Best For Families
With a lot of child-friendly options, DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island is easily the best for families. You get a huge range of children’s activities as well a wide variety of ways for adults to enjoy their holiday.
For the little ones, there are children’s activities, including a bouncy castle providing endless fun, while the Pirate Boat Aqua Zone lets everyone splash around. Children can visit the arcade zone, an extensive outdoor playground and a climbing wall for even more ways to burn off energy. Play a few games of table tennis, pool or even giant chess, and then relax with a stretching class. A fitness room lets you keep in shape while you indulge at the variety of restaurants during your stay. Take to the water with watersports, or visit the nearby Al Hamra Golf Course to play a few rounds. And if you’d like to take a moment for a quiet meal in the evening, the resort also offers babysitting services.
Best for Luxury
An effortlessly relaxing oasis, the Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah Al Hamra Beach delivers refined luxury on the shores of the Arabian Gulf. A collection of beautiful beach villas come complete with four-poster beds, private infinity pools and your very own cabanas – the Al Bahar tented beach pool villas even have direct access to the white sands.
Visit the Shore House restaurant, where you can enjoy a range of à la carte dishes, and then relax in the spa with its selection of signature treatments. A free shuttle takes you to The Ritz-Carlton Al Wadi Desert hotel, where you can enjoy activities such as archery and falconry shows.
Best for a Desert Escape
The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah Al Wadi Desert delivers high-end luxury in a gorgeous desert environment. Rolling sand dunes bring a sense of relaxation as you settle down for the evening in the middle of this glorious nature reserve. The villas each have their own private pool – feel like you’re in your very own oasis where you can watch the sun go down as Arabian oryx and desert gazelle wander past.
There are plenty of activities available at the resort, whether you wish to practice your desert archery, ride a camel across the dunes, bottle-feed the resident oryx and gazelles or spend the night stargazing with the astronomy experts.
Best All Inclusive Resort
