Things To Do

When you think “desert oasis”, you don’t immediately think “multiple things to do”. It may surprise you then to learn of all the amazing activities and experiences that surround Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert! The desert itself offers endless opportunities for discovery. Over 5000 years of Emirati history is housed here. From forts and abandoned villages, to markets, farms and camel-racing traditions, there’s so much to see and do! Some of the key sites and things to do while at this spectacular resort include Al Jazirah Al Hamra—the Persian Gulf’s oldest and most intact fishing village from the 14th Century, the Camel Races run in winter at Suwan Camel Race Track (starting in October) and Dhayah Fort, located north of Rams Town. These activities range from between 20-minutes and 1-hour away and are well worth the trip if you’re looking for an authentic UAE experience!

Incredible! I stayed at this property with my two daughters for 4 nights. It’s very easy to use any number of wonderful superlatives to describe this relaxing and energising oasis. My daughters rode horses, cycled and had very spoiling treatments at the spa. What made the stay such a breath of fresh air was the constant smiling staff who are excited to make your stay as best as can be. The food was delicious and no request was too much trouble.
