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.

Great stay at this hotel. It’s a stunning location and the interior decor is absolutely beautiful. Staff all very friendly and attentive, the only down side is that service is slow. 30 mins wait every morning for breakfast. Other than that it was fabulous. My son is 11 yrs old and he had a waterskiing lesson with Ishan today. Ishan is one of the guys at adventure sports that offer all the water sports at this hotel. Ishan spent 30 mins teaching my son on land then about 20 mins in the water. My son mastered it first time and absolutely loved it. What a great experience all round. Ishan was very relaxed, kind, funny and most of all a great teacher. Highly recommend. Elvis was also very helpful and friendly when booking and organising the whole thing. Thanks guys 🙏 Read less

Just came back from an amazing stay in WA RAK. From the first moment we stepped through the grand entrance the word MAJESTIC kept popping to my mind. The hotel is massive and you feel the space around you wherever you are within the premises. Fantastic room and great hospitality! Everyone made sure that we have a great time. We spent two nigths in the hotel and were very impressed. Travelled around the UAE this summer due to Covid travel restrictions; stayed on many staycations in many different hotels but WA definitely stands out as one of the best hotels in the UAE. Great foood, great hospitality in a great/grand hotel.There are many different restaurants to choose from. We also had room service on the first night. Again, great service. First day we spent on the beach the other two days we were by the pool (adult only) and beach. Great atmosphere by the pool,lovely background music all day long (gentle, not intrusive) You can book one of the cabanas for the day( there is a mimimum spend) but it is worth it. Lovely pool-side bar food. Best time to visit is in October as the weather is amazing and the sea temperature is just perfect. Pool was also great. The whole experience was sophisticated relaxation. Incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating. Did not want to leave. Staff were very attentive but also discrete. Room was not cleaned after our first night,which we did not mind,actually preferred, due to Covid, but whenever we made a house-keeping request they were quick to attend. Overall it was a five star experience! Highly recommend it! Read less
