Waldorf Astoria, Ras Al Khaimah

Ras Al Khaimah, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

Inspired by the palaces of the Arabian Peninsula, you’ll feel like royalty at the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah! In a prime beachside location, 1 hour from Dubai International Airport, there’s an 18-hole championship golf course at your disposal and a world-class spa for banishing any lingering cares. All of this, combined with the legendary True Waldorf Service ensures a memorable stay. When you can tear yourself away from the grandeur of your spacious room or suite, not one but two enormous swimming pools await you – grab a cocktail, a good book and stake your claim on the sundeck. For more active moments, there are water sports in abundance down at the beach. If you prefer dry land, a few rounds of golf are a must, if only to admire the stunning fairways! Whilst parents are at play, the kids can escape to their very own children’s club offers a variety of activities. There are also plenty of family excursions to enjoy – desert safari anyone? When it comes to dining, the Waldorf boasts an eclectic selection. Feast on food from around the world, including Europe, Middle East and Japan. There are also more casual options with pizza, pasta and salads served by the poolside or on the beach. After dinner, head to 17Squared on the 17th floor, a sophisticated bar and lounge, it also boasts stunning 360 degree views of Ras Al Khaimah.

I really like how the hotel is having the right precautions to make us feel safe and happy from the car park until reaching the room. Special thank to Ahmed in the adults pool for the great service. I also appreciate all the other workers for being helpful and I’m noticing how they keep sanitizing every few minutes which make us feel comfortable.

When we heard that some hotels in different Emirates had their beach and pool open during these tough confinement times we decided to go to Rak to enjoy the beautiful beach, pools and restaurants this hotel had to offer. It was great. I only knew this hotel to use the beach in the context of daytrips. We tried 3 of the restaurants: the steakhouse, the Arabic and the Italian- all were of outstanding quality and the service in the restaurants was very good. Seems they never closed during the pandemic and were operating at a third capacity- and clearly they were kept busy all along. Read less

We spent two amazing weekends during these difficult times. Unparalleled service, friendly staff and good food. The adult pool is The Spot if you want to chill while listening to very good lounge music. The service is impeccable and special thanks to Ahmad Hassan who made our stay enjoyable. Bravo!
