been a great one and a very memorable one. It has great that our children’s first visit to Dubai has been such a positive one. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel when visiting Dubai.

    had a wonderful experience, especially in the Club Lounge. Everyone there, but most of all Indra, Sharu, Sylvester and Albert provided a truly outstanding service at all times! They’ll take care of every wish that you have to make it a unique stay. The room service team (Suman, Subra and Binod) is the best we’ve seen so far! Thanks to everyone, always happy to come back there!
