Offering a serene environment, The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert, is marked by its natural and pristine setting, and by the gorgeous private villas that make up our phenomenal accommodations. Ras Al Khaimah has long been home to Bedouins and desert explorers. The area is an idyllic sanctuary surrounded by sand that glows underneath the Arabian sun by day and under a blanket of stars in the evening. Here, you can interact with stunning landscapes while enjoying the comforts of a private villa, which includes a private pool. Our Ras Al Khaimah desert resort in the United Arab Emirates features a Ritz-Carlton Spa, 4 restaurants and 3 bars, along with 500 hectare of nature reserve to enjoy outdoor activities and adventure with family or friends. Whether you want to enjoy the daily owl interaction and falcon show overlooking the glowing sunset or enjoy other options to immerse in nature and reconnect with yourself, your choices are limitless.

Like mentioned before, the new common pool is being build. Get in touch with the hotel to see whether or not it is open yet. Both Al Wadi desert and Al Hamra Beach are under the same sub-management. You could inform to see if it is possible for you to go to the beach there. It is a 15 minute drive.

Hi, are the private pools big enough to do lengths in or are they just plunge pools? Thanks Hannah
You could get up to 5 strokes in the pool before needing to turn. It is bigger than a plunge pool.

This property has only villa private pools. They were constructing a public pool also but I don't think it Wouldve been completed as of yet. Kindly confirm with the hotel if the new public pool is operational.
