From desert sanctuaries to coastal havens, and for the adventurous at heart, beachside glamping, Ras Al Khaimah offers couples private and secluded hotel options that showcase the natural beauty of the destination.

Private pool villas among the dunes, posh tents with sublime sea views and suites with direct beach access are geared towards couples on vacation, paired with intimate experiences such as spa treatments for two, private dining in stunning locations, floating theatre nights under the stars, and much more.


The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert

Couples can connect with nature and culture amid the natural beauty of a 1,235-acre protected desert reserve at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert. Luxury villas, some in remote locations, are inspired by Bedouin architecture and feature private outdoor pools, cosy seating areas, opulent bathrooms with a soaking tub, and uninterrupted views of the dunes.

For an unforgettable stay for two, the resort’s Experience Concierge can arrange a desert trek on camel or horseback, a private archery lesson, a sunset safari drive, an evening of stargazing, or a four-course bespoke dining experience in private locations such as the Al Wadi Tower or the desert. And did we mention The Rainforest Journeyhydrothermal spa experience?


The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach

Retreat from the world in one of the 32 secluded luxury villas at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach, each with its own swimming pool, large deck and direct beach access, creating an elevated feeling of total seclusion.

Bespoke in-villa and beach dining experiences provide couples with total privacy, as do the waterside pavilions at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, where the soothing sounds of the Arabian Gulf create a sense of peace.

If you are planning on tying the knot, the island-inspired resort is one of Ras Al Khaimah’s most stunning wedding locations, with white-sand beach as the backdrop or even the venue.


InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort & Spa

Escapism for couples defines the getaway experience at InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort & Spa, located on Hayat Island and surrounded by the sparkling shores of the Arabian Gulf, expansive terracotta desert and soaring mountains.

Choose from a selection of sea-facing romantic havens, from rooms and suites to private pool villas, or treat yourselves to Club InterContinental with extras including access to the Club InterContinental Lounge with a private pool, deep soaking jacuzzi and deluxe culinary offers throughout the day, including evening canapes, cocktails and afternoon tea.

While away the hours on the private beach, which overlooks the vibrant blue Arabian Gulf, spend warm, sunny days by the infinity pool, enjoy a variety of water sports, explore the surrounding mountains, or sink into sunset dips in the sea.


Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

Rooms and suites with romantic views of the Arabian Sea and Hajar Mountains, eight stylish restaurants, a luxury spa with a couples’ treatment room, and a nearby 18-hole golf course make Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah an appealing destination resort for couples looking to maximise their time in Ras Al Khaimah.

Relax by the pool, talk a walk on the private white-sand beach, or enjoy a sophisticated meal for two at Lexington Grill & Bar, serving grilled seafood, plant based, and meat dishes crafted using a variety of techniques for a dining experience to remember.


Longbeach Campground

What could be cosier than beachside glamping with access to a 300-metre beach, pool, outdoor spa, beach dining, water sports, a floating theatre and more? At Longbeach Campground, the first of its kind facility, couples can embark on a romantic adventure on the shores of Ras Al Khaimah.

Blending tent-style accommodation with luxury amenities, accommodation options include deluxe tents, safari tents and even a hexagon-structured dome. But perhaps the top pick for two is a private Sunset Terrace Suite by the beach. More a miniature home, it features a sauna, outdoor jacuzzi, hammock, terrace seating, direct beach access, panoramic ocean views, and more.
