“One of the Finest!”
Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

We visited the hotel for Christmas lunch and were delighted with the whole experience. The location is fantastic, the interior design and finishes are superb, the food and presentation are Amazing and the staff are all extremely helpful and a credit to the hotel. Remember this is the only 7 star hotel in the world with an 18 hole links golf course directly attached and it is truly incredible. We are looking forward to returning for our New Year celebrations, whilst we do not drink alcohol we will still enjoy the celebrations and the unique friendly atmosphere at the Waldorf Astoria in Ras Al Khaimah. We also look forward to booking a weekend break here in 2014 and of course we will update you on this experience as well.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

Recently we spent one night at Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah. It was an amazing stay. The the entrance, the lobby, the rooms and the outdoor facilities are all great. The entrance is the tallest in UAE (according to the staff) and is really grand. The lobby is nicely decorated and have a large staff to take care of the guests. We had a standard room with balcony and a large bathroom. They have a large casual pool with cabanas, another area with separate cabanas and an infinity pool with even more cabanas. The beach is wide and has plenty of sun bathing chairs. In addition to the great facilities they also have top notch service. In summary, one of the best hotels in UAE.

The hotel had excellent service and view of the golf course/sea. I had a great experience and will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family. The rooms are very spacious and has completely new furnishings given it recently opened.

Stayed at the Waldorf for a week from 7th November and had a great time. We arrived about 9am and as our room was not yet ready were invited to have breakfast on the terrace. Well having left cold and wet England the night before, sitting outside in the warm sunshine with beautiful views of the beach and sea and having a varied range of food and drinks to choose from and welcomed by Vishva one of the breakfast team (who was excellent and always remembered the Cranberry juice), was a fantastic start to our stay.
We were allocated our own personal concierge who told us that the hotel had only opened in August but other than one of the restaurants still to open everything was up and running, including an excellent level of friendly service from all of the staff.
A special mention and thanks to Tudor our concierge who was always helpful, showed us around the whole hotel and had lots of suggestions, totally professional with a friendly attitude, absolutely nothing was too much trouble.
One of the other front office team worth a mention is Shiny, such a bubbly and genuine character and she is so interesting to talk to and was always helpful.
We dined at Qasr Al Bahar buffet for breakfast and dinner always outside on the terrace and the food is absolutely excellent, with a vast range of international tastes all catered for as well as cook to order options. The home made chocolates and puddings need a lot of exercise to keep the weight off as they are all so tempting. ;-)
We also had coffee in the Camelia Tea Bar served by the efficient and friendly Deni who produced an excellent cappuccino and I suggest that he be asked to train the team in Azure the pool restaurant as the cappuccino here was weak and milky.
The rooms are well fitted with a large dressing room and wardrobe and massive bathroom. There is a shopping mall within 15 minutes walk and the hotel provides a free shuttle bus to the main mall in RAK, although taxis are not expensive.
The main pool is gorgeous very large and warm, plus there is a lane swimming pool which is pretty chilly. The sea is clear and clean as is the beach and there are lots of sun beds with umbrellas. Also they have water sports options, we tried the jet ski and had a ball.
All in all a great week to just relax and soak up the sun.

Room Tip: Recommend both 327 for front facing and 714 for beach facing with lovely sunsets.

Huge property, great service, modern rooms, high quality dining. Went there on business and was very pleasantly surprised. Some serious investment went into this property and I hope they manage to maintain it at the level I saw. Even compared to Dubai resorts this is a top notch hotel.

Visited on an Emirates Skywards deal - hotel interiors a beautiful and sumptuous, rooms luxurious and very comfortable. Pool complex was large and relaxing - so much so we didn't use the beach. pity about the design of the hotel itself - poor standard of tacky phoney stick on arabic design - but stay was great and next visit has to include a game of night golf just across the road on a very nice looking course.
