Want to get away from it all this winter? Ras Al Khaimah has got year-round sun you’re craving for. And what’s more, Luxair now offers direct flights from Luxembourg until 28th February 2019.
Made up of seven emirates, the United Arab Emirates is perhaps more well-known for the glitz of Dubai and the cosmopolitan capital Abu Dhabi. However, sitting between the desert, the mountains and the sea, Ras Al Khaimah is a destination in its own right. It has something for everyone, from the glamourous luxury hotels with views of unspoiled sandy beaches, to the rugged Hajar mountain range with a host of adrenaline-fuelled activities on offer (the peak of the Jebel Jais mountain is home to the world’s longest zip-line!). With its sensual mix of tradition and modernity, the city sure promises for an authentic Emirati experience.
15km south of Ras El Khaimah, the shores of Al Hamra are dotted with an array of luxury hotels, so why not holiday in style at the Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort. Resembling an Arabic fortress, this resort is decorated with Middle Eastern touches, has private access to the lagoon and numerous relaxing treatments at its spa. Meanwhile, the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah oozes a palatial charm that’ll take your breath away. Pass the day at the 350m-long private beach, play a round on the 18-hole golf course, then watch the sun go down as you dine on traditional Middle Eastern cuisine at the Marjan, one of 10 different stylish restaurants on offer inside the hotel.
