Anantara Opens New Luxury Resort in Ras Al Khaimah in Q4 2023

Minor Hotels, a global frontrunner in the hospitality industry, is set to redefine luxury in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates, with its forthcoming resort.

Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort, presently in the last phase of its development, is set to welcome guests by the end of this year, marking the brand’s ninth venture in the UAE.

Situated on Mina Al Arab Island, this majestic resort boasts a 1.5-kilometre-long backdrop of mangroves and lagoons amidst a nature reserve. The prime location offers unparalleled views of the Hajar mountains and is conveniently located a short drive from both Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah International Airports.

Synonymous with sustainable luxury, the resort houses 174 opulent rooms, suites, and villas, including Ras Al Khaimah’s first-ever over-water villas. Notably, every part of the resort showcases eco-friendly construction with sustainable wood, recycled fabrics, and plastics. Additional green initiatives at the resort encompass greywater waste recycling, thermodynamics, solar panels, and a water bottling plant.

Every guest room offers breathtaking views of the sea, lagoons, or surrounding landscapes. For a touch of exclusivity, the over-water villas not only provide private pools but also direct access to a secluded private beach, complete with a beach cabana and top-tier a la carte service. Family travel is facilitated with interconnecting rooms and additional beds.

The resort aims to offer unparalleled luxury, from the Anantara Spa’s hammam rituals to the state-of-the-art fitness centre and expansive outdoor pool. Guests can also enjoy diverse culinary delights from Southeast Asian flavors at Mekong to seafood specialities at Beach House. The eco-conscious heart of the resort is evident in its dedication to protecting the region’s diverse wildlife, including rare dugongs, turtles, and various bird species.

Given the resort’s unique locale, surrounded by wetlands and pristine beaches, it serves as the perfect backdrop for exclusive events, from intimate celebrations to corporate get-togethers.

Amir Golbarg, Senior Vice President of Minor Hotels Middle East and Africa, expressed his anticipation for the resort, stating that guests will be treated to a sustainable luxury experience in a stunning natural setting. Echoing these sentiments, Sameh Muhtadi, CEO of RAK Properties, emphasized the collaboration’s alignment with their vision of providing luxury that deeply respects the surrounding beauty.

In the heart of an emirate known for its rich history and adventurous landscapes, Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort is poised to offer a blend of luxury and sustainability, making it a must-visit destination in the UAE.
