Ras Al Khaimah

Are you on the hunt for year-round sunshine, stunning beaches and a five-star hotel all for a reasonable price tag? Then Ras Al Khaimah is the luxury holiday destination for you.

Boasting a wealth of world-class hotels all comprising a plethora of family-friendly facilities, delicious dining destinations and a host of watersport opportunities, boredom simply isn’t in Ras Al Khaimah’s vocabulary.

The northernmost emirate is a world-away from its extravagant neighbours. Offering a slower-paced antidote to the buzz of Dubai, here rest and recuperation is top of the agenda, with the odd Middle Eastern adventure thrown in for good measure.

With the Hajar Mountains as its backdrop, breathtaking coastlines on its outskirt and rich terracotta desert planes everywhere in between, an authentic Middle Eastern experience is guaranteed in this scenic paradise. Explore the vast stretches of golden sand on a four-wheel drive safari or, for a more traditionally Arab adventure, enjoy a camel trek.

Would you rather have a more relaxing desert experience? Al Wadi is your top spot. Saddle up at the equestrian centre or utterly indulge with a spa day. From massages to facials and even full body rituals, rest assured that every inch of your being will be rubbed, pummelled and preened as your stresses simply melt away. For the ultimate experience, why not stay overnight in a Bedouin tent?

Head back to civilisation you’ll find golfing opportunities as well as numerous family-orientated day trips. The arctic themed waterpark Ice Land Water Park is a sure way to cool off from the Arabian heat. Comprising more than 30 slides, a huge wave pool, an Olympic-size lap pool, beautiful beach and private cabanas, kickback in the shade with a good book while the little ones (and big kids) splash to their heart’s content.  

WINGED BOOTS WISDOM


Ras Al Khaimah is an hours’ drive from Dubai making the neon-lit city close enough for a day trip during your stay. Head to the noisy neighbouring emirate for a whirlwind city tour, and be sure to stop off at Dubai Mall to update your wardrobe.

Talking of wardrobes, it’s worth mentioning that outside of the hotels Ras Al Khaimah expects a more conservative dress code, however shorts and bikinis within the resort won’t warrant a second look.
