Beach Hotel

by Kuznetsov_Sergey about Al Hamra Fort Hotel

5 stars Al Hamra Fort Hotel & Beach Resort is located by a natural lagoon. It is designed as a victorious Arabian Fort reviving the 1001 Arabian Nights in the style of a traditional Arabian village with wind towers.
It is located along stunning white washed beaches of Ras Al Khaimah surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and swimming pools.
Unfortunately we stopped there not so long as we would like but we could enjoy its stunning views.

You can watch my 4 min 11 sec HD Video Ras Al Khaimah Al Hamra Resort out of my Youtube channel with Walid Tawfic - Ghajaryan.

Ras al Khaimah

by Aphro about Al Hamra Fort Hotel

Beach hotel in northern Emirate of Ras al Khaimah.
It is rather remote in that it is not IN Ras al Khaimah but there is a bus into the town there and they will also transport you into Dubai for shopping.
(Ras al Khaimah is a very 'traditional' emirate, with little to see although the museum is good and the hotel arranges various sight-seeing opportunities for some local colour) Lagoon setting, pleasant style.
Cheaper than similar properties in Dubai due to it's remote setting, this could be a bargain if you are offered it in a package tour and just want a beach holiday to soak up the sun.

Red sands desert

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Ras Al Khaimah is comprised of stark wilderness, magnificent red sand dunes, rugged mountains, rocky valleys, remote villages, and pockets of green oases.
Al Hamra Fort Hotel makes a comfortable base in which to explore the surrounding desert.

While exploring Ras Al Khaimah you can watch the red sands desert, where they are surrounded by dunes that tower around them.

excellent resort

by TripAdvisor Member H_MESURIA

I went to Al Hamra Fort with my family for 7 nights and I absolutly loved it. The accomodation was booked without any hassal through Value Added Travel. The member of staff (SOL) was extreamly helpful and polite. I stayed at the village town house which was very nice and comfortable, and cleaned everyday by the staff there. It was very peaceful and relaxing which made my stay very pleasant. I particually enjoyed the Mongolian BBQ on the beach.
All the facilties in the resort were really good. There was two large pools for everyone and a clean beach. The room it self had a great view and a warm atmosphere.
I would just like to thank Value Added Travel for recommending the hotel to me. I researched more information about this hotel on their website and would like to go again.

Nice Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Lucasss

We have just returned from Ras Al Khaimah 31st August 06 staying at Al Hamra Fort. We stayed in the golf view junior suite which was very nice we upgraded from a town house room which was to small for us and a child they are really suitable for singles or a couple. We had our 8 year old son with us there`s not much going on for a 8 year olds although there is a kids club not much was happening there.
Al Hamra will suit those who like a quiet relaxing holiday, the entertainment is poor and there is no poolside activities it`s very quiet. Building work is going on but it caused us no problems . The service is great and very friendly, we booked B/B most days we went to Ras Al Khaimah to eat which is about 20mins drive but only cost us about £3.50 for a taxi or the hotel do provide a daily shuttle bus twice daily , in the shopping mall there is lots of fast food outlets which are really very good value try the Lebonese the food is great and the Chinese.
The shuttle bus to Dubai put on every day by the hotel gets booked up so book early to get seats really they need to to provide a bigger coach or another bus to avoid disappointment and it only goes to the Deira city centre shopping mall, it would be much better if there was a drop off at Wild Waddi or the Emirates mall. Al Hamra Fort is a good 45mins on the Emirates road to Dubai but because of the traffic getting in and out of Dubai it will take 1hour 30mins on average. We would go back to Al Hamra in a couple of years time when the village is completed and there is more on offer. This will be a lovely resort when it is finished. But to far out with not much to do in Ras Al Khaimah at present.

Excellent hotel

by TripAdvisor Member jammyh

I have just returned from a week's holiday to the Al Hamra Fort Hotel in Ras Al Khaimah. Most flights from the UK fly into the airport in Dubai, and then the hotel arranges transfers to the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. I landed at 8pm, and arrived at the hotel at 9.45pm, after an excellent transfer in air conditioned luxury via the almost empty new E11 Emirates Road that opened last October.

The staff in the hotel are wonderful and couldn't have been more helpful. My room was in the hotel grounds and was a garden view room. It was a 5 minute walk from the main hotel complex, although golf buggies were available to drive you to your room. The room was huge and very well decorated, the bathroom had a separate shower and bathtub, and there was a cleaning service 3 times a day for new towels or new sheets etc.

The restaurants were of a very good standard and room service was prompt with lots of choice on the menu. Breakfast was served in 3 different locations and there was a very good choice of hot and cold, sweet and savoury food.

The beach is kept very clean, and both pools have plenty of loungers around them.

I had to travel to Dubai twice whilst I was there. The first time was for a 9am business meeting. We left at 7.20am and arrived in the centre of Dubai at 8.45am. Traffic is bad at rush hour, but you only really hit it on the outskirts of the city, so it wasn’t too bad. The second time I had a lunch meeting at Jumeirah Beach at 1pm. I left the hotel at 11.15am, and we arrived at the Hilton Jumeirah Beach at 12.40pm. The last trip was from Jumeirah Beach to the hotel at 5.30pm. I arrived back at 7.10pm.

The hotel can arrange taxi transfers. One way is 150 DHS or if you prefer, you can book a return trip for 300 DHS and the driver will stay with you for 6 hours (including the journey time).

All in all, I would really recommend this hotel, and definitely hope to return. Its not a place to go if you want to experience the hustle and bustle of Dubai centre, but its easy to get there for a day of shopping or an evening out. Taxi drivers at all the major Dubai hotels also don’t have an issue about driving out to Ras Al Khaimah, so its easy to get back after dinner etc.

I can imagine that at peak season the hotel is very busy, but right now, there are some fantastic deals to go there, and its very quiet. There were some days when I felt like I had the beach to myself!!

Just the place to chill

by TripAdvisor Member flightcheck

we stayed for a week it was just amazing. The facilities were fantastic as were the restaurants. The food was excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful. The grounds were kept immaculate. I would certainly recommend this hotel to everyone. It was our first visit to the Emirates and we will definitely be returning.

Not bad for a building site...

by TripAdvisor Member RadioBunny

We were there as part of a wedding party and most of us stayed in the Village part of the complex, but the bride & groom also had a beach-front villa and then they had a large room closer to the main hotel building, so we got a fairly good idea of the place.

My husband was glad that he hadn't bothered to bring his golf clubs as the course was still being built! We had a stab at playing on the mini-golf course (a holiday favourite for us wherever we go!) but they'd managed to plant the wrong kind of trees over it for shade, so they were shedding leaves, polleny things, flowers, bits of bark etc so badly that there was a guy employed permanently it seemed to go & sweep each mini-golf hole before we played it. (It was pretty much covered in stuff again by the time we moved on to the next one!) One tree word for you guys - PALM!! THAT's what to plant over a mini-golf course!! Perhaps I'm talking a poor guy out of his sweeping-mini-golf-holes-all-day job though...

The room we had in the Village part was lovely, if not a little small, but the bathroom was nice, there was a v easy to use safe, the decoration & furniture was very good, the TV had at least 2 or 3 channels that came in properly (the cheaper hotels in the UAE don't tend to bother sorting out the TV channels) and there was a fridge though it was a bit teeny - we dumped out all the mini-bar stuff and put our own in (replacing all their stuff for the mini-bar report before check-out obviously!) - the good-sized balcony had nice wooden furniture and overlooked the pool and was shaded by lovely big palm trees. All v nice. BUT. With their 'Fort' theme all the doors in the townhouses in the Village were big ol' heavy wooden ones that for some bizarre reason had no slow-close arm on them ie they SLAMMED shut with a reverberating echo around the communal marble-finish staircases like you wouldn't believe! Sounded like gunshots going off beside your head anytime somebody forgot to close their door by hand.

Then there's the golf-carts that ferry the people staying in the Village to the main part of the resort. Well, they have to use the golf carts for something...since the damn course isn't yet built... When they come...WHEN...they bring guests to & from the main reception to the Village reception. WHEN they come. They like to hide in the carparks beside the Al Jazeera restaurant and Malibu nightclub for the odd crafty fag...so be warned...you might want to walk it instead like we did.

Checking in was nothing short of a Fawlty Towers classic episode. My husband even resorted to going behind reception & fixing their photocopier for them as it was one of the things stopping our party from getting checked in...but trying to get our passports back was so difficult it was laughable. We checked out a couple of hours before we needed to so that if the poo hit the fan for the reception staff again that at least we wouldn't miss our transport back to the airport.
Customer service is something that is amusingly absent from the tourist industry in the Emirates...always has been, probably always will be. Not that it should be as syrupy as the States, but a little bit of efficency would go a long way :)

By the way, I counted over 15 (gave up after that!) genuine Health & Safety violations in the hotel buildings and grounds while we were there. A personal nerdy hobby of mine when in countries that have no H&S standards enforced.

A 'quick' lunch at the beachfront bar took 40 mins to arrive and there was only one other table ordering. So, 4 people to serve...hardly run off their feet. I had to go in and 'enquire' where I found the manager tearing strips off his crew for being the 'worst he'd ever worked with'. Nice. Shame then when the food came that one order had to go right back - cardboard king prawns. Ugh.

We were there for our friends wedding and the same venue managed to pull the finger out and prepare the most fantastic food that same night. Or maybe they were the 2nd shift?! I've posted a couple of snaps from the beach wedding. Pity the fat oiled-up blokes in the nasty speedos kept standing way too close...some of the wedding album is gonna have a lot of photoshop work done to it!!

Would we go back? Maybe...in about 5 years time, when it's finished. And the staff have done a few customer service training courses.

Al Hamra Fort.....Is it good?

by Heavens-Mirror

me and my new husband are thinking of going to this hotel but not sure whether to stick to b*b or upgrade to half board? Is it worth doing? And if so what restaurants can you eat in?

Also we have not been to this place before and wondered what it is like.
We like to relax with maybe the odd day out on an excursion etc.
Please tell me a little more about it if you have been.
Thanks,
Stacey xxx

Re: Al Hamra Fort.....Is it good?

Hi there
I have been to the hotel for the day, but not stayed there overnight. It's a bit dated, but had a nice pool and we had a nice meal there (in the restaurant that overlooks the pool - in the outdoor terrace area). This may help you in deciding to take the half-board option. Also, there didn't look to be many alternative places to eat nearby if I remember rightly, so I would take the option. They also do camel rides for a small fee. Looking on a ladies forum here in Dubai that I use a lot, most reviews have been good of the hotel. Apparently they have a new section of the hotel where most people stayed and they liked it - apparently rooms are large. I have seen deals for the hotel too on a frequent basis - there are many deals on for Ramadan and the summer in most of the hotels in Dubai and the surrounding emirates. The Big Red dune is nice to see around Hatta and you can rent quad bikes too which is good fun. All the best.

Have you seen the official web site of the hotel:

http://www.alhamrafort.com/subpage.aspx?pageId=55&langId=1

Lots of information available there!!
Good luck !~~~~~~!XXXXXX :-)

Re: Al Hamra Fort.....Is it good?

Do you have any idea of what the prices are like there in comparison to Dubai?
We went to Dubai in 2007 and 2008 and prices had increased in just one yr.
I was hoping this resort may be a little cheaper. x

Re: Al Hamra Fort.....Is it good?

by chizz

The price we paid was not bad for our meal, but we didn't have alcohol. Just read that there's an alcohol shop in the mall over the road if that helps (a 5 min walk) - you could eat sometimes at the mall outlets too, although I don't know which ones they have over there. We did stop at the mall and I know there's a supermarket too.

Re: Al Hamra Fort.....Is it good?

by chizz

P.S. - Personally, I would stay in a cheaper hotel in Dubai than out in Hatta, as there's really not much to do out there - unless you just want to sunbathe and do little else (which I totally appreciate is what many people like to do!!). There are some good value hotels in Dubai such as Arabian Park, Golden Sands and other serviced apartments and you would be close to the city to do other activities...
