Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah 

Beachside opulence

An Arabic-influenced resort right on the waterfront with copious facilities.

The Waldorf Astoria is striking and gives you an undeniable sense of place. From the moment you set eyes on the palace-esque exteriors, it packs a serious visual punch; and this opulent design continues throughout the interior thanks to the pearl details, grand archways and Arabian artwork. The setting is also a highlight: it backs a private golden-sand beach that’s lapped by the Arabian Sea and it’s within easy reach of a cluster of restaurants, a Peter Harradine-designed 18-hole golf course – Al Hamra Golf Club – and a shopping mall. Back at the resort, there’s the Waldorf Astoria Spa, a calm sanctuary with floatation beds, hydro baths, steam rooms and a glorious herbal sauna.

Dining at the Waldorf Astoria is a feast for the senses and brings tastes from around the world to Ras Al Kaimah. Buffet breakfast and dinner are served at Qasr Al Bahar, the resort’s main restaurant where the focus is on international dishes. We love the dark and sophisticated vibes at Lexington Grill & Bar, an American eatery with a menu that’s packed with fresh seafood, meat and plant-based options. Other dinner options include the Med-inspired Azure Restaurant and Japanese signature dining at Umi.

Qasr Al Bahar
The Waldorf Astoria’s main buffet restaurant where you can enjoy international dishes for breakfast and dinner.

For the flavours of Japan and dishes created on the Teppanyaki grill, treat yourself to a night at sleek and sophisticated Umi.

Azure Restaurant
A casual venue where Mediterranean dishes are served up in the cool interior or in the sun-kissed landscaped gardens.

Lexington Grill & Bar
The American-inspired restaurant is one the must-try venues where grilled seafood, red meat and plant-based alternatives are grilled to perfection.

Peacock Alley
At other times of the day, you can enjoy coffee, speciality teas and signature cocktails.

Azure Pool & Beach Bar
For poolside and beachfront drinks and light Mediterranean fare throughout the day.

Camelia Lounge
A spot for some refreshing tea - they have approximately 40 loose leaf varieties to suite every taste. It's also the setting for the Waldorf Astoria's famed high tea.

Sunset Beach Club & Lounge
Enjoy the chilled vibes, light bites and the extensive beverage menu, particularly popular at sunset.

At the Lexington Bar & Grill, there’s also a wine cellar with 350 labels if you fancy pairing the perfect red to your cooked-to-order beef or the ideal white to complement your fish dish.

Travel with a Purpose is the Hilton's Group policy for social and environmental initiatives including reducing the consumption of natural resources and sourcing products responsibly and sustainably.

The Azure family pool features a water playground and the Pearl Kids' Club keeps 4 to 12 year olds busy. We love the Little Hotelier programme where children don a uniform and help out at the front desk and learn from the hotel chefs.

There’s a fantastic golf course on the doorstep - the award-winning Al Hamra Golf Club. You can have a game in the evening as the course uses zero-pollution floodlights to illuminate nine holes.
