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.

This hotel was perfect for anyone who wants a quiet break away. We were upgraded on arrival to a room which has absolutely huge! The view was overlooking the golf course which was great. Rooms were immaculate and had everything you need and more. Restaurants were good in the hotel. The restaurant for breakfast paid through the hotel was exceptional and had so much selection and the quality was really good. Beach and pool were excellent and very big. Adult only pool was a great place to chill with free cabanas and a bar/restaurant attached to it which was nice. Staff at the hotel couldn’t be more friendly or helpful. Couldn’t think of a single fault and will definitely be back. Read less

Even the fussiest guest will be pleased in this hotel. I’m usually not the person who cares much about the interior or decor of a hotel, but this hotel’s interior cannot be overlooked. The interior design is a masterpiece. Our room is very spacious with charming colors. Staff are friendly and attentive whether at the reception, pool or housekeeping. It’s obvious that the hotel staff have done a rigorous hospitality training. Breakfast is supreme, it includes all types of food a guest may think of, but what I really like is the special dietary options and detox juices. It’s also very thoughtful that water and ice are served to guests at the pool for free. I highly recommend this hotel and would certainly come back with my family Read less

the structure and the personnel are just fantastic. the front desk people, the room service, the restaurants, everything was beyond expectations, even the valet parking. what was very poor was the kids club (which was the reason why we choose this hotel). the staff was very small (max 2 people), the program which was written on paper was already by itself repetitive, and anyways not respected. just a bit of face painting and a lot of television watching. i would have expected they would have involved the kids in activities, pool playing and so on. they even grouped children 4 years old with kids which were 11 years old. this is a pity, because this was the only bad part of a fantastic stay. but the problem is that we choose this hotel because of the kids club itself.

Just returned from a week at the W A .. it is an absolutely amazing hotel . Total splendour and luxury ... We had a deluxe balcony room with a view of the golf course . The room was huge !!!! There was everything in there that we needed : mini bar , towels , robe, slippers , toiletries ... etc . It was spotlessly clean . The bed , duvet and pillows were all so comfy ! There was a range of restaurants to use , with an exceptional range of foods .. The main restaurant was fabulous , with a brilliant variety every day . There was 2 main pools - we used the ‘adult only ‘ which was good . The hotel is on the beach , there was a vast amount of sun beds with parasols , and towels provided . Cold drinking water was provided free, but there was also a bar and restaurant by the pool where you could buy drinks and food . The staff were amazing and couldn’t do enough for you ! Especially at the Siddahta Bar, Katy and Vicky who were always friendly , attentive and so helpful , and Pooja who was always there with a drink and a smile when you needed it . The family pool and sunbed area was away from the adult area, so we were not disturbed at all. But again , that area was perfect for families , with activities for the kids. Majid , the Concierge , made sure that we always had everything we needed , and was particularly helpful and attentive . He even arranged a boxed breakfast for us to take away as we had an early morning flight . The weather was around 40-44 degrees every day , cooling to around 38 at night , but everywhere inside was AC. We went for a relaxing holiday , where we was looked after ... we certainly got that and more .. we will definitely be going back ! Read less
