While there’s no shortage of amazing hotels, we’re definitely excited for more, especially when they remind us of an exotic Maldives escape. While Ras Al Khaimah is not traditionally compared to the honeymoon island destination, it soon might be with the addition of Anantara Mina Al Arab.
Set to open in 2022 and located in the new Mina Al Arab district along the coast of Ras Al Khaimah will be this stunning Anantara eco-resort. Complete with 300 guest rooms, suites and – the part that’s really caught our eye – overwater villas (Maldivan style).
There will also be an overwater restaurant serving Thai cuisine, as well as a seafood grill and beach & pool bar.
There’s an outdoor swimming pool, as well as mini pools in many of the rooms.
Guests are welcome to relax in their sanctuary and enjoy the club, which includes a gym, aerobics and yoga studios, squash and tennis courts.
