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.

Having stayed at the RAK Waldorf on many occasions before, I was expecting a hight standard of service and luxury. However, this was not the case and the RAK Waldorf has lowered it's standards and started to 'cut corners'. The regular rooms are now looking tired and shabby. The room had a damp smell and the bathroom door did not close (unless slammed shut). The adults only pool is normally a real asset to a property. However, on this occasion, a less than relaxing experience. At about mid day the music was extremely loud - and even more so when the DJ arrived. What used to be a sanctuary has become an extremely uncomfortable experience. The 'concept', as explained by a member of staff, is one of a beach party. The music was lowered slightly upon raising this with staff, but not enough, so we cut our pool visit short and returned to the room. The Lexington Grill has changed it's menu (less exclusive) and become more casual. However, the food quality was good and service was acceptable. Read less

I came for a solo staycation for a few days to relax and recover from my first trimester and hectic work schedule. On my first day, I saw that the spa was offering a mommy to be massage.
