Banyan Tree Al Wadi Hotel

Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates

Live like a sheik in a desert oasis with a retreat to the Banyan Tree Al Wadi. The resort, located in a nature reserve in the Ras Al Khaimah emirate, has 101 pool villas inspired by local mud-brick architecture and the nomadic tents of Bedouin tribes. Take a camel safari, spy the reserve’s 3 indigenous antelope species on a nature walk, ride bikes or take falconry classes, where you’ll learn how to handle and care for these birds of prey. If you prefer water sports, the resort’s private beach on the Arabian Gulf is just 20 minutes away. Upon return, head to the spa for a soothing end to your exciting day.
