#13 of 36 hotels in Ras Al Khaimah
Situated on the pristine white sands of Ras Al Khaimah’s tranquil Marjan Island, Rixos Bab Al Bahr enjoys the beautiful beach, stylish rooms, upmarket restaurants, stunning views, and comprehensive amenities you may expect from a five star beach resort in the Middle East. But what really sets Rixos Bab Al Bahr apart is the all-inclusive concept of this Ras Al Khaimah hotel. A resort with a difference: at Rixos Bab Al Bahr, guests can indulge in a variety of restaurants at no additional cost. With few exceptions, everything is inclusive from the kaleidoscope of cuisine in Seven Heights and the delicious selection of unlimited beverages in See & Sea, Mojito Bar and Inferno night club, to the diverse choice of entertainment and nightlife, kids clubs, spa, sports, and recreational activities. Five delectable a la carte restaurants, including a steakhouse and a seafood restaurant, offer a more diverse dining experience some at just a small supplement per person. The spectacular pyramid design of the resort ensures that nearly every one of the resort’s 650 rooms and suites enjoys a view of the crystal blue Arabian Gulf. In addition to being the ultimate getaway for families, one of the resort’s three pyramids is a dedicated adults-only zone and configured into suites to suit larger parties of friends and couples. Decorated in cool, sophisticated hues of azure and bronze, the rooms feature a wealth of comfort and convenience while the marble-clad bathrooms add an extra touch of luxury. As the perfect ultra all-inclusive resort for families, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Rixos Bab Al Bahr. At the heart of the resort, surrounded by waterways, is Seven Heights, our all day dining restaurant and one of the UAE’s largest buffet restaurants that features an array of world cuisines. Throughout the day, guests can enjoy breakfast here followed by lunch and dinner or they can snack on a variety of drinks and poplar dishes from the many poolside and beachside outlets - including a 24 hours Toast'n burger bar and Aisha lobby lounge Bar - all inclusive in the package. By night, the entertainment square opens up to a magical amphitheatre of five world-class a la carte restaurants*, including the popular Mojito Bar. Here guests can enjoy drinks and dinner against the beautiful backdrop of Marjan Island and spectacular entertainment show of international proclaim. Please note: ultra-premium food or beverage items may be subject to a surcharge. A la carte restaurant bookings are essential and can be made at the resort’s interactive kiosks adjacent to the lobby. DAY & NIGHTLIFE Whether it's winter or summer, Rixos Bab Al Bahr will keep you entertained. Our host of diverse entertainment options changes on a seasonal basis and offers options perfect for families, groups of friends and couples. During the winter months, the entertainment at our hotel focuses on the great outdoors. Organised fun and games in our temperature controlled pool make up the majority of the daytime activities, as do our weekend beach parties. Those looking to relax and enjoy the view will love the beachside adults-only Infinity Pool with its own bar. The cool winter nights are marked by live music, dancing, famous shows and breath-taking acrobatics at Entertainment Square, our purpose-built amphitheater. Revelers can party late into the night at the nearby nightclub, Inferno. As the temperatures rise during summer months, the evening entertainment moves indoors. Guests can still enjoy daytime activities, which revolve around live music performances at Seven Heights. Evening entertainment includes live music and jazz nights, karaoke, quizzes, retro parties, and theme nights continue at Mojito Bar, before the action moves to the nightclub Inferno. LEISURE Take your beach experience to a new level of luxury with Cabana Oasis at Rixos Bab Al Bahr. Select from one of four unique packages and enjoy a day lounging by the pristine shoreline. Guests can also wander the numerous pathways that wind around the resort. Studded with upmarket boutiques offering a range of enticing retail options, the souq-like paths offer a shady retreat from the daytime sun or a beautiful location to enjoy a star-lit evening walk. For those wishing to venture a little further afield, the resort is located just ten minutes away from the shops and facilities of Al Hamra Mall and Al Hamra Golf Course. Also just a few minutes away is the Ice Land Waterpark – fun for all the family – and many of Ras Al Khaimah’s cultural and heritage sites. SPA & WELLNESS Take a deep breath and relax with Rixos Bab Al Bahr Spa. Two ultra-luxurious Ottoman spas – one for men, one for women – are the largest spas in Ras Al Khaimah and provide everything you need to achieve a state of complete and utter relaxation. Whether you have selected a spa vacation, or are simply enjoying a respite from the excitement of the resort, Rixos Bab Al Bahr Spa is the ultimate haven of serenity. Each spa has a secluded private swimming pool area – perfect for sunbathing or enjoying a cool water dip whereas the most enchanting area of the spa is undeniably the traditional Turkish Hammams, where you can embark on the time-honoured ritual of deep cleansing scrub, undertaken beneath the decorative architecture of the Hammam’s central dome. Guests can also enjoy unlimited access to the steam room and sauna and quiet reading and relaxing areas. In addition to the wide range of complimentary facilities, guests can indulge in a host of pampering spa wellness therapies, beauty treatments and a beauty salon. MEETING & CONFERENCE FACILITIES Home to one of Ras Al Khaimah’s most prestigious event halls, the dedicated Conference Centre is the ultimate destination for business meetings and corporate events. The flexible size of the main hall – accessed separately from the main hotel entrance - can accommodate more than 880 people, ideal for weddings, conferences, seminars and product launches. Three distinct meeting rooms provide a capacity ranging between 58 and 120 people, perfect for smaller business events and special receptions.

We are still at the Rixos however we wanted to do a quick review about the great team of housekeeping staff we have making such a great job of the room. We are staying in a 3 bed king suite and they are really professional and friendly and can’t do enough. We always have plenty of fresh towels, beds are all made and the bathrooms are spotless. The team we have are Tara, Abhijeet and Asif. Thank you 😊

We arrived early in the morning 01:30 no welcome greeting, no welcome drink or towel to be refreshed,we paid extra for a sea view,pool view upgraded room,the room we got was on the 1st floor, limited sea view,the room was gloomy, wallpaper hanging off, curtains ripped, we asked to be moved,the 2nd room was no better,but they couldn’t give us any other room, no mini bar items,no juice, no beer, just a bottle of water,the room was damp, and mouldy, our £9000 Dubai holiday bubble had been burst,we wanted to go home, I contacted TUI who informed me that I would have to pay extra to move! Our 2nd day was frustration, guest relations were contacted, and to be fair they got me another room,which was a little better,but our issues continued, no bath towels, always having to ask for new clean ones, the mini bar issues were resolved only after insisting they fill it up.daily towel issues rumbled on, more and more guests were arriving, the queues getting bigger each meal time,breakfast,lunch,evening meals always having to queue,wearing masks inside is mandatory but for some it seemed to be difficult,as they were always trying to get away without wearing them, We only managed to eat in three al a Carts, then the second week we couldn’t get any booked,!!! We sunbathed at the infinity pool, as there was so many kids in the other pools, Edwin was a lovely bartender,paper cups for drinking! Prosecco doesn’t taste the same out of paper, beer again tastes horrible out of paper cups, err isn’t this a 5*hotel? On Friday last week a group of English stags turned up and trashed the pool area, throwing drink all around and spewing on the pool area, the management allowed this to happen, as they shook hands and gave high fives to them, (to keep them happy) my sunbed was directly opposite these animals, and in the end I challenged them myself, as no one else was going too. We ate in the seafood resteraunt and our salmon was cold inside and under cooked(grilled fish) This hotel is certainly not a five star, Good luck if you come,as you will be dissapointed.

Food was extremely good with a great variety everyday. All the staff were exceptional - of special note was Dipak at the fish restaurant, Shivan Kumar our house-keeping associate and Lord who was fantastic and went out of his way to help. Could not recommend this hotel for a break any more highly.
