There’s a new terrace in #JLT

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?

Earth Hour and a new #guestcommentswednesday

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:

Earch-Hour-2015

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:

Hello March! Here’s what’s going on…

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.

The Bonnington has long been part of Worldhotels, the exclusive group of independent hotels that brings together a handpicked portfolio of almost 500 properties in 250 destinations and 65 countries across the world.

At the recently held Annual Worldhotels Conference in Guangzhou, China, our hard work was rewarded and the Bonnington was named as the Worldhotels member with the highest revenue growth generated in 2014.

Our General M10492591_696178810431363_1610097112860007324_nanager, Bruno Guilloux, had this to say about the achievement:

As an independent, family-owned and operated, hotel in a highly competitive market place like Dubai, taking this award is a fantastic achievement.
Having achieved 39% growth in 2014 and taking top spot amongst 500 hotels around the world is justly something to be proud of and is due to the hard work and dedication of all our associates.
Together with the recently awarded TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice award, the Bonnington demonstrates that combining guest satisfaction and outstanding service with revenue growth can be achieved.
