4 brilliant Eid staycation offers in Ras Al Khaimah
Rixos Bab Al Bahr
We’ve spent plenty of time both enjoying and writing about this all-inclusive resort since it opened last year and there’s a good chance one of the team will be there again for Eid. Simple deal: 20 percent off if you stay two nights and there’s a beach barbecue thrown in. There are also some major deals at the Anjana Spa. Frankly, you should be booking two nights here.
Where: Al Marjan Island
Eid offer: 20 percent off the best available rates for two-night stay, barbecue buffet included

Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa
All of the Hilton hotels in Ras Al Khaimah are offering this straightforward deal – and you have to book via the hotel’s individual website, not any group Hilton site – but this is our pick of the hotels in the family. With it’s balconies, wooden detailing and capacious swimming pools, it looks like a direct transplant from Madinat Jumeirah. Which is a compliment.
Where: Al Maareedh Street
Eid offer: 20 percent off if rooms are booked directly via the website

The rooms at this absurdly luxurious resort are big enough to play an impromptu game of badminton before dinner as it is, but if you want even bigger – tennis, maybe? – then you can get a King Junior Suite with a balcony and sea view for the same price. Like, they’re 84 square metres. That’s, like, huge. Book early, though, as only 20 suites per day will be available.
Where: Vienna Street
Eid offer: King Junior Suites for the price of a King Classic Room (September to December 30)

Al Wadi Desert
You might not want to do much more than hang around the pool all weekend in this Ritz-Carlton-run desert resort, so it’s great that families can get their own – complete with 100 square-metre deck – if they book one of the Bedouin-inspired villas. Add in a half-board package and some cultural activities, it ought to add up to a memorable escape. There’s also a spa and equestrian centre.
Where: Wadi Khadeja
Eid offer: Private pool villa, breakfast, dinner and falcon show for AED2,999
