Banyan Tree Ras Al Khaimah Beach
Located just 20 minutes away, offers a selection of recreational activities like snorkelling, water-skiing, wake-boarding and sailing in the shimmering turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. Schooner-chartering, fishing and scuba-diving trips can also be organised. Guests who prefer to lounge by the private beach may do so in comfort at the Beach bar.
Al Wadi Nature Reserve is Ras Al Khaimah’s first managed protected area and spans 100 hectares of desert in the Ghaf Tree wooded valley of Wadi Khadeeja. Aside from protecting the indigenous fauna and flora that occur in the area, the reserve is also home to three reintroduced indigenous antelope species, namely the Sand gazelle (Rheem), Arabian gazelle (Domani) and the endangered Arabian oryx (Maha). They can often be seen roaming amongst the villas or coming to drink at the Saffron Water hole, without even twitching an ear, as guests stop to admire them up close.
Suit-up and head out from The Stables into our tranquil nature reserve, passing Arabian Oryx and Sand Gazelle as they roam the dunes. If you are less confident on horseback, then spend time at our training arena having a lesson or an introduction to riding.
Bird Watching Hide
Positioned adjacent to the Safran Water Hole, you are able to sit and observe our indigenous wildlife as they come to drink, without disturbing them. Many migratory birds also stop to feed at the waters’ edge en-route to their winter grounds, thousands of miles away.
Khan Zaman Tent
Be taken back in time when you enter our traditional Bedouin tent on the fringe of the nature reserve and head out on a swaying camel to take in the beauty of an Arabian Sunset.
