Overnight getaway

Posted Feb 17, 2016
Wanted something easy to reach from Dubai but out of the city and luxurious and this fitted the bill well. A little more effort could be made with road signage though as we overshot and had to call for directions. Very much enjoyed our stay; massage, dinner and breakfast all first rate. It was a little windy but not much the hotel can do about that.

Great Hotel - ultimate luxury

Posted Dec 11, 2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: Maybe the water pressure in the shower...
Location: Nothing to do in RAK, this is all about relaxing. Dubai is 1 and a half hours away.
I went on a short trip to RAK from Dubai and this place just stood out when booking. It is really badly signposted when you are trying to find it, but once you do, thats it, you are in heaven! I have been to RAK once previously and didn't really like it, but Banyan Tree has changed my perception. When you arrive you have to get a short boat ride over to the resort. The welcome and check in in pleasant and swift. Every villa has its own pool and basically everything you could ever need from a hotel of this standing. The beds are comfortable, wi-fi is free, the pool is warm, everything is pretty much perfect. The restaurant has some good dishes and the staff here are pleasant too. They are always looking after you. We took a transfer to the other Banyan Tree hotel, Al Wadi, that is located half an hour away to see the Owl and Falcon show. The show is really good, but in my opinion the hotel is not as good as the Banyan Tree RAK beach. Overall, it's an amazing hotel, great for a luxury get away where all you want to do is relax! Enjoy!

Nice but no privecy

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Pros: Quite and clean room
Cons: Make it more private
Location: Nice location as its so quite and near a small new mall which you can handout incase you needed to.
I liked the hotel somehow but I thought it would be more private than what I found as its open to everybody to see you while you are swimming in your private pool which made it to me not private at all.

Very quiet villas in tranquil setting.

Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pros: The hotel staff were friendly and efficient.
Cons: The pathways and garden areas around the vilas
Location: The location for us was ideal. Very quiet and private. We did visit the other Banyan Tree hotel in the desert where there was many more activities.
We booked the hotel for a quiet rest and it met all our expedations
