The five-star hotel will also offer Ronaldo the best of dishes from China, Japan, India and the Middle East, with the freshest ingredients to order. The hotel is situated within a mall which houses luxury shops, such as Louis Vuitton. Also on the premises are tennis courts, massage treatments and a spa, which contains a sauna and steam room
Staff have reportedly been asked not to request selfies with Ronaldo, though he has been accommodating towards guests.
At his unveiling, he said he was excited to move to the Middle East. “I’m so proud to make this big decision in my life. In Europe my work is done. I won everything and played for the most important clubs in Europe. This is a new challenge.”
