#10 of 35 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.

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.

The hotel is right on the beach. It has a couple of swimming pools that have lots of sun beds so something for everyone. The staff are really friendly and the team at the Sea and See Bar sang Happy Birthday to me so well. Thank you guys!! Ahmed in the Turkish Bar is amazing as are the Vine Leaves! This place is so clean but I don’t know who cleans my room. I only know that they are so fast that when I get up I’m the middle of the night the bed has been made before I get back in it. Massive thanks to my favorite waiter Gangasagar from the Italian. If you meet this guy you will understand what I mean So there you go. A lovely stay whilst the world is turmoil and a tribute to your hard work Anuj Midha. God bless you all and best regards to Horst.

From the minute we walked through the door we were blown away. Receptionist Ehab showed us the room and it was immaculate. Maria later helped us and was amazing. The world was changing and the hygiene of the hotel was of the highest order all the way through the holiday. By far my favourite place to dine was the Italian as Gangasagar and Geraldine were so amazing and really looked after us. If you come to this hotel please make sure you find these guys. If you are looking for the best waiter and server in this place then look for Ahmed in the Turkish Restaurant. If he suggests something - take it, what a palate - and the best vine leaves I have ever had and they are my favourite dish. Great stay, great place, great staff!!

We'd been warned that the buffet was poor, so the first thing we did on checking in for our 4 night stay, was to book our evening meals (included in the ultra-all-inclusive package) in the restaurants. So glad we did! MEAT POINT - excellent! - I recommend the lamb cutlets, and coffee crème brulee! FISH BONE- so good we ate here twice! - I recommend the prawn stew appetiser and pan roasted whole sea bass main. I was too full both times to try the profiteroles! L'OLIVIO - excellent for dinner (and a good smaller lunch menu with no booking needed) - I recommend the lamb shanks for dinner main course and the lemon crème brulee. This hotel's pastry kitchen clearly knows how to do great crème brulees! And while I'm talking about the restaurants, I'd like to say what a fabulous Maître 'd Fish Bone has at dinner service, in M Ibrahim. He made everyone feel as if they were the most special guests, kept children and adults alike entertained with his tricks with the toothpicks, and chatted to diners in multiple languages. A true asset to the hotel's F&B department, he also oversaw the smooth lunch service at L'Olivio. A quick mention for TOAST & BURGER too,which serves a much better breakfast than the buffet and up til midday, if you're feeling lazy in the morning! And a very nice burger during the rest of the day. There is a good variety of swimming pools, including an adults only one, which was perfect for us. Plenty of bars serving drinks and snacks, which are all included in the price - unless you want some specific premium brand item, but staff will tell you if that is the case, so you won't end up with a surprise bill on check-out. All the staff we met were lovely. Very friendly, helpful and professional. There were plenty of hand-sanitiser gel dispensers around. The mini-bars in the rooms are refilled daily - included in the package - with crisps, a small pack of biscuits, soft drinks, water and a couple of Amstel beers. The only thing that wasn't great was the cleanliness of the bedroom which, at this worrying time of Coronavirus was a surprise. On our arrival I noticed coffee had been spilled down the front of the mini-bar cupboard door, by a previous guest, and had not been cleaned up. This meant this surface had not been wiped since at least the previous guests checked out, and made us worry what else had not been wiped. Luckily we had enough packs of antibacterial wipes with us to wipe down every surface and door handle in the room and bathroom. At this worrying time, we'd have wiped all door handles and the TV remote control anyway, but all the rest should not have been necessary. The carpet, I'm sorry to say, was well-overdue for a good shampooing too - I dread to think what's lurking in those stained fibres ... There was a fabulous show on the Sunday night which took us quite by surprise. Excellent dancers - we especially loved the "Chicago" routine!
