Even more luxurious Dubai holidays as Ritz-Carlton expands
By 2012 Dubai holidays at The Ritz-Carlton will be more luxurious and complete than ever as by this date the beachfront resort is expected to have completed expansion plans that will start to be carried out from April this year. The project which sets out to enhance the Dubai holiday experience at the Ritz-Carlton involves increasing the total number of guest rooms as well as the addition of several new restaurant concepts.
Currently featuring 138 sea view guestrooms over seven floors, the Dubai-based architectural firm Rice Perry Ellis, plans to build an adjacent wing to house an additional 163 guestrooms, bringing the total hotel capacity to 301. Of these, 18 will be designated as suites including two Royal Suites, each providing more than 180m2 and offering a 180-degree panoramic view of the Arabian Gulf.
As expected of a hotel of this category and in-keeping with the luxury Dubai holidays and the Ritz-Carlton are known for, all guest rooms will be equipped with the finest bedding experience, state-of-the-art technology including wireless and wired internet access, iPod docking stations, flat screen TVs and DVD players as standard to enable guests to both work and relax in their rooms. Located on the third floor of the new wing the new The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge will be offering six complimentary food and beverage presentations throughout the day and dedicated multi-lingual concierge service for the peace of mind of worldwide travellers on Dubai holidays.
“This major project is part of our goal to meet our guests’ requirements in the coming years. Since the resort’s opening 11 years ago, our number of guests have increased annually, and with the development of The Walk and DubaiMarina, we are predicting even higher visitors’ interest in The Ritz-Carlton at the completion of this expansion programme.”- said Ritz Carlton General Manager Andrew Nasskau.
As the new wing will be located away from the resort’s guestrooms and recreational facilities such as the Spa and swimming pools, Mr. Nasskau believes the impact will be minimal: “We are mindful of the effect that the expansion programme will have on our guests and we will make every effort to ensure that their comfort and enjoyment will not be compromised,” he says. “All our rooms and suites will still be occupied for the next two years, and the only areas that will be closed are La Baie, the spa pool and garden in front of the new wing.”
Catering to the requirements of corporate travellers who come on Dubai holidays at the Ritz-Carlton expecting nothing but sheer excellence; the resort will boast sizable meeting and function space to include an 800m2 grand ballroom that is divisible by six, a boardroom and three multi-purpose function rooms. In total, the resort will offer 1,160m2 of meeting space, all of which will be equipped with the most advanced technology.
Culinary offerings will be enhanced by 10 new private dining rooms within an enclosed solarium in the Italian specialty restaurant Splendido while the signature restaurant La Baie will be revitalised by a fresh new concept and larger dining space.
In addition to all this, for great scenic views during Dubai holidays, the new wing will also feature the resort’s famed landscaped gardens including new outdoor swimming pools and a terrace. And to finish it off a 2,020m2 Spa and Fitness Center, with separate entries for men and women, will showcase a fully equipped gymnasium, beauty salon and 13 private treatment rooms.
