Maurizio Papiri's Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah opens its doors to first guests

Luxury hospitality brand Waldorf Astoria has expanded into the United Arab Emirates with the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah. The 346-room hotel retains the opulence of the international brand but introduces local touches, including a Waldorf Astoria Spa with treatments incorporating indigenous herbs and rituals.

Designed by Italian architect Maurizio Papiri, the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah boasts generous room and suite sizes, an 18-hole championship golf course, a 350m-long private beach, two temperature-controlled outdoor pools, a nightclub, cigar bar, outdoor and indoor dining options, and multiple entertainment facilities. The hotel will also be targeting the corporate sector with top-end meeting and board rooms, supported by a full business centre.

John T. A. Vanderslice, Global Brand Head of Waldorf Astoria at Hilton Worldwide said: “Across the globe, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts are known for timeless elegance, inspirational environments and the extraordinary experiences provided to guests each day. Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah will epitomise these values to become a destination of choice for discerning travellers seeking refined style, True Waldorf Service and authentic moments that will stay with them forever.”
