Dubai, February 3, 2014
Hilton Worldwide has announced the official opening of the 265-room Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) following an extensive two-year refurbishment.
Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort, formerly known as Al Hamra Fort & Beach Resort, offers direct access to an 18-hole championship golf course.
It features a mix of 181 villas and suites, 75 deluxe guest rooms and nine luxurious suites.
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 Worldwide’s flagship brand.”
Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort features two temperature controlled pools, a children’s 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 hotel’s 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.
“Today’s 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.” – TradeArabia News Service
