The design is inspired by the three original tribes of the emirate, the desert, mountains and sea, and offers 351 sea facing rooms, suites, and private pool villas, six dining outlets and an exclusive Club InterContinental offering.

Haitham Mattar, managing director India, Middle East and Africa for IHG, said: “Ras Al Khaimah’s reputation has grown internationally and has put the Emirate on the world travel map.
