Feel like getting away from it all, but bank balance looking pretty miserable? Now open in Ras Al Khaimah, the Hilton Garden Inn offers an affordable escape to another emirate, and it’s just a 75-minute drive from Dubai.
The brand-new hotel may not be as decadent as some of the five-star properties in RAK charging Dhs1,000 a night, but considering a room here will cost you less than a third of that, who’s complaining? Until October 8, 2017, rooms at the property start from just Dhs280.
Located right on the banks of Ras Al Khaimah’s Creek, and with views out to the Hajar mountain range, the hotel has a temperature-controlled pool on the water’s edge, two bars (The Garden Bar and Pool Bar) and The Garden Grille restaurant. There’s also a 24-hour fitness centre, two floodlit tennis courts and a free shuttle service and access to the private beach at the Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa.
From Dhs280 per room, per night (subject to availability, blackout dates apply). Hilton Garden Inn Ras Al Khaimah, City Centre, Ras Al Khaimah (07 228 8888).
