Ritz-Carlton, Dubai celebrates 20th anniversary

DUBAI, October 3, 2018

Between September and December 2018, The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai celebrates its 20th year of creating #RCmemories and offering the legendary luxury and service for which the hotel is renowned. 

Nestled on an expansive private beach just steps from the city’s most famous promenade, The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR), The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai is a secluded oasis within the heart of Dubai. With breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf, the property is set amongst nearly 400,000-sq-ft of tranquil gardens landscaped in Andalusian style and fronted by a white-sand shoreline.

Two decades ago in September 1998, when the hotel first opened its doors to guests, it was one of the first Ritz-Carlton hotels in the Middle East and North African region and the gateway property to the brand for guests within the UAE.  During its 20 year history, the award-winning beachfront resort has undergone a number of transformations as part of the iconic hotel’s focus on providing exceptional dining and unparalleled service, alongside traditional Arabian hospitality.

To celebrate its 20th year, The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai has created culinary experiences available for a limited time only, a special five-night package showcasing the best of the hotel from past to present, along with an exclusive spa treatment, The Rose Awakening available at the relaunched Ritz-Carlton  Spa, Dubai. In addition, the property is encouraging guests to share their memories of the last two decades via the resort’s official Instagram account using the hashtag #RCmemories. 

20th anniversary celebratory menus, cocktail and mocktail
In line with the tradition of creating unrivalled gourmet moments, for just 20 days, special menus will be available at three of the hotel’s signature restaurants, each recreating the most exceptional dishes of the past and present. The menus are available at Splendido Social Bar and Kitchen, one of the city’s original and best loved Italian restaurants which first opened its doors two decades ago with the launch of the hotel, award-winning pan-Asian restaurant Blue Jade and casual beachside dining outlet Palm Grill, which combines rustic charm with exclusive and intuitive service. Guests are also encouraged to sample the new 20th Anniversary cocktail, The Ritztini, and refreshing mocktail, the Summer Ritz, which have been carefully designed by the resident mixologist.

Location: Blue Jade, Splendido and Palm Grill restaurants
Date: Until October 16
Price: Dh200 ($54.4) per person for a four-course set menu. Anniversary cocktail and mocktail priced at Dh65 ($17.6) each.

20 ways to celebrate package
The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai has also announced the launch of a unique anniversary package, a five-night itinerary designed to showcase the best of The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai.

Throughout the five-night stay, guests can enjoy bespoke dining, lifestyle and restorative wellness experiences. These include the opportunity to join head Arabic chef Rami Al Maket on a visit to Dubai’s vibrant spice souk and fish market to choose fresh ingredients ahead of a personalised cookery class at the iconic restaurant Amaseena where they will join the chef in creating a dish celebrating the romance of the Arabian desert. 

During their stay, guests will also indulge in an al-fresco supper under the stars at authentic Italian restaurant Splendido, as well as a quintessential, signature Ritz-Carlton afternoon tea served with a glass of premium bubbly, whilst wellbeing aficionados will adore the private one-on-one sunrise yoga class within the hotel’s landscaped gardens, or on the pristine beach, followed by a personalised ESPA ritual for two at The Ritz-Carlton Spa.
