For the little ones checking in, there is a special junior check-in counter. For a spot of fun at the hotel, there is a dedicated children’s club with a varied, fun-filled program. There’s also a new unique concierge program for the little ones where children can step into the world of hospitality for a day and learn new skills.
The food corner…
The resort’s dining venues, lounges and bars have also undergone a makeover. This includes the signature Japanese restaurant UMI restaurant known for its authentic sushi, entertaining Teppanyaki demonstrations, and the UAE’s largest sake collection. American-style steak house Lexington Grill & Bar (pictured above) has also been given a makeover, and foodies have got to check it out for its dry-aged tender steak, wines and creative cocktails.
Sunset Beach Lounge has also been revamped where guests can enjoy their evenings with tunes from a vibrant DJ and breathtaking sunsets.
There’s a new concept that has been introduced – Sijar Lounge. It’s not just a new concept to the resort, but to Ras Al Khaimah, too.
Hit the pause button…

The resort’s golden masterpiece, the legendary six-meter Waldorf Astoria clock in the heart of the lobby has even undergone a makeover. The clock showcases a pearlized domed glass dial with a captivating aquamarine centre, complemented by a gold-plated Whitehurst 7-day mechanical movement. The clock pays homage to Arabic roots and features rotating prayer rings for precise prayer times. It bears an inscription from ancient Bedouin songs for added historical significance.
