The Raffles Dubai is an oasis of peace and tranquility, beautifully designed with acres of rare marble and exquisite stone work the ancient Egyptian theme is quite remarkable and very tasteful this also includes the lovely Waffi mall that adjoins hotel .
Our rooms were very spacious and impeccably maintained by the charming room service personnel, Our butlers were outstanding and were great ambassadors for the hotel.
I have never met a lady butler before and I have to say that butler Lillian was at the top of her profession we highly commend her.
The Azure restaurant is first class, chef Samson and his team produce the most sumptuous food, the breakfast buffet is one of the finest that I have seen or tasted.
Chef Praveen introduced me to a hotel specialty Arab style lentil soup just so good.
The waiters were impeccable and gave a very fine service.
The club room for afternoon tea and later drinks and canapes was admirably staffed by charming and knowledgeable club waiters. Both Mathew and Frederick plus one other whose name eludes me are highly commended.
The concierge Maylene who sorted out a tricky Emirates reservation in no time at all and gave us lots of advice on side trips she is also highly commended .
All in all this is a very fine hotel made more so by its excellent staff.
we spent five days at the end of June northbound and four days southbound in August.
This will be our hotel of choice on future trips .
We recommend the club rooms for the little extra it costs
