We drove from Dubai to neighbouring Ras Al Khaimah which took us around an hour or so followed by a 5 minute ferry ride to the hotel reception. Banyan Tree Ras Al Khaimah Beach resort rests amidst 100 hectares of private nature reserve, home to indigenous plant and wildlife, nestled along the tranquil blue of the Arabian Gulf.
Each of the meticulously designed Beachfront Pool Villas emulates the nomadic tents of Bedouin tribes, creating a feeling of pure romance and relaxation.
The accommodation is extremely spacious with extra large four poster bed, a seating area and TV, a generous bathroom with shower and Banyan Tree products, a deep sunken outdoor bath, an outdoor shower too, free bottled water, a coffee machine, fruit bowl and the usual minibar.
Each Bedouin villa boasts its own private pool with your very own day-bed to stretch out on, or simply bask on sun lounges in your own beach cabana while enjoying a view of the vast desertscape of Ras Al Khaimah.
What we never miss in a Banyan tree property is their traditional massages which is just fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the couple’s treatment. Bliss!
The resort has limited dining options – just 1 restaurant and 1 bar. Buffet breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the water offered a decent choice of food, including tropical fresh fruit salad, bircher muesli, dairy, soy milk or yoghurt, savoury dishes, pastries, honey and preserves.
The resort is a nice gateway with your partner whereby you will enjoy great privacy and luxury!
