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.

Waldorf RAK is honestly hard to fault. We live in the UAE and stay here regularly and each and every time they surprise us. Even though it's a large property you really feel like every stay is personalised. From little things like being accommodating of early check ins, making sure roll out beds are in your room by the time you check in, to game changers like spontaneous upgrades we love it here. The rooms are timeless with all the special features you'd expect in a five star hotel. The restaurants are stunning (Umi is to die for) and the service is outstanding. The beach is lovely white fluffy sand and plenty of space and loungers, the pools are large, with both family friendly areas and an adult pool for those looking for more privacy. Like I said we just can't fault it. Sometimes when you stay in a high end property you can feel let down, never happen here. True Waldorf Astoria luxury! Read less

This one has it all and if somebody writes anything else then do not believe them. Beauty is the word, everything is at a higher level. Yes everything here is a little bit more expensive but like in your everyday life you get what you pay for. I am a gold member at hilton and I have found my home away from home :-) The people who work here are very proud of this place and very very helpful. I will give you one example; every morning we went to the beach and the beach staff would prepare our sunbeds and serve an ice cooler with 4 bottles of water at NO cost, this is a small thing to do but boy did we feel good about it! We will be back October 3rd. Read less

Incredible hotel with excellent, attentive staff from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. Double twin room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Pool and beach facilities second to none. Dinner at the Lexington on a previous visit was also outstanding. Would recommend a stay to anyone.
