RAS AL KHAIMAH, UAE ⎯ The iconic Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah reopens its doors revealing a stunning transformation. The newest chapter of the renowned luxury hotel has begun, as the resort welcomes guests to live unforgettable once again.

After an extensive refurbishment, the resort has unveiled 203 keys in total including 149 beautifully appointed guest rooms and 54 suites with breathtaking views. Also refurbished during the transformation were nine restaurants and lounges, the spa and wellness center, extensive outdoor space for private events and weddings, and the resort's golden masterpiece, the six-meter clock in the heart of the lobby. Reflecting the rich history of grand clocks at Waldorf Astoria properties around the world, it features a domed glass dial with a striking aquamarine center. Paying homage to its Arabic roots, the clock features rotating prayer rings for precise prayer times, and bears an inscription from ancient Bedouin songs.

One of the most notable changes to the resort is the new look of the guest rooms and suites. The spacious and well-appointed suites, designed with notes of greens and blues inspired by the waters of the Arabian Gulf, are complemented by Waldorf Astoria’s elevated personalized service – with each guest assigned a Personal Concierge who attends to every detail of their stay from pre-arrival to post-departure.  

An exciting stay also awaits the resort’s smallest guests with a junior check-in, special amenities and a dedicated children's club with a varied, fun-filled program. In addition, the resort’s unique concierge program, Little Hotelier, allows children to step into the world of hospitality for a day and learn new skills while creating beautiful memories during their stay.

This includes the signature Japanese restaurant UMI, known for its authentic sushi, entertaining Teppanyaki demonstrations and the UAE’s largest sake collection as well as the American-style steak house Lexington Grill & Bar, popular for its dry aged, tender steak and a wide selection of the best wines and creative cocktails.
