New Partnership with Miraj Art Centre, Dubai Set to Further Enrich Guest Experience
February 18, 2015, Dubai, UAE – The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC is offering a new enriching experience for guests of its suites and Club® Level, thanks to a new partnership with Miraj Art Center, Dubai, a gallery and exhibition space, which commemorates 13 centuries of Arabian culture and craftsmanship. Guests of the luxury hotel in Dubai will now be able to explore the center as part of their hotel stay, providing an additional memorable experience to savor and enjoy.
Guests who reserve a stay in a suite or Club® Level room can now receive an educational guided tour of the historical collections, along with complimentary return transportation to the center located in Jumeirah, Dubai. The collections range from ‘Beauty and Divinity’; a decorative range of artefacts adorned with calligraphy, ‘Weaver of Dreams’; an assortment of Persian rugs dating back to the 16th Century, depicting legendary and historic imagery, and ‘Touched with Gold’, a striking collection of papier-mâché pieces, heralding from the Himalayas, richly lacquered with gold, gilded, and encrusted with precious stones.
Located in DIFC, home to an ever-expanding art-scene with 10 international galleries, and a hotel collection of its own of over 130 pieces, art has been part of The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC’s DNA since opening. Lothar Quarz, General Manager, The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC explains:
“Art and craftsmanship is an integral part of the experience at The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC; from our own expanding art collection, to the craftsmanship of our talented culinary teams, we are proud to engage our guests on a level over and above a traditional hotel stay. Our new partnership with Miraj Art Center beautifully complements our existing offering of mostly contemporary art pieces, by providing access to collections steeped in history, as well as an additional insight into the Arabian culture.”
Any guest who chooses to stay in one of the DIFC hotel’s 80 luxury suites or a Club® Level Room or Suite, can avail the tour, with Club guests benefitting additionally from access to the exclusive Club Lounge with complimentary food and beverage offerings, WiFi and a private concierge. Each luxury hotel suite has separate living and sleeping rooms, bathrooms with natural daylight, large marble bath tubs and stand-alone showers, and all suites overlook the picturesque hotel courtyard, or the vibrant center of DIFC.
