The marina area around the Ritz-Carlton is dotted with towering skyscrapers, but this six-story resort has nothing to worry about when it comes to its gorgeous view -- it's got a front row seat right on the beach. All rooms take advantage of this, with balconies that overlook the Gulf and/or the resort's pool and garden area. Rooms are a mix of classic European and Arabic design, with large sitting areas and some of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on (you literally melt into the mattress).
A Club Level room gains you access to a private lounge (where there's food and drinks throughout the day and free Wi-Fi) and a special concierge. The Ritz-Carlton Spa offers "rituals" using Carita Paris products in a Balinese-inspired space (try the Degrees hot stone massage). The Lobby Lounge is popular for its afternoon tea, and the outdoor Amaseena serves a traditional Lebanese menu buffet-style in Bedouin tents with live music, a belly dancer, and 109 different flavors of shisha. The hotel's signature La Baie offers seafood with a strong Asian influence. Kids have access to their own play area, pool, and activities. Service here is superb.
Facilities: 5 restaurants; bar; 3 pools; private beach; 4 floodlit tennis courts; 2 squash courts; miniature golf course; 2 golf courses (5 min. away); gym; spa w/2 ladies-only rooms; children's program; concierge; 2 salons (men's and women's); 24-hr. room service; laundry; technology butler, Internet.

Good but could be better
I stayed here for three nights in November 2012. The staff, as always, was very helpful and spoke English quite well. The room was nice but rather basic with a good view of the pool...

Still just as excellent as ever
I came here some 12 years ago and returned recently having escaped from another hotel suffering from building noise. Still just as excellent as ever - perhaps a little jaded round...
