Majestic Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah to celebrate its first birthday

Marking a year of magnificent, incomparable luxury, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is celebrating its first anniversary on August 1.

Since gracing the public with its upscale presence, the lavish property has been crowned with a total of 31 accolades, which include: MENA Travel Awards Best 5-Star New Hotel for The Year 2013 Silver; Five star Alliance Best New Hotel 2014; 2014 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award - Top Hotels with Exceptional Service - United Arab Emirates; among others.

The top-end property has also captured interest from the media, fashion designers, car launches and worldwide international event and wedding organisers.

Andre Herrenschmidt, general manager, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah declared: “We have had a phenomenal first year – the hotel has attracted people from all over the world but has been of particular appeal to guests from the region who enjoy the proximity and status of staying at a Waldorf Astoria.  

“Our very first guest in the hotel has already returned from overseas and a local visitor has stayed with us over 25 times in the space of a year.  The talented team have put the hotel on the map, awards have been given and compliments paid.  We anticipate a successful second year and look forward to welcoming new and regular guests to the hotel to experience True Waldorf Service.”

In light of its first birthday, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is encouraging the celebration of anniversaries with bespoke offerings that guests, together with their very own personal concierge team member, can create. Throughout the month of August guests looking to celebrate their special occasion can enjoy a summer offer, granting a percentage off room rates, including a guaranteed upgrade.
