The Ritz-Carlton, Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert

The Ritz-Carlton, Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert

Formerly a Banyan tree hotel before being adopted by the Ritz Carlton in 2017, the resort is among the latter’s best escapes in the Middle East. Tented villas and arabesque interiors add to the property’s most prominent aspect: that the property rests in the sanctuary of a 100 hectare and protected nature reserve. You’ll encounter Oryx’s over breakfast, gazelles during a stroll and there are plenty of outdoor activities to make you forget you’re only an hour away from Dubai. Its world-class reputation is only complimented with derivatives including the region’s only Rainforest circuit and a range of wellness treatments to drive home its penchant for tranquillity.
