Banyan Tree Ras Al Khaimah Beach sits just 20 minutes from Banyan Tree Al Wadi, its sister desert resort, and one hour from Dubai International Airport. The dramatic check in at the hotel sees guests sailing on a private boat from the main shoreline to the 32 tented- pool villa resort, situated on a private sandy peninsula surrounded by the ocean.
Each of the 170sqm villas emulates the nomadic tents of the Bedouin tribe with arched tented roofs and wooden support poles. This contrasts comfortably with the contemporary neutral interiors and floor-to-ceiling windows that flood each villa with light. A personal plunge pool accompanies every villa along with a decking area and beach cabana with a day bed for the ultimate in relaxation and for basking in the sunshine.
Guests can choose to embark on a short romantic cruise and spend the late afternoon relaxing in a traditional ABRA boat that sails around the bay. A bottle of bubbly and strawberries and cream are just two of the many culinary indulgences on offer during this romantic sunset cruise. Guests also have access to a dedicated Banyan Tree Spa with six treatment pavilions, a beach restaurant, Sands, featuring International and Mexican cuisine and an expansive infinity-edged swimming pool and sundeck to soak up the chic desert ambience. A water sports centre with various activities is also on offer for those seeking marina adventures.
