Ramadan Kareem to all our guests, associates, visitors, suppliers, neighbours, and friends! We hope you’re Ramadan has been going splendidly so far!
We’ve certainly enjoyed all our iftars so far and we’ve got some great reviews on TripAdvisor for them. Check them out by clicking here. Thanks to all diners who took the time to review us!
If you haven’t been yet, you’ve got about one more week left, so why not pop down to The Cavendish Restaurant in JLT and break your fast with us? If you want to stay on after iftar, we’ve got a great offer in Healey’s for you:
If, on the other hand, your thoughts are already turning to Eid, don’t delay and book your Eid brunch seats today:
No blog update would be complete with a roundup of the latest guest comments we received in our Golden Book at reception, so here they are (see the images in full size by clicking on them):
What’s more, because the hotel has won a Certificate of Excellence every year for the past 5 years, we’ve also been added to the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame!
Thanks to all our guests and TripAdvisor reviewers! We really do like guest comments very much and your comments and reviews ensure that we constantly update our products and services.
If you’re not on TripAdvisor and you’re staying with us, don’t forget to leave us a comment in our Golden Book at reception! At the Bonnington, every guest is a VIP!
You have experienced the Cavendish taste indoors, now experience it outdoors on the newly opened Cavendish Terrace. Located under the shade of the impressive Bonnington Tower and set amongst lush greenery and water features, you can now lunch, brunch, or dine al fresco at the Cavendish.
Enjoy breakfast in the sun, a quick lunch with colleagues outdoors, or a romantic dinner by candlelight, all while experiencing the same great food and service you have come to expect from the Cavendish, but with added fresh air and views of the bustling Almas Tower neighbourhood in JLT.
Why not pop in this month & try the Cavendish dessert of the month?
Today is Wednesday and that means it’s #GuestCommentsWednesday at the Bonnington, too! Our Golden Book has been busy during the past week and here are some of our latest comments:
It’s Wednesday, so we’ll bring you the latest #GuestCommentsWednesday , but also some news of upcoming events at the Bonnington in JLT.
As always at the end of March, #EarthHour is happening this coming Saturday from 8.30 – 9.30 p.m. Dubai time. We’ve been part of it since we first opened our doors and, over the years, have made great inroads into lowering our energy consumption and carbon footprint. The Bonnington was one of the first hotels in new Dubai with solar panels on its roof and LED lighting and motion sensor controls were also part of our setup for years.
Still, there’s also a fun side to Earth Hour and, for us, that means the annual candlelight dinner at the Cavendish Restaurant:
Even more traditional than Earth Hour is the Dubai World Cup, the world’s richest horse racing event, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
As always, we’ll be telecasting it live in our Healey’s Bar & Terrace and this year, we’re throwing in a free welcome drink:
March is one of our favorite months in the year, because of our annual St. Patrick’s Day extravaganza around 17th March. Being Irish owned, we’ve celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in style since we first opened our doors and, from our second year onwards, with our friends from McGettigan’s (who, coincidentally, run their own blog – check it out here).
The McGettigan’s blog is also a good source to find out what’s going on this St. Patrick’s Day, as most of our celebrations will take place in #McGettigansJLT . As always, though, we also have plans for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner in our Cavendish Restaurant and we’ll release the details soon on the restaurant’s Google+ and Facebook pages.
Are you looking for our other March special offers? You can find them here.
Did you know that, for guests in our luxurious serviced apartments, we introduced an exclusive room service dining offer a little while ago? Daily changing specials for only AED 79/portion! Want to see what’s on offer? Just search for hashtag #DoorBellDining on Twitter or on Instagram. We also publish the offers every afternoon on our Facebook and Google+ pages.
We were pleased to welcome Mona from The Monalogues recently. Mona runs a blog that’s worth checking out (you can find it here) and came to try out our Pink Ladies Night in Healey’s Bar and Terrace recently. See what she had to say here.
There’s no denying it, temperatures in Dubai are on the rise again and the days are getting hotter. Now is the perfect time to extend the cool winter climate a little longer by popping into our Leisure Deck Bar on the 11th floor, high above the Jumeirah Lakes Towers.
To make it easier for you to enjoy the breezy evenings, we’ve introduced a special Happy Hour promotion:
If you’re working in hospitality, leisure, or tourism, don’t forget about our weekly Hoteliers Nights in Healey’s Bar & Terrace. Our industry friends get 30% off plus free shisha every Friday!
A little while ago, we also introduced a new, convenient offer, for our long-term guests and apartments residents: #DoorbellDining
Every day, we’ll publish a Doorbell Dining special on our Facebook page and Instagram and apartment residents can simply call Room Service on ext. 570 and place their orders. Our daily specials are excellent value and only cost AED 79/portion. Here’s one of our recent specials – Slow Cooked Chili Turkey, Black Bean Rice, Guacamole, Sour Cream & Warm Breads:
If that’s not your thing and you’d rather watch the #SixNations #Rugby, we can help with that, too!

The 20th edition of the popular Dubai Shopping Festival is in full swing and we’ve got some great offers for you if you’re planning to come to Dubai for some bargain shopping or for one of the many events (click here to find out what’s on):
We’ve also received a few more comments in our Golden Book, so although it’s not #guestcommentswednesday just yet, we’d like to share them with you:
Right now, it’s raining in Dubai, but the sun can’t be far away and once things have dried out a bit, they weather will surely be perfect for a visit to one of Dubai’s many parks or beaches. If you’re planning to head outdoors for some relaxation, why not have a picnic? We’ve just launched our Bonnington Picnic Baskets, which come fully equipped with everything needed for a fabulous picnic in the great outdoors:
Our picnic baskets come in two versions, for two or for four people, and they’re full to the brim with bakery items, salads, sandwiches, cheeses, and sweet treats. You can order them via Room Service or speak to any of our Food & Beverage team-members.
