Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah brings a journey of refinement and elegance as you immerse yourself in the unparalleled experience of timeless luxury. Experience the beginning of a new era as this prestigious luxury resort invites guests to create unforgettable memories once again.

After an extensive refurbishment, this iconic resort has unveiled 203 keys in total, including 149 beautifully appointed guest rooms and 54 suites with breathtaking views. Also refurbished during the stunning transformation are nine restaurants and lounges, extensive outdoor space for private events and weddings, and the resort’s golden masterpiece, the legendary six-metre Waldorf Astoria clock in the heart of the lobby. This stunning clock showcases a pearlised domed glass dial with a captivating aquamarine centre, complemented by gold-plated Whitehurst 7 day mechanical movement. Paying homage to its Arabic roots, it features rotating prayer rings for precise prayer times. Crafted by Smith of Derby over eight months with three tones of metal, steel, and champagne gold, it bears an inscription from ancient Bedouin songs for added historical significance.

One of the most notable changes to the footprint of the resort is the new look of the guest rooms and suites. The design of the spacious and well-appointed suites, with notes of greens and blues inspired by the waters of the Arabian Gulf, meet the needs of today’s luxury travellers, with unparalleled experiences and elevated personalised service.
