Staycation at Doubletree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island

We had a short and sweet staycation in Ras Al Khaimah recently to relax. And since I will be due next month we just had to grab the opportunity to enjoy the summer season.

We opted to stay at Doubletree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island as I got a really good deal being a member of HiltonhHonors. I got a room for around AED 594 per night exclusive of taxes and breakfast. The cost would be around AED 700 or 800 if you are a non member. It is very easy to register, you can click on the link and just fill in your details. You will be alerted by email as well of promotions they have.

It was an easy drive from Al Ain to RAK through Emirates Road and we reached in almost 2 hours. We stopped by Al Hamra Mall for lunch prior to checking in. Al Hamra mall was close by as well so we had dinner there during our stay.

We went on a weekday, Thursday and there were a lot of people. I already checked in online but still had to wait as the room was not yet available, which was frustrating as it was already around 3pm and check in was at 2pm. The receptionist, Rohit, saw my frustration and opted to upgrade and we were given a room at their bay club which was their new extension. It is more expensive than their usual hotel rooms. This calmed the preggy lady who was about to burst and they gave complimentary cookies which were absolutely delicious and I was one happy preggy lady again.

The balcony was really relaxing giving you a perfect view of the place
The bay club rooms have their own infinity pool and the beach was easily accessible.

What I love about Doubletree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island is that they have a waterpark for the kids to enjoy which was a definite advantage.

The place was huge and there are lots of  swimming pool in different areas for all the guests as well as the huge beach access. There was even a Zumba session free for all guest who wants to exercise. We stayed for 2 nights and will definitely stay there again. It is highly recommended, two thumbs up.
