Ras Al Khaimah has become the destination of the moment, thanks to a new luxury launch for the Ritz Carlton’s seaside property Al Hamra, as well as the opening of the world’s longest zipline upon Jebel Jais. The Emirate has long been a favourite with outdoor enthusiasts who have been making trails throughout the dramatic Hajar Mountain range for decades. For those looking for a more relaxed pace, there are several resorts by the sea and within the desert that offer a tranquil retreat.
Much like the tiny pearl in the oyster, the smallest Emirate of Ajman has become quite the treasure. We recommend a visit to the stunning Al Zorah Marina and Golf Club along with the Oberoi Beach Resort situated on its own private beach for a beautiful weekend escape.

Get up close to free-roaming animals native to the Emirates and those distant lands. Marvel at elegant Arabian Oryx grazing the savannahs, and watch elegant African giraffe delicately nibble leaves. Take your pick from the resorts located across the island and explore unique hilltops formed by salt domes from millions of years ago. Make a splash and arrive by seaplane, it is the only way to fly.
