The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah
It’s been one of our favorites since it opened. Full on zen garden ultra-modernist resort for the discerning type. Everything here, pure first class so why not get a private beach cabana with (for once) a customizable menu served by your private butler. Hold that thought – why not stay in one of private poolside villas and have a barbeque, chef and butler all to yourselves? It’s the sensible option. Call for more information: 06 504 4888
The Ritz Carlton, Dubai, JBR Splendido
There is always a lot going on at The Ritz and we couldn’t mention one of these without the other. Splendido has a Tuscan style terrace to enjoy the weather or suitably formal affair inside. Either choice is a winner and Chef Francesco has created the ‘San Valentino’ with handmade tagliatelle with lobster bisque, oysters and in total 5 courses. Add a smooth jazz band and its sophistication at its best.
The Ritz Carlton, Dubai, JBR – Blue Jade
We were blown away by Blue Jade last visit. China, Singapore, Japan, and Thailand come together to support world peace. Well no but Blue Jade mingles all those flavours over 5 sharing style courses so you can imagine the variety of tastes on offer. If pan seared foi gras, Alaskan crabmeat soup and stir-fried tiger prawns don’t sound great nothing will. With some great live entertainment thrown in it’s a good choice. Call to book : 04 399 4000
