My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton al Wadi desert hotel for a two-night staycation and we had a fantastic time. The villas are decorated with taste and have private pools from which one can see animals wandering. The staff is very kind and always anticipating the guests’ needs. Thank you so much for the great time (special thanks to Anup for showing up a fabulous sunset spot and for his spot on service) , we will be back!

Hotel's Favorite
We left a stuffed toy that Ritz Carlton provided and only realized this when my daughter was looking for it mid-flight home. We wrote to the hotel to see if they can find the stuff camel. They (Ali & Salwa) went above and beyond by sending us the stuffed camel and included a picture (with a frame) and a sweet letter addressed to our daughter. What a way for Ritz Carlton and staff to relieve us from our anxiety of losing my daughter's new favorite toy! We already miss the resort and staff and we look forward to visiting again in the near future.

This resort is genuinely one of the best Ritz resorts we’ve been to! The desert experience is such a unique experience, one you will probably only find at this location. The people here are nice, the food is great, and the atmosphere is so perfect. We recommend staying at one of the secluded pool villas where you’ll see gazelles, deer and camel chilling right outside your door. The private dinning experience is also wonderful and the perfect way to celebrate any occasion. Chef Lisa’s food was absolutely delicious! Special thanks to Ms. Kajal Singhal who really accommodated all our needs and requests and made our stay extremely comfortable and special. 10/10 recommend for an authentic dubai desert experience.

Our family of 4 stayed at the Ritz Carlton Al Wadi for 2 days while on a trip to Dubai. What a wonderful experience with beautiful memories! We traveled as a family with our 5 and 2 year old. They had a blast! They loved having our private pool, riding bikes around the property and interacting with the wildlife. Breakfast was delicious! The spa has the “rainforest experience” which was amazingly refreshing and relaxing. There is a stable on the property. Overall a great relaxing experience away from the hustle of the city. The staff was friendly and helpful. We look forward to visiting again.

Our stay was absolutely fabulous! From the moment we arrived till the moment we left our stay has been amazing. The staff have been so welcoming; they really looked after us. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they made it truly memorable for us. I want to thank Ian the Front Desk Manager for ensuring our stay was perfect and excellent hospitality, Saged (Senior Concierge), Jince Joyce who really looked after us daily, Chef Islam for the yummy food, along with Melvin, Subin, Cheitti, Pablo, Prince, Christine - all were so lovely, warm and welcoming! And many more. The staff from Farmhouse also really looked after us and honored our anniversary. We went to the Beach resort and spent an afternoon there which was so lovely.

Room Tip: 1. The reservation staff when you call in beforehand May be a bit abrupt - don’t let that put you...
