His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council of the UAE and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, joined Hilton Worldwide’s President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher J. Nassetta at the official opening of the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah with a ribbon cutting ceremony held this week at the property.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome His Highness and Mr. Nassetta to the much awaited formal opening of this iconic luxury hotel,” said Andre Herrenschmidt, general manager, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah. “Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts is a brand known for their inspirational environments, authentic moments and True Waldorf Service. Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah has enveloped these values to become a destination for discerning travellers in the GCC and around the globe,” he added.

From arrival to departure, guests are not only embraced by Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, but are welcomed by True Waldorf Service, a service initiative that assigns a personal concierge to each qualified guest who acts as their primary contact, before, during and – an industry first – after a stay, to guarantee every want and request is met.

Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is cradled by the Hajar Mountains, a championship golf course, white sandy beaches and the azure waters of the Arabian Sea. The hotel is a mere 50 minutes from Dubai International Airport and brings True Waldorf Service to one of the most alluring beach front locations in the Middle East.

Ras Al Khaimah is the destination of choice for adventure, nature and tranquillity. This rising emirate boasts beautiful and dramatic mountains, azure blue sea with white beaches, red sandy deserts and lush green plains indented by a series of creeks and lagoons. Ras Al Khaimah has a rich heritage, dating back over 5000 years, which manifests in numerous historical sites, forts and abandoned villages. The Emirate is also famous for its exceptional pearls.
