The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach


Elegant and stylish, this exclusive beachfront resort offers blissful seclusion.

This beach retreat is designed to create a feeling of a desert island escape. Bedouin-style tent villas and low-rise buildings are spread over soft sands and every villa has its own private pool. There’s a shared infinity pool on the beachfront and the sea is just steps away from your Tented Beach Pool Villa. If you’re after a change of scene and want to be immersed in the peaceful tranquillity of the desert, hop on the complimentary 20-minute shuttle ride to the hotel’s sister property, The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert, where you’ll have full use of the facilities.

For casual dining, head to the Shore House restaurant. Overlooking the infinity pool, the relaxed environment is complemented by a healthy menu of international cuisine. Or for an especially memorable dining experience, request a private set up on the beach for dinner on the sands.

Each of the canopied Tented Beach Pool Villas has been designed to present the perfect setting in which you can sit back and enjoy the beauty of the stars. In the warm heat of the day, a late afternoon swim in your private plunge pool that backs on to the golden sands is the best way to cool off. Choose between Al Bahar Tented Beach Pool Villas, which have direct beach access, or Al Naseem Tented Beach Pool Villas for an added sense of seclusion.
