Al Wadi Desert, Ras Al Khaimah is offering the one night experience with private helicopter arrival, dinner, breakfast and spa ritual
Al Wadi Desert, Ras Al Khaimah, is offering a Valentine’s Day ‘Desert Love’ package for AED53,888 ($14,671) per night with a private helicopter arrival and bottle of bubbly.
For those of us with slightly lower budgets, the hotel is offering the same package for AED33,888 ($9,226) with private limousine transfers.
Both packages include a romantic dinner served by a private chef on the rooftop of Safran Tower overlooking the desert landscape. It also includes an overnight stay in a luxury Sahari Tented Pool Villa, a Rainforest hydrotherapy circuit where guests experience a 14-step journey from cleansing showers to ice-scrubs at Al Wadi Spa and finally breakfast the next day set-up on a remote desert platform by your private butler.
Don’t have over AED30,000 ($8,167) to spend on a night? Do not despair. The resort is also offering a (cheap in comparison) package called ‘Treat Your Valentine” for AED4,000 ($1,089) per night that includes a one night stay in Al Rimal Villa, a romantic destination dinner for two in the desert and buffet breakfast at Al Waha.
Al Wadi Desert, Ras Al Khaimah, previously known as Banyan Tree Al Wadi, became a Ritz-Carlton Partner Hotel in late 2016.
