The Al Wadi Desert’s Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah is designed specifically for luxury getaways. A collection of pool villas designed in the Bedouin style is found nestled among 500 hectares of rust-red dunes in a private reserve, home to Arabian oryx and desert gazelles. All kinds of activities, from camel rides and archery lessons to stargazing and falconry displays, are available if you can pull yourself away from the cosiness of your villa. In the night, dine on the dunes or even in a classic watchtower while having your own butler and chef serve you.

Why We Love It

The Ritz-Carlton, which is home to the opulent Al Wadi Spa and its Rainforest Hydrotherapy Center, understands how to pamper guests. Jump between several pools, steam rooms, and showers with variable temperatures—the ideal escape from the desert’s heat.

Room Types

Don’t pass up the chance to sleep by the desert, especially if you’ve already stayed by the ocean. These villas, which were modelled after traditional Bedouin tents, provide breathtaking views of the burnt orange sandy desert from your own private terrace. Additionally, you’ll have a private pool, a sizable lounge area, and a bathroom with floor-to-ceiling windows so you can fully enjoy the view. Avail of special perks when you book a stay at the Al Sarab Tented Villa, such as butler service, a fire pit, a complimentary honour bar, and sunset refreshments. This radically redefines what luxury is.
