Have you ever been to Ras Al Khaimah, a part of United Arab Emirates? This was my first visit and there is so much I want to share with you about this wonderful destination. So much so that I will be dedicating separate posts to the hotels I stayed in and places I visited. So let’s begin with the first (and fabulous) stop on my journey – Ritz-Carlton Al Hamra Beach luxury resort.
After an overnight flight to Dubai with Royal Brunei airlines and a 1-hour drive to Ras Al Khaimah, I checked in into my breathtaking Ritz-Carlton Al Hamra beach villa just as the sun was rising. I had to resist the urge to start swimming in the pool, having breakfast, photographing and filming this stunning place straight away as I was in a desperate need of a nap (I’m that annoying person that never manages to sleep on the plane).
A few hours later, I woke up in an insanely comfortable bed with a ‘pinch me’ kind of view in front of me. I was, suddenly, not in grey and cold London, but in a sunny RAK, with a private pool and access to the beach in front of me. Was I awake or was it still a dream?
Ritz-Carlton Al Hamra is the second luxury resort for The Ritz-Carlton brand in Ras Al Khaimah. Located on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, it’s the perfect getaway for those seeking a relaxing beach holiday. The resort consists of 32 luxurious villas, each with a private pool and beach access.
There is a first time for everything and after seeing a numerous amount of floating pool breakfasts all throughout my Instagram feed, I was finally able to experience this phenomenon that, quite honestly, set a new level of luxe to my previous breakfast standards. I highly recommend you try it when you get a chance.
Talking of traditional, non-floating meals, Ritz-Carlton Al Hamra offers you a wonderful selection of fresh seafood and cuisine with a local twist in their Shore House restaurant located by the main pool and overlooking the beach and the Arabian Gulf.
Guests of Ritz-Carlton Al Hamra can also enjoy a variety of Spa treatments, sunset or sunrise yoga, paddle boarding or, even, a fishing trip on the coast of Ras Al Khaimah. Whichever you choose, you are guaranteed a good time in this beautiful destination.
Thank you Ras Al Khaimah tourism board and Ritz-Carlton for having me!
