Caesars Palace opened up earlier this year and although I was invited to the launch event (Gordon Ramsay was the special guest) I couldn’t make it so I missed out on seeing what all the fuss was about. To be totally honest, I didn’t really bother to go and see it since as I think everyone living in Dubai is kind of under the assumption that Bluewaters Island isn’t really fully open as yet.
It was mine and Hubby’s wedding anniversary recently and my parents gifted us with a staycation at Caesars Palace. I actually wasn’t sure if I’d like it and thought it may be a bit overly flamboyant for my liking but I was pleasantly surprised at how understated it was – there was the odd flamboyant splashes across the hotel but in a classy and very artistic way. If you’re thinking of visiting then I would definitely recommend Caesars Palace and the walk around Bluewaters Island is beautiful – the view of JBR skyline is stunning.
The rooms were modern and I loved the layout of how the bathroom was slightly hidden yet still open and adjacent to the bed. The staff were very friendly and what I really liked was how they were genuinely interested in where you’re from and what plans you have whilst staying. It didn’t seem like the standard script of what they are told to say. I ordered late night dessert on one night at the Roman lounge cafe and when I walked away a staff member ran up behind and gave me a huge golden chocolate coin (like the penny sweets you got back in the day). The little things like this make a difference.
Our room was prepared in the typical Anniversary style layout (which was really pretty) – Rose petals with the towels shaped like Swans etc. They also delivered chocolate covered strawberries which were so delicious and my favorite type of dessert!
If you visit this place then I’d recommend trying out Hell’s Kitchen for which I’ll write a separate blog about soon!
