Dead cockroach in bathroom
Generally it was good stay but the villa was a bit old. And I found a big dead cockroach in bathroom after I checked in. I had to hide it for my wife. (She still does not know about this cockroach)

The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert Unforgettable I was looking for that memorable hotel experience for a staycation, you know the one that you could never do as a 20- to 40-year-old so I went all out for the Ritz-Carlton in Ras Al Khaimah. I always wondered if these luxury hotels really lived up to the hype (and the cost). What I found out was if you want perfection in service from the moment you walk thru the foyer then this is the place to come, we were there for two nights and could have easily stayed on for at least a week. The villa was out of this world with private views into the desert with wildlife walking by pretty much continuously. Oryx, Gazelles and birds gave us a nature show every day from dawn to dusk as we floated around in our private infinity edge pool. We had private bicycles outside the villa or we could easily call for a golf cart to take us to a luxury breakfast or aperitifs on the roof top moon bar to watch the sun go down. The breakfast is to die for with a house speciality “Eggs Benedict” which was a huge winner for me, but with so many other fresh options available on offer. The hotel itself can be described as the opulence and beauty with a huge dose of Arabic class, it meandering across a 500-hectare desert scape. We are in the Al Rimal Villas that are impressive, private and unforgettable, I have reviewed other hotels in the UAE none that are more quintessential eastern culture in nature. We would highly recommend the Ritz-Carlton
