What’s up you guys? If you have been following me on instagram, you’ll see that not too long ago, we went to the United Arab Emirates .Our first 2 days were spent at this lovely sea side resort called The Cove Rotana in Ras Al Khaimah. It is an hour away from Dubai and it was the perfect start to fuel the adventure we were going to have during the next few days…
As soon as we drove by their grand entrance, I could not help but feel excited since I knew that the resort was going to be amazing and from the looks of it, I could surely have some time to rest and relax. The hotel surely welcomed each of us and made us feel right at home properly. We were given Arabic Coffee while checking in and for me, it was a good way to leave a first impression…
We were then taken to our villas by a golf cart since we checked in at night time, and we’re given a brief tour of their facilities. Personalized welcome notes and a bed full of roses were also waiting inside our room but I’ll tell you all about that later!
So, let me take you on a virtual tour around The Cove Rotana Resort. I’m sure while scrolling down, you’ll fall in love with this place as quickly as we all did!
The Resort boasts of its unique Mediterranean Architecture, and their wide open spaces. Their manicured gardens are also a wonderful addition that compliments their villas. I loved how their traditional charm mixed with arabic culture blended so well to create this lovely atmosphere by the seaside.
It’s an understatement to say that the rooms were good. They were mindblowingly amazing!
Two Bedroom Villa-This is where we stayed for two nights and three days. We had our own pool outside of the room, with an amazing view of their man-made lake and the beach just a few meters away. Imagine waking up here to a beautiful sunrise, and having your own breakfast served by the poolside–just outside your room! The feeling was just ethereal. They also have laundry and dry cleaning services and of course, our favorite–Wi-Fi connection! The place is so cozy and chill and I did not want to leave ever!

Since the resort was so big, we needed golf carts to go around the place or whenever we would eat. I loved how with just a call, they immediately went to our room to pick us up. The service was just excellent. When we requested for breakfast to be served in our room, they immediately catered to this request like professionals and for me, it’s instant plus points for the resort.

The food definitely did not disappoint. Having graduated in a school known for its culinary awards, I knew when the food being served was excellent and all the restaurants we tried here in the resort was really good. The cove offers it’s own flavor and taste, and each meal was prepared with love I could tell. Breakfast had several cuisine choices which is what I always look for when staying at a 5 star resort. Lunch by the pool was amazing and perfect for munchies after a tiring swim. Dinner at Basilico was romantic, and the food was even better. I died when I tried their burrata salad and went to heaven with their strawberry sherbet.
To sum it all up, this Mediterranean styled resort off the coast of UAE is perfect for travellers who want to relax and to families who want to enjoy their vacation as well. Their excellent facilities, rooms and service– not to mention their food were all matchless.
I would definitley come back here if I could! I had the best days of my life here and sure enough you will love it here as well. To book a stay at cove rotana: Click here.
