Destination: Ras Al Khaimah (RAK)

One of the 7 Emirates of UAE.  Here’s the LINK for you to know more about this rugged beauty.


different soil and colour from other emirates

Hubby finally had a short break from work and our last escapades before the start of school (last week) so yes this is a late post indeed.

The Accomodation

With a nice view of the Golf course when you open your window or veranda


Serenity at your doorstep

The Surroundings 

Some tourists from Europe mostly from Germany.

The sister hotel (5 star) as we only got the 4 star.  You can access the beach by coming to this place and enjoy the beauty of this luxurious hotel.  You might get confuse if you see the Al Hamra Palace Beach Resort side by side with  the Waldorf Astoria hotel which is among the luxurious hotel nearby. Here’s the photos.


Al Hamra Palace Beach Resort

May I add that RAK is more conservative than Abu Dhabi and Dubai, so please mind what you are wearing.  I have seen the locals giving a negative look at the woman with a boyfriend in tow holding her shopping bags, who was oblivious of her “dress code” in short shorts!  Remember ladies, you are in a different culture than yours so please mind your manners and clothing.  If you respect their cultures they will respect YOU too.  Just a friendly reminder.  It reminds me too when I first arrived in Dubai and on Ramadan season I have seen a very daring clothing from some Women who doesn’t bother to read the signs from the doors of every establishments and even on hotels leaflet see this LINK to my old post please check it out if interested and want to learn more about the life here in UAE.

Anyway this saying goes….

Thanks for your time reading this.  🙂

    • Hi thanks for reading and commenting. I am glad that you like it.
      Try to browse older post when you get the chance perhaps you may get interested in one of them.


  2. Hi, Vinneve. It’s good that you point out that observance of a country’s culture is an etiquette to follow. This is one of the most important things I learned here in Saudi.

    On a light note, you are so blessed to have this opportunity to visit places like what you have shown us here. Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), with this spectacular scenery, I wouldn’t think twice in visiting it if ever.


    • Yes thank you, but not enough. Will be back someday. The Village is nice with the golf view and the palace in sight. The Palace Residence is beside the beach so it’s like having 2 in 1 🙂
