Located in tranquil and eco-rich Wadi Khadeja in Ras Al Khiaimah, this hotel rests amidst 500 hectares of private nature reserve, home to indigenous plants and wildlife. Set against the waters of the Arabian Gulf and the magnificent Al Hajjar Mountains, this oasis of indulgence is the first luxury desert and beach resort in the Emirates to offer all-pool villas, complete with Asian-inspired hydrotherapy spa facilities.

The elegant fortress-like facade of the resort holds true to traditional Arabic architecture, blending harmoniously with rolling desert dunes. Consisting of 101 pool-villas, the Al Rimal Pool Villa emulate the nomadic tent style of Bedouin tribes. Other facilities include 'The Rainforest' hydrotherapy spa circuit with hammam and vitality pool, 10 treatment rooms, activity centre, kids club, a world-class falconry mews, horse and camel stables.

The signature Thai restaurant, Safran, offers authentic Thai cuisine, overlooking the nature reserve's watering hole where wildlife gather during sunset while Al Waha, meaning Oasis in Arabic, serves popular international fare and local Arabic specialities. Using Arabesque interior design, diners can choose to dine indoors where floor-to-ceiling windows allows for viewing the sand dunes, or on the outdoor terrace where you can try the Arabic grill and spit roast.

Or for something special, the resort offers a unique experience of a night of desert dining under the vast Arabian sky. In true Bedouin-style, sit across a brilliant campfire while partaking in traditional dishes for a truly memorable dinner.
