Waldorf Astoria is as iconic to the coastline of Ras Al Khaimah as the Burj Khalifa is to Dubai. The imposing Alhambra palace-inspired multi-award-winning resort nestles in perfectly manicured beachfront gardens. The resort boasts lavish marble interiors, a golden clock, glorious art, the famed Peacock Alley, a diverse collection of restaurants, extraordinary accommodation and a therapeutic spa. The Waldorf Astoria is ideal for a lavish afternoon tea, staycation or an extended holiday.

 

Seen for miles as you approach Al Hamra, the iconic palace-style hotel looms spectacularly on the shorelines of the Arabian Gulf. Inspired by Alhambra Palace, one of the world’s most celebrated monuments of Islamic architecture, the Waldorf Astoria has exquisite Arabian detailing throughout. You’ll notice the towering golden clock as you enter the lobby, Kufic art, and a distinctive nod to the pearl fishing trade with mother of pearl features throughout the resort.

 

Almost a decade since its opening, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah has received hundreds of awards and remains a firm favourite for travellers. The vast rooms offer ocean or golf views,  floor-to-ceiling windows and feature black marble bathrooms with baths-made-for-two and luxury toiletries. True Waldorf service is at the heart of its offerings; each guest has personal concierge services throughout their stay.

 

Choose from the 10 restaurants and lounges that offer world-class international cuisine. Colourful Arabic dishes in Marjan, dry-aged steaks in New York-inspired Lexington Grill, delicate Japanese fare in sophisticated UMI or light salads from beachside Azure.

Resort facilities include a 24-hour fitness centre, two floodlit tennis courts and water sports from wakeboarding to diving. The elegant Waldorf Astoria Spa features herbal baths, floatation beds and blissful treatments.
