Hilton opens new resort in RAK
THE spectacular Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa, Hilton’s second property and first ‘Worldwide Resort’ in the emirate was set to open in January, 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 sqm sea-facing spa will open with nine treatment rooms and other fitness facilities.
On completion in 2008, the property will provide a further 330 rooms.
