Recent guest reviews
The property is located about 1 hour away from Dubai airport with the taxi. If you would like to relax in a nice resort, this is the perfect choice. Starting with an amazing breakfast at the terrace overviewing the pool area and looking to the sea side you can kick off the day. My best experience was the UMI, a very nice Japanese restaurant located in the first floor of the hotel. Staff there is very friendly and makes you feel welcome from the first minute. The Chef prepares amazing Japanese dishes from his home country. Thanks a lot UMI team, you are phantastic. I will always remember you.
Beautiful hotel. Never stayed anywhere where the staff are so polite, friendly and go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable and nothing is too much trouble. Outstanding restaurants with amazing food. Totally relaxing and restful stay. Thank you
Excellent stay over the weekend. Extremely polite and attentive staff who were always ready to go the extra mile for whatever was asked of them. Good location and close to the beach. Extensive choice at breakfast but the menu was the same each day during our stay. Wish it was a bit varied. Very few Indian choices both at breakfast and at dinner.
We stayed here for one night in their junior suite and I have to say that it was a wonderful experience. From the arrival on, where their very extravagant lobby shows in all of its glory to walk to the rooms through very wide corridors up to arrival, the feeling was great. But when we saw the room it was just perfect. Attention to detail is amazing and the view from the room was perfect. Here let me mention also their bathrobes because they are really the best I ever saw (and tried). Also their pool are is very nice and breakfast was very nice also. The only thing where we notice space for improvement was F&B Service but for sure they are already working on that also. Overall, a great experience!
Wonderful hotel, beautiful room and amenities. The staff were friendly and very professional. Best breakfast buffet we have encountered and we travel a lot! Will definitely return to this hotel for another visit. Outstanding service with a relaxed atmosphere.
We stayed at this hotel for a week across to include New Years Eve and having visited before a couple of years ago found the same high quality as we had previously. The hotel is simply stunning and the service is to match - rooms are exquisite and the pool and beach areas not overly crowded even at this high occupancy time of the year. Having been to Dubai for the previous New Year we fancied something a little less manic this time around and Ras al Khaimah gauranteed the sunshine and delivered a relaxing break and a fantastic New Year's Eve - not quite the Dubai fireworks but pretty spectacular none the less! The sumptuous New Years Eve Ball thrown by the hotel really looked 'full on' but we chose to buy tickets to a local restaurant and bar which threw a superb New Years Eve bash. The Waldorf is a superb hotel and a delight to be in but we like it that you can walk to a number of restaurants and bars within a few minutes and a shopping mall within about fifteen minutes. The golf course and driving range also a few minutes away. An hours drive from Dubai airport we would highly recommend this hotel and it's location if you're looking for a relaxing break in the guaranteed sunshine rather than the hustle and bustle of Dubai. We've now been twice and will undoubtably be back. It was superb for a New Years stay.
Very good Experience. Good food. Beautiful beach and hotel view from beachside. Good pool and room service. Better if they allowed a ride in one of the Ferraris parked outside 😀. Breakfast at qasr al bahar is also very good.
We have just returned for spending 12 days at this hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. Our room was a junior king suite overlooking the sea and the room style, decor, size and layout are all exceptional. The check-in was quick and smooth and Faith on reception was very professional and polite, we were then shown to our room by Tapesh and we were made to feel very welcome and at home and I think it's a really nice touch to show people to the room in this way. Both pools were lovely but was great to have the adult pool to be able to swim laps or relax and read. We found overselves on the beach most days where we were very well looked after by Jinaid who was always smiling and full of funny stories, he looked after us very well and we miss him! The food in the restaurants was of a very good standard. The breakfast selection in particular is excellent. All the staff in the restaurant work so hard and look after the guests so well. The Chefs are all really helpful and polite. We were greeted each day by Amit and Bainty who were so friendly and kind to us. Our room was kept spotless by Hussain & Alton - and they left us little surprises which was a lovely treat! Overall if you want pure relaxation and pampering - this is the place for you. We went with the half board option and were pleased we did. It is correct that the allowance you get for the other restaurants is small but we found the food in the main restaurant so good we were more than happy to have dinner there. Finally I must mention that a real highlight of our stay was enjoying a drink in the Peacock Lounge and listening to the exceptional Anna Gamal playing piano - she is a magnificent talent and it was really something special to hear her play!
We were there for 2 days for a marriage. Most or all the rooms of hotel were being used by us. We had programs everywhere in the hotel and hotel service was wonderful. Our room on the eighth floor was huge with a separate drawing room, huge bathroom and a good size balcony with lovely views of the hotel greenery and very clean beach. From reception to every part it was huge and royal. Minimum size of the room was around 800-900 square feet. It was very good experience but surely it is quite away form the city.
Having recently returned home from our 5 night stay, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your wonderful staff for making our 4th visit to the Waldorf Astoria just as fantastic! We would like to mention a few members of staff who always go above and beyond to make our vacations memorable every year. Firstly, we were warmly welcomed by Nitika, who always made sure we had everything we required and also Tintu, Mattius, Kevin and Jessica who greeted us everyday with her delightful smile. In the Qasr Al Bahar, we would like to thank Akram, Michelle, Meghna and Banty. Akram and also Chef Sumit went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They really looked after us and always remember us from previous stays. Our thanks also go to Roy, Harpreet, Vishva, and Anjula who made us feel welcome once again. Nicky on towels, and Francisca, who made a special effort to find us and greeted us with open arms. To be greeted with such warmth and friendliness, help us make the decision to select the Waldorf Astoria as our choice of accommodation for all our vacations to the UAE. Special thanks to Gabriel, Rajesh, Vishwa, Raju and all the team at the Poolside Bar. We missed seeing Kumar around the Pool Bar! As we see these people every year, they are now more than staff to us as guests, we consider them friends. The only thing, we just found the beach towels to be looking a little old and worn. We are always sad when leaving this wonderful hotel and are looking forward to planning our next vacation here! Without exception, the entire hotel staff were extremely helpful. Please do pass our thanks to all the staff mentioned and we appreciate all their hard work in making our stay another memorable one. The Walder Family
