During our recent trip to Dubai, we stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Jumeirah Beach. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a Club Level room, and as benefit, enjoyed access to Club Lounge. In a previous post we reviewed the room and the grounds. In this post we’ll review the Club Lounge and the Lobby Lounge.
Every morning we had breakfast at the Club Lounge. We found the lounge to be clean, modern and it was never crowded.
We chose the same table every day, by the glass doors that led to the balcony. Every morning was clear and crisp with the sound of birds chirping.
After we walked in we took our seats the attendant came over to take our drink order. After that we headed to the buffet area. There was a plethora of fruit, milks, cereals, yogurt and breads.
There was an omelet ordering window with an attendant ready to take our order. If an omelet isn’t what you are in the mood for, there’s plenty of other choices. Turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, yogurt and pastries are a few of the many choices you will find. You can also order from the Club Lounge menu.
In the afternoon the Club Lounge holds casual afternoon tea with drinks and light snacks. It was a great place to relax after a morning of exploring old town Dubai.
The Club Lounge holds a Chocolates and Digestives gathering in the evening. It includes fruits, wine and other drinks.
The Lobby Lounge is a large open room with hanging sparkling chandeliers and comfortable sitting areas. There’s also a bar where you can order some light meals and drinks.
There’s plenty of choices on the property for eating.
The Afternoon English tea is served in the beautiful Lobby Lounge. The day we left the Afternoon English Tea was being served and there was a harpist in the lounge making it for a relaxing afternoon.
The Traditional Tea experience is 195 AED and the Royal Tea experience, which includes a glass of champagne is 305 AED. That’s about $50 USD and $76 USD per person, depending on the conversion rate.
The Club Lounge with its many offerings was an excellent place for breakfast and light snacks in the afternoon. If it’s included in your stay definitely take advantage of this great perk!
