My daughter surprised me with high tea for my belated birthday and it was absolutely fantastic. Special thanks to Hamood and Nadira from the lobby lounge for making it a lovely experience. The food was great, especially the surprise birthday cake! Also thanks to Brixell from the beach restaurant for his warm welcome and hospitality when we took a look at the beach.

I stayed in the hotel with my wife for 3 nights and she was right to choose the ritz as destination. The hotel in general is very well maintained affirmatively managed. The team that we met are all of them nice but chapeau to chef Sagar and his team who went the extra mile to accommodate me with my allergy on the seafood night since my wife was a great fan of the seafood. he looked after us also during breakfast and ensured that our preferences was met. There was a Turkish chef who i unfortunately missed the name but would like to thank him too for him personalized hospitality. We enjoyed having lunch on BLU for 2 day’s and I recommend to try the Banoffe and there you will meet Paul and chawki a cheerful gentleman who looks well after after guest and ensure they are enjoying their dining experience. Lastly we enjoy dinner for 2 night in the Chinese restaurant where all the team were excellent from the head chef to the manager who visited all tables to ensure every guest is enjoying and highlight to Alaa and Peki both were well trained and heart-felt hospitality team. Food in general was excellent, fresh and tasty meets the value. Thanks to the Indonesian lady in Spa who looked after my wife very well. Thank you all again and hope to see you soon.

I stayed there with my family last week, great experience, very welcomed local staff, especially Ali Al Wahabi in Al Khayran restaurant along with Islam the sales manager who helped us on the check in. One only comment that i already expressed to the hote's management that the food variety for Diner in Al Khayran restaurant wasn't as expected. Hopefully the hotel's management will take this into consideration and looking forward to visit the place again.

Few days back we checked in at Al Bustan Palace to stay for a couple of nights as it was our daughters 6th bday. What a great decision we made! She had the best bday ever! When the staff knew it was her bday they made so much extra effort and arrangements to make it such a memorable day for her. The place is amazing, the lagoon rooms we booked were fantastic and all staff was so helpful and super friendly. We would like to thank General manager Mr. Nabil for making sure my daughter got princess like treatment for her bday and even joining us in our celebration despite his busy schedule. We met assistant Finance director Mr Kasi, who made so many wonderful arrangements to make sure our daughter had a birthday she would never forget. Thank you ! Special thanks to Spa Manager Mr Suranga. He made sure we got a lovely orientation of the spa area and it’s wonderful vegetable and herb gardens and took us all around the hotel to observe its splendid beauty! We really appreciate it! Also we would like to thank Mrs Jean at Spa reservations who showed us all the lovely products available and was so helpful whenever we stopped by to ask any queries. The kids adore you! Thank you Jean! Ms. Nadira at the lobby who served us high tea was super friendly and ever so helpful. Our special thanks to Mr Shindu from the lobby who was so helpful and spoke to us in our Tamil language as he speaks multiple languages! Very happy about that! Thanks to Mr Mohammed and Mr Nuwan from Blu Restaurant. So friendly and helpful. Huge thanks to Mr Dragon who made such a beautiful and delicious birthday cake for our daughter! Real work of art and so tasty! You have put a lot of effort into making it so beautiful! Thank you The rooms were clean, the pools were superbly maintained, the kids play area and sports facilities were all top notch and the food and staff at Al Khiran restaurant was amazing ! We would recommend anyone to stay here especially as it is so kid friendly. Our 2 kids loved it and want to stay there again soon ! Thank you al bustan for the royal treatment!
