Hilton opens up in Ras Al Khaimah

The spectacular Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa, Hilton’s second property and first ‘Worldwide Resort’ in the Emirate opens this week (January 10, 2007), with 151 villa suites right on the beach front. The first phase sees the launch of the deluxe villa suites all within 30 metres of an 800 metre stretch of white, sandy beach and features private patios with mountain and sea views. The resort also introduces two restaurants and two bars.

‘Ras Al Khaimah is the UAE’s most favoured weekend getaway destination offering a Riviera feel. With a burgeoning tourist sector, the emirate is one of the region’s most talked about hot spots,’ said Mohab Ghali, the resort’s General Manager.

‘We are pleased to introduce our resort at a time when the emirate is undergoing ambitious development. The resort will envelop visitors with an overwhelming sense of luxury; enviable beach privacy, exclusive treatment and superlative resort facilities are just a few of the many luxuries that make this a complete world-class getaway experience.’

The new resort is set in a private bay and surrounded by the beautiful white sands of the UAE’s most northern emirate. With tradition in mind, the Worldwide Resort represents an Arabesque design, providing visitors with a sense of Arabian culture.

In March 2007, a spectacular 2,000 square metre sea-facing spa will open with nine treatment rooms, hairdressing salon, sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish Hammam Bath and spacious steam, fitness, aerobics and relaxation rooms.

On-site facilities for the resort will include four free-form, temperature controlled swimming pools, comprehensive water sports facilities, fully equipped gym and health club, laundry and valet, car rental, tour guides on hand, business centre and shopping arcade.

The Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa complements Ras Al Khaimah’s existing Hilton property, the 227-room Hilton Ras Al Khaimah and Beach Club.
