9 Reasons Why We Will Miss Ramada Hotel In Bur Dubai Now That It's Going To Be Demolished

It's been around for 33 years


One of Dubai's oldest four-star hotels and a landmark of sorts, Ramada Dubai will be closing on 31 August 2016. The 33-year-old hotel has been home to six restaurants, including gems like Dynasty Chinese and Teppanyaki House. It's restaurant Tamarind Tandoor is also a record holder for having the world’s longest chutney bar (we're talking 100 types of the Indian condiment). The good news though is that staff will be moved to their sister hotel, Ramada Jumeirah or elsewhere in the company. Here's what we will miss...

1. The top notch fortune cookies served at Dynasty

2. The Guinness World Record-holding stained glass window by glass artist, the late John Lawson

At 41 metres, it was listed as the largest stained glass structure in the world.

5. Its location (fab)

6. And the cosy rooms..and the fluffy white dressing gowns

7. The enthusiastic staff that genuinely do their best to put a smile on your face, heroes.

8. The relaxing spa that made you feel on cloud 9

9. The famous chutney bar (can you spot the 100 types here?)
