After much anticipation and years of preparation, TheRitz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) officially opened its doors today. The 341-room hotel, with 124 executive residences, is the second Ritz-Carlton in Dubai and the sixth property in the region for the luxury hotel company.
As the only hotel to be directly linked to the complex of buildings in Dubai International Financial Centre, the social hub will be at No. 5, the hotel bar located in the prime welcoming position at the end of this pathway. A dramatic 30 meter wine wall that is home to 3000 bottles of the finest varietals in the world is a focal point for gourmands and wine connoisseurs. Other dining selections include Blue Rain, the signature Thai fine-dining restaurant; Can Can, a French all-day dining brasserie and the Center Cut steakhouse.
A unique design facet of The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC showcases a 10-storey outdoor waterfall cascading down the building directly into the courtyard facing the lobby. A total of eight striking water features are situated throughout the hotel, which are not only aesthetically and aurally pleasing, but lend themselves to the feng shui belief that the constant flow of water signifies wealth and prosperity. Recreational amenities include a fully equipped health club and luxurious Ritz-Carlton Spa, offering 13 treatment rooms.
