The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah closed its doors for six months for renovations. Now it is celebrating its reopening. The tasteful revitalisation of the luxury retreat is sure to delight guests. The resort’s dining venues, lounges and bars have undergone a makeover. Even the resort’s golden masterpiece, the legendary six-metre high Waldorf Astoria clock in the heart of the lobby, has been redesigned.
Part of the prestigious brand Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Waldorf Astoria Ras al Khaimah is part of an exclusive collection of properties known for offering exquisite Waldorf Service, truly inspirational environments, and unforgettable experiences. Inspired by New York’s legendary Waldorf Astoria, each hotel in the fast-growing brand has its own distinct character, timeless architecture, and unique history.
After an extensive refurbishment, the resort has unveiled 203 keys in total including 149 beautifully appointed guest rooms and 54 suites with breathtaking views. Also refurbished during the transformation were nine restaurants and lounges, the spa and wellness center, extensive outdoor space for private events and weddings, and the resort’s golden masterpiece, the six-meter clock in the heart of the lobby. Reflecting the rich history of grand clocks at Waldorf Astoria properties around the world, it features a domed glass dial with a striking aquamarine center. Paying homage to its Arabic roots, the clock features rotating prayer rings for precise prayer times, and bears an inscription from ancient Bedouin songs.
One of the most notable changes to the resort is the new look of the guest rooms and suites. The spacious and well-appointed suites, designed with notes of greens and blues inspired by the waters of the Arabian Gulf, are complemented by Waldorf Astoria’s elevated personalized service – with each guest assigned a Personal Concierge who attends to every detail of their stay from pre-arrival to post-departure.
With plenty of room to spread out and relax and activities for children, it’s the perfect family-friendly destination; if traveling for a peaceful break, you can also enjoy plenty of wellness activities with sunny weather, pristine beaches, and adventure sports. Treat yourself with all the comforts of home while being treated to Waldorf Astoria’s signature luxury.
