The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert

  • Deluxe

‘Desert Oasis, All-Pool Villas’

The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert is a secluded retreat housing a collection of all-pool villa accommodations, designed in a Bedouin nomadic style with views of the surrounding desert. Indigenous antelope species roam the grounds freely and can be viewed from the comfort of your terrace. The Al Wadi Nature Reserve spans 500 hectares across the Ghaf Tree wooded valley within Wadi Khadeeja and can be explored through a range of activities offered by the hotel. Learn the basics of horse riding at the stables, venture into the sand dunes on the top of a camel or watch in awe at the live falconry shows. After a day of discovery, indulge in a holistic therapy within one of the spa’s pavilions. A range of restaurants offer the finest examples of Middle-Eastern and Indian cooking.
