Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

Respite in Ras al-Kaimah
After a 14-hour flight from JFK to Dubai, and warm welcome and reunion from an old friend who knew the exact place to catch up after several years: the Waldorf Astoria in Ras al-Kaimah (RAK), UAE. Much to my surprise, this WA was a delight....not overly opulent or at all dated but still decadent and lovely for two friends who love luxury, relaxation and spa.

Musts: dipping in the Persian Gulf, massage and lounge at the spa, live music in the lounge while sipping on champagne, morning breakfast buffet. And if you're lucky (like me) you could be gifted from your dear friends with the luxurious signature robe.
