Discover - The Ritz-Carlton Al Wadi Desert

Located in tranquil and ecologically rich Wadi Khadeja, Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates, the resort rests amidst 100 hectares of private nature reserve, home to indigenous plants and wildlife. Set against the waters of the Arabian Gulf and the magnificent Al Hajar Mountains, this oasis of indulgence offers the ultimate adventure for Muslim travellers, from camel riding to deep sea fishing and desert safaris.


The halal friendly resort is a 20 minute drive from the vibrant Ras Al Khaimah city centre and 45 minute drive from Dubai International Airport. It is the first desert resort in the United Arab Emirates to offer an all-pool villa concept, complete with Asian-inspired hydrotherapy spa facilities, a dedicated nature reserve, a private beach club and an 18-hole championship golf course. A breakfast buffet is served daily. For a truly wonderful stay in an idyllic setting, stay at this resort.


Luxury in the UAE knows no bounds, and the villa suites at this Ras Al Khaimah resort are no exception. Inspired by traditional Bedouin tents, each villa offers its own pool, deck overlooking the desert, a spacious lounge area and a bathroom with floor-to-ceiling windows. Whether it’s an introduction to falconry, horse riding or archery, a fishing expedition or a seat within a camel caravan, the resort can create an itinerary that speaks to your interests and curiosities.
