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.

We stayed for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year and had a very enjoyable break. We went for the half board package and thoroughly enjoyed the dinner options in particular. The rooms are large and well equipt. Our only recommendations for improvement would be to aim to complete housekeeping earlier (although we recognise it was a busy time)… Read more

The rooms are large and well equipt. Our only recommendations for improvement would be to aim to complete housekeeping earlier (although we recognise it was a busy time) and look into whether the good quality breakfast could be further enhanced since they were not able to cater to our requests there.

Violeta at check in was so accommodating and helpful we arrived early and my husband had forgotten his ID , they made no issue out of it and accepted an email copy of it we did get it brought later to the hotel.… Read more
We stayed twice within the space of 2 weeks here. The first time was just my husband and myself we were upgraded to a junior suite 832. Violeta at check in was so accommodating and helpful we arrived early and my husband had forgotten his ID , they made no issue out of it and accepted an email copy of it we did get it brought later to the hotel. The junior suite had fabulous sea views and really spacious. Lunch at Azure on the outdoor terrace was lovely especially the burrata salad . Spent a few hours at the family pool and lots of beds. The long Sandy beach was so lovely to walk along. Adult pool a little more lively and busier but still nice. Dinner at Lexington Grill was excellent and service brilliant too and some lovely choices of wine to accompany the succulent steaks. Room and bed were very comfy and they went through extra mile decorating the bed and also surprising us with an anniversary cake. The rooms were well sanitised in fact felt the whole hotel had done a great job. Easy check out the following morning. Our second trip we were 2 couples and we had rooms 824&826. Again fantastic views but actually preferred these rooms as they were large and better layout. Again bathrooms and bed all very comfortable. Mirjana did our check in and again we were able to check in early. Spent some time at the pool and had lunch burgers there which was nice. Unfortunately our dinner at Murjan was very disappointing the food, drinks the prices and even the service wasn’t so good there. Drinks in the lounge afterward were lovely. Breakfast was excellent lots of choices and fantastic service again. Really excellent both stays and looking forward to our next staycation there. Read less
