Is this the UAE's best adults-only getaway?
Sponsored: Ula Ras Al Khaimah is the ultimate staycation you need to reset this winter…
One of our favourite things about living in Dubai is that every weekend feels like a holiday. And if you’re looking for true island bliss, it’s time to plan a getaway with the Ula Escape at Movenpick Al Marjan Island.
The newest staycation spot in Ras Al Khaimah is home to a gorgeous adults-only beach restaurant, Ula. If you’re familiar with the original in Dubai, you’ll known that this means dreamy interiors, smooth beats and a tasty menu of Mediterranean eats.
Take off for Marjan Island this winter and for Dhs1,200 per couple, you’ll be able to check-in to a double room at Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island inclusive of breakfast and enjoy an array of culinary and leisure extras. There’s complimentary access to adults-only Ula on Saturday with two sunbeds waiting with your name on. Soak up the stunning Tulum-inspired interiors, stroll along the 300-metre beachfront, take a dip in the turquoise infinity pool, or just top up your tan while sipping on a cocktail or two.
For dinner, Ula’s culinary creators have devised a special Ula Experience menu, with the flavours of the Mediterranean perfectly presented in sharing plates, which you can enjoy alongside a complimentary bottle of wine.
After a hearty hotel breakfast, you can return to the stunning surrounds of Ula for another beach day on Sunday, where smooth beats and live entertainment await.
Even if you’re not staying in the hotel, Ula Ras Al Khaimah is the perfect spot for a daycation if you’re in the emirate. Pool passes start from Dhs150 on weekdays and Dhs200 on weekends, which is partly redeemable on food and drink, and all include pool and beach access plus a sunbed and towel service. Stay for drinks and admire the sorbet-hued sunset, then head to the restaurant for Taste of Ula: a three-course menu paired with two drinks for Dhs250 per person.
