My husband and I have stayed at the Ritz Carlton for many years and have watched the area around the hotel develop from desert to The Walk and the Jumeirah Residences. We have never failed to be impressed by the standards at the hotel and the welcome we have received when we returned, particularly from the staff at the pool.
On this occasion we stayed from the 3 to 10 December and experienced the new accommodation for the first time. Whilst the old accommodation was becoming a little dated the same cannot be said for the new block which is of the highest standard both in the public areas and the rooms. The new public areas are opulent and stylish with the benefit of wonderful floral displays and Christmas decorations when we were there. Similarly, the new rooms are superbly finished and up to the high standards of Ritz Carlton.
Whilst being used to and probably prefering the original pool area and gardens (which are being renovated at present) to the new pool and gardens the staff were their normal selves, welcoming us back and looking after us suberbly over the week. We have known Sayed and Charlie for many years and they continue to make us feel extremely welcome and comfortable with nothing ever being too much trouble for them. In fact they are one of the reasons we keep returing to the hotel. This year we also met Sanjay and Rashid who were excellent around the pool and also looked after us during the week. Already looking forward to returning this year.
The renovation of the hotel is still ongoing but you would never know it as work seems to be almost silent. I look forward to seeing the whole project complete and the hotel having the finest gardens and pool areas on Jumeirah Beach.
The expansion of the hotel has also seen the opening of the Blue Jade Restaurant. We ate there with friends and were hugely impressed by the service and the cuisine. We will return!
The hotel has been a favourite of ours for many years and indeed is the standard by which we judge hotels around the world. Whilst being a little sceptical on the effect that doubling its' size would have we were delighted to see that it has retained its standards and character. We look forward to returning this year and meeting up with old friends on the staff.
