Flanked by rolling red sand dunes and infinite desert landscape, Banyan Tree al Wadi is the first resort in the UAE to offer an all-pool villa concept, complete with Asian-inspired hydrotherapy spa facilities, a private beach club and a nature reserve.
The tranquil desert landscape of Wadi Khadeja is a perfect backdrop to series of freestanding and tented pool villas, which blend harmoniously with the sands.
Sophisticated Arabian style
Lavishly furnished, the villas feature classic local design elements amongst high ceilings and walls of glass facing spacious terrace. Each has its own private pool and unobstructed views of the desert.
Al Wadi holds true to the traditional Arabic architecture, inspired by mud brick buildings of Ras Al Khaimah—indeed mud brick were used to construct the hotel. Elaborate Arabic motifs of lattice woodwork and intricate carvings feature throughout.
Two fabulous restaurants
Saffron and Al Waha serve international dishes, contemporary Thai cuisine and Southeast Asian specialties.
Guests can choose to dine indoors—where floor-to-ceiling windows set the stage for metres-high sand dunes—or on the outdoor terrace, ideal to enjoy sublime desert sunsets.
For guests who like to be active
Hotel invites to try traditional falconry, camel and horse riding, escorted desert and mountain safaris, or a dhow cruise (traditional Arabic sailing vessel)—as well as an 18-hole golf course.
Other facilities at the resort include a dedicated Kids’ Club, signature spa and the Banyan Tree Al Wadi Beach Club: one of the region’s most exclusive private beach resorts, which is located twenty minutes away in the Arabian Gulf.
