Surrounded by the desert and sea, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is an ideal destination for an unforgettable daycation in a stunning setting. Located just over an hour from its neighbouring city Dubai, this five-star resort is the perfect place to kick back and relax.
There are two gorgeous pools
The resort has both a family and adults pool, providing the best of both worlds for those who like to Privilee with or without the family. The adults-only pool doubles up as a trendy beach and pool lounge by Siddhartha, offering cabanas, beats from a resident DJ and a Mediterranean menu for a perfect chilled afternoon.
Please note, there is a minimum spend policy of AED 200 at the adults-only pool
The family pool, on the other hand, is huge with shallow and shaded areas and lots of sun-beds dotted around. We particularly love the temperature-controlled swim-up bar!
The pristine white beach is HUGE
Soak up the sunshine on the white sands of a 350m private beach, set against the Arabian Sea and with plenty of sun loungers that are spaced well apart, it's perfect to catch some rays in a peaceful environment.
Kids go crazy for the kids' activities
Children can escape to their own world at the kids club, featuring a nursery and an outside play area. Ideal for kids age 4–12, there are plenty of activities from slides and climbing frames to indoor art and craft fun.
You can squeeze a workout in!
If scenic views of the sea aren't motivating for a workout, the bright, airy and fantastic range of equipment will be! Enjoy complimentary towels, water and fruit alongside your workout - plus its super easy to access from the pool.
The Spa is stunning
Designed with an ‘under the sea’ theme, you will fall in love with the tranquil vibe here. The award-winning spa offers 12 large treatment rooms (Privilee Members get 20% off), as well as one VIP couples' suite, a floatation bed for females and a hydrobath. Male and female steam rooms are available, plus Waldorf Astoria's signature herbal sauna! We can’t get enough of Voya, a totally organic, sustainable seaweed product that is used in signature treatments.
Get active, outdoors!
Fancy a game or two? Split up your pool and beach day with a visit to the tennis courts. Balls and rackets are provided, plus they are floodlit if you are keen to escape the heat and play during sunset.

With 10 restaurants and bars, there is plenty to choose from and to suit whatever you are craving. We particularly love the US steakhouse Lexington Grill, Arabic fare at Marjan and the Japanese cuisine at UMI. Privilee members receive 20% discount on the total bill for up to 3 people, tuck in!
