Who said you needed to leave the country to treat yourself to a decadent hotel stay? With the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah on our doorstep, certainly not us…

Dreaming of a destination that offers as much excitement and elegance as an overseas location, without the stress of an airport? Look no further than the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah. Set between a dramatic mountainscape and a white sand beach that fringes the stunning Arabian Gulf, it’s the perfect place to visit this September.

With its idyllic setting, the hotel and its facilities are second to none. Leave the alarm clock and planner at home, and fill your days dipping your toes in the ocean or lounging by the pool. If you’re craving an adventure out of the city, take a traditional dhow boat to the beautiful Musandam Peninsula where you may spot a dolphin or two, or book a helicopter ride to take in the majestic views of the Hajar Mountains and dunes from above.

If you can pry yourself away from your junior suite  — with its sunken bath, luxurious bed and sprawling balcony —  indulge your tastebuds with a visit to one of the hotel’s top-notch restaurants. With sumptuous steaks and seafood on offer at Lexington Grill, Mediterranean delights at Al Fayrouz, or Japanese cuisine at Umi, there’s something for everyone.

No vacation is complete without a little R&R, so be sure to book yourself into the spa, which has an extensive treatment menu using Heaven skincare, QMS and Voya, for some well-deserved me-time. So, what are you waiting for?

THE PRIZE:  Three nights in a junior suite including breakfast and dinner
