Putting On The Ritz / Hg2 OPENING OF THE WEEK

After what’s seemed like an eternity of waiting, the new Ritz-Carlton in Dubai has finally thrown open its doors in the UAE (the chain’s second property in the city, and sixth in the region). So, is it worth the wait? Only time (and an Hg2 review) will tell, but so far it sounds promising; inside the shiny glass building are 341 extremely well-appointed rooms, 124 business-orientated residences, a slew of destination restaurants – including a Thai, steakhouse and brasserie – as well as an on-site spa and an oversized conference centre for all those BlackBerry-wielding white-collar workers. And they’ll certainly visit, thanks to the hotel being directly connected to the Dubai International Finance Centre. Our favourite features, however is a 100-foot wine wall that houses no less than 3,000 bottles in the hotel bar and an outdoor waterfall that drops 10 floors down into the courtyard that faces the lobby. Far from being a standard corporate stay, this opening has more than a little designer edge to it. We can’t wait to check in and check it out.
