For the ultimate privacy and relaxation, guests can opt for Maldivian-inspired water villas, the first of their kind in Ras Al Khaimah. These overwater spaces boast expansive decks, private plunge pools, and panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf and natural mangrove lagoons. Villa guests will also enjoy being pampered with complimentary experiences, including deep massages, a reserved cabana on a resort-only beach, and private barbecues.

Further options include a gourmet deli with curated meats, a pool bar, and a lobby lounge and bar. A personal chef is available courtesy of Dining by Design for more intimate experiences, serving romantic meals for two on the beach or aboard a private yacht. 

A collection of signature excursions await guests, including a gourmet picnic and hike on Jebel Jais (the highest mountain in the UAE), guided kayaking through the natural mangroves, and sunset cruises on a private yacht. For thrill-seeking travelers, Ras Al Khaimah offers world-class activities, including a ride on the world’s longest zip line, tobogganing, hot air ballooning, and more.

For the more weary travelers, unwind and rejuvenate at Anantara Spa, offering indigenous ingredients and traditional therapies amidst stunning garden views overlooking the sea.

Guests can visit Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort with a minimized carbon footprint with the resort’s green commitments to preserving its surrounding environment, reducing waste and energy consumption and sustainably building all accommodations with eco-friendly materials.
