Located on the shores of Jumeirah beach, the Ritz-Carlton is a five star hotel with an emphasis on quality design and décor. While other hotels locate themselves dizzlingly high in one of Dubai’s many skyscrapers, the Ritz-Carlton takes a landscape view; its modest 16 floors are spread across one of the city’s most desirable postcodes.
The architecture is reminiscent of the classic New York and London hotels from the early 20th Century. The similarity is clearer inside. The art deco and 1930s glamour are infused with modern architecture to create a specialist hotel that is accessible too. A Mediterranean influence happens on the pink terracotta roof. Your bathroom is crafted from the finest marble and your living area opens onto a wide balcony that overlooks the beach or the hotel’s swimming pool and tropical gardens. The extensive Balinese spa offers all the usual scented scrubs and spiritual stones while the gym is a go-getter’s paradise.
