The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert

Now a Ritz-Carlton partner hotel, this alluring resort is a hidden haven of luxury encompassed by acres of private nature reserve amidst the vast rolling desert dunes. Described as not so much a hotel as a life experience, this is the first hotel in the UAE to offer an all-pool-villa experience, ensuring magical Arabian nights and a real sense of romance and serenity. Located around 20 minutes away from the resort also lies the beautiful Ras Al Khaimah Beach and the unique seaside sanctuary that holds direct access to the Arabian Gulf white sands. Whether you’re looking for an unforgettable adventure or a tranquil retreat, the resort has everything to make the perfect holiday. Nestling in the tranquil and eco-rich Wadi Khadeja, and surrounded by the unique Ghaf Tree, the UAE's national tree, the resort perfectly blends the local Arab culture with the Banyan Tree brand's zen-like ambience, to give it a style that is all its own.

Traditional Welcome

Arriving through the covered entrance walkway, guests are immediately struck by the intricate architecture of the traditional mud-brick building, with its characteristic Arab touches including ornate carvings and lattice woodwork. In the check-in area, through a set of huge wooden doors, guests sit on sofas enjoying refreshments of dates, fresh juice, and hibiscus tea, along with cold towels, while their check-in is processed. Throughout the interiors, there are dark woods, high ceilings, and metal lanterns at every corner. A holiday to Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah is truly an experience like nothing else.

Fabulous Dining

The hotel provides guests with a choice of two fabulous restaurants: The Safranand Al Waha. At the Safran, you dine on an ornate four-poster table platform and are served delicious authentic Thai cuisine. While enjoying your meal you can also gaze over the nature reserve's watering hole and marvel at the antics of the wild oryx and gazelle that gather there every evening. At the Al Waha, which means oasis in Arabic, you can choose to enjoy Arabian specialities either on the outdoor terrace or amidst the spectacular interior design, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing a stunning view of the sand dunes. After dinner, you can even relax with a cocktail under the stars at the Moon Bar's rooftop terrace lounge.

These luxury restaurants however are far from the only dining choices you’ll have during your stay. The Destination Dining programme for instance allows you to experience a private dinner of traditional dishes while sitting Bedouin-style around a campfire amid the rolling sand dunes. Another deluxe dining option is right at the top of the Safran Tower, built as a traditional Arab watchtower, you’ll enjoy fantastic service from a private butler and chef while taking in the amazing views across the desert.

Incredible Range of Activities

Many factors set the Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah hotel apart, but one of the most remarkable is the phenomenal range of unique activities and experiences on offer.

At the activity centre guests can choose to saddle up for a horse or camel ride through the dunes, set off in a 4x4 for a desert safari, engage in archery, or assemble for a guided nature walk, taking you on a journey of discovery to the peak of the Al Janas mountain, where mysterious geological formations and hidden ancient villages may lie. At the tented Falconry Deck among the Ghaf trees, you can watch a falconry display while at the indoor and outdoor Falconry Mews. Home to the Middle East's only falconry course, you can learn falconry and meet the indigenous hawks, owls, falcons and eagles.

During your stay, you may also choose to indulge in the luxurious facilities available. Whether it be a relaxing visit to the spa to enjoy massages and body treatments, or a visit to the indoor/outdoor pool. When holidaying at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah there will always be a new experience ahead. Enquire today to get a quote on your next luxury holiday.
