Travel Daily ME - - News -

The Cove Rotana Re­sort has re­cently un­der­gone a sig­nif­i­cant ex­ten­sion, adding to its ex­ist­ing five-star of­fer­ing. Sit­u­ated on a wa­ter in­let on the Ras Al Khaimah beach­front over­look­ing the Ara­bian Gulf, the re­sort re­sem­bles a Mediter­ranean vil­lage by the sea.

The ex­pan­sion has added 112 stan­dard and su­pe­rior rooms to the re­sort, along with 10 ju­nior suites and 21 ex­ec­u­tive suites.

It has also seen the ad­di­tion of an all-day din­ing restau­rant, an out­door pool with pool bar and three slides, and a kid’s club and pool.

In line with the re­cent ex­pan­sion, Rotana Ho­tels & Re­sorts has se­lected its top five rea­sons to visit Ras Al Khaimah:

1. Ras Al Khaimah is di­verse and the most moun­tain­ous emi­rate. It is home to Jebel Jais, the tallest moun­tain in the United Arab Emi­rates. The Mid­dle East’s first com­mer­cial via fer­rata is now open for those seek­ing an adrenaline­fu­elled day on Jebel Jais Moun­tain. There’s a choice of three thrilling zip lines, travers­ing more than one kilo­me­tre across the moun­tain.

2. With a desert oa­sis right on its doorstep, ad­ven­ture seekers can take part in an ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing dune bash­ing, camel rid­ing and horse rid­ing.

3. Ras al Khaimah of­fers an au­then­tic Ara­bian ex­pe­ri­ence with a col­lec­tion of his­tor­i­cal sites. Steeped in more than 5,000 years of his­tory found in ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites such as Dhayah Fort and Sheba’s Palace, there is plenty of her­itage to dis­cover. It is also home to the his­tor­i­cal vil­lage of Jazi­rat Al Hamra, the last tra­di­tional town still stand­ing in the United Arab Emi­rates.

4. Sit­u­ated on the Per­sian Gulf, Ras Al Khaimah is known for its white sandy beaches and glis­ten­ing wa­ters, all of which pro­vide a beau­ti­ful set­ting for a re­lax­ing day by the sea.

5. Visit the city of Ras Al Khaimah, where a nat­u­ral creek di­vides into two and souks sit com­fort­ably along­side mod­ern shop­ping malls.
