Beach resort promises a royal treat
Royal treatment is promised to guests at the Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa in Dubai.The hotels promises to adapt everything "it does around you and your individual needs". Located on a stretch of private beach with stunning sea views of the Gulf, the resort claims the second largest room count of any hotel in Dubai. It offers a variety of products catering to the needs of both leisure and business travellers, those looking for personalised service, luxury or groups requiring a range of facilities and believes in providing each and every guest with "the royal treatment", says marketing and communications manager Jaideep Bhatia. "It is this philosophy of giving 'the royal treatment' to each and every guest, which has resulted in the resort scooping a bagful of awards at the Hotel Intelligence Awards," said Bhatia. Recognised as the hotel Oscars of the Middle East, the hotel won the best spa and the best hotel design project awards last year. It was also highly commended in the best environmentally friendly hotel, the best restaurant innovation, the best hotel suite and the best PR and marketing categories. The resort is spread over three buildings, each with its own reception facilities. It features 206 deluxe rooms, 30 deluxe suites, one Presidential Suite and one Royal Apartment in the main hotel building; 108 executive rooms in the Club; plus 130 rooms, 22 suites and two Royal suites in the Tower. All rooms have private balconies, satellite TV and 24-room service as well as every amenity from hair-dryers to welcome fruit baskets amongst the many other benefits. The resort offers a wide array of choices on the food & beverage front. It has recently launched Ossigeno - an Italian restaurant with a fresh approach to Italian cuisine and will be shortly opening a bigger Beach Bar with its own outdoor terrace. The Caracalla Spa and Health Club provides facilities such as large gym overlooking the gardens, aerobics centre, ladies and men's sauna, steam and Jacuzzi areas, treatment rooms for massage and other beauty therapies plus a unisex Roman-style hammam pool complex.
