The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah - Three Nights
From when you check in to when you leave, the experience is like no other on this Six Star secluded luxury desert resort.
We wanted to experience a desert resort, and The Ritz Carlton exceeded all our expectations.
The villa was stunning, with a view of the desert for sunsets from the pool. You could not be disappointed with the size, and sometimes I thought my husband had gone missing! Or maybe it was ‘selective hearing’!
We dined in The Farmhouse the first night, and the food and service were fabulous.
The next day we headed off to breakfast on our bicycles and then cycled around the resort to visit the stables and say hi to the beautiful horses, camels, falcons and owls!
Hence we booked a morning desert horse ride, which I couldn’t recommend highly enough. However, you are riding Arabian racehorses, so best ensure you are an experienced rider. The view from the top was sensational!
We also experienced The Rainforest in the spa, and this was a beautiful 1 hour of relaxation at our own pace, a series of showers & saunas to spend time in the Vitality Pool then!
We received a pleasant surprise for my 40th Birthday. The lovely host, Aquino, organised to pick us up in a buggy and take us for photos around the resort, including the top of the tower and presented me with a birthday cake and wine to celebrate. It was so beautiful!! We were then dropped off at our room to enjoy the sunset.
At the same time, Aquino edited our photos and created an incredible video of all the moments he captured
My hubby and I for my Birthday. It was an exceptional treat. We are so grateful to have this memento of our trip!
This is the place for anyone wanting to experience the desert in luxurious style! I can not recommend it highly enough.
