Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has opened a luxury resort on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, a perfect getaway off the northern coast of the UAE.
The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach, is the second luxury resort for The Ritz-Carlton brand in Ras Al Khaimah, and the brand’s fifth property in the UAE.
Located just one hour away from Dubai, The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach seamlessly blends natural beauty and timeless luxury to create an intimate beach retreat.
The resort features 32 luxurious tented villas, each with its own pool and direct beach access, offering comfort and privacy complemented by breathtaking views and indulgent amenities. Guests can choose from two types of villas: The Al Naseem Villas feature local design elements inspired by traditional Bedouin architecture and offer an elevated level of seclusion, while the Al Bahar Villas include open views and private beachfront access.
“This resort will offer travellers an ideal launchpad from which to explore and enjoy the UAE’s rich and diverse landscape and tranquil environments,” said Amit Arora, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach.
“This stunning new property truly embodies the destination’s culture and traditions while also providing guests with the highest standards of Arabian hospitality, serving as a testament to the long-standing commitment of The Ritz-Carlton to creating unforgettable memories.”
Immersive programming gives guests the opportunity to explore Ras Al Khaimah’s kaleidoscope of experiences along the shores of the Al Hamra Beach. Resort guests can discover the natural beauty of the area with an afternoon of paddle boarding, a fishing trip on the coast of Ras Al Khaimah, a sunrise or sunset yoga experience overlooking the seashores, or simply enjoying the resort’s private beach.
Meanwhile, young guests can explore the natural wonders and cultural traditions of the destination through the Ritz Kids programme, where they can explore the beachfront, gain a better understanding of the marine life through educating yet fun beach activities, or develop their inner artist with beach-inspired arts and crafts.
“We have been looking forward to the reopening of our beach resort under the management of The Ritz-Carlton and to giving guests truly memorable experiences,” said Frederic Savoye, President of Hospitality Business, Al Hamra Group. “We are thrilled to introduce the legendary Ritz-Carlton service, which combined with state-of-the-art facilities, elevated restaurants, and unique spa concepts, will offer the best in beachfront luxury to guests from all over the world.”
Resort guests can recharge at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, a seaside sanctuary offering holistic treatments in the comfort of dedicated treatment pavilions. This world class spa offers a select menu of local, ocean inspired treatments prepared with flowers and native spices. Two fitness centres are also available 24 hours for guests.
Fresh seafood and cuisine prepared with a local twist can be experienced while enjoying endless sea views from the resort’s signature Shore House restaurant, which showcases gastronomic excellence with fresh catches from the sea and local produce. Exotic sundowners are served every day at sunset on the bar lounge. Those who want a more private dinner experience can choose to dine on the beachfront, in a secluded beach cabana overlooking the crystal blue waters of Ras Al Khaimah or on the beachfront.
Additionally, guests wanting to explore The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert can do so easily with a daily shuttle bus travelling to and from the two resorts. Activities such as nature walks through the Al Wadi Nature Reserve, archery or wildlife entertainment with owl and falconry shows can be arranged for a day of desert exploration, truly offering something for everyone in Ras Al Khaimah, the resort executives said.
