It was a near perfect stay experience and exceeded my expectations. The service level was exemplary. I was benchmarking my current stay at Raffles against my earlier stays at other 5 star hotels in Dubai over the past two years and Raffles stood out head and shoulder over the competition. I am looking forward to my next stay in November at the Raffles Dubai

Hotel's Favourite
Had a fabulous stay at this hotel back in January. We’ve been coming to Dubai for the past 8 years and stayed in many of the top hotels, however Raffles is something else – what an experience! Me and my husband were staying in another hotel on Jumeirah beach and decided to take a trip to visit the Raffles Saloon bar. We got chatting to a member of staff called Woulstain who recommended we try Raffles hotel next time we visit and book a Skyline room for the views of the city. The hotel looked so amazing, and as it was our anniversary a few days later – we decided we couldn’t wait until our next visit, so we booked a club room and checked out of our beach hotel, and boy am I glad we did! From the minute we arrived at the hotel we were in awe of the outstanding service and treated like royalty. How a hotel of this size can give you the level of attention and service, to make you feel like you are the only guest they have is truly amazing. Check in, departure, and everything else in between was just perfect. As for the room, well there is only one word to describe it…WOW. It was on one of the higher floors of the hotel, the room was huge and incredibly beautiful. Everything was spotless and sanitised and it felt very Covid safe, plus the balcony was also very big – perfect for those views! To make the stay even better, the hotel surprised us with a special cake for our anniversary which was a lovey gesture. I’d like to say a hug thank you to Mila at check in, Syed our wonderful butler, Summer and her amazing hospitality team, Mars at Azur and of course not forgetting Woulstain for his recommendation of the hotel. I can safely say we will be back as soon as we can travel again!

Gorgeous Hotel with amazing service. This staff knows how to treat the customer. Large Clean rooms with very comfortable beds. The hotel is connected to the mall. The Solo restaurant in the hotel was outstanding. The breakfast buffet provided a wide array of delicious foods. The Spa service was wonderful with a fully loaded exercise gym and large outdoor swimming pool. Great for couples or families.
