What ad­van­tages does Ras al Khaimah of­fer vis a vis the other emi­rates?

Ras Al Khaimah, the north­ern­most emi­rate of the UAE, is just a 45-minute drive from Dubai In­ter­na­tional Air­port and one hour from Dubai’s down­town. Along with nat­u­ral at­trac­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties, Ras Al Khaimah boasts a num­ber of an­cient ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites, giv­ing vis­i­tors a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into rich cul­ture. Ras Al Khaimah has suc­cess­fully lever­aged the ap­peal of its leisure of­fer­ings to in­ter­na­tional busi­ness trav­ellers and has now emerged as one of the top des­ti­na­tions in the in­ter­na­tional mar­ket­place. Tour op­er­a­tors and com­pa­nies from all in­dus­tries now pre­fer Ras Al Khaimah for their cor­po­rate events, con­fer­ences, ad­vi­sory board meet­ings, in­cen­tives, prod­uct launches and team­build­ing events. Ras Al Khaimah has over 5,000 rooms across 41 prop­er­ties, with more than 3,000 rooms in the pipe­line across 12 prop­er­ties by 2019. Build­ing on the strengths and achieve­ments of 2015, the emi­rate is at­tract­ing more in­vest­ment into the re­gion due to its unique of­fer­ing for the vis­i­tors.

The in­cen­tive groups can pick some of the best ho­tels and choose beach and wa­ter ac­tiv­i­ties and ex­pe­ri­ence ad­ven­ture in the moun­tains and desert or sim­ply soak up the cul­ture and tra­di­tions of a few thou­sand years. With the Al Mar­jan Tent, Ras Al Khaimah can be a venue for medium size con­gresses and the smaller ones eas­ily could be fa­cil­i­tated in our lovely ho­tels. What would In­dian busi­ness trav­ellers like best about Ras Al Khaimah? Are there spe­cial pro­vi­sions for peo­ple with spe­cial food pref­er­ences such as veg­e­tar­i­ans or Jains? Ras Al Khaimah’s strength lies in its ver­sa­til­ity and rich­ness of cul­ture. The ho­tel ac­com­mo­da­tion ranges from the lux­u­ri­ous and idyl­lic to the more func­tional prop­er­ties.
