Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre opens

We've heard that the much-anticipated 341-room Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) opened its doors today, marking the second Ritz-Carlton in Dubai and the sixth property in the region for the luxury hotel company.

The new property will be the only hotel directly linked to the complex of buildings in the Dubai International Financial Centre so we're sure that the hotel bar, No. 5, will serve as a prime meeting and mingle spot. 

At No. 5 guests will discover a 100-foot wine wall featuring 3000 bottles of varying vino as well additional dining venues including Blue Rain, the signature Thai fine-dining restaurant; Can Can, a French all-day dining brasserie and the Center Cut steakhouse. Nice Touch: Each restaurant boasts an expansive outdoor terrace.

The new Ritz also features a 10-storey cascading waterfall that tumbles directly into the courtyard facing the lobby while eight additional water features are featured throughout the hotel highlighting a feng-shui style.

In terms of a-list amenities, guests will find extensive meeting facilities, a fully equipped health club and a Ritz-Carlton Spa, offering 13 treatment rooms.
