Just north of Dubai, this desert oasis combines history with modern Arabic culture for a mixture that’s hard to replicate. With a culture dating back thousands of years, archaeological sites sit next to traditional markets known as souks, and camel tracks meander through the terracotta sands. The Experience Concierge at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert can arrange a desert trek on camel or horseback, a private archery lesson or an evening of stargazing. Take full advantage of your proximity to nature with dinner at the property's Al Wadi Tower, which the property's architects modeled after traditional Al Wadi desert watchtowers. Dine in a private and luxurious setting, complete with your own private waiter, while taking in the essence of traditional outdoor desert dining.
