The unmistakeable palace that is the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah (formerly Al Hamra Palace Beach Resort), inspired by the Arabian palaces of old, is a marvel. Dome-like nuances of traditional Arabic architecture meet with super-modern influences in a seamless blend. To the front you see 350m of private beach and the azure expanse of the Persian Gulf, whilst to the rear is a stunning 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Peter Harradine. And peaking over the horizon on the Omani coastline, you see the distant Al Hajjar Mountains.
Inside this enormous yet intricate structure, the opulence continues. The hotel’s grand rooms and suites are surpassed only by the grander-still lobby and beautifully designed restaurants and lounges. Everything at the Waldorf Ras Al Khaimah has a touch of Arabic class about it; this is no run-of-the-mill beach hotel.
The 1,650-square-foot spa is a blissful haven, offering personalised luxury treatments, and is connected with a state of the art fitness centre with sauna. And for guests seeking a relaxing day of golf, a stunning course lies directly behind Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah.
Being located in Ras Al Khaimah also has its distinct benefits, feeling far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai to enjoy some seclusion, yet still only 40 minutes from the airport. Meanwhile guests can enjoy all manner of adventure like enthralling water activities including great sailing and fishing, or alternatively the desert safaris and off-roading so adored by visitors to the UAE.
