The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah Al Hamra Beach will offer 32 villas, each with a swimming pool, restaurants and a spa.

These additions will bring the number of properties operated under the The Ritz-Carlton brand in the United Arab Emirates to five. Its local portfolio already includes The Ritz-Carlton Dubai International Financial Centre (341 rooms), The Ritz-Carlton Dubai (294 rooms), and The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal (447 rooms).
