Review of Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

Ivan & Linda McComb

Beautiful hotel with spacious grounds. Rooms most luxurious and housekeeping excellent. Only ate in the buffet as on half board but always plentiful and varied.

Review of Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

Simon & Verity Peatfield

The hotel, beach, accommodation, staff were all fantastic. The pool space was super clean and the steak, Japanese, Arabic and poolside restaurants were all very, very good. Our only complaint was the breakfast buffet which was really not very nice, so most days we just skipped breakfast ate by the pool instead.
