Wellness Tourism on the Rise at Ras al-Khaimah
Wellness and deep relaxation are part of a tourism segment that has become very competitive in recent years. Alleviating stress by means of pampering is an indulging activity that many tourists seek for various purposes. For many individuals, the goal is not only to get away from the tensions brought on by their daily activities but also to immerse themselves in luxurious settings they don’t get to experience very often. Many all-inclusive resorts offer relaxation packages to their guests, but not all of them are able to deliver a truly indulging experience.
In Ras al-Khaimah, a rising tourism destination in the United Arab Emirates, new relaxation packages are being rolled out by major resort properties such as the Hilton RAK Spa, which offers its very own skincare brand. The Body Paradise treatment starts with a Bean Body Coffee Scrub, which is followed by a massage therapy session. Another treatment offered by the Hilton RAK Spa is the Coffee Body Polish, which is a full-body scrub that exfoliates, moisturizes and promotes healthy circulation.
It is no secret that women tend to be more skilled in the art of arranging relaxation packages, which explains why the Ritz-Carlton RAK, located in the scenic Al Wadi desert, recently appointed a female general manager. The spa amenities at this desert resort, which features Bedouin architecture, are extremely luxurious. Even by the standards of Abu-Dhabi and Dubai, the Ritz-Carlton RAK offers more luxuriant relaxation, and this has a lot to do with the geography of Ras al-Khaimah, a region blessed with a mild climate that is extremely for spring and winter tourism.
Another resort property that recently rolled out relaxation packages is the Rixos Bab Al Bahr, an all-inclusive hotel for the whole family. The spa at this property is the most spectacular of Ras al-Khaimah; it offers special packages for couples who want to decompress and relax while enjoying intimate settings, and the cabanas at the private beach allow guests to get an immersive and peaceful vacation experience.
As previously mentioned, Ras al-Khaimah is perfect for relaxation vacations because of its gentle weather, but there are also historical factors to consider. This settlement has been continuously inhabited for 7,000 years, and it has always enjoyed oasis status. Bedouin tribes from across the Arabian Peninsula have always considered this region to be a place where they could away from the harshness of the deserts; Ras al-Khaima is blessed with aquifers, creeks, rivers, and vegetation that keep the region nice and cool. Furthermore, Ras al-Khaimah is not as crowded as Dubai, and it is free from the hustle and bustle of a hectic metropolitan area.
The tourism miracle of Ras al-Khaimah can be attributed in large part to the visionary work of HH Saud bin Saqr al Qasimi, a leader who firmly believes in the power of tourism as an industry that can boost organic development of his beloved Emirate. There is more than just relaxation and wellness to enjoy in Ras al-Khaimah; if you are interested in adventure, sightseeing, and enjoying the excellent hospitality that Arabian culture is known to extend, you will certainly find it here.
