Radisson Resort Ras Al Khaimah, Marjan Island: a tranquil oasis for family staycations
Nestled on the pristine Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah, the Radisson Resort is a haven of tranquillity that promises an unforgettable family staycation or a romantic getaway for couples.
With its array of facilities for all ages, the resort offers a perfect blend of relaxation and recreation, set against a backdrop of breathtaking natural beauty.
The Radisson Resort Ras Al Khaimah truly shines as a family-friendly destination. Upon arrival, we were greeted by warm, friendly and helpful staff that made us feel like we had a ‘personal care squad!’ One of the standout features for families is the comprehensive play facilities for children, which is centered around a well-supervised pool area, complete with water slides, plenty of splashing and the sound of children having an absolute blast! This in itself is a magnet for kids, as they’re all enthusiastic to join in the water play.
The resort boasts direct access to its own private beach. And not just any beach – there is something very special about the beach area of the Radisson that makes you feel like you are on your own little slice of pure island paradise. You’ll need beach shoes because you’ll come across some prickly shells dotted on the sand, but who cares?! It is safe, the water is warm, shallow, clean, refreshing and heavenly. On this beach, perhaps more than any other I’ve experienced in the UAE, you truly feel a million miles away from the world!
Food & Dining
With the kids safely splashing away in the kids area and you relaxing on the beach with a good book, you won’t have to leave the resort to find delicious buffet-style meals all day at the resort’s RBG restaurant! Mediterranean dishes are served at the La Med restaurant and you can enjoy fresh fish and seafood at the Seafood Shack. The shisha terrace is also a great spot for post-dinner chilling. For snacks and drinks any time, the resort’s Bake House offers a variety of sandwiches, snacks, and a pick-me-up coffee.
One of the most mesmerising aspects of my stay was the breathtaking sunsets that graced the horizon each evening. The resort’s beachfront location allowed us to witness these awe-inspiring vistas in all their glory. Watching the sun slowly dip below the horizon while casting dramatic hues of peach, fire orange and vibrant pinks and purples across the sky was an experience that left us in utter awe of the magic beauty of this resort and its private beach.
Peace and Tranquility
The Radisson Resort Ras Al Khaimah, despite its many family-friendly features, excels in providing a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. The well-maintained grounds and thoughtful layout of the resort ensured that even during peak hours, we never felt overcrowded. Whether strolling along the beach or relaxing on our room’s private balcony overlooking the Arabian Gulf, a sense of calm permeated the air, allowing us to truly unwind and recharge.
Convenient Drive from Dubai
The drive from Dubai to the resort takes around 70 minutes, making it an easily accessible destination for both locals and tourists. This proximity allowed us to embark on a spontaneous getaway without the hassle of extensive travel, adding to the overall appeal of the staycation.
Perfect for Families and Couples
The Radisson Resort Ras Al Khaimah strikes a remarkable balance between family-friendly offerings and romantic allure. While we enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere and range of activities, the resort also emanated an intimate ambiance that couples seeking a romantic break would appreciate. The adult-only spaces, including the serene spa and secluded corners of the beach, provides couples with the privacy and tranquility needed to reconnect and unwind.
In conclusion, the Radisson Resort Ras Al Khaimah, Marjan Island, is a hidden gem that offers a world of relaxation, adventure, and beauty. Its family-focused facilities, stunning sunsets, and serene environment make it an ideal spot for families seeking a memorable staycation.
