The staff, especially Simone and Chaudry were absolutely spectacular: attention to detail, entertaining and appropriate level of conversation, and spot on menu recommendations. Had the octopus as a starter, rizotto for main, and the chocolate melt at the end. Thoroughly recommend both the Puglia and the House white wines. Simone even brought a complimentary limoncello to wrap up the meal.... More

I've been in Splendido for dinner to celebrate an important event. The restaurant was quite full and Marie was so kind and patient with us, she gave us a really good table in a very nice location in the garden. The service of Simone was impeccable, he recommended us really good plates (good job chefs). At the end they literally... More

However it seems as if it is now includes the hotel's half board package and has lost it's more exclusive feel for a special occasion.

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
