Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah the fourth Ritz-Carlton in the UAE

After signing an agreement in 2016 with RAK National Hotels (RAKNH) to revamp and rebrand two of the city's most lavish properties, Ritz-Carlton finally re-inaugurated the first venue in Al Wadi Desert. Last week, the Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert re-opened its doors to the public with lavish interiors that blend in with the stunning natural surroundings.

Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah the fourth Ritz-Carlton in the UAE

Ritz-Carlton finally made its entry into the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah last week after inaugurating its first property in Al Wadi Desert.

This important event comes after two years of intense work to renovate and refurbish the exquisite 5-star venue that emphasises on harmonising luxury and nature.

The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert was the brand’s fourth property to open its doors in the UAE.

Located on a stunning 500-hectare wildlife reserve, the Ritz-Carlton hotel now features 101 revamped luxury villas complete with private pools and five-star amenities. According to a statement by the brand’s authorities, the hotel's accommodations have been carefully tailored and redesigned to offer guests:

“Tranquillity, serenity and world-class service.”

After attending the re-launching ceremony, Yannis Anagnostakis, CEO of RAKHH and member of the board of RAKHH and RAKNH stated:

“We are thrilled to welcome this leading luxury brand to Ras Al Khaimah and we look forward to seeing it contribute to implementing the vision of the Emirate, bringing new standards for hospitality and best in class services to visitors of the region.”

In addition to opulent villas, the Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert offers guests an amazing selection of refined on-site restaurants. For those who enjoy the simplicity of local produce and have high esteem for quality, visting the signature Farmhouse is an excellent option, whilst the lovely Kaheela restaurant serves the most delicious Levantine cuisine.

In terms of entertainment, Ritz-Carlton has respected the resort’s initial intention and its principle of protecting and embracing the beauty of its natural surroundings. In order to provide visitors with unique experiences, the hotel hosts the first Ritz-Carlton Equestrian and Adventure Centre for guests to discover and explore the natural desert landscape on an organised horse trek through the nature reserve.

The opening of The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert is the first of the two properties to open. Its sister resort Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach should follow shortly, as it was announced it should be ready by early 2018. Edging the Arabian Gulf, The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach offers sumptuous seclusion along shimmering azure waters and pristine white sands.

Guests will find privacy in luxury beachfront pool villas, appointed with 5-star hotel amenities. Distinctive dining and ocean-inspired wellness experiences further enhance this breath-taking coastal haven that should be ready to re-open soon.
