It’s set to be a more relaxed iteration of the hedonistic party hotspot…

The UAE is already home to a beautiful Nikki Beach Resort & Spa in Dubai. But the brand is set to bring a second resort to the emirates, this time to Ras Al Khaimah’s picturesque Mina Al Arab. Announced earlier this month by RAK Properties, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Ras Al Khaimah will open as a new luxury lifestyle resort in the adventure emirate.

Set on Mina Al Arab, where you’ll also find hotels including InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah and the soon-to-open Anantara Mina Al Arab, the resort will be perched on its own private beach. While the Nikki Beach brand was born in hedonistic, glamourous beach clubs, the brand has expanded into resorts that offer a more barefoot luxury and relaxed experience. It’s this side of Nikki Beach that guests will experience at Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Ras Al Khaimah.

Although we don’t have an opening date for the property, we do know it will feature 155 guest rooms and villas that gaze towards the Gulf. A collection of signature restaurants, and Nikki Beach Resort staples like the Nikki Spa and Tone Gym will keep guests active, pampered and nourished.

Globally renowned Nikki Beach had earlier this month unveiled plans to expand into Ras Al Khaimah with a trio of residences on Marjan Island. Whilst a lot of the finer details are still to emerge, we do know that these fully furnished Nikki Beach Global branded apartments will come with expansive balconies, Gulf views, access to “a signature club house”, spa, fitness centre, a restaurant, retail outlets, and a hospitality suite. They’ll be located between Rixos Bab Al Bahr and DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island, and come to the emirate through a new collaboration with Aldar Properties.
