Explore Ras Al Khaimah with Elegant Resorts
The most far northern emirate of the United Arab Emirates, Ras Al Khaimah (meaning ‘Top of the Tent’), nestles at the foot of the majestic Al Hajar Mountains and borders the Sultanate of Oman. The emirate’s landscape is filled with vast swathes of sandy desert, sweeping sand dunes and a long coastline dotted with tranquil lagoons and golden beaches, making it the perfect luxury Elegant Resorts' holiday destination.
Famous for its natural attractions, visitors can enjoy sailing along the rivers in the traditional dhows as well as camel-riding, falconry and wadi safaris. Like the other emirates, Ras Al Khaimah boasts many excellent shopping malls and restaurants and, as it is still relatively undiscovered, you’ll find it less crowded than its more popular counterparts.
Ramadan, which is observed for one month each year, is a period of fasting when the pace of life is slower, public areas are busier and there are certain restrictions, for example, consuming food in public, drinking alcohol and use of restaurants. There are also a number of Holy Days, Festival Days and National Days throughout the year, which may result in DRY DAYS (whereby alcohol will not be available in hotel bars and restaurants). Please speak to your Travel Consultants for further details.
