Dedicated to relaxation, this five-star hideaway curves around an enormous outdoor pool, elegant terrace and canal-side beach with coral-white imported sand. Surrounded by lush landscaped gardens and dotted with water features, the terrace offers glorious views of the Grand Canal, private cabanas, al fresco dining and cooling drinks.
Equally as memorable is the hotel’s choice of restaurants – eight to be exact, featuring unique twists on global cuisine. Highlights include Mijana, a stunning Arabic Lebanese restaurant; one of three designed by the rather comically named Super Potato Design Company from Japan, The Forge for seafood and steak and Li Jiang for Southeast Asian delights, occupying an outdoor area with majestic views of the mosque. Room service is available 24 hours a day.
The beachfront Espa Spa features a steam room, a Hammam, and 15 treatment rooms offering relaxing massages. The health club is fitted with a range of CV and weight equipment.
Children are guaranteed to have the time of their lives at the Ritz Kids Club, with face painting, treasure hunts and the Splash Park.
There’s a tradition souq, Qaryat Al Beri, just across the creek, which guests can get to via a traditional abra water taxi.
