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.

Beautiful Hotel, amenities and beach, but do not book a golf view room, which is facing the main road and is situated above the main hotel entrance. During the night it's almost impossible to sleep due to cars roaring and honking, noisy motorcycles and loud music. At 5:30 am, the muezzin is starting his prayer.

In my 11 years in UAE this is one of my best and fave brunches! On a friend’s invite, i travelled from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah to join her for brunch The set up was pleasant, uber cool, not crowded, looks almost exclusive —- neatly placed picnic tables with picnic baskets and a few tables in the center, surrounded by food and drink stations. They have grilled meat (the tenderloin is divine) and seafood, pasta, japanese, desserts, drinks. The drinks were served slow at the beginning but i got my Hendricks so forgiven :) We asked our table to be moved near the stage and wish granted, lovely and accommodating staff! And yeah, they have live music courtesy of the uber talented Kane Smith. Though playing solo, his music rendition of pop, rock songs and powerful guitar prowess just gave the brunch the extra flavor it needed. Will we come back? Oh yeah!!! Read less
