Situated on the pristine white sands of Ras Al Khaimah’s tranquil Marjan Island, Rixos Bab Al Bahr enjoys the beautiful beach, stylish rooms, upmarket restaurants, stunning views, and comprehensive amenities you may expect from a five star beach resort in the Middle East. But what really sets Rixos Bab Al Bahr apart is the all-inclusive concept of this Ras Al Khaimah hotel. A resort with a difference: at Rixos Bab Al Bahr, guests can indulge in a variety of restaurants at no additional cost. With few exceptions, everything is inclusive from the kaleidoscope of cuisine in Seven Heights and the delicious selection of unlimited beverages in See & Sea, Mojito Bar and Inferno night club, to the diverse choice of entertainment and nightlife, kids clubs, spa, sports, and recreational activities. Five delectable a la carte restaurants, including a steakhouse and a seafood restaurant, offer a more diverse dining experience some at just a small supplement per person. The spectacular pyramid design of the resort ensures that nearly every one of the resort’s 650 rooms and suites enjoys a view of the crystal blue Arabian Gulf. In addition to being the ultimate getaway for families, one of the resort’s three pyramids is a dedicated adults-only zone and configured into suites to suit larger parties of friends and couples. Decorated in cool, sophisticated hues of azure and bronze, the rooms feature a wealth of comfort and convenience while the marble-clad bathrooms add an extra touch of luxury. As the perfect ultra all-inclusive resort for families, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Rixos Bab Al Bahr. At the heart of the resort, surrounded by waterways, is Seven Heights, our all day dining restaurant and one of the UAE’s largest buffet restaurants that features an array of world cuisines. Throughout the day, guests can enjoy breakfast here followed by lunch and dinner or they can snack on a variety of drinks and poplar dishes from the many poolside and beachside outlets - including a 24 hours Toast'n burger bar and Aisha lobby lounge Bar - all inclusive in the package. By night, the entertainment square opens up to a magical amphitheatre of five world-class a la carte restaurants*, including the popular Mojito Bar. Here guests can enjoy drinks and dinner against the beautiful backdrop of Marjan Island and spectacular entertainment show of international proclaim. Please note: ultra-premium food or beverage items may be subject to a surcharge. A la carte restaurant bookings are essential and can be made at the resort’s interactive kiosks adjacent to the lobby. DAY & NIGHTLIFE Whether it's winter or summer, Rixos Bab Al Bahr will keep you entertained. Our host of diverse entertainment options changes on a seasonal basis and offers options perfect for families, groups of friends and couples. During the winter months, the entertainment at our hotel focuses on the great outdoors. Organised fun and games in our temperature controlled pool make up the majority of the daytime activities, as do our weekend beach parties. Those looking to relax and enjoy the view will love the beachside adults-only Infinity Pool with its own bar. The cool winter nights are marked by live music, dancing, famous shows and breath-taking acrobatics at Entertainment Square, our purpose-built amphitheater. Revelers can party late into the night at the nearby nightclub, Inferno. As the temperatures rise during summer months, the evening entertainment moves indoors. Guests can still enjoy daytime activities, which revolve around live music performances at Seven Heights. Evening entertainment includes live music and jazz nights, karaoke, quizzes, retro parties, and theme nights continue at Mojito Bar, before the action moves to the nightclub Inferno. LEISURE Take your beach experience to a new level of luxury with Cabana Oasis at Rixos Bab Al Bahr. Select from one of four unique packages and enjoy a day lounging by the pristine shoreline. Guests can also wander the numerous pathways that wind around the resort. Studded with upmarket boutiques offering a range of enticing retail options, the souq-like paths offer a shady retreat from the daytime sun or a beautiful location to enjoy a star-lit evening walk. For those wishing to venture a little further afield, the resort is located just ten minutes away from the shops and facilities of Al Hamra Mall and Al Hamra Golf Course. Also just a few minutes away is the Ice Land Waterpark – fun for all the family – and many of Ras Al Khaimah’s cultural and heritage sites. SPA & WELLNESS Take a deep breath and relax with Rixos Bab Al Bahr Spa. Two ultra-luxurious Ottoman spas – one for men, one for women – are the largest spas in Ras Al Khaimah and provide everything you need to achieve a state of complete and utter relaxation. Whether you have selected a spa vacation, or are simply enjoying a respite from the excitement of the resort, Rixos Bab Al Bahr Spa is the ultimate haven of serenity. Each spa has a secluded private swimming pool area – perfect for sunbathing or enjoying a cool water dip whereas the most enchanting area of the spa is undeniably the traditional Turkish Hammams, where you can embark on the time-honoured ritual of deep cleansing scrub, undertaken beneath the decorative architecture of the Hammam’s central dome. Guests can also enjoy unlimited access to the steam room and sauna and quiet reading and relaxing areas. In addition to the wide range of complimentary facilities, guests can indulge in a host of pampering spa wellness therapies, beauty treatments and a beauty salon. MEETING & CONFERENCE FACILITIES Home to one of Ras Al Khaimah’s most prestigious event halls, the dedicated Conference Centre is the ultimate destination for business meetings and corporate events.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We just checked in and so far our experience and first impressions have been made very special by Ahmed at the check in desk. He is so friendly and made our day. To be greeted by elk at the beginning of your holiday is an amazing feeling to start with. So special mentions for Ahmed and Adrianne at the check in desk. Superb hospitality

We had a wonderful time at the Rixos as always. The room was renovated and really nice, clean and very big. The best in the hotel is the very kindly staff. Especially Yaseen, Sagar and Mahmood from seven heights fullfilled us every wish. Special thanks goes to the lifeguard Mohamed and all the team. He did a wonderful job in keeping the children safe in the water and helping if anyone had a problem.

It was packed so full, like worse than mall of the Emirates carrefour on a Friday night. Seriously the food court had people crawling over eachother like rats it was disgusting. Screaming kids everywhere all across the resort. Oh and by the way you can only eat at one of the restaurants (the only places where there aren't screaming kids) if you make a booking at reception before like 3pm or something. Also they won't tell you that so you'll need to somehow guess

Dear 926kiarag, Thank you for choosing Rixos Bab Al Bahr and taking a moment to share your experiences with us! It saddens to see that your recent stay was not up to your personal expectations. However, unfortunately we were not able to identify your reservation as under "Kiara G" no name is existing in our records. Please be informed that we are a very family popular resort and this is the reason why we are always good occupied. Sometimes it may happen that some of our facilities getting busier than usual. Then, we usually invite our guests to use the opening or later hours of the restaurants to dine in a more quiet and peaceful atmosphere. In regards to a la carte restaurant arrangements we would like to mention yes the hotline has specific working hours but which is from 9 AM to 5 PM not until 3 PM. Obviously those restaurants need to make preparations according to the number. Therefore, to extend this time is not possible. Those information are also clearly mentioned in our Welcome letters as well as hotel reservation confirmation. Lastly we would like to mention that the Rixos brand stands for the huge food and beverage variety with the numerous cuisines. All our food is always high quality with fresh and tasteful ingredients prepared at every restaurant for every meal, and is highly complimented by our guests. It is sad that you were not in the same opinion. Besides, we would like mention that we do not tolerate this kind of wording about any food items especially in a world where food insecurity and hunger such an important subject is. We remain only with regards,

We have had an amazing stay. The weather food and staff have been amazing. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. My days started with daily yoga with Lilya. Trying aerial yoga was great fun and Hatha yoga was ideal for all. The pools are clean and well maintained as is also the beach. The selection of food is vast and very tasty. Evening entertainment is very professional the masquerade ball was amazing. Hope to come back next year.

We spent 13 nights here, returned last Wednesday. The food and service were excellent. We are not fans of buffet style so utilised the a la carte restaurants every night. The Turkish was amazing as was the Asian but the Fish was our favourite. We didn't enjoy the steak in the Meat Feast, maybe we were unlucky as people we spoke to really enjoyed it. It is a family friendly hotel and as such the children's pool were very busy, thank goodness for the adult only pool. We didn't find the sunbeds very comfortable, great quality, just not to our taste, we did get used to them. I would like to personally thank the following staff members for outstanding service. Tara & Sanallula who maintained the communal toilets outside, they were always cheerful and polite, not the nicest job but the toilets were always immaculate Edwin at the adult pool bar Abdul at the Sea & See bar Ibraham, Basirat & Nurlan at the fish restaurant - they delivered the best service, could not fault them, lovely people Breakfast is available in the fish restaurant every day, a smaller offering but a lovely quiet setting looking out to sea, we absolutely loved it there. We had a couple of lunches at the Toast & Burger bar, small menu but very nice, chicken tikka burger is delicious The buffet in the restaurant at lunchtime was really really good, roast duck, seafood pasta, the list is endless, and it changed every day, I loved the salads and olive focaccia bread. There is live entertainment every night, we thoroughly enjoyed eating at one of the restaurants where you could see the stage, fabulous. The area where the restaurants are is gorgeous, reminded me of a square in a small resort, didn't feel like you were in a hotel. At peak times there were circa 1,900 people there, but it was still quiet. We enjoyed a couple of massages which were very good, approx £100 each, not the cheapest but very good. If you want to use the restaurants, then book early as they get full. You can also book the Italian for lunch, nice for a change, Caesar salad is lovely. Finally, I would like to thank Burong who helped us to book restaurants.
