We can get a little absorbed by our daily routines and responsibilities that we don’t take the time to make any special plans outside our usual outings. My birthday last month was the perfect excuse for a short getaway with my hubby, and The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah turned out to be spellbinding. The weather in RAK is cooler and the air is cleaner, and the resort itself was picturesque.
The Waldorf Astoria is a worldwide chain, with signature design elements found in all their branches. You’ll notice unique differences that reflect the culture and character of each location. This particular resort has a peacock theme, as well as coral and sand undertones which mirror the most beautiful aspect of the UAE: it’s beaches.
The rooms are bright, airy and incredibly spacious with a walk-in-closet (yes, seriously.) and an incredible view. We had a lovely in-room treatment called the Bath Master Experience which was a relaxing bubble bath accompanied by chocolates and pretty rose petals.
To sum it all up: we enjoyed delicious food, topnotch customer service and an unforgettable escape from the city. Browse the gallery below for more photos.
