The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert is an all-pool-villa resort, formerly run by Banyan Tree. We love the style of the villas here featuring cosy living areas, stand-alone tubs and infinity pools. Some have steps directly down to the dunes, while others are more private. The professional and discreet service is also impressive.
