About Al Wadi Desert
Amid stretches of desert sand in tranquil Wadi Khadeja, an oasis of peace awaits at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert Hotel. A sanctuary surrounded by the evergreen ghaf tree. Experience magical Arabian nights and the romance of living like nomads, complete with Asian-inspired hydrotherapy spa facilities, a dedicated nature reserve, a private beach club and an 18-hole championship golf course.
The activities on offer are outstanding with the world-renowned spa or a round of golf at the Al Hamra course to a class in falconry, horseback-riding, camel safaris and bike trails. An Arabian wildlife experience awaits within the nature reserve, home to local desert fauna such as Arabian gazelles, camels and oryxes, offering you a unique opportunity to interact with and observe these gentle creatures up close.
The Beach Club offers a selection of recreational activities like snorkelling, water-skiing, wake-boarding and sailing in the shimmering turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. Schooner-chartering, fishing and scuba-diving trips can also be organised. If you prefer to lounge by the private beach may do so in comfort at the Beach Club's bar.
