I am on a 6-month assignment in Abu Dhabi & first time in Abu Dhabi. I am staying at the Ritz-Carlton. The Lounge team (Ranga, Reggie & Faith) provided First-class service. They made me feel welcomed, at home & well taken care of with their professional, yet warm, friendly, caring attitudes. Thank You Ranga, Reggie, Faith :) Thao 17Jun21

My family stayed at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal for summer vacation and the staff was awesome! They went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of during our stay. We are seasoned travelers, and this was by far the best service that we have ever experienced at a hotel/resort!

After traveling to the Ritz-Carlton Grand Canal in Abu Dhabi for several years, it has truly become a home away from home. While the facilities are all fantastic, it is the staff that truly sets it apart. Over the years, I have enjoyed getting to know the staff, specifically those in the club lounge. I was thrilled to learn of Ranga’s recent promotion to Manager of the Club Lounge on my most recent trip...he is one of the best!!!
