    Fabulous 8.6 From 67 reviews

    Fair 4.0
    Booked 2 villas, waited at the lobby almost 2 hours to check in. Rooms not ready, poor communication.
    Azizan, gb1 night family trip
    Good 6.0
    Nice but not worth £1200 per night!
    At £1200 for a night in the tented pool villa - it was all a little rough around the edges! Still more Banyan Tree than Ritz Carlton.
    PETER, gb1 night trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Luxury desert resort!
    Amazing!!! We came to the Ritz Al Wadi for 1 night only as we were in Dubai prior to arriving for work & a wedding. Everything about this resort is stunning, from the lobby to the outside desert area. Room was amazing and the private pool was a lovely extra. Staff, food, spa were fabulous. We can’t wait to return and will booking to come back in march for 3 nights. I wish I could give this resort 6* it was just perfect!
    Manpreet, gb1 night romance trip
    Poor 2.0
    Terrible service for a Ritz Carlton
    From misleading photos when we booked, to a pool that was 36 degrees, to repairs conducted for hours in our villa and many issues with housekeeping, this stay was terrible. When it was The Banyan tree it was great. We won’t stay here again.

    Very good 8.0
    Perfect place for romantic getaway
    A beautiful property, ideal for a romantic getaway. While the overall experience was great, the lack of attention to detail made it a notch below perfect. You’d hear “sorry we can’t help with that” a bit too often than you should expect in a Ritz Carlton. The rooms are generous and clean, but need some TLC. Food is great by all hotel standards and dinner at the Farmhouse Was a highlight.
    Anas, us2 night trip
    Good 6.0
    It was good but the room was not clean and the rate was expensive for the service which I got it
    Ali, ie2 night trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Fles flies and flies
    great hotel. when we arrived there were probably 1000 flies and we had to call front desk to exterminiate them. Second day we had about 1000 flies outside on pool area. Call before arriving to have flies eradicated, sadly.
    caroline, ie1 night trip with friends
    Poor 2.0
    Disappointing for a Ritz Carlton
    Views from the rooms are not like the pictures at all. Construction material right by the pool containing tiles etc that were never cleaned. Pool and patio were never cleaned upon our arrival.
    James, us1 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    a weekend stay in RAK
    Was a nice stay however when we received a wrong letter (having the name of other hotel customers) from the management wishing us a great stay we complained to the hotel management and their action was to send someone to pick the letter up and not even send us a correct one or apologise, a day later the hotel called us to ask how is our stay and upon complaining about that issue they didn’t try to rectify it or even apologise, so what’s the point of trying to ask about someone’s experience when you can’t even do something about it? Other than that the service could be improved, that being said the rest of the stay was pleasant.

    A unique experience. Thoroughly enjoyable, excellent service. Breakfast needs some improvement.
