The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre

A world of refinement in the heart of downtown

Tucked inside Dubai’s business district,The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre is a model of refinement. It begins in the courtyard with a gurgling waterfall and follows into the art-deco lobby. Rooms also have a similar tasteful vibe with sophisticated furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows that afford wonderful vistas.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Don’t miss a trip to the spa, where treatments inspired by India, Bali, Morocco and Mexico will make you melt.
  • The property has a great location. It’s attached to Gate Village, an area teeming with art galleries and restaurants. It’s also a 10-minute drive from downtown.
  • Food is a highlight. Get an authentic Belgian meal at Café Belge, Italian at an outpost of the famed Le Cirque or a succulent steak at Center Cut.
  • Be sure head to hot spot Flair No. 5, an outdoor bar and lounge, and order a botantical cocktail.

Things to Know
  • This is not a pet-friendly hotel, so you will have to leave Fido with a sitter.
  • Children will love staying here. The Ritz Kids program gives them a slew of amenities (a welcome packet, toys, a special menu). And they can request to have a kiddie-sized tent set up in the room.

The Rooms

  • Spacious art-deco-influenced rooms sport a classic, contemporary look with white, sky blue and light wood. All have abundant natural light, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • White marble covers the bathrooms, which have separate rainforest showers and deep-soaking tubs along with perfumed Asprey products.
  • Upgrade to Club Level accommodations to get access to a VIP lounge that puts out food and drinks throughout the day, offers a dedicated concierge and provides a place to unwind.
  • For the most luxurious accommodations, reserve the Royal Suite. It has a study, living and dining rooms, a kitchen, a Jacuzzi and butler service. Plus, airport transfers are included with your stay.
