Hotel's Favourite
We left a stuffed toy that Ritz Carlton provided and only realized this when my daughter was looking for it mid-flight home. We wrote to the hotel to see if they can find the stuff camel. They (Ali & Salwa) went above and beyond by sending us the stuffed camel and included a picture (with a frame) and a sweet letter addressed to our daughter. What a way for Ritz Carlton and staff to relieve us from our anxiety of losing my daughter's new favorite toy! We already miss the resort and staff and we look forward to visiting again in the near future.

The state at Al Wadi is wonderful. A lovely integration of hotel grounds with nature.. from the moment you drive in to when you leave. Charith was our butler who helped organize our experience at the hotel & so thankful for his support.

Very mixed feelings writing this review. We recently came back from our first trip to the U.A.E. This resort was a "break" during our busy times sightseeing in Dubai before and after. It was the most expensive place on our stay and we were really looking forward to it. Leading up to our stay, it was very hard to confirm activities and transportation to the hotel. I had to email multiple times to get responses. Transportation ultimately was fine, but it should not have been that much work to arrange. When we arrived, the resort staff were extremely friendly and confirmed all of our pre-booked activities. The resort is extremely beautiful. Wild animals are commonly sighted. Our room was very spacious and the sofa bed rolls out to two separate beds for two children (I could not get this confirmed ahead of time - if it is perhaps helpful to others). We had many issues during our stay with activities being confused - despite having everything look great on the initial itinerary. We were called at 7 am for pick ups for activities we did not book. We were called for dining reservations which were not correct. My daughter did not get the horse-riding activity we signed up for - although this was eventually sorted. We also could not get bikes for our entire family despite repeated calls. Perhaps because it was a holiday week? Our general feeling was that the staff seemed extremely confused and that there's a lack of communication somewhere. Dining was a mixed bag as well. The breakfast buffet is very nice - although it was very busy at certain times. Farmhouse was excellent. Moorish and the Moon Bar have the same menu basically (not what was online - much more limited). Staffing there was extremely poor - we struggled to get any service. The Rainforest experience (walk through a serious of showers/pools/saunas) was unique and relaxing. The falconry show is also worth a visit (and free). So - in sum - our expectations were very high and it did not quite hit the mark, although it has many nice features & was perhaps affected by being a very busy week.

Response from Tracey Oliver, General Manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert
Responded 1 week ago
Dear BermudaTraveler1, Thank you for taking the time out to share your honest feedback of your most recent stay at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert. I can understand your anticipation for a well-deserved getaway with your family, and given that this is your first visit to the UAE. While I am delighted to note you enjoyed your dinner at Farmhouse and the unique Rainforest experience, however, it is very unfortunate to learn that your whole experience was marred by several lapses in service and lack of proper communication from my team which started when you are on the early stage of planning your itinerary. I agree that confirming activities and transportation should not have been a difficult process to arrange prior to your arrival. I have shared your valuable feedback to relevant departments to ensure we look into these opportunities you mentioned in-depth and improve further our communication from the moment we interact with our guests via email until their departure day. Once again, I would like to sincerely apologize for the inconveniences faced. Our Ladies & Gentlemen and I would love to have another opportunity to welcome your family so we can provide you with a better overall family stay experience. Please feel free to reach out to me directly via email at tracey.oliver@ritzcarlton.com if I may be of any further assistance. Best regards Tracey Oliver General Manager
