The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is lauded for its cleanliness, with guests often noting the hotel's well-maintained state. Its array of amenities, including opulent rooms with stunning views, a highly-regarded pool and beach area, and an array of dining choices, also receive high praise. While the luxurious atmosphere and exemplary service are consistently celebrated, some guests feel the hotel does not provide good value, pointing to the high costs and limited meal credits as drawbacks. However, its prime location with easy access to shopping and beautiful beachfront vistas keeps travelers returning.

The hotel management and staff really made the stay wonderful. I came here for a wedding and it was magnificent. It rained, but the wedding stayed on course. Unfortunately, I could not enjoy the beach, but the buffet, the in-room dining, and the general ambiance were great! The concierge also helped me rebook my flight, which made the inconvenience of not having a local phone number non-existent.

One of the most beautiful hotels in the UAE; Art Deco style a la New York original, with a lovely Peacock Alley seating area (albeit eerily very quiet - covid?) and the largest Waldorf clock from any of the hotels. One of the evenings we had the pleasure of listening to a live talented pianist in the brasserie; she kindly played Frozen for our daughters.

The staff are amazing throughout; especially helpful were Ganesh, Landry and Zain, but to be honest they all were amazing and I just couldn’t remember all those names. This goes for staff at front desk, at breakfast, by the pool/beach and the others.

The beach is lovely as is the pool with always enough space to find seating. Tip: go early if you want a cabana. Second tip: at 4pm-ish they bring out ice lollies to those by the pool.

The room (family) is spacious - as Hilton Gold we were upgraded to family delux which has more than enough space for our third child in a cot bed.

The hotel has done a good job of balancing service with Covid restrictions; so breakfast is ordered a la carte but unlimited. Obviously with the guests all ordering at once it does take a little longer, but no longer than if you were queuing up yourself from station to station. Covid pack on arrival including sanitiser and masks, and restrictions adhered to throughout. On busy days go before 8.30am if you want to avoid queuing prior to entry.

Kids club was fun enough for our kids (6 and 8) to leave behind for about 2 hours. Small but good selection of toys/activities.

Restaurants: Lexington has amazing steaks; Marjan has beautiful setting if you go around sunset, exquisite decor and nice Arabic/Lebanese fare; Azure is very average/not great but generous portions. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try the Japanese restaurant, Umi. Note only Azure is open for lunch.

The only slight annoyance was that the half board option (usually obtained through Dnata/travel agents) offers a very limited menu range in Lexington and tiny 110g steaks. Otherwise you get a credit of about AED 130 pp, which is about half the cost of a regular sized steak. However if you go for the 110g steak you also get a starter (not bad) and a dessert (chosen for you and not great). Maybe next time it might be worth doing the credit option and/or Entertainer also available at Lexington (and I think Umi too). One nice touch is that half board also gets you a large bottle of water free at dinner instead of charging you an ridiculous amount for water that you otherwise get free throughout the hotel.

This is the first hotel to visit after COVID-19 started. What I can say is great work to hotel staff. Starting from the hotel gate with check guests temperature in every entry to the hotel. Check-in was amazing and super fast our bags arrived before us to the rooms. Staff was super friendly and kind. Housekeeping around the room they always check if you need anything I faced issue with WC in the room and they fixed it immediately. Even if you will go around the hotel or to the pool you will find hotel staff everywhere to help and guide you. The beds was comfortable with good size. Rooms were cleaned and sensitized before you enter. Breakfast was good due to COVID-19 it served to the table and you choose from the menu No buffet. I love the hotel I will visit it in winter to enjoy the beach more. One point need to be improved is the wifi keeps disconnecting this is the only issue that I faced.

Spa: my treatment wasn’t pleasant in the sense they completed before 60 mins of the massage, she was on her phone when I went to the shower and came out, shower water was cold, room was not dim lit so offered free 30 min treatment which was much better. The lady in first treatment was very lazy.
Chirag treatment fine.

Room:
No housekeeping on Tuesday and had to request towels etc. Only turn down service so they didn’t replace bedsheets/ clean up etc.
On Wednesday our room was left open!!! By housekeeping we assume. The manager said Cctv would be checked to make sure no one entered our room but seriously how ridiculous for a 5 star hotel. Everyday seen one cleaner on our floor just on his phone every time we’ve walked past him, and once nearly bathing into me as so unaware as he’s on his phone.

Azure on the beach: service is atrocious and don’t even greet you till you greet them.
Azure restaurant in comparison is truly 5 star.
No consistency between the two so choose restaurant as it’s much better. Beach service was good.

Were confirmed before we arrived what amenities were available for the kids and told they’d provide them but we didn’t get any till we requested again and arrived on our second to last night.

At most 5 star places after arriving at the hotel they ask you to take a seat and relax while they sort out the check in, not here: you have to stand for 10 mins while they faff around. Not to say the reception staff were unpleasant but as grand as the lobby is, the check in wasn’t 5 star.
While our room wasn’t ready they didn’t even offer us to freshen up or take a tour, just said we’ll call when your room is ready and left us to it.

Kids club is great as are the staff there, the playground is brilliant too.

The beach is lovely and a very large space.

Buffet: if you have kids and you go during low season, they don’t tell you but there are no kids buffet options because apparently they only have this during high season. So you have to order and they are happy to accommodate but the check in or restaurant staff could’ve informed us to set our expectations. Otherwise food for adults is amazing. Only downside in morning is they don’t replace much if you go after 10am even though breakfast is on till 11am which in my opinion for a 5 star isn’t very good.

We have stayed here twice recently; once in May 2020 and once in June 2020, both times in a family deluxe room with sea view. Facilities and service are all befitting of a 5 star hotel. It is clean and modern with large comfortable family rooms, great service and excellent cleaning standards (especially during COVID-19). The hotel has large pools (one family, one adults only) and a huge beach with lots of water sports. Rooms are sealed once sanitized and guests must wear masks and social distance at all times. There are cleaning staff everywhere in the hotel as well as temperature checks and hand sanitizer in abundance. Do not hesitate to book this hotel for an unforgettable stay.

The first time I heard of the Waldorf Astoria was in one of my favourite movies “Coming to America” . Granted I was still a kid but I remember how elegant and regal the Waldorf looked. Although that Waldorf was in New York and I still have it on my list of hotels to visit, we have one right here in the UAE. This Waldorf is located in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaima an hour’s drive from Dubai. The Hotel boasts beach front property on the gorgeous lazuline Arabian Sea.

Upon entering we were greeted warmly by Valet and Concierge who assisted us quite promptly with our bags and car. The reception area opens to a huge luxurious exquisitely decorated lobby area.

Check in was completed in under ten minutes and we had someone accompany us to our room to explain the various features. We had booked the Classic King Room which had a stellar view of the Hotel’s private beach. The room was not only picture perfect but spacious with immaculate attention paid to minor detail like the patterned ceilings and branding.

The room is fitted with a huge dressing room with plenty closet space with the usual hotel trimmings, the fluffiest bathrobes known to man and softest slippers. The bathroom’s rain shower was one of my favourite features. One could literally shower for an hour with such perfect water pressure.

The room has a fully functional desk area and quasi living area with a stocked out mini fridge,couch where you can relax as you gaze out the window to perfect views of the sunset.

The room was so comfortable, we prolonged leaving it to explore the rest of the property.

The hotel has a huge general pool area with a pool bar. And an adult pool closer to the beach. There are wooden gazebos littered around the gardens for those wanting to treat themselves to the many spa treatments available. A gym and tennis court are available if working out n holiday is your thing. It definitely isn't mine :)

The beach is a stones throw away from the gardens and plenty beach chairs mean you can lounge around all day ordering drinks and food to your hearts content while soaking in some sun, sea and sand.

The service was impeccable, every single staff member was extremely helpful and efficient at getting us what we needed to make our stay comfortable.

Various dining experiences from Japanese, a Steak House and an Arabic restaurants to cater to your cravings.

I loved breakfast at Qasr Al Bahr. A buffet breakfast filled with delicious variety of dishes to let you start of your day with a good big breakfast.

Although on the higher price range, this place is worth every single penny. One of my happy places in the UAE. We will definitely return. Keep up the excellent work everyone.

We have stayed at the Waldorf Astoria in Ras al Khaimah several times and have always thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The rooms are beautifully appointed and whenever possible the staff try to accommodate our requests for early and late check-ins as well as room types.

The main pool area is great for families and they also have a large adults only pool, whilst the beach is lovely - wide, white sand and a clean sea.

The F&B outlets are great, we particularly like the Lexington Grill and Azure but all are very good and the breakfast is excellent - during Covid they are doing a super job of serving an extensive selection whilst keeping everyone safe.

We have always been warmly welcomed back by the staff and I must make a special mention to Olga and Angelina who both went above and beyond their normal duties to accommodate us at short notice and to really look after my family on our most recent visit.

We have lived in the region for over 12 years and have travelled extensively for work and leisure and I would put the Waldorf right in the top handful of outstanding hotels to stay in the UAE, which is high praise as we are certainly spoilt for choice!

We highly recommend staying at the Waldorf as a family or as a couple as they serve both needs extremely well. Enjoy!

My husband and myself were nervous about staying at such a big hotel during the pandemic but we were delighted by the safety and precautionary measures at the hotel. Firstly the occupancy was restricted at 50%. When we got to our room the door had a "Sanitized" seal on it. We were also given a sanitization kit with masks, wipes and a bottle of sanitizer. It was good to see the hotel staff following the safety protocols strictly.

The property is extremely well maintained. We enjoyed the uninterrupted view of the ocean from our junior suite.

Food was delicious. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the breakfast buffet had been converted to an A la carte system to avoid crowding at food stations. We have a jain and vegan diet (I know!) but had no trouble finding delicious food that met our dietary requirements. Gagandeep took really good care of us foodwise throughout our stay. We loved dining at Umi and ended up going there twice for their delicious vegan ramen!

On the whole, a very pleasant and comfortable stay and would love to be back here again. We were lucky to visit at a time when the hotel was not busy but I am curious to see how things are during peak tourist season.

We just returned from our 3 night stay at Waldorf Astoria RAK and it was an excellent staycation!! Just like everyone currently, we were also apprehensive about going away but Waldorf RAK is equipped really well with sanitisers provided everywhere, you can see staff cleaning and sanitising all surfaces.
We went full board and had all 3 meals at the hotel. Breakfast was a-la-carte which is an excellent idea as it minimises food wastage too.
Lunch was at Azure, Italian restaurant where we had a set menu to choose from. Though the food was delicious, it was the service we got there from Gabriel, Cheli and Vivek that made our visits extra special! Thanks guys for going above and beyond each time for us.
We enjoyed dinner at Azure and Marjan, Middle Eastern restaurant.
The pool was great as well, though it was busy with families, we felt safe with social distancing followed.
We had an issue with the room but housekeeping team handled it well for us. Service we got at each step was excellent, housekeeping staff such as Daniel, breakfast team- Jishnu, Raju, all made our stay special.
All in all, it was a great stay and we are already planning our return!

I really like how the hotel is having the right precautions to make us feel safe and happy from the car park until reaching the room. Special thank to Ahmed in the adults pool for the great service. I also appreciate all the other workers for being helpful and I’m noticing how they keep sanitizing every few minutes which make us feel comfortable.
