I have written quite a few reviews recently about different hotels i have been fortunate to visit and stay in. All but one so far have been average, I am glad to write today about this fantastic property that ticks all the boxes in terms of excellence in service and luxury.
As i usually write my reviews, i will break down into the categories that i think are most important to a business or vacation traveler.
I checked into this hotel march first with my partner in crime my wife who is very insightful in what makes a hotel great. Generally this hotel is very Grand, yet somehow there is an element of simplicity that makes it very comforting, the furniture, color scheme, even the staff uniform is truly wonderfuly elegant. At check in you are welcomed by smiling faces and staff that are very friendly and very happy to provide you with service, you are then provided a delicous welcome drink while check in procedures take place. Check in experience is fantastic! And if you are a sweet tooth, there is a tub of marshmallows right on the reception counter waiting for you to feast on ;).
spacious, with an arabesque touch, very modern, wonderful colors and absolute luxury. The Ritz feel is definitely there. When you are in this room, you know you are at the Ritz. The bed is extremely comfortable. I have massive issues with hotel beds, but this one knocked me out and had fantastic night sleep, where can i get that mattress from ?! :)> in addition mood lighting, different settings, that control the curtains and lights to give you a number of different experiances. Well done.
The bathroom is great, even a T.V is nicely positioned to align with the giant tub. Next time I'm definitely watching my favorite show there. but thats not all, separate shower, rain shower and side jets that makes taking a shower a spa experience.
Finally if you read my reviews before, you'll know that there is one amenity that i find absolutely necessary in a 5 star hotel and yes it is the coffee machine :) you get a fully decked nespresso machine with very elegantly placed capsules in a nice leather box.. no cheap nescafe tubes to be seen anywhere :). But thats not all, you also get a kettle for tea making, and plenty of water...Ritz you have done so well, good job buddy.
I will try to combine a few things here as i could go on & on about this hotel, so supberb service, thank to all the team that works their. You are definitely what makes this hotel great and have customers return to you whenever possible. Keep up the good work.
A few final things to note that are worth mentioning;
Going down to the beach at the ritz is a great experience, the staff provides you free of charge a cold pack filled with bottles of water, and they will replace them a few times during your stay at the beach. Such a simple gesture but it makes such an impact. Well done & thanks. The outdoor layout, pools and landscaping is top notch.
Breakfast is absolutely right on the money. Its very tasty, its very well organized, and ticks all the boxes in terms of selection. The food is so fresh, the seating is fantastic, and well you instictively know where everything is. Relaxed, elegant and tasty..
Overall I think the re-innovated Ritz at JBR is a fantastic hotel, they are renovating another section of the hotel to the same standard of the new wing where we stayed. I can definitely say that this hotel is worth the money, and is a great place to stay in Dubai if you want to be on the beach.
