Hilton has expanded its portfolio of hotels in the UAE with the official opening of the 265-room Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort, formerly known as Al Hamra Fort & Beach Resort, following an extensive two-year refurbishment.

With direct access to an 18-hole championship golf course and with views of the Persian Gulf and nearby Hajar Mountains, Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort features an inspired mix of 181 villas and suites, 75 deluxe guest rooms and nine luxurious suites.

Regarded as a landmark hotel in the prestigious Al Hamra district of Ras Al Khaimah, the comprehensive conversion of the property has thoughtfully preserved the unique identity of the buildings, originally designed to reflect the ancient forts which still speckle the local landscape.

Rob Palleschi, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts said, The striking fortress-style design and iconic status of the original hotel helped shape our conversion plans. We have carefully maintained the distinctive character of the property and successfully combined those traditional qualities with the modern hallmark attributes of Hilton Worldwides flagship brand. Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort is now a world-class hotel and a welcome addition to the Hilton Hotels & Resorts global portfolio.

Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort features a wealth of quality amenities including two temperature controlled pools, a childrens club, spa treatment rooms and a 500-metre private beach. In addition to golf, active guests can enjoy a game of tennis, select from a wide range of water sports or opt for a work out in the hotels on-site fitness centre.

A comprehensive menu of eight dining and entertainment options will feature a wide range of international delicacies and regional specialties as well as specialist favourites, such as the upcoming Mai Tai bar, with its Polynesian inspired cuisines and Club Malibu, offering an exclusive club vibe with live DJ.

With an adjoining newly revamped 800-capacity convention centre boasting state-of-the-art amenities and a one-stop professional advice shop, Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort is destined to become a leading choice for planners seeking the very best in facilities and service for conferences, meetings and events.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa said, Hilton Worldwide has enjoyed a presence in Ras Al Khaimah for over 12 years and that longevity with the Emirate and the close relationship we enjoy with the owners of Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort, has served us well in establishing a strong and growing portfolio. Todays opening introduces our sixth hotel to Ras Al Khaimah and will provide impetus and choice to international travellers, MICE visitors and local weekend guests to visit this increasingly popular destination.

Ras Al Khaimah is the most northern Emirate in the UAE and a land of contrast with red sandy desert, lush green plains, interspersed with creeks and lagoons, and beautiful mountains, the highest of which often has snowfall in winter. The hotel is around a 45 minutes drive from Dubai International Airport.
