Ras Al Khaimah Will Soon Be Home To A Stunning New Over-The-Water Resort

Ras Al Khaimah is no short of gorgeous stay options, but this time a one-of-its-kind property is coming to the emirate. Slated to open in 2020, Anantara’s stunning new eco-resort will be docked on the water. The resort is inspired by over the water resorts in Maldives. And that also means Ras Al Khaimah will soon be perfect for honeymoons.

What’s In It?

Anantara’s Mina Al Arab boasts 300 guest rooms, and suites. However, the highlight of the property are the Maldivian-style overwater villas. Situated in a secluded corner in RAK, the resort overlooks mangrove-lined eco reserve. Wake up to the call of the waves and dive directly into the ocean below.

Guests can take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool or at the many mini pools in the rooms. Fitness freaks don’t have to worry about breaking their routine as the in-house health club is complete with gym, yoga, aerobics, squash and tennis courts.

Adventure enthusiasts can explore the underwater world, or climb mountains and go zip-lining at Jebel Jais. The resort also features an eco-learning centre for nature lovers to spend an evening watching birds and staring at the open sky.

If you wish to hang up your boots and unwind, head to their luxury Spa. The spa boasts hi-end interiors and also has a hammam room that’s perfect for a relaxing soak or massage.

As for the food options, the resort offers a speciality Asian restaurant, a sea-food restaurant as well as a beach and pool bar. You can dine overwater at the resort’s signature Thai restaurant.

That’s not all! Anantara also has plans to open a resort in Sharjah. The project will open doors in 2021 and will be complete with 233 rooms, suites, and other hi-end amenities.

What Else?

Meanwhile, Sharjah is getting its very own camping site and going by the pictures, this one looks like fun! The Al Badayer Oasis can easily double up for a castle in the middle of the dessert. Equipped with 21 rooms and ten luxurious tents, this one is for those who enjoy luxury even while camping.

The interiors scream all things Arabic and the resort also houses a restaurant that serves traditional Arabic cuisine alongside street-side delicacies. As for the amenities, guests can expect all things fancy- from a swimming pool to a health club and a business centre.
