Located in tranquil and eco-rich Wadi Khadeja in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates, Banyan Tree Al Wadi is found amidst 100 hectares of private nature reserve, home to indigenous plants and wildlife
Set against the magnificent Al Hajjar mountains, this oasis of indulgence is the first luxury desert resort in the Emirates offering all-pool villas complete with 3,999 sqm of Asian-inspired hydrotherapy spa facilities and access to a private beach resort.
The elegant fortress-like façade of the resort holds true to traditional Arabic architecture, blending harmoniously with the rolling desert dunes. Consisting of 101 pool-villas, some of the villas depict the traditional mud brick architecture of Ras Al Khaimah, whilst others emulate the nomadic tents of Bedouin tribes.
Unique facilities include “The Rainforest” hydrotherapy spa with hammam and vitality pool, 10 treatments rooms, a kids club, a world-class falconry mews, horse and camel stables and access to a private beach. The signature Thai restaurant – Safran, offers authentic Thai cuisine, overlooking the nature reserve’s watering hole where wildlife gather during sunset. Al Waha, meaning ‘oasis’ in Arabic, serves popular international fare and local Arabic specialties.
Private Destination Dining experiences for guests are set atop vast sand dunes; this unique experience offers a night of dining under the vast Arabian sky. In true Bedouin- style, guests sit around a campfire while enjoying traditional dishes, marking an exquisite and memorable dinner.
